    I really hope we dont have to wait until next round. I heard they review in batches of 80 and if people from our interview days have heard back i would find it extremely odd that we wouldnt have been in that batch. But who knows....this is all very mystifying lol. There is still a chance we hear back this week as you said!

    Is it true that Georgetown does not offer merit scholarships?

    I don't think so, they spoke of a few when I was there. I'm sure there aren't many though.

    I believe that they have, although the majority of people who interview will get a waitlist or acceptance (~80%).

    hey guys I'm interviewing here next week and i'm super nervous because I love this school so much. Can anyone who has interviewed tell me how the interview is? Do we interview with 2 faculty members or 1, and how long for? What kind of questions do they ask? Any curveballs or weird experiences? What your general thoughts about the school, things you liked/disliked?

    -One interviewer, approximately 45 minutes (mine took longer)
    -It's supposed to be open book, but my interviewer didn't seem to have read my file which was fine. It made it laid back and we just chatted about every and anything starting with family, research, interesting things about me lol so basically my application, so just know what you want to bring up.
    -No curveball at all, very laid back, know things about the school and their mission.
    -Send a thank you note after

    The interview was very pleasant! As a general rundown of the interview day, you talk to students and other interviewees in the applicant lounge until ~8:45 when you go to sit on on the optional lecture. Then there are talks by the Dean, Office of Diversity, current students, etc in the morning where you get to learn more about Georgetown, the curriculum and student life. At around 11:30 you have the student-run tour and lunch (which is probably by far the best interview lunch you'll have btw), followed by your interview. The day ends by around 3PM. I liked the structure of the day since not all schools will give you so much information before you head in for your interview(s).

    I had an interview with 1 faculty member (MD) for ~45 minutes, but you can have an MD, PhD or M4 as your interviewee and all are weighted equally. It was a very non-stressful, conversational interview, probably the most positive experience I've had so far. No curveballs really, except for maybe one ethical scenario and being asked what some problems with modern healthcare are (but these are also fun questions to answer). And definitely be prepared to answer Why Georgetown.

    Personally the only thing I wish they talked about more were finances since the biggest concern I have about Georgetown (other than getting in) is being able to pay :dead::(

    Gl at your interview!

    Anyone know how the optional class visits work on interview day? The "Guide to Interview Day" says that an RSVP is requested, and specifies that the optional class visit is not available for all interview dates.

    I was never presented with an opportunity to RSVP for a class visit. Should I just assume there is no class visit for my interview date?

    They'll send out an email if there are class visits available on your interview day. If the interview day happens to fall on an exam block, however, they may not have it available and will inform you over email a few days before.

    My interview lasted over an hour. Got maybe 1-2 curveball questions that I’m not sure if I answered well :( other than that it was great! I hope I hear good news in January!

    For late sept interviewees:

    Admissions said it will be closer to 10 weeks before decisions, but definitely before Christmas. I am taking that as it will be longer than 10 weeks considering I'm coming up on 9.5.

    I bet we hear something next week. I haven’t looked at their academic calendar but I imagine “before Christmas” means before whenever their semester ends. Idk if that’s the vibe you got from your conversation though

    Top 75 people or so get invited to interview during the SMP year, and usually 30-35 people end up matriculating.

    Post-SMP, no clue

    Rejected post-interview today (9/27 ii). In shock and pretty gutted about this one as it was by far and away my top choice. Guess it wasn’t meant to be- good luck to everyone else in the running and congrats to all accepted
