What impressed you positively?

"i liked the extensive integration of undergrad and med campus (and education), the large number of grad students, med students seemed excited and intelligent, staff was friendly, great opportunities to do research as well as clinical volunteering. people in the hospital were really friendly and everyone asked if they could help me find something (which was really helpful because the directions to the interviews were bad). new hospital coming." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the maps they give you to the interviews aren't very good. audrey sparks is rude. and the talk in the morning is too long and kind of boring. the construction of a new hospital on campus sucked, but on the upside, a new hospital will be open by the next academic year." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"they've just renumbered the elevators in billings hospital, so if you have an interview there, it's probably better to ask how to get there when you get to the hospital. i thought i'd be able to handle the cold in chicago in january, but it really takes a lot out of you! and everyone kept saying it was balmy compared to how it usually gets."
