How did you prepare for the interview?

What impressed you positively?

"The campus was absolutely beautiful. The admissions staff and my interviewers were very nice and welcoming. The facilities/labs were very high tech. Food was delicious. Instead of buying books, professors sell lecture notes which apparently make it sooo much easier to study for exams and also is cheaper for students." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I didn't think this would have impressed me negatively, but honestly the group interview process didn't give me a chance to shine. I had to be respectful of the time of the others in my group so I couldn't elaborate as much as I wanted to. I also didn't like that we take classes with other health professionals. The only reason for this is the bigger class size, or else I wouldn't have a problem with it." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I felt as though I did fairly well, I just wished I had a little more practice since it was my first interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I really enjoyed everything about my interview at the campus. It's location was nice in the suburbs of Chicago (so I bet living costs are high), the campus was high tech and beautiful (especially in the fall when I went), the faculty and staff are super nice and welcoming. The tour guides that I had were also super nice and excited that we were there. They gave off a good vibe about the school and answered all the questions that needed to be answered." Report Response
