What impressed you positively?

"Everything! GW is definitely my dream school! What an awesome place!! The hospital is extremely new, the entire 6th floor is dedicated to student education, and you get to actually use it about a few times per week, rather than just once or twice a semester like other schools (or none at all!). The students seemed really cool and laid back, and it was great to see that they actually took advantage of all the great things that GW and DC have to offer!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The only thing would be cost, but I knew that going in, so it's no biggie. Many people are turned off by the 9-5 class schedule also." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The fact that the histo lab is all on computers." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, the interview was very well structured and an awesome experience. The day started at 9:45am with a little intro by one of the deans, then we took a tour of the GW hospital 6th floor, the auditorium, and the histopath lab. Interviews went from 12:00-2:00, but I started right at 12 and ended at 1pm. I was out of there a few minutes after 1pm. Overall, it was pretty laid back, like everyone said. Both the student interviewer and faculty were nice, and the clinician actually seemed interested in what I had to say. So don't stress, and just know ''Why GW?''" Report Response
