What are your general comments?

"I got to Chicago the night before, checked into International House (really nice, quaint dorm, only $50/night), then figured out where the admissions office was for the next day. Went back to Int'l House, and was hoping to maybe talk to some students, but it was *really* quiet (maybe it was exam period?), not many people just hanging out, but nice nonetheless. Interview day starts around 9am, someone gives you a little one-hour schpeal about the school, then you have a 1-hr interview with a student in the morning (10am or 11am), followed by an informal lunch and tour with a bunch of med students, then another interview with a doctor/faculty in the afternoon (2pm or 3pm). Overall, I had a REALLY great time. The student questions were probably "harder" but it's really more of a see how you think kind of deal; I was a little more perplexed by my doctor interview, which only lasted 30 minutes, but she was nice nonethless. Lunch and interview were really funny, the medstudents were really great, and I could tell I'd really like it there (despite the isolation and cold weather)" Report Response
