Housing and educational facilities are very modern and clean and very professional looking. Housing off campus is reasonably priced, and it's really quick to get to the school because of the main roads. Student body is really diverse. Impressive Match list." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very much impressed with Finch's residency match list, their passing rate on the boards, and how the school is making efforts for improvement.

"The overall attitude of the faculty, staff, and students. There is no hierarchy as in other schools where the administration looks down on everyone like they are Gods. Everyone is an equal at this school. The weather is also AWESOME and you do get to work with a Hispanic population which is critical for the future of medicine.

"Cook County Hospital Clerkships, the fourth year grads received pretty good residencies." More from this Member | Report Response

"The building and facilities are very nice and new.

More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities are realtively new and quite nice. We were taken to the faculty lounge for breakfast and to wait for our interviews, which was also nice and comfortable." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Seems like an average school, wasn't anything really special that they offered" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was not impressed with the surrounding area in North Chicago" More from this Member | Report Response

"The price tag." More from this Member | Report Response

"No real "wow" factor." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing at all on interview day." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities are quite outdated in areas (but this would not affect my decision to attend if accepted, and there were other areas that were brand new). I got the sense that some students are unhappy with having so many different rotation sites instead of one large home affiliated hospital (although there can be advantages to this to). They seemed to express that they missed being around their classmates everyday and that 3rd and 4th year are a lot more independent." More from this Member | Report Response

"Chicago Medical School at RFUMS has been on a probation sanctioned by LCME, and they just recently were told that they are no longer under probation but are still being closely monitored. Also, the school is an hour away from the city of Chicago, and the North Chicago/Gurnee/Waukegan area is nothing to get excited about. Not to mention, we went to a nearby restaurant and discovered that sales tax is 15 percent! There's a fairly high cost of living that I think is just not worth it." More from this Member | Report Response

"pretty much everything else. The interviewers were inappropriate, the school is on probation, their student services are lacking, and the day was disorganized." More from this Member | Report Response

"While there were ample global health opportunities, it seemed harder to get into MPH / underserved / advocacy here." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities are pretty isolated from any healthcare setting. The students did not seem all that enthusiastic about the school. The other interviewees were not a particularly friendly group." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is kind of in the middle of nowhere, and there is no large hospital/medical facility attached to it." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school doesn't appear to be very updated, the tour guides were a little strange (hopefully not representative of the school's population)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not being informed about the optional tour of the VA/Naval hospital. The financial aid presentation could have been more informative. (eg you need to ask about tuition and fees, since those figures are not provided on paper)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The surrounding area seems somewhat boring with little opportunity for community involvement or clinic based practicing." More from this Member | Report Response

"The lack of a big actual gym or a teaching hospital actually adjacent to the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"No formal presentation about the school" More from this Member | Report Response

"cold weather" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is quite isolated, and is difficult to reach from Chicago on public transportation. Its reputation for being the only choice of its students is discouraging, even if it is not deserved." More from this Member | Report Response

"Long wait time" More from this Member | Report Response

"- Tour guides: I feel the admissions staff should really work on trying to recruit more enthusiastic/passionate tour guides. - The idea that the 4th year students were much happier than the 2nd/1st year students didn't seem right - There was a fellow interviewee who was insecure, but acting arrogantly that was not helping" More from this Member | Report Response

"Location wasn't the greatest, rotations are 40 minutes away" More from this Member | Report Response

"The location isn't the greatest, but it is relatively close to the city. It certainly isn't a deal-breaker by any means. The rotation hospitals are spread out, which makes an automobile mandatory--again, not a deal-breaker though." More from this Member | Report Response

""This is the only place where I got in" attitude of students" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. I knew the area wasn't that great, but hey, you're going to be studying your butt off, and then you can do rotations at a bunch of other places." More from this Member | Report Response

"The disorganization of the day. My second interview was the last in the group and the interview said he did not have enough time to review my file. The interview was only 15 minutes because he needed to have me back by lunch. I told him I didn't mind missing lunch, but he said he had to get me back. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Kinda far from downtown Chicago, but I guess that allows you to be less distracted during first two years. Research is not a focus of this university. " More from this Member | Report Response

"super expensive" More from this Member | Report Response

"Although it is close to Chicago, the campus itself is surrounded by vast amounts of nothingness" More from this Member | Report Response

"food wasnt too great..." More from this Member | Report Response

"The location is 30 miles from Chicago (kind of in the middle of nowhere)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The gym is tiny. Itty bitty. The students seemed like they only went to the school because they didn't get any other acceptances. " More from this Member | Report Response

"buildings were old, no affiliated hospital close by, anatomy lab looked like something out of the Saw movies, students weren't enthusiastic--I heard more than one respond with "this is the only place I got in" when asked why the chose here" More from this Member | Report Response

"None." More from this Member | Report Response

"No cool places near by the school for a quick meal. Not a much to do near the campus. I didn't mind it since during the first two years you'll study a lot anyway. During the clinical years, students move down to downtown area. So, it really is ideal." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really, other than the food at the cafeteria being less than impressive. I think cafeteria food is universally bad though." More from this Member | Report Response

"The location is about an hour north of Chicago (which could be a positive, because it takes away from distractions)." More from this Member | Report Response

"The location of the school is kind of in the middle of nowhere but that is not such a bad disadvantage. It doesn't have its own teaching hospital but that gives students a wide array of choices for rotations." More from this Member | Report Response

"waiting 4 hours in the waiting room and then only get a 30 min tour" More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities were new and good, but the school itself is very small. And, this school is not affiliated with any one hospital. Most M3s move 1-hr south to Downtown Chicago for their wards, so M1/M2s hardly ever see M3/M4s." More from this Member | Report Response

"All the students I talked with I asked them why they attended CMS and not another medical school. They all told me they got waitlisted else, but got in here. For someone who has gotten in already elsewhere, this was not an answer that helped my decision on attending CMS." More from this Member | Report Response

"30 minutes solid to Chicago for the first two years" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything else about the school basically...locations, interviewers, lack of excitement from students, facilities" More from this Member | Report Response

"Location, Student tour guides seemed less than enthusiastic. One was wearing a torn t-shirt and jeans and said he was there because it was the only school he got into: ''Beggars cannot be choosers'', he said." More from this Member | Report Response

"No tour was given" More from this Member | Report Response

"not enough info about med school" More from this Member | Report Response

"nth" More from this Member | Report Response

"Seemed very research oriented, did not talk too much about the medical school. (Probably because this was interview weekend for MD/PhD and PhD applicants). Not the largest research institution. Lack of talk about financial support (got three different answers from three different students)." More from this Member | Report Response

"the day was not well organized" More from this Member | Report Response

"It seemed a little disorganized. My first interviewer got me from the waiting room before the dean came by to introduce himself so I didn't get to hear him speak or meet him. After my 2nd interview, I sat in the waiting room for another hour before they found a student to give us a tour (apparently, most of the regular tour guides were unavailable b/c we were interviewing on the day of a biochem exam)" More from this Member | Report Response

"It might not have been their fault, but we waited a long time to have lunch and the tour kinda dragged on even though it was obvious we all wanted to eat." More from this Member | Report Response

"N. Chicago is COOOLD!! It snowed about an inch during the morning and the roads were a mess." More from this Member | Report Response

"Tour guide kept mentioning that ''despite the fact that this school doesn't have a great reputation'' it's a good school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"A lot of the students I spoke with said that this was the only place they had gotten accepted to-But once they were there, they loved it." More from this Member | Report Response

"It seemed like everything was put together haphazardly. There was no structure to the tour and you didn't receive a presentaion about important details.....financial aid... housing... grading policies..." More from this Member | Report Response

"The feeling I got from the students is that nobody from IL wanted to come here over the other IL schools. I thought the students were nice, but really felt the need to prop up the school because of its shortcomings - no onsite hospital, the quarter system, and very little opportunities for research. I'm not a fan of the grading system either. I've interviewed at 4 other Chicago medical schools and this was my 5th and my least favorite." More from this Member | Report Response

" School cost. They didn't get into the different types of financial aid that are available (so all loans, I guess)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The price (~58k) per year." More from this Member | Report Response

"interviewees just kind of had to sit around waiting to be interviewed, then waited longer for the tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"school seems like a glorified board prep course. one of the students said if we get into any other med school, go there rather than rfu. makes sense to me." More from this Member | Report Response

"The location in North Chicago, there's not a whole lot going on." More from this Member | Report Response

"the 6:1 ratio for anatomy makes me a bit nervous, non-24 hour library (24 computer lab), printing cost money, facilities were mediocre" More from this Member | Report Response

"my fellow interviewees were a little stand-offish. " More from this Member | Report Response

"not affiliated with a hospital, location is very suburban- you really would have to have a car" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school was kind of disappointing. Nothing spectacular, nothing horrible but seemed really disorganized. The students didn't seem too enthusiastic either. The school lost their accredidation a while back, but have since gotten it back...a reason for concern?" More from this Member | Report Response

"the location, the lack of hospital affiliation" More from this Member | Report Response

"The medical school building is slightly drab." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lack of structure to interview day, no presentation of curriculum or financial aid. student body didn't seem as friendly or cohesive compared to other schools i have interviewed at " More from this Member | Report Response

"My first interviewer was crazy. Complete racist and never even gave me a chance to speak during the interview. Plus I found that sitting in a room with other candidates was annoying because some people were really full of themselves." More from this Member | Report Response

"size of school " More from this Member | Report Response

"no hospital affiliation - although they put a positive spin on this by saying they are affiliated with ALL Chicago hospitals, making them unique, I still consider it a negative. They constantly needed to reassure themselves by stating that any area physician would chose an RFU grad over any other area Chicago med school grad, which stuck me as odd." More from this Member | Report Response

"the town, and that theres no on site associated hospital" More from this Member | Report Response

"A lot of waiting around...just wish we would have had more a presentation by the admissions office, but this is a minor complaint considering they were very friendly and enthusiastic." More from this Member | Report Response

"my first interviewer was a little rude, location is tough, but not awful" More from this Member | Report Response

"The M4's that were supposed to interview us never showed up, so we were rushed through the second interview by faculty." More from this Member | Report Response

"Average Step 2 scores are lower than the national average because there is no primary teaching hospital." More from this Member | Report Response

"The gym. Simply awful. The lecture halls are pretty big, and the seats don't have desks. They give you this weird piece of plywood to put on your lap for a writing surface." More from this Member | Report Response

"Storied past. Does not have its own teaching hospital. Smaller university/facility and one that caters only to the health sciences professions. " More from this Member | Report Response

"School is 30 miles north of Chicago proper. Its really isolated (which is a double edged sword)." More from this Member | Report Response

"the gym" More from this Member | Report Response

"The tuition." More from this Member | Report Response

"Upon arrival, I was *very* turned off by the location, since I drove north from the school to explore that neighborhood. However, the tour guide told us about Lake Forest, a small town just south of the school, and it was beautiful--definitely a place where I could see myself going to study/shop/eat. It would have been really nice if they had a few snacks for us before the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"location... i prefer a more urban environment" More from this Member | Report Response

"didn't get to see housing, north chicago is really isolated, environment seemed more competitive than other schools, school seemed really crowded" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers' inability to question me on the important events in my application and my motivations behind choosing medicine. One interviewer flat out stated that he didn't even read my application before asking me questions. He may have done a better job if he did." More from this Member | Report Response

"distance from Chicago, lack of hospital on campus" More from this Member | Report Response

"North Chicago. The student that came in in the morning in between our interviews and preached about the competitive and almost cut-throat atmosphere" More from this Member | Report Response

"Low technology compared to other schools I have visited. Facilities are not that great." More from this Member | Report Response

"having to move into Chicago after 2 years" More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The tuition is really, really high. But I guess that's to be expected from a private institution that can't draw much revenue from patients (there aren't any, really)." More from this Member | Report Response

"lack of a hospital" More from this Member | Report Response

"the location, un-warranted uppity-uppity attitude of the faculty, lack of hospital affiliation. this place SUCKS! Guess its better than the Caribs, though..." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is in the middle of nowhere and some of the medical students didn't seem too happy to be there" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers seemed to feel that the University will never have as good a reputation as more "well known" med schools in Illinois." More from this Member | Report Response

"The location." More from this Member | Report Response

"There seemed to be a lot of disparity among the interviewers - some went consistantly for almost an hour, others went consistantly for under 25 minutes." More from this Member | Report Response

"School is in the middle of NOWHERE." More from this Member | Report Response

"The location is a bit, well, let us say "rural". One student I encountered had a bad attitude toward some of the faculty, but there are people like that everywhere as every one is different...I was more upset that she was being a drag on what was otherwise a perfect day! To each his own I suppose, but don’t rain on my parade!" More from this Member | Report Response

"How far the school is away from Chicago (about an hour and a half drive without traffic) it is actually closer to south Milwaukee, the huge presence of military bases surrounding the school, and how much traffic there was in and around Chicago." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The location, the ABC grading system, several affiliated hospitals rather than one teaching hospital" More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much. Maybe the terrible traffic in Chicago." More from this Member | Report Response

"it's far from Chicago and the train is not walking distance; also nothing to do around the school" More from this Member | Report Response

"just the length of time you sit during the morning, really nerve wracking waiting to be called for your interview.That you dont get out of there when you expect to, book your flights out of chicago late, I missed mine!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Sitting in the reception are of the admissions office for 1-1.5 hours with nine or ten other candidates; a conference room where we could all wait would have been nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"lack of meat. I saw the facilities, but I didn't really get a feel for what they are all about during the process." More from this Member | Report Response

"The lay out of the school looks like an industrial park. The appearance is not as aesthetically pleasing as other campuses." More from this Member | Report Response

"there weren't that many restaurants around the campus and the Starbucks nearest the campus supposedly closed at 8:30pm or something." More from this Member | Report Response

"i guess the distance from the heart of chicago" More from this Member | Report Response

"That the school is not attached to a hospital" More from this Member | Report Response

"not in the actual city, however the last two years are mainly in chicago. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The school has no closely affiliated hospital, average student debt is $170,000 (national average is $130,000), the school is in a very rural area (40 miles from chicago), having to sit for over an hour waiting for my interviews, the school's probationary status" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really." More from this Member | Report Response

"transportation" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything that didn't positively impress me. The atmosphere was more like high school than anything, both because of the students and because there isn't a hospital. There are many activities that go on in most medical schools that are closely linked to the hospital. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that the school is free standing" More from this Member | Report Response

"The campus is about 30-40 min away from the city. North Chicago is really spread out with long "country-looking" roads. Wished that we could somehow toured affliated hospitals. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview day ran much longer than we expected due to a cancellation of interviewers. We all had to wait a long time, but the admissions staff was apologetic and they did their best to accommodate people with earlier flights." More from this Member | Report Response

"the second guy who interviewed me, he was so persistenet with the ethical questions and basically told me to reapply" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school seemed a bit small, but so is the class size, so it probably doesn't matter too much. I also was not given a tour; however, I was interviewed late in the year." More from this Member | Report Response

"A/B/C/D/F grading system. Curriculum is en-route to integration, but is still rather disjointed and dry. Testing and studying tends to be very stressful. Interviewing session lasted from 8:30 until 3:30, mostly just waiting around in the alumni lounge. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't receive a tour around the medical school" More from this Member | Report Response

"A couple of people told us that some of the teachers were lame. The med school is small and someone made the comment that the facilities remind them of high school. I thought it was nice enough, though. (then again, I didn't interview anywhere else)." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities seemed very mediocre." More from this Member | Report Response

"Our interview day went exceptionally long because they had several inteviewers cancel. I was there until 3:45 and almost missed my plane. However, I don't think interviews usually run that late but make sure you have a late flight." More from this Member | Report Response

"CMS is one of few schools that still use an ABC letter grading systems in the nation. Also, there is no lunch or financial aid presentation." More from this Member | Report Response

"students didn't seem very enthusiastic about the school. and if i hadn't known someone who goes there, i would have only met 2 students (including my student interviewer). my tour guide was so boring, she didn't give a very good impression of the school or students. the students kind of seem like they all go there because they didn't get in anywhere else, and weren't very friendly during the tour (maybe they just didn't like our tour guide, she was so dull)."

"It's not city life up there." More from this Member | Report Response

"The campus is in the middle of nowhere and looks like some weird corporate headquarters; the students are unmotivated and more than one said that the only reason they were attending Finch was either because they didn't get in anywhere else because they sent in their applications late; cost of living is VERY expensive in spite of the fact that the school is in nowhere-ville" More from this Member | Report Response

"The shuttle to take you from lake bluff station doesn't run early in the morning or early in the afternoon. So, after taking the train from downtown chicago to lake bluff (about 1 hour), I had to call for a cab to take me the remaining 4-5 miles (no, you can't walk it unless you plan on being late).

"There is no swimming pool and it would be nice if they had 'traditional' dorms to house students. One also realistically needs a car to get around the city, public transport is not all that convinient." More from this Member | Report Response

"The attitude of the student body. Most students seemed unhappy and some expressed their discontent to matriculate there after receiving only one acceptance. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The waiting time before the interviews. Almost an hour." More from this Member | Report Response

"too peaceful and too quiet. also the students who were in the library gawked at us during the tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"the cost. the administration and faculty being incredibly cold and uncaring toward students. students seem unhappy, competitive, jaded. the fact that the 'facility' has no hospital, is really a box in a field, and yet the students pay an exhorbitant amount of money to go there. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Their average MCAT and GPA statistics." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is located in North Chicago - but the name is quite deceiving. North Chicago is a suburb of Chicago an hour away from downtown. Not really much to do around the area. The school itself is a set of two buildings - one which was only recently built. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Long wait time prior to lunch. Eat a good breakfast." More from this Member | Report Response

"Traffic on the 90/94 is TERRIBLE, ALWAYS. If you are driving, make sure to TRIPLE the estimate on Google Maps. Getting there early is not really a problem. Getting there 5 minutes late will give you unnecessary anxiety right before you go into interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"That I should have arrived earlier (the man at the information desk gave me incorrect directions)." More from this Member | Report Response

"That both interviews were partial-blind. This would have allowed me to prepare a little differently." More from this Member | Report Response

"CMS is not in chicago or anywhere near chicago, it is close to Wisconsin. If you have to travel from chicago to school, leave yourself plenty of time to catch all the trains you'll hop northbound. The "interprofessional environment" they tout is BS. it's just a med school and podiatry school sharing the same campus--no classes together or clinical stuff together with any health professions students" More from this Member | Report Response

I was first, went in for a 30 minute interview, came back into the same conference room, and then had to wait 2 hours for them to go through the whole group and then they called me a gain for my second interview.

"Great experience. Will matriculate" More from this Member | Report Response

"I'd still go here if it was the only school I got into, but my interview day moved this school from high up on my list to all the way at the bottom." More from this Member | Report Response

"Rosalind Franklin has some definite positives, but seeing the facilities and meeting students/faculty did not make me want to attend." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very conversational interview, and the interviewers were both very friendly. I only got asked one or two ethical questions, and they were pretty easy to answer." More from this Member | Report Response

"I believe you would get a good medical education here and have every opportunity to become a successful physician." More from this Member | Report Response

"The admissions staff are all extremely welcoming, the school seems really nice. I was pleasantly surprised. Don't count CMS out until you've at least visited - they are certainly looking good these days." More from this Member | Report Response

"GREAT EXPERIENCE!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"School was decent, I wouldn't mind going here" More from this Member | Report Response

"A beautiful campus with state-of-the-art labs and equipment. A friendly atmosphere and environment make this school very attractive." More from this Member | Report Response

"Loved the school, the campus, the curriculum, the facilities, the resources, the fact that you can do rotations at other schools, hospitals, or even abroad. If you interview here, GET EXCITED!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Most people seem to really do well here academically but its not a place where I could enjoy myself socially. " More from this Member | Report Response

"My personal interview was pretty laid back. I had very nice, conversational interviews. I really think this is, in part, luck and in part what an individual makes of his/her experience. This seems to be the case at any school. My interview group consisted of 15. They took about half of us first, and then half of us later so there was some waiting around. Bring something to read or get to know your fellow interviewees. There is one thing. Apparently if there is a huge disparity between your evaluation from one interviewer to the second interviewer, you may be pulled after lunch for a third interview. This is so that they can get as fair of a picture of you as they possibly can. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Just be relaxed and be yourself. The faculty are most welcoming, and will not try to rip you apart." More from this Member | Report Response

"pretty low-stress" More from this Member | Report Response

"This was my favorite interview day of all the schools I've been to. They put you in a room with all the other interviewees and you wait until you are called individually by your interviewer. There is a lot of down time between interviews where everyone sorta just hangs out. Everything about the school is really great, except the tuition. Overall it was a good experience, not stressful at all." More from this Member | Report Response

"I got to the school just ontime at 8am in the health sciences building. We sat around for about an hour and the interviews started on time at 9am. I had my first around 9:20am and my second interview at approximately 11am. The Dean came in to greet us a few minutes before lunch and he was amazingly down to earth. I felt really at home. Lunch (which was fantastic) is served at noon or a few minutes after depending on interview session. Finally, we are given a tour of the school afterwards, which takes about 45mins because it is pretty small but nice. It was a pleasant experience and relatively stress-free. I will love there" More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviews were pretty relaxed and conversational. Although quite some time was spent waiting, it passed by fairly quickly." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a long day. Took 2 hours to drive in from the southwest suburbs of chicago because traffic was crazy. There was a brief introduction and interviews started around 9:00am. There was a lot of just sitting around and waiting. I didn't get to my second interview until 2:00pm. At around 12:00 we had lunch and then a brief tour. It was a laid back day pretty much." More from this Member | Report Response

"School is simple and straight forward, the interview was very laid back and fun. Got along very well with everyone else in the waiting room." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities were very nice, and the interview experience was laid back. You do spend most of the day in a waiting room, but they did tell us that we could leave the room to use the computer room or watch tv if we liked (no one left the room). The interviews were mostly conversational, but only by two faculty members (one was supposed to be a student). Also, we were told that students would drop by to talk with us in our waiting room, but none did. I was disappointed that the only student we ever met was our tour guide - supposedly their student body is a real strength. We did get in to the anatomy lab (although directly after lunch), and the rest of the facilities were nice. Most students live nearby for the first two years, but move downtown to Chicago for their third and fourth years, to do rotations at Chicago area hospitals, which is really nice. Overall, the school seemed like a nice place, albeit definitely remote from a major city or the resources/diversions of a major city." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview starts at 9am in the waiting room of the admissions office. You sit there with all the other interviewees, waiting for a faculty member to come in to call your name and take you away. Meanwhile, you can talk amongst yourselves or to the M1/M2s that drop by to answer any questions (if you get bored easily, you may want to bring a book). Lunch is at noon, and after lunch is the tour of their facilities. Their facility is small, so the tour lasts about 30 minutes. Everyone (from the Dean all the way down to the secretary) seems to be very laid back, kind and pleasant. Overall, I was impressed with the medical school. Everyone was happy to be there, and I think I would be, too." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day started off with all of us sitting in a waiting room....where we stayed for hours. Random students stopped in to answer questions and so did the dean. My first interviewer was less than pleasant, but I thought the interview went fine. The second interviewer was nice, but one of the first things he said to me was, ''I am glad students like you weren't applying when I was applying for medical school because I never would have gotten in.'' That was sort of an odd statement and it was also discouraging. He then spent the entire interview trying to convince me to attend CMS because he kept saying ''I know you will get in to multiple schools but...'' The whole thing was a little odd. I left the interview wondering if he had any faith in the school. After the interview, we went on a tour. The tour guides both said the only reason they went to CMS was because that is the only place they had gotten in. They were saying ''We know the reputation of the school isn't so good, but...'' Before we left we were told they would inform us of their admission decision in 2 weeks...and now it is MARCH!!! The interview was in NOVEMBER!! Something is seriously wrong with that. I have gotten in to 5 schools since then and have alread chosen to go to another one. The only reason I have not withdrawn my application from CMS is because i want to see exactly how long it will take them to get back to me. I have called them multiple times only to hear, ''We are still processing applications from the fall''. What? Unless you really NEED to apply to this school, I wouldn't waste your time.

They each score you and if the difference is greater than 6 points, they will ask you for a third interview which i thought was pretty fair. The dean is really fun to talk to and all the students were really nice and happy to be there. One of my tourguides actually chose to go there over AECOM and hasn't looked back since! The opportunity to do rotations in downtown chicago is actually extremely appealing and removes the school from the semi-rural disadvantages." More from this Member | Report Response

When everybody got to the waiting room one student got called back by their interviewer before anyone from the school even welcomed us and told us what was going on. It was nice to have both interviews in the morning and get them over with. While we were waiting the dean came in and visited with everybody which was cool. After the interviews we went on a student led tour and had lunch. That was it. No presentation by someone from the school about the curriculum, grading, financial aid, clinical experience etc...nothing. They just handed us a packet of information on the school when we arrived when we arrived in the morning and that all, not even a schedule for the day. Quite underwhelming to say the least.

"Overall, not a remarkable experience. Seemed disorganized - you start off in the waiting room, then the dean comes in for personal greetings and forced small talk. During this, your interviewers come take you away. After two interviews, you sit and wait in the room...random 1st years come in to openly talk with the group. Following this, you get a tour of the facilities and then lunch...then you leave. There was no formal presentation of the curriculum, Q&A session, financial session, or anything normally found at other interviews.

The second interview, in my opinion, didn't go so well. The interviewer seemed cold and didn't really care about who I am." More from this Member | Report Response

"On the whole -- I would say a positive experience. As said before, the school is coming together and pushing a newly redesigned product. Faculty seem supportive, students are hardworking and there is an overall community feel with the other professional programs. Match lists indicate that hard work and good boards will land you a residency of choice. The location is a tough one being deep in the suburbs, but the clerkships are done at major city hospitals. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Make sure you have breakfast before you get there, and bring something to read, just in case. Once you check in, its really a waiting game for your interviewers. They will come out and take you to either their office or a room in the admissions suite. From there, depending on your interviewer, you'll either have a short or long interview. One of mine was 60+ minutes, because we had a lot to talk about, and the other was just about 35 mins (the std, they say). Afterwards, they took us for a tour around the school, which is housed in building that are linked so you don't have to venture outside during the winter, and then gave us a voucher for lunch. The cafeteria is nice, but bring some cash, b/c the voucher is only $5. I really liked the school because its students are cohesive and driven, and since its a graduate-only institution, there aren't the distractions that may be there elsewhere."

"I was pleasantly surprised by my visit to Rosalind Franklin. The school seems like a nice place, and students appear happy and do very well with their boards and residency matches. I felt that my interviewers both read my file over very carefully - they knew a LOT about me right off the bat. The interviews both seemed conversational, but at the same time, I felt they got to know more about me than any of my other interviewers at other schools. There wasn't much in terms of an information session about the school (I'm still in the dark about how the curriculum is set up) and there was a lot of downtime. However, I feel like I learned enough about the school to know that it's a place I'd be happy to attend. One thing about admissions - they really do make use of the third interview (in the case that the first two interviewers' scores are dissimilar). I think 3 people on my day actually were called for a 3rd interview. All in all, CMS seems like a great place to go to medical school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers didn't do the school any favors in my case (see the above for more detail). I left the interviews feeling that they had no organization on how to evaluate my person or application with respect to medicine. The interviews were more weird and sometimes inappropriate than stressful. Also, I came into contact with no one who could tell me about the clinical years. All the students were 1st/2nd years, who didn't know much about their next 2 years, and the interviewers had no further information about it either. I felt that this information would be extremely important because this school doesn't have its own hospital like every other school." More from this Member | Report Response

"I arrived at the site about 20 minutes early and was the second interviewee there. Getting to know the other interviewees was awesome, but always remember to NOT discuss your interviewers until you have left the venue. We were told that our interviews would be worth 20 points a piece, but we were not told how much these points weighed relative to the rest of our applications. I was the first one interviewed, which was pretty cool because I didn't have time to psych myself out beforehand, so I was pretty calm. I think it all boils down to being yourself, which sounds cliche, but it's a must. You don't need to use big words or act like you're perfect, otherwise they will see through it. Also, don't make the mistake I did if lunch is included in the interview day: I ordered a buffalo chicken sandwich, which was drippy, too spicy, and all-around nasty, so I ended up throwing it out and feared that I would offend the student tour guides. Ask the interviewers some tough questions- make THEM think, too. Although I worried about every little thing that I did that wasn't perfect, my fears were soon forgotten when I received my letter of acceptance the following week."

I suggested a solution to the numbers of uninsured and I suggested several ways to contain the avian flu epidemic. He disagreed with everything out right and continued to shoot me down for the whole hour. I stood my ground and finally asked him what HE would do. His answer did not make sense (stockpile vaccine?!). The second interview was just questions about my AMCAS application " More from this Member | Report Response

"Both of my interviews were comfortable not extremely stressful. I did not feel like I was in the "hot seat" so that was good. They really just want to get to know who you are, why you are there (why MD and why RFUMS) and whether or not you would fit in with their students. The school is close with the other health sciences that are studying there, so you share anatomy lab with the PA and podiatry students, which I found appealing. It also has a smallish, close-knit atmosphere, which has always appealed to me since I went to a smaller private undergrad. I really liked it there. In addition, they do have some impressive research opportunities if so desired. The location of the school is way out in the boonies, but I am not looking to go out partying in Chicago's nightlife, so that does not bother me on that level. I want to go to med school and learn, so the location is fine with me - BUT, try and find a restaurant, or a grocery store...maybe I was not looking in the right areas but there really isn't much in the immediate vicinity of the school."

"You start out in the office of admissions with around seven other students and wait there until one of four interviewers for the day come and call you out to join them in a sixteen square foot room that is slightly intimidating by itself. There is a lot of down time so you can go play pool or foosball next door to the admissions office in the student lounge, or just sit an wait. Then you are lead around the school for a tour.

They were both really laid back and asked no tricky questions.

"All 15 applicants sat in a waiting room while the interviewers would come and get us individually for the interview. Both my interviewers were very nice, but also quite challenging. They asked me the big 3 questions, but also had some very specific questions about my profile as well as some unique questions, indicated below. The interviewers, the Dean of the school, and the students were all very honest about the negative aspects of Chicago Medical School. One being that they do not have a affiliated teaching hospital, exclusive to CMS. The medical students actually do rotations in many of the hospitals in Chicago but there is not a hospital exclusive to CMS. After the interviews, the Dean had a conversation with all of us regarding the accreditation status of the school; again, he anwered questions straight forward. Two first year students gave us the tour, and ate lunch with us. They seemed to be quite content with the school, especially with Chicago accessible(the school is about 40 minutes north of the city center).

I had many interesting convos w/ the other interviewees. I wish them all luck.

There were about 12 of us, and we sat in the admissions office waiting for our 2 interviews. it's a doubleheader! My first interview by the admissions director was a "tell me about yourself" type interview -- which I believe was my most "complete" interview thus far. My second interview was with an Int Med prof and surprisingly he asked me technical questions (please read below). No hard feelings though. :) Most of us were done with interviews by 11:30am-12pm. Tour was given by a goofy 2nd year -- kept the tour very interesting. School is pretty big once you start walking around. Medical students are really busy studying but overall like the school. the first 2 years in North Chicago are really geared for traditional learning and high board scores.

"A group of 12 candidates met in the Admissions office. They started on time ( 9:30). There was good strong coffee, juice, and muffins in the office ( these were welcomed as there was no lunch served). There was a brief orientation by an Admissions Specialist. A packet was handed to each of us which had a brochure, an interviewer evaluation form, and two candidate review sheets for our interviewers ; we were told to put our name and date on these before giving them to the interviewers. At the top of the sheet are instructions telling the reviewer to keep the candidate's recommendations, activities, and experience in mind when ranking ( these sheets will give you an idea of how we would be evaluated so be sure to look at them- three categories are rated: poise, problem solving ability, and other; all three are ranked 1 - 5). These three categories will be added up and totaled at the bottom of the sheet. The first interviewer was an M4 who used my supplemental application and accompanying essay. She was very nice and pretty laid back. The interviewer was very engaging and informal the whole time; she was also helpful with my list of questions. Between interviews, the Admissions Specialist held many question and answer sessions for the candidates that were waiting in the office. The second interviewer was an MD that taught at CMS. He was kind and thorough. This interviewer covered most of my AMCAS thoughtfully; he clearly had read the document. He also posed additional questions about my personal life, motives, and future plans. A brief tour came next which included the new Rosalind Franklin Biochemical dept, anatomy lab, realistic practice clinical rooms, workout room, cafeteria/ student union, and the twin-pod/ auditorium area. Half of the facilities are only 2 years old. There are also brand new dormitories near the school which we did not tour. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Good, low stress interview. Some of the questions seemed canned (like--"if you like to work with people, why not be a social worker?). Overall it was a good experience. I was a little scared when I first showed up (as were the other interviewees), but as the day went on, the place started to grow on me (and I think the others as well)."

"One interviewer was friendly and personable while the other was non-expressive...she just stared at me and fired questions at me. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I learned a lot about Finch on my interview day and I left the day much more excited about the possibility of attending that school. Also, check out their website to learn about their recent name change!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very relaxing experience. Both the student and the faculty members were nice, but they didn't let you know when your interviews were scheduled. Some students had to wait in the office over 2 1/2 hours until both interviews were done" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was very stress free. I liked the school more and more as the day went by. They have a low passing rate for the USMLE's, however my tour guide explained that it was due mostly to the local kids who attended. Only about one kid from the states per year didn't pass.

"Ten of us were interviewed that morning. I was interviewed by one professor and one four-year student. Both were very nice. They did not give me any hard questions. The professor asked many questions that were related to my experiences. The student only asked about three to four questions. The interview ended before noon."

"school was really in nowheresville, IL. one of the interviewers was clearly uninitiated to the world of modern medicine--was confused when i talked about basic transcriptional regulation experiments. he wasn't a prof, though." More from this Member | Report Response

"all in all it was chill. student interviewer was super chill and faculty interviewer did not try to initimidate me but simply asked easy questions" More from this Member | Report Response

"the people here are very nice and fully fund md/phd students. its an average 6 year program expidited...i love the staff here and interviews were greatq " More from this Member | Report Response

"I left impressed and seriously considering the school" More from this Member | Report Response

"i can't say enough about how friendly and welcoming the interviewers were. the whole day is really laid back, although a little boring. the area is also pretty suburban, it's in north chicago, not chicago." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview was broken up into two parts. The first half was with the director of the library and it was in spanish only. The second half was with the first semester physiology professor and it was in english. I felt lost between interviewers because I was not told where to go next, so I just went back to the administration building for directions. Overall, I did not feel like the school would give me the best opportunity to fulfill my dreams of being a complete doctor." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview experience overall was very pleasant. The stay-over program helped a lot with costs and seeing the lives of students, the interviewers were very friendly and laid back, the tour was informative." More from this Member | Report Response

"Had lotsa fun even though I was stressed and interviewers seemed to keep their eyes out on us all the time. They gave feedback on how they view my application and interview (mostly positive). The Director of Admissions and Dean of Student Affairs were all very cool. Visiting Chicago for the first time was awesome. " More from this Member | Report Response

"This is the first time I've thought to myself after an interview: "Even if this is the ONLY place I got accepted, I would NOT go to school here." Honestly." More from this Member | Report Response

"Like I said, the staff and the interviewers were extremely nice and enthusiastic about the school. The school itself is almost completely new or renovated. Great facilities - a dozen or so simulation rooms have just been added. The campus, however, is rather isolated and there isn't much near there. You need a car. The student tour didn't impress me much. The student didn't seem particularly happy to be there, although she told me that was the case no matter what med school you went to. I didn't get that impression from students at other med schools. She also pointed out that most people hadn't chose to come to chicago med but rather this was the only school they had gotten into. On the up side, you can move into the city your 3rd and 4th year for your rotations. Overall, the school/facilities/professors are fine - just wish it was closer to the city. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The experience was great! the faculty and students seem very nice and the school has some great facilities! I definetly want to go to FUHS/CMS after this experience and hope to complete my MD there :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview began very late and required us to spend some time waiting in the admissions office. One of my interviewers kept trying to suggest I apply to the Caribbean as a back-up plan, which I didn't appreciate. The other interviewer talked about 95% of the time. The student tour guide was an unfriendly, boring, prude and didn't really enjoy being at the school. Finch has a ways to go in the marketing of their school if they want to improve their situation. " More from this Member | Report Response

"*I stayed with a great student host who gave me a great tour of the brand spanking new student housing units. The rent was a bit high, but the places were spacious and they were right across the parking lot from the school. *I didn't feel very positive about the interviews, but the day itself went well. *About the interviews: Two were conducted in a manner that made me feel quite comfortable. The 3rd interviewer basically spent the whole time critiquing my academic record in a way that made me feel defensive and made me wonder why they even invited me for an interview. I expect to be asked about my grades and MCAT, but not in a such a harsh manner... *I got the impression that most students attend the school b/c it's the only choice that they have. *Finch has great opportunities to volunteer, job shadow, and do clinicals in diverse environments." More from this Member | Report Response

"there were only 7 interviewees present. the morning was spent doing interviews. there were only a few interviewers so we all had to wait our turn (I was not use to this) but it went by fast. the interviews were relaxing, and more conversational than all other interviews I had had. they really want to make you feel confortable and really want to get to know you. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall very positive; the interview was relaxed and more like a discussion. Make sure to rent a car if you fly in; its a lot cheaper as well as convenient, and take some time to visit downtown Chicago - it's beautiful!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Depending on your affinity for location and environment, Finch may be a plus or minus. The surrounding area is quiet and calm." More from this Member | Report Response

"both my interviewers were tough - they seemed disinterested and sarcastic, but don't get frustrated or intimidated. just keep smiling and be yourself." More from this Member | Report Response

"Finch/CMS seems like a great place-- students appear happy, facilities are brand new, and not too far from the city. The actual interview: on my day, there were 8 of us (interviewees). We sat around until 10-10:30AM or so before interviews actually began. Day was over by 12:30-1:15PM, depending on when your interviews started. Very casual, low stress. " More from this Member | Report Response

"overall positive experience - the waiting time before the interview was a bit long." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviewers were very amiable and facilities are very modern." More from this Member | Report Response

"The first interview was with the director of admissions, and besides making you feel relaxed, she's got a good sense of humor. The second interview was only 15-20 min. long with a professor, and that was pretty relaxing as well." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall a positive experience and I left with a better opinion of the school than I arrived with. The facilities are very nice and new, but too bad they don't have a hospital attached to the school. On the other hand, the last 2 years you move into the city of Chicago and the clinical experience is great. Despite the reputation I had heard about students not being very happy, the 2 I met seemed really to like the school and boasted about the school's high board scores. A good tip is to rent a car because it ends up being cheaper than the cab rides from the airport." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall a good one. I wish that there had been a more formal presentation regarding the curriculum and student organizations/activities." More from this Member | Report Response

"I love Finch and think its a wonderful school, definitely on the rise. The clinical experiences are unparalleled and there is no hidden agenda for primary care quotas. They want their students to do well and gain competitive residencies. Many of the professors help USMLE review books and this shows in their teaching. It is a primarily for teaching, not research." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was favorably impressed overall. Again, I got a good feeling about the people, the school, and the city. I would recommend just being relaxed and try to turn the interview into more of a conversation - this will make you less tense. Make sure you ask them questions, as well. Contact me at [email protected] if you want to ask me anything or just talk about the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers were very friendly and it was more of a conversation than a question-answer environment." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers really tried to make the experience very relaxing and comfortable. My tour guide seemed genuinely happy about being there. CMS isn't as bad as some people have made it out to be. Although the location isn't ideal, students get to move into the city during 3rd year for clerkship. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Wasn't too impressed" More from this Member | Report Response

"Good preparation for future interviews. Couldn't have been much worse. Though I was very prepared the environment was not conducive to a good interview. Too many people...too little time. Should have screened the applications better and narrowed it down a lot more for the benefit of all involved." More from this Member | Report Response

"This was my first interview, so I didn't know what to expect. Fortunately, everyone was really nice, especially my student interviewer." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything was very laid back and they did their best to keep me relaxed." More from this Member | Report Response

"easier than filling out any AMCAS form thats for sure " More from this Member | Report Response

"I had an interesting occurance. My first interviewer turned out to know a good friend of my family, and we found out that we attended the same wedding 2 years ago! My other interviewer engaged me in a conversation about Israeli politics. I liked that I was able to get out of there by noon, the down time was minimal. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Im current a student at Finch University in the one-year Applied Physiology Masters Program. During this year Ive been taking med school courses and at the end of the year the students are evaluated based primarily on their grades at Finch. We had interviews, which were more of a formality. Overall - I suggest this program - for students who are struggling with med school admissions. Its NOT cheap, but its definitely do-able. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Very easy interview overall. As you can see, my interview was the last day of May, and the class was already full. Why did they even invite me? The interview was very ladi back though and was not stressful at all, just know your AMCAS well and be prepared to expand on whats on it. No difficult questions were asked me." More from this Member | Report Response

"I thought the actual interviews were very standard with one exception that of which was very open-ended. The place seemed very factory-like in the sense that they just churned out doctors with very little concern for them. One thing that the school did seem to be concerned about is finances (high tuition, partnership with Dr. Scholls podiatry school)." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview at Finch is EXTREMELY laid back. the interviewers all seemed really friendly and just wanted to get to know you as a person. The school is really nice!" More from this Member | Report Response

"A pretty standard experience. One student, one faculty interview, a continental breakfast while waiting for the interviewers, and a tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"Better/more communication with interviewees pre- and post-interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"To give us an applicant portal so we can check our status" More from this Member | Report Response

"They're doing a great job, especially considering the huge volume of apps they have to go through. Everyone was great - from responding to emails pre-interview, to how smoothly interview day went, to just being welcoming and frank about everything throughout." More from this Member | Report Response

"Keep building up the reputation of Rosalind Franklin! Doing a great job." More from this Member | Report Response

"Make the season end earlier and finish IIs earlier. While I'm honored to have been extended an interview and enjoyed that day thoroughly, I'm now sort of stuck, unsure whether I will need to apply again while the AMCAS/AACOMAS are already underway, and am unsure whether to start working on my backup plans should reapplying not work out. It's frustrating to have the next year+ of my life hanging in the balance much later than other schools." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day was unorganized, we spent so much time trying to get everyone interviewed and there was no food. Every other morning interview I have gone to has offered some snacks. And after three hours of waiting to finally be done with my interviews, I was shaking for food. Because it took so long to be done with the interviews, we got a shortened version of the tour and I had to stop eating before I was done. My second interviewer was plain nasty. She had be at the point of tears for no good reason except to berate me. I know for a fact I am not the only one she has done that too. I felt overall that the interviewers made their opinions too well known, which I think is inappropriate in an interview when concerning topics so polarizing. Other schools have provided avenues for dealing with inappropriate interviewers, but CMS made no mention of what to do in that case, so I kept quiet. I really liked the prospect of going to school close to home and close to Chicago, but frankly, the interview day completely changed my mind." More from this Member | Report Response
