What impressed you positively?

"I was expecting to not like this visit based on what other interviewees had said about their experience. I think it really depends on who you get as your school speakers that particular day! I had heard they would stress the conservative catholic nature of the school but our guy came right out and said that the only real difference it made (besides their emphasis on caring for underserved populations) was that on your OB/GYN rotation you wouldn't be able to see abortions at THEIR hospital but that they would be happy to set you up with a rotation elsewhere where you could see one.. Hard to say if they are really that chill or if that one guy represented the far left of their admin.... The internist who runs the Hoya clinic spoke to us at lunch and she seemed really awesome! Also I love the location that has some trees and isn't right in heart of downtown like GWU" Report Response

"The really huge lecture hall with the med students sitting up on balcony following along on video screens, How young and preppy the student body seemed, only 1 floor of library has windows, anatomy lab doesn't have windows," Report Response
