"Collaborative curriculum, MD/MPH program, relaxed atmosphere, patient-centered hospital, emphasis on PBL over lecture, breadth of Physician, patient, and society courses. Feinberg jumped to near first choice for me." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"COST. Of tuition, of living in Chicago, everything. The price tag is pretty steep, and financial aid isn't wonderful. They only gave us a packet on financial aid, one wonders why they didn't give us a presentation on it. The dorms, while a good way to meet people, aren't wonderful, cost $700+ a month, and require that you get a $200/month meal plan to a cafeteria that doesn't get good reviews." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"If you're taking the CTA transit trains to downtown Chicago, those damn farecard machines don't give change!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, a long day. I was a bit nervous about the panel interview, but it ended up going by pretty fast for me, I felt quite relaxed. I do hope I get into this program, it really is unique. How likely it'll be that I can afford this place? That's another story." Report Response
