What are your general comments?

"It was very positive overall. There was a large number of people interviewing, which probably contributed to some of the tension (especially in the morning). The panel interview is slightly intimidating, but it really does ease some of the tension to be going through it with two other people. The interviewers are good about asking variants of questions to each applicant, so they don't ask one question and go down the line waiting for responses. The first and second year students who took us to lunch and on the tour were extremely friendly and helpful in answering our questions. And, Northwestern Memorial Hospital is amazing!"
