What impressed you positively?

"I really liked Mrs. Sullivan- it was refreshing to hear a direct, blunt assessment of both the positives and negatives of the med school application process and of Georgetown as a school. They've done a good job of branding themselves based on their philosophy and what they are known for." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I felt that for a great school with a stated humanistic philosophy, they could have structured the interview day much more appealingly. We sat for much of the day in a really cold, impersonal glassed in space by ourselves, with long gaps of time between presentations. Our tour was rushed, with one first-year student who couldn't answer many of our questions and didn't stay for lunch. There were no other opportunities to speak to students, which is when you really learn more about a school." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That their hospital is very small and serves a not very diverse population." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Aside from Mrs. Sullivan, I was really disappointed by how the interview day was structured. For a great school, they could have made the day much more welcoming, but maybe it's part of a love it-or-hate it strategy, since they do a good job of making it clear that they have a specific identity and they only want students who understand and match it exactly. But I think providing more opportunities to speak with students and not keeping interviewees isolated for most of the day would help package the things that they do have going for them."
