What are your general comments?

"The interview experience was great. I was able to make a great connection with my interviewers and felt wonderful leaving. Dean Norstrom (Admissions Director) was nice enough to meet with myself and the other interviewees and answer our questions. I can't say enough about the atmosphere at the school, students seem genuinely happy and cohesive. The mission of Loyola as a Jesuit institution definitely lends itself more to a clinical physician than a researcher. If you are planning on being a clinician, this is your place. I'll be here next fall as I got my letter of acceptance last week. The turn around time of 11 days between interview and decision is wonderful... And one more thing, a question/request to the person who gave the ONE NEGATIVE response to Loyola Stritch's interview day: why don't you give some reasons? One lone negative response begs a little more than some numbers and a not-so-smiley-face. What went wrong?" Report Response
