What are your general comments?

"I was really impressed by the facilities, faculty and students. Everyone was very helpful and supportive of each other. Our day started at 9am with a brief overview of the curriculum, fin aid, etc. We had three interviews scheduled with a student (AMCAS only), faculty member (AMCAS only), and admissions committee member (Full File). Each interview was supposed to be 30mins but often ran over to ~40-45mins. We had Chicago deep-dish for lunch and also had tours of the medical facilities. The interviews ran from 9:30am to ~3:00pm (start times) and, for some people, were all over the campus. The interviews themselves were very relaxed and there weren't many difficult questions. Be sure to know your AMCAS reasonably well! The Pritzker website says to plan to be out by 5pm but expect to be done much sooner (I was out closer to 3pm). Also, stay with a student host if possible." Report Response
