What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are amazing, absolutely amazing. The students seemed really down to earth and they actually seemed to have lives outside of the classrom (I went to a socceer game that the medical student I was staying with was playing in)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It is very expensive to live in Chicago, and I must confess I am not used to some of the hassels of living in a big city." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"You do a quick interview with someone on the admissions staff. No big deal but make sure you know what is on your application. Then there is a group interview. Some groups seemed to have harder times than others. I think the biggest trap here is that it is actually so laid back that you feel like you can say anything funny or quirky, but when I thought back on it there were some things I wish I hadn't said (They asked me were I would take them if they visited me at school and I said tailgating, but apparently a lot of people associate tailgating with binge drinking when I was thinking more of hotdogs and tossing the football around)."
