What are your general comments?

"i didnt know much about UIC coming into the interview, and was quite impressed by the school. the information presentation was ok, but the tour was good--given by M4's--which included a question/answer/advice period. my interview was with an M2 and an admissions officer (not an MD or PhD), but others had an MD or PhD plus a med student. the whole day was pretty relaxed and quite informal. ask a lot of questions..."
