What are your general comments?

"I was late because the Georgetown shuttle was running way behind, and I ended up taking a cab which took a long time to arrive and was more expensive than I'd expected. The fishbowl wasn't as weird as SDN makes it sound and the presentations before lunch were great. The school obviously has greater dedication to explicit clinical education than most other schools, but I'm not sure that all the hand-holding through your clinical learning is necessary. I wasn't impressed by the students particularly: they seemed nice but not really that excited to be there. Also there's very limited interaction with students during the day. The facilities were very nice. It sounded like it was fairly easy to find housing in the area but that it is a pain not to have a car and a pain to pay for one in the city, and overall really expensive to live in Georgetown. I was very thrown off by having my first closed-file interview, since I spent most of the interview telling basic information about me instead of sharing more in-depth interpretations of what those experiences meant."
