Report Response | I was asked this question too

What impressed you negatively?

"i spent four years in chicago for college. the cost of living around NU med is astrononical. i'll prolly end up share a place w/ a friend south loop to save a bit cash. what negatively impressed me was that there wasn't any info given about their finaid on the interview day. i found their info on their website. i wasn't too impressed." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"how much their students love the school. i think that'll be a decision factor for me cuz i just want to be happy for the next four years. i've heard negative things about their pbl curriculum but it doesn't seem to bother them." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"i wasn't too sure about the panel interview until i walked in the interview rm. it was a great/relaxing experience for me. they start the session by asking you to introduce yourself. try to introduce the most confident/impressive/easiest to explain part of your life. it'll help you direct the interview conversation. all three interviewers asked me practically the same simple question which derived from my introduction. i really had an easy time. one guy in my group, i felt, kind cornered himself with his introduction. i hope he got in cuz he must've had an impressive resume. the girl in my group started out with her research, which i would be feel difficult to elaborate into too much detail. i think the details loose people's interest after a while, but this girl was so impresive with her ability to captivate audience. even i was riveted. NU was my sixth or seventh interview. i have had the chance to compare quite a few schools and was fairly comfortable at the interviews. NU facility was still one of the most impressive among them all. i liked the school philosophy, the students seem fun. my interview group was very impressive which will make my classmates a fantastic bunch to hangout with. im not too sure about the large class size, and im a bit reluctant to graduate with $250K debt which seem to be the result of their finaid system."
