What impressed you positively?

"Not too much! The director of admissions was very friendly and financial aid. But, the school is quite expensive and students spend much of the day in the classroom leaving little time for anything else. Also, the school is not in the best of neighborhoods." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There were two interviews, each ~50 minutes; one open file and one closed file. The open file went much smoother. The closed file interviewer did not go as smoothly. I was asked about what would happen if I made a mistake, & what I do for fun. It wasn't anything he said, it just seemed that he was not a very positive, nice man. Admissions just pointed us in the direction of where we were suppossed to go & didn't take us there. I had to go across the street to another building & got lost coming back! I also couldn't find my car in their parking garage when I was trying to leave!!! " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the school is a maze!!! Bring a map!!!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Rush is a good school, and it was my third interview so I have adequate experience to compare it to other IL schools. Bascially, the staff and students did not seem very enthusiastic about the school, not that there is anything inherently terrible about that, but I just did not feel that sense of belonging to that school! It seemed that possibly there is more independence of students there than it seemed at other campuses. This can be good for others, but it wasn't something that I'm interested in." Report Response
