What impressed you positively?

"All the students expressed a great deal of pride in their school and education, staff & faculty were very welcoming & candid; It just seems to be a place where people can learn and still enjoy themselves. Rush is a great system to do clinical rotations at, and there is access to several other neighboring systems. Chicago is a great city & parking at the school is cheap ($40/month)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The labs could use a little work. Also, the removal of the alternate curriculum, which included more PBL, was a negative for me. I was under the impression, however, that the revised curriculum is still quite acceptable (97% match in their top three choices & the students do well on Steps 1 & 2)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, it was a very enjoyable experience - as enjoyable as an interview can be, that is. The staff goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable, and even prep you with some information on your interviewers." Report Response
