"There are apparently three questions the interviewee will be asked to answer: Why Georgetown, Why medicine, and What's going on with HC Reform. The rest is verification of your file." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Nothing." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Everything. If I had known what I know now, I wouldn't have wasted my day there. The curriculum has a bad track record - it seems to be continually evolving due to student complaints. The facilities are awful. Just see for yourself. The admissions staff are the rudest I've come across yet. Georgetown is too focused on emphasizing that it selects a very particular kind of student for its class, and after meeting some of the students, I seriously question the criteria. Georgetown continually ranks poorly as a medical school, and the reasons become apparent on the interview day. Also, I asked the students if the teaching faculty was good, and they unanimously told me that they were disappointed with their lecturers." Report Response
