What impressed you positively?

"The location of the school is absolutely gorgeous. Right by the lake, in downtown Chicago, its amazing. The pre clinical curriculum is very lax. The student housing is dormish but they even have subsidized apartments that are suprisingly affordable in ultra affluent Gold Coast area." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"First thing, the price tag. The debt capping thing is nice though. But, I was a little suprised that a University like NW which I'm sure has boku endowments somewhere provides very little aid. Plus, that hospital is better than a 5 star hotel. While that looks pretty, sure, would I really be doing anything besides watching the attendings there 3rd year? Probably not." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Its pretty easy to get from the airport to the school. just take one of the trains that run from the airport to the "loop", get off at State and Lake, and take a cab, shouldnt be more than 10 bucks total :)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The location and the pre clinical curriculum are awesome. And, I actually didnt mind the panel interview, my interviewers and fellow applicants were pretty chill. However, I couldnt really get over the pricetag, and I'm a little leery of the amount of experience I could get their during my clinical years." Report Response
