What are your general comments?

"The day started at 8:45 AM and went all the way until after 4 PM, so it was long. My first interview was with a physician at 10 AM and it was very laid back and very conversational. It ended by 10:30 and I just kind of hung out until lunch at noon. We had a tour of the hospital and classrooms by some students after lunch and it was really impressive. The students were really happy there and they seemed to enjoy being part of Pritzker. My second interview was at 3 PM with a 4th year student. It was also very conversational, but he had taken a serious look at my application and highlighted things he liked or didn't really understand. It lasted around an hour. He was very helpful and informatiove, not just about U of Chicago, but medical school admissions in general. Great place, by the end I felt honored to be interviewed there." Report Response
