"Tell me about your personal characteristics. (Second interviewer obviously was trying to just jot down stuff on his interviewee sheet in as little time as possible.)" Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"Where do you see yourself in 10 years." Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"Choose either a specific ethical, general ethical, or current events topic which I will provide and discuss. (Really not that intimidating because I love talking my head off about stuff like this. I chose current events and we ended up talking about gay marriage.)" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Nothing in particular. I think I asked my student interviewer harder questions than he asked me." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Talked to friends who are students at Finch (oops, Rosalind Franklin), just reviewed some of the material I had used to prepare for previous interviews, not much at all." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Supportive staff and administration, friendly professors, nice new facilities, good environment for the first two years (on old golf course, far away from distractions.)" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"A/B/C/D/F grading system. Curriculum is en-route to integration, but is still rather disjointed and dry. Testing and studying tends to be very stressful. Interviewing session lasted from 8:30 until 3:30, mostly just waiting around in the alumni lounge. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How long it would take between the first and second interviewers (over 4 hrs!)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Not a bad school with good match results (especially for CA residents.) Good hospitals to rotate through. Chicago is a great city to live in the last two years. North Chicago is not great, but it's manageable and has a good feel that caters to studying. The facilities are new and nice, the people in general are great. Just a little to stressed out from the A/B/C/D/F grading system and all the tests and non-integrated classes. They do hand out notes to all the classes so you don't really need to buy the books or go to lectures." Report Response
