What impressed you positively?

"Georgetown's location and legacy seem to attract a varied, interesting group of applicants - I was very impressed by those in my interview group." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Where to begin? The day began with an awkward introduction by two of the admissions staff, followed by a ridiculously long, melodramatic rhetoric from Ms. Sullivan about how "medical school all teach the same thing, so you need to be right for Georgetown." Presumably this means cura personalis, which the tour guides insisted they didn't teach in the lectures anyway. So that leaves you with old facilities in a yellow basement, a hospital that bleeds money and a school that is clearly paranoid about their lackluster ranking. Tour guide claimed GU was her only acceptance. Don't tell people that. Interviewer was unwilling or unable to understand the nature of my research and wanted to discuss cura personalis, not the focus on international care that GU purports itself to have. I had trouble discussing an idea that I wasn't sure existed." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I'd dislike the school as much as I did." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Take the cura personalis rhetoric with a grain of salt the size of a tractor-trailer. You'd have to be asylum material to pony up the $75K/year GU claims you'd need to live and go there." Report Response
