What impressed you positively?

"THE PEOPLE! This school really treats you like a person, not just another applicant. You actually sit down and talk with the dean. This was the first interview that I've had where I've met three deans! I was able to see Anatomy Lab, every student I came in contact with was incredible friendly and encouraging. They all were enthusiastic about their love for the medical school. I also like how you are only in lecture usually until 12 or 1. This school is also emphasizes service and they have an incredible international immersion service trip that they go on every summer! I could keep going on about this school. Oh yeah..the GYM! The Locker Room is like a Country Club Spa...you have GOT to check it out. They are so interested in the well-being of the students and employees that they built this incredible Health and Fitness facility. You will also find out within a month whether or not your are accepted. Gotta love it! And of course..CHICAGO!" Report Response
