A little over 3 weeks, but that was a few months ago. I don't know if they're backlogged now.

Did you hear that Ashcroft the attorney general is at GW with pancreatitis? I wonder if any med students are working on him? Ha ha ha ;)

They let me know like a cool 10 weeks later. I interviewed mid February and got my acceptance last week. Thankfully it was an acceptance but that doesn't make the wait any easier. Good luck to all of you.

Hey, everyone. Hope things work out for you all and GW. I am totally psyched about coming there for medical school. For any of you, was it your first choice?
Talk to you all later!

The big downside in my mind is just simply cost...while D.C. would rock, I can't figure out if it'd be worth an extra $100,000 in debt versus your state school.

I also got into a state school (I'm a Virginia resident, basically lived right over a bridge from GW). Yes, one would save a lot of money going in-state but come residency time I think that it would be well worth the financial debt to state that you are a GW grad. In many ways you are definitely paying for that cache and name/reputation. Still, that'll give you an edge. I always reconcile the financial doom in my mind by thinking about living in the awesome urban environment and the fact that anyone who is anyone in D.C. comes to GW for medical treatment. Plus, you spend all that time studying and pulling out your hair with classes to get the best. Maybe its my bias but I really think that GW is one of the best med. schools out there.
