What are your general comments?

"Everyone was so happy and nice--the staff, professors, students, and fellow interviewees. The staff went out of their way to line up an additional student to take me out to lunch at the end of the day, since I didn't purcahse any food at lunch since I get nervous before interviews. I met the dean of admissions, who is a great guy. Everyone at Loyola seems to really want to be there. I felt the people at Loyola were all "good people," and would be a wonderful group to spend the next four years with. My interviews were amazing. I was nervous before they began, but they were both very conversational, and a lot of fun. The gym is amazing (though I don't work out!) and the medical school is very student-friendly in its layout and designI like that Loyola isn't in Chicago, but that it is still close enough to easily enjoy the big city.
