What are your general comments?

"I came in with a positive attitude toward Georgetown, but my opinion changed. The overall attitude of the students that I observed there are very egocentric type A, conceited, and condescending. I'm sure there are those who truly believe in the healing power of medicine rather than to boost their ego. Even though they said there is a sense of camaraderies, I really did not sense it. The overall atmosphere is very cold. That changed my opinion completely. (Even though I had a great interview) :)" Report Response
