What are your general comments?

" Had problems finding parking. If you don't know Chicago well, have a decent map before you go for your interview or take the train in. Once I got there, I was ushered into a reception area where a 2nd year med school talked to the eight of us who were interviewing that day. During that time we were individually taken out to be interviewed by a panel of three or four people. The interview was very laid back. Then we had lunch and a tour. It was a good experience and since it's a large state school, there are lots of services for the students that you can't get at a private school (gyms and such). " Report Response
