"Faculty: Where are you from? What did I study as an undergrad and grad? What is your thesis topic? What do you see as a problem facing the US healthcare system today? We spoke a bit about the hospital because I work there, but then I basically just listened attentively while he spoke in detail about his feelings on for- vs. not-for-profit healthcare, finance, GW Hospital administrative hierarchy, and corporate history (I think this was one of his interests as a faculty and department chair)."

What are your general comments?

"considering i've been a student (undergrad/grad) at the school for some time and live in dc, i just hopped on the metro for two stops. the day started at around 9:45/10 am so it was nice to have the time to relax a bit in the morning and eat a good breakfast. sat through short presentation by admissions coordinator, dean scott, and then took a toor of the facilities and hospital. returned to the library meeting room and ate lunch with some current 1st & 2nd years. then had two ~30 minute interviews (1 student, 1 faculty), followed by a presentation by the financial aid office and student opportunities office. it was a very straight-forward and laid back day. we were out of there by 2pm."
