What impressed you positively?

"finch ( oh excuse me Rosalind Franklin University) is pretty big despite its only 2 buildings. The use of space is awesome. Housing and educational facilities are very modern and clean and very professional looking. Housing off campus is reasonably priced, and it's really quick to get to the school because of the main roads. Student body is really diverse. Impressive Match list." Report Response

"The campus is about 30-40 min away from the city. North Chicago is really spread out with long "country-looking" roads. Wished that we could somehow toured affliated hospitals. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"It was 40-50 degrees with wind. North Chicago has really spread out roads and 1) it took us forever to find a place to eat.. 2) because interview day DOES NOT include lunch. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"CMS is a great school. I would love to go there. Interview day started promptly at 9:30am with cont breakfast and a quick intro by the admissions staff. There were about 12 of us, and we sat in the admissions office waiting for our 2 interviews. it's a doubleheader! My first interview by the admissions director was a "tell me about yourself" type interview -- which I believe was my most "complete" interview thus far. My second interview was with an Int Med prof and surprisingly he asked me technical questions (please read below). No hard feelings though. :) Most of us were done with interviews by 11:30am-12pm. Tour was given by a goofy 2nd year -- kept the tour very interesting. School is pretty big once you start walking around. Medical students are really busy studying but overall like the school. the first 2 years in North Chicago are really geared for traditional learning and high board scores. Excited about doing clinical rotations in the city. I suggest that if you do interview... take a day and explore the city -- Chicago is awesome. BUT always dress warm." Report Response
