What are your general comments?

"The day starts at 10. First there is an introduction to the school by Ms. Sullivan (who is awesome by the way!)She does a very good job of laying down the facts about Georgetown, she also does a very good job of selling the school in a subtle way. Not that she really needs to, it is an amazing institution. This lasts about an hour, then there is a financial aid presentation that lasts 30 min. There isn't anything new if you've had one before. After that there is a tour given by first years. The facilities at the school are good, but nothing that stands out compared to the other schools I have been to. What really sells the school to me is they way they teach medicine there and the philosophy that they use. After the tour there is lunch with the dean. (Catered sandwhiches) Then the interview. I interviewed with a 4th year. He was way cool, and was interested in getting to know me as person. I guess there are 4 or 5 questions that all of the interviewers are supposed to ask, but he said to me that we'll get those out of the way first so that we could talk about real life which I thought was really cool. We hit it off really well, and the rest was very conversational, and he told me what his experience was like at Georgetown." Report Response
