What impressed you negatively?

"My med student interviewer was a no-show. But they paired me up with one of my tour guides so I was really relaxed with him and it went well." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"They want applicants who are interested in being leaders in the medical field. They aren't looking for people who want to be primary care. They want people who are going to be the best at whatever field they choose. Also they have a MD/MPH program where you enter the MD program at UChicago and after two years you go to either Harvard or Hopkins for the MPH (1 year), then return and finish your 3rd and 4th years of med school. Very appealing!" Report Response
