What impressed you negatively?

"we only met 2 students (we were told this is becuase all of their students are busy and it is hard to schedule them to come meet us--but really if i can meet students at every other school i have visited, why are georgetown students more busy/important to meet with me?). the talks we were given in the morning were very rushed. as a consequence, we had little time to ask questions of anyone." Report Response

"we would have no interaction with students during the scheudled interview day/time. but you can meet up with students later or on another day to get more info." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, i didn't like georgetown. the impressions of the school were very mixed that day (from the lack of interaction with students to the poor planning of time by the admissions committee). also, they stressed in the morning how much they value feedback from the students on cirriculum, student life, grading, testing, etc. but at the end of the day i asked them if they had a feedback form to interviewees to fill out and they said no and looked at me like i was crazy. i know i am not a student, but in all the visits i have had with med schools this was the only one that didn't ask for my feedback and was the one school that needed it the most. Also, our lack of interaction with students and faculty at the school sends the message that they don't enjoy life at georgetown enough to want to sell the school to perspective students. that makes me want to get my medical education at an institution that people are excited about--not georgetown."
