What impressed you positively?

"The students all seem very tight-knit and the school is small enough that there's plenty of one-on-one time with lecturers." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Chicago Medical School at RFUMS has been on a probation sanctioned by LCME, and they just recently were told that they are no longer under probation but are still being closely monitored. Also, the school is an hour away from the city of Chicago, and the North Chicago/Gurnee/Waukegan area is nothing to get excited about. Not to mention, we went to a nearby restaurant and discovered that sales tax is 15 percent! There's a fairly high cost of living that I think is just not worth it." Report Response
