"AMCAS, GW secondary, read over website. Knowing it was closed file helped direct the focus to more inward questions (Why medicine, plans if you don't get in)" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That you could really be out by 1 oclock" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a really relaxing and non-stressful day. The interview coordinator made everything run very smoothly. The dean of the medical school spoke to us, followed by a tour of the classrooms and 6th floor of the hospital (the teaching area). Then there was more information about the process from there, as well as financial aid. Then we had lunch with some current students and after that were the actual interviews. Both interviews were really laid back, definetely took the "Tell me about yourself approach" and were not threatening." Report Response
