What impressed you positively?

No Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interviewer spoke only about their own research, asked very little to get to know me, and really scared me with his opinion on an ethical scenario which seemed 100% antithetical to Georgetown's mission and values. The interviewer told me they had discouraged their daughter from coming to Georgetown (she ended up going to another school) and that Georgetown physicians were subpar in the treatment of the interviewer's spouse. The tour was incredibly limited and led by an M2 who had very little knowledge about years 2, 3, or 4 (she had just started M2). Only students I got a chance to speak to were the tour guides. In general, there seemed to be a pervasive arrogance about the place and an appeal to the name of Georgetown without actually backing it up with substance." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The tour has you walking all around campus and it can be very muggy and hot in D.C. This is right before your interview, so you might be sweaty or winded right when you have to interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Very disappointing interview, which I believe ultimately came down to me having a poor interviewer. Others in my group had happy, smiling, personable interviewers, whereas mine didn't seem to want to be there or care about hearing what applicants had done in their lives." Report Response
