What are your general comments?

"The day started at 8:45am. There was an overview of Pritzker history and there curricula guidelines and mottos. The first interview was at 10am with a faculty member at the hospital. This took about an hour and it was very conversational and relaxed. After that I read until lunch at 12pm. During lunch we were entertained by medical students with conversation and question and answer and this took about 30 minutes. Next we went on a campus tour which showed all the new construction taking place. This lasted til about 2 at which time my stuent interview took place. THis interview was harder than the faculty interview and she asked pretty tough questions but she was so nice about it that it was easy to talk to her. THis went on for about 45-50 minutes and the day was over. We also got a group photo which was good." Report Response
