What impressed you positively?

"The location of the school is great, they have a really nice view of the lake. The hospitals look brand new and amazing and even their cafeteria looks nice. They say that this is one of the few hospitals not in debt, even though it serves a lot of disadvantaged people. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Currently, they have their lectures in the Kellogg School of Business. The building is right next door, but still, a medical school should have their own lecture rooms. They say that new ones are being built for 2004, but I didn't get to see it. The students seem laid back and not very hardcore. One student did mention that out of the 170 or so students in the class, 50 come from the Northwestern BA/MD program. They stick together and are "young," though the way she said it made them sound immature. She also mentioned that there is a MD/PhD crowd, a MD/MPH crowd... etc. " Report Response

"The walk from the subway to the school is FAR... and the entrance on Chicago Avenue is not very obvious. " Report Response
