What impressed you positively?

"The facilities were all state-of-the-art, the students seemed extremely happy to be there, and the fitness center is one of the best in the state" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The location (very isolated and somewhat distant from anywhere else in Chicago), the schedule (classes start the first week of August)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The parking structure they tell you to park in for your interview has an unmarked employee entrance, and a (more distant, and not visible) visitor entrance. If you go to the employee entrance (as I did), you won't be allowed into the structure. Also, last year they interviewed 575 people for 300 acceptances, so if you're this close, you have a good shot." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Two separate interviews, both with practicing docs in their respective offices. Both read over my essays beforehand, and had a list of questions prepared. The questions were fairly standard, though Loyola will almost assuredly ask you several ethics-based "what would you do if..." questions, as well as your opinion on the future of health care in the US."
