What impressed you positively?

"P/F system is truly P/F; there are no rankings for the 1st two yrs. Impressive match list." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"My first interview was with a physician and he asked if I had a CV to give him. I didn't, of course, and although the interview was supposed to be open file, he hadn't received my materials. After a few general questions, his beeper went off and the interview was over. Not too good." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"My student interviewer stated clearly that for those of us looking into family practice or peds, Pritzker is not the place for that. You'll get a better education at much less cost elsewhere (e.g. state school) for that." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My physician interview was really bad b/c he was too busy for me so I couldn't really express myself too much. That lasted only 25 min. However, the student interview was great; for over an hour and a half we just talked casually on a bench outside." Report Response
