What are your general comments?

"Georgetown's Admissions officers seemed ridiculously insecure and rude to every interviewee in the room. The person whom we met was looking at the floor the whole time he was talking to us. Mrs. Sullivan seemed quite defensive by the fact that Georgetown's ranking was low on usnews & world report both in research and primary care and that students would select many other schools over Georgetown. She seemed to have memorized a speech about cura personalis (a concept every med school I interviewed at does anyway w/o using a latin-sounding name) and vaguely defended how the school was against abortion but not entirely. The doctor who spoke to everyone during lunch time was trying to tell us that despite the fact that Georgetown University Hospital was sold to MedStar, its location in the nation's capital still attracts many students. Overall, unless you're blindly attracted to the name of this school or have no other acceptances, steer clear from this school." Report Response
