"Georgetown's campus is nice, and in a good neighborhood, albeit far from metro access which can make navigating the city a bit of a pain (have to take a Georgetown bus to get anywhere). There's also the prestige of the "Georgetown" name, along with abundant research opportunities, and being in DC, opportunities to get your hands dirty with policy. There does appear to be a strong emphasis on clinical skills and preparing for a positive residency experience. According to the admissions office, the school emphasizes service to the underserved. Ms. Sullivan's speech about selecting a medical school was excellent. Also, there are some unique curricular opportunities (mind-body-medicine, health justice scholars track, etc.)" More from this Member | Report Response

"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!

"The other interviewees, the area, the guide." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really don't know where to start with this question. First off, the campus was the most beautiful campus I think I've ever seen. The architecture and brick buildings were magnificent and the vegetation surrounding campus was lush and abundant. Each corner I turned as I walked through campus made me want to take out my camera and snap away. And the neighborhoods surrounding campus were very quaint and charming. The two tour guides were extremely upbeat and informative. Their positive attitudes really made me feel like I would welcomed there. I really liked the 'feel' of the medical school facilities. I always have to picture myself in a place (considering it would be a 4 year commitment) and I could definitely see myself spending time there day in and day out, walking down those hallways, and sitting in those classrooms. The library was very impressive. Many courses will be available on audio and video starting next year (fabulous!), the classrooms looked really well-equipped and technologically up-to-date. People around campus were really friendly. Personally, the cura personalis philosophy captures what I've always thought a medical school curriculum should offer. I was hoping that this wasn't a fleeting statement that doesn't really stick when you delve into the medical school course load. But our tour guide, who I really felt was trying to give us an uncensored picture of the school, said that it has always been a constant throughout her time there (she was a 2nd year) and I learned that courses based on morally, ethically, and culturally delicate issues of the profession are a continuous part of the education here. I felt really encouraged by Mrs. Sullivan's talk. What I got out of it was a much different story than what I've read from some other posters on here. Of course she was trying to help everyone come to terms with whether we truly wanted to go to GUMS-- or just get into 'a' medical school, but I also think she came from a genuine place and was trying to help us understand that whether we received an acceptance was OUR choice to make. Loved the idea of working in the Hoya clinic, NIH, WHO, getting involved in health care reform on capitol hill, a gazillion different affiliated hospitals and facilities, doing international electives, and many many other opportunities you can't really beat.

I wish this had been my first interview because she made some really good points about questions to ask at interviews and ways to evaluate schools. I found her to be very informative...she also memorized each interviewee's name, school, and various other info...this makes a nice impression.

Very articulate, and she's very clear...if you interview at a school and don't get in, you were not able to adequately convey why you are a perfect fit for their school. At least for me, that comment was empowering. In the one hour introduction to Georgetown med, Mrs. Sullivan makes you want to be a part of the Georgetown tradition of community outreach and patient advocacy. Dr. O'Toole is also great. Very friendly, very funny, and you can sense his sincere desire to help the underserved and make changes for the better in medicine.

The school also has very unique programs-namely alternative medicine, ethics, and religion in medicine classes. The people here are fantastic-down to earth, relaxed and happy.

They also gave us their emails to address future questions. Altough the tour was pretty disorganized, I had a good time and I felt like the relaxed atmosphere of the tour suited me. I was amazed that Georgeen and Mrs. Sullivan knew my name especially coming from a large university where no one seems to care what anyone's name is. The speakers during the day were honest and up front about the school and curriculum. I could not have been more impressed. I really loved this school." More from this Member | Report Response

The intro to the school--Mrs. Sullivan made such an honest and strong statement about what Georgetown is all about, the facilities, the surrounding area, the students, my interviewer--probably the nicest man I've ever met, besides that he's got an MD, law degree, multiple PhD's, he's a Priest, and he used to be a military officer" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school's willingness to acknowledge other forms of medicine (i.e. accupuncture, they point out the meridians during anatomy lab) Also, the non-religious approach of students and faculty. Even though it is a Catholic school, it only shows itself very subtley, in a positive way. There are the "very religious" if you are into that kinda thing, but it is very easily avoidable and ignorable." More from this Member | Report Response

Great opportunities for everything from community service to spending time abroad! " More from this Member | Report Response

"Ms. Sullivan is awesome and Georgina talked to me in Spanish knowing that I was fluent. They all know you when you come in. My interview was supposed to be closed-file, but my interviewer read my file before coming to get me, which was good. It was supposed to last 30-40 minutes. Mine lasted an hour and 20 minutes. I just really clicked with my interviewer. The school's philospohy is great- they want to make sure you really want to go there. They basically told us what we had to say to get accepted.

"The school is in constant flux. True, the facilities are not state of the art, but rennovations are completely underway for many of the facilities, such as the interactive learning center. The curriculum is not static, in that, it is constantly evolving and improving. Mrs.Sullivans speech will definately give you the best picture as to if GU-SOM is or is not meant for you. The students seemed genuinely happy about their decision. THe city of DC is spectacular. There is so much to do. Overall, I loved this place and it is definitely my #1 school of choice."

"Ms. Sullivan, who spoke in the morning, is an amazing woman. Of all the people I have personally met in my life, she is one of the most memorable speakers who exudes amazing character and a genuine concern about others (including the interviewees!). If one were blind or deaf to her wisdom and intelligence, it would be a shame. Pay attention and remember what she has to say, for it applies to most areas of life and one would probably have a richer life if they are aware of such things. Reggie G."

"I really have no idea why everyone is so scared/intimidated by Mrs. Sullivan's talk. She tells you straight up what Georgetown is about (it is unique), its Cura Personalis philosophy, and goes on to say that it is not the best choice for everyone. She's honest and simply tells it as it is. She even offers a set of wonderful guidelines that can be used to select the best medical school for us. I don't understand what everyone's problem is with her; I guess no one likes her for actually caring about helping us find the school that fits us the best. After reading everyone's reviews about the facilities, i was expecting a garbage dump. However, what i found was decently nice facilities, with many improvements in the works. This is a school rich with tradition and will teach you how to become an all around healer, not just a master of the basic sciences. Listen to Mrs. Sullivan carefully: if you like what you hear, G'Town might be the place for you. If you do not, don't just bash the school: just say it wasn't for you and move on with your life."

"The speeches in the beginning were too aggressive for me - I began to question why this school had to sell itself so much" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer spoke only about their own research, asked very little to get to know me, and really scared me with his opinion on an ethical scenario which seemed 100% antithetical to Georgetown's mission and values. The interviewer told me they had discouraged their daughter from coming to Georgetown (she ended up going to another school) and that Georgetown physicians were subpar in the treatment of the interviewer's spouse. The tour was incredibly limited and led by an M2 who had very little knowledge about years 2, 3, or 4 (she had just started M2). Only students I got a chance to speak to were the tour guides. In general, there seemed to be a pervasive arrogance about the place and an appeal to the name of Georgetown without actually backing it up with substance." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish we would have been allowed into the hospital to get a peek. The tour overall could have been much more in-depth, although they do make a point of providing you will information for a self-guided tour at the end of the interview day for those of you who do not have a strict travel time.

"Cost (and corresponding lack of available scholarship monies), slightly outdated facilities (not a big deal), the sample lecture was quite boring. Despite Ms. Sullivan's speech about Georgetown's institutional "cura personalis" values, I'm not sure the rest of the faculty and students gave me the same impression; I did not feel that the student experiences there are radically different from anywhere else, but at least I did like what Ms. Sullivan had to say about the school's mission and approach to medicine."

"Still not sure if I want to go to a Jesuit school" More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer. He was an M4 and it may have been his first time as an interviewer: he was obviously very nervous and scrambling to find questions most of the time. I also felt rushed out the door after the interview concluded by a member of the admissions office, who may or may not have been having a bad day." More from this Member | Report Response

"Students who came to talk to us in the conferance room about how much they spend on drinking and how much they get drunk after tests. Admissions office, although these are only several students this does NOT leave a good impression on the school. I know it left a bad taste in my mouth. I'd suggest reminding students to tone this type of talk down or screening those who talk to applicants." More from this Member | Report Response

"The staff seemed anemic and unhappy to be there. We were in the same room for hours too. I also don't like the location of Georgetown too much, as there is no subway to get to the more lively parts of the city." More from this Member | Report Response

"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." More from this Member | Report Response

"They have done some recent changes to their curriculum so there might be some kinks to be worked out. Also, even though the interviews are "open-file," my interviewer had not looked at mine before the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"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." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviewer never read my file before interviewing me." More from this Member | Report Response

"-The facilities weren't nice at all (bummer) -The students who gave the tour (seemed a little too immature to be grad students) -The staff (unfriendly) -The fact that the med school meshes with the undergrad facilities/students. It doesn't create an environment that makes you feel like you're in grad school. -The delivery of curriculum has been changing left and right due to student complaints. Not a strong track record in that area. " More from this Member | Report Response
