"You are in a windowless room with 3 light switches, labeled A, B, and C, each corresponding to a light bulb in an adjacent room. You may make only one trip to the other room. How can you determine the identity of the light bulbs?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Our curriculum is pretty similar to several other schools across the country. Why choose Pritzker based on the strengths of its curriculum? (By the way, don't tell them the reason you want to go there is because of the strength of its curriculum...bad idea.)" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Pritzker website, MSAR, read my secondary essays over, talked a LOT with my dad who is on faculty there, and shadowed 3 academicians the week prior" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Pritzker has a very nice hospital and new outpatient and advanced medicine building, very nice and intelligent students which I honestly hadn't experienced before, and is a very solid, academic-feeling school. The students seem to really have a desire to learn and have fun at the same time. I honestly met zero uncool people." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"-" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Don't worry: I only indicated a stress level of 7 because EVERY SINGLE PERSON THERE THAT DAY WAS IVY LEAGUE. All 11 of them. Coming from a Big Ten school, that was a little intimidating first thing in the morning. Aside from that, the school is amazing and hands down my top choice, no question. My interview day only strengthened my feelings about the school. This school has zero flaws, as far as I can tell." Report Response
