Hi there,PHD_2007 said:GW is my top choice!!!! Any info out there???? Is it tough to get into???
No, $130 is Georgetown. GW is a few bucks less. They make up for it in tuition, however.BigKurz said:You're gonna have to pay a hefty amount ($130 i believe) for your secondary. That's about all i know.
oh, and its in DC.
But they have one of the larger medical school class sizes, plus over 20,000 students at the university in total. It felt small to me too at first, but I realized that was because you only see a tiny part of the university campus during your interview day since the medical school is only on the far northwest side of the campus. The entire GW campus covers many square blocks.NotAnMD said:The school feels small, almost like a high school or tiny college.
Yes, the new hospital is very pretty, and it seems like they made a lot of effort to make it student friendly (with the CLASS center on the 6th floor).NotAnMD said:The GW hospital is probably one of the nicest facilities I saw; as you enter it looks like the embassy suites lobby.
It is a very expensive school, no doubt. It probably would be wiser for most people to attend their state school (if that's an option for them). It costs over 60,000/year between tuition and living expenses! The budget is pretty bare bones, too.NotAnMD said:Do I think they're worth the $? Not when measured against other schools, particularly those with state tuition. If you do well there you could probably get a residency in any specialty, which is true of almost all US MD programs. But they are focussed on primay care, which typically ensures less $ and doesn't warrant their hefty price tag. If you love it, can afford it, and by some miracle get accepted, GW will be great for you! Good luck, but keep an open mind.
was wondering the same thing myself.TauPathology said:Not to be rude, but how is GW your top school and yet you know close to nothing about it?
Something to think about...
They actually have pretty average stats. But I think (could be wrong) that this school gets more applications than any other in the country. I believe it was something like 11K this year.Orthodoc40 said:Rumored to be serious a number *****.
no way...but they can be as selective as they would like since they get so many apps.I think the biggest draw for many applicants is the area and the diverse student bodyOrthodoc40 said:Rumored to be serious a number *****.
