What impressed you positively?

"Mrs. Sullivan and Dr. O'Toole. Mrs. Sullivan strikes me as a no-nonsense type lady. Very articulate, and she's very clear...if you interview at a school and don't get in, you were not able to adequately convey why you are a perfect fit for their school. At least for me, that comment was empowering. In the one hour introduction to Georgetown med, Mrs. Sullivan makes you want to be a part of the Georgetown tradition of community outreach and patient advocacy. Dr. O'Toole is also great. Very friendly, very funny, and you can sense his sincere desire to help the underserved and make changes for the better in medicine. Out of all my interviews, Georgetown really had me at attention and inspired. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was one of my shortest interviews, but also the most pointed. It was a little awkward because I had to wait for 5-10 minutes, occupying myself by looking at wall decorations and family pictures, while my interviewer read my AMCAS file. He seemed a little brusque at first, but as the interview continued, he became more engaging. Ended on a great note. " Report Response
