What impressed you negatively?

"The tour wasn't too impressive... I feel like I saw next to nothing. The tour guide seemed bored and annoyed with questions that I asked. The student who was supposed to interview me didn't show up, so they asked one of the 2nd years to interview me. He was caught off guard and our interview ended up starting late and ran over time. My faculty interview therefore started late, and I was rushed through the questions, was asked 0 follow up questions about my answers, and got a strong impression that she did not want me to ask her any questions. I spent hundreds of dollars getting to this interview and ended up leaving with a bad taste in my mouth." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That DC can be very humid, especially when wearing wool and cashmere. Also, the interviews didn't seem to be well organized, so be prepared for anything. I let the confusion and rushed pace of my second interview get to me." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"DC is one of the coolest cities in the US. GW offers some of the best programs in global health and health policy. They interview so many people, so interviews can be rushed or unorganized. Not much in the way of facilities because of the stress on clinical medicine... not a place to come to do research." Report Response
