"What do I do for fun?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"Most questions I had already heard before; nothing far out there." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Nothing really too difficult; I was asked "What clinical experience do you have?" and I only had some volunteer experience two years ago, so that was a little difficult." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Georgetown website; the school's mission statement and objectives; a little bit of SDN; review AMCAS and secondary application essays." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Its educational philosophy for the MD portion; the honest attitude of the staff and how they told me things about their hospital and about their MD/PhD funding that I wouldn't have gotten at other schools." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The MD/PhD structure was a little difficult to understand for me. I thought the Office of Biomedical Graduate Education is the department that oversees it because all communication goes through his office, but according to the students, its someone else. And I only had 2 PhD interviews because the third one was unable to make it due to the weather--one interviewer was very talkative and asked few questions and the other asked me some questions and told me much about the program; but I am not sure how much they learned about me." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The notorious reputation of the I-495, and the fear of 1 inch of snow, which causes widespread closings throughout the DC/Maryland area (I'm from NY where schools do not close until we have 3 feet of snow)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Its a great experience. Low key, not stressful, conversational for almost the whole day, including interviews. Information session by Mrs. Sullivan is great in putting Georgetown into perspective. (And for Mrs. Sullivan: if you haven't figured it out by now, its Suchit. My first interview review post, inspired by Georgetown)" Report Response
