What do you like most?

"chill vibe amongst students. Non-mandatory attendance, P/F with NBME exams (the perfect trifecta). Matches quite well for lower tier school" | Report Response

"Collaborative student body with a great sense of community. Pass/Fail years 1&2 Attendance is not required for most things. Matches well every year, usually a bit above it's weight class." | Report Response

"Location was great, excellent academic support (good prep for USMLE), and very strong match list." | Report Response

"The environment is very welcoming, students work together to help each other. The free clinic is also right across campus and is a very rewarding place to volunteer at." | Report Response

"Community atmosphere (literally no gunners); ample research opportunity; situated in a quiet area but close enough to two great cities (Chicago and Milwaukee); no school hospital system means a wide variety of rotations all around Chicagoland (you get to see a wide spectrum of patients); fantastic professors" | Report Response

"Exams every 3 weeks for the first two years means you get a weekend off." | Report Response

What do you like least?

"Cost, weather, no central hospital so rotations are a little scattered throughout Chicagoland" | Report Response

"Clinical rotations are not at a single hospital." | Report Response

"The rotations are far away from campus, which means we have to move before our 3rd year." | Report Response

"Faculty and staff" | Report Response
