What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are clean and state-of-the-art. Everyone, from the guys I stayed with the night before the interview, to the admissions staff, the tour guide, the dean of admissions, the interviewers and even the ladies who served lunch in the cafeteria were AMAZINGLY nice. They all went out of their way to give the interviewees as much information as they could and make us feel as welcome and comfortable as possible." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The traffic in the area is not great, but as traffic in EVERY major city is generally atrocious that is not much of a negative. The weather is also less than ideal, but considering I am expecting to spend about 95% of my 4 years of medical school inside anyway, that is also not much of a negative." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There is a good deal of paperwork to fill out on the day of the interview. KNow what classes you have taken since submitting your primary and what the grades were, and also be able to break down any AP credits on your primary into math/science and non-math/science units if they aren't already shown that way. I had a rough time remembering some of that information off the top of my head. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I already knew a good bit about this school going into the interview, and everything I experienced served to verify the things I had heard. This school is very special. They are all about creating a close-knit community of impeccably trained, globaly conscious, patient centered physicians. Everyone at the school seems to be on the same page and working toward the same goals. My time at Loyola cemented in my mind that I would be amazingly happy at this school and I really hope I get a spot." Report Response
