What impressed you positively?

"The building and facilities are very nice and new. Finch is a little far from the city of Chicago, but the surrounding suburbs are beautiful- nice houses, little shops, etc. Also, despite what I've heard, the 2 students I met seemed very happy with the school." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Not very much student interaction on interview day and no hospital directly affiliated with the school. Also, too many people were interviewing on the same day (I think I counted 30!). I waited almost 2 hours before my 1st interview and then another 45 minutes in between interviews." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I had known about all the waiting around." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"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." Report Response
