What impressed you negatively?

"1) the facilities were definitely the worst that i've been 2) Georgetown hospital was sold to MedStar apparently because the med center's in hundreds of millions of debt (found this later in the news); they are still in debt after the sell 3) the med library seems underfunded (someone got trapped in the elevator; according to the librarian, that is quite common) 4) the student body was very homogeneous ethnically and in other aspects as well (surprising for a school located in D.C.) 5) first-year med school is spent competing with non-med students that comprise almost 50% of the class (SMPs as they call it); apparently it's the school's way of making money to counter how much debt it's in" Report Response
