What are your general comments?

"The day started at 8:45am with coffee and a long introduction to the school and its philosophies. There was an hour-long interview with a med student which was very casual and informative. Then we had lunch and a tour with current med students. We had time to socialize and ask the med students any questions we had. The last interview was an hour, with a faculty member. The faculty member was very nice and easy to talk to. I really enjoyed my visit, and it made uchicago one of my top choices." Report Response
