What impressed you positively?

"Track programs, Office of Student Opportunities (availability of Global Health options and medical missions trips), no microscope work (histology is on computers!)" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The price tag. And the fact that their financial aid presentation was a whole 5 minutes." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"For the price tag of GW, I was honestly expecting more. The facilities were okay--but could have been better. We had lunch with current GW students--and they seemed to really like it. However, I got a sense that this was the only school they got into--or was a back-up. Plus, there were many BS/MD program students there who weren't very helpful with the exact questions that I had--it wasn't their fault, they just had a different application process. The students were friendly and the interview day was not stressful." Report Response
