What are your general comments?

"Like I said, the staff and the interviewers were extremely nice and enthusiastic about the school. The school itself is almost completely new or renovated. Great facilities - a dozen or so simulation rooms have just been added. The campus, however, is rather isolated and there isn't much near there. You need a car. The student tour didn't impress me much. The student didn't seem particularly happy to be there, although she told me that was the case no matter what med school you went to. I didn't get that impression from students at other med schools. She also pointed out that most people hadn't chose to come to chicago med but rather this was the only school they had gotten into. On the up side, you can move into the city your 3rd and 4th year for your rotations. Overall, the school/facilities/professors are fine - just wish it was closer to the city. " Report Response
