What are your general comments?

"I didn't know much about Loyola coming in, but I have to say I was really impressed. The students I did speak with were very happy there and the faculty interviewers were so casual and personable that they didn't feel like interviews. One of my interviews went on for an hour and a half! They really seem student-oriented there and very responsive to their concerns and interests. Some of the things they've done with restructuring patient care procedures and interaction between doctors, residents and medical students (creating formats where the interaction is less hierarchical) is really interesting. I really liked it." Report Response
