What impressed you positively?

"My host was very kind." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It was very strange to have administrators (no medical degree nor any educational role in the school) interview candidates. I felt like my administrative interviewer had no idea what he was doing, had only glanced at my application, and was unnecessarily harsh about minor blemishes in my application. All of my other interviews have been at schools higher ranked than UChicago, and they have all praised my record, not denigrated it like my UChicago administrative interviewer. It seemed like they were more interested in talking to me about my numbers than actually meeting me and assessing fit (unless the "Pritzker Fit" is simply being able to justify a less than perfect record when interrogated)."

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"Make the day feel less regimented and stiff. I understand that there's a lot that goes into organizing an interview day, but many other schools have interview days with as many if not more activities planned, and they don't make the applicants feel like they're being rushed around on a tight schedule. The hurried feel of the day especially doesn't add up when one considers that we were all told to expect to stay from 9 AM to 5 PM." Report Response
