What impressed you negatively?

"Where should I start..... Facilities were dreadful. The interview schedule guy... he acted like he was on drugs and screamed at one point while looking at the floor while talking. The woman... Sullivan... she seemed more interested in bashing other schools than on talking about Georgetown... her talk was easily the longest 2 hours of my life... after her talk I could have cared less to even stay around. I was very disappointed in Georgetown, I guess I need to realize that they are known for basketball and law... not for medicine. The tour didn't even include the hospital, kind of odd considering med students spend over two years there... instead we got to see some hotel/banquet center. The tour guides were awful and quite honestly some of the most unintelligent people I have ever met. They made some big deal about having A computer in their anatomy laboratory.... wow! A whole computer for the class? Honestly, I would throw everything away that I have done up to this point in my life than to attend Georgetown." Report Response

"Save your money and go to a different school. They are too concerned with their 'ranking' in US news... and if you ask me.. they are ranked too high as it is. Sullivan says they should easily be towards the top... I call her bluff. Please save your money and go somewhere better." Report Response
