What are your general comments?

"I really like UIC. I don't know why they are not ranked higher. 88% of the studerts get their top three residency choice and 98% get their top 4. The average boards score is 2-3 points higher than the national mean. They also built a new research facility and are in the process of building a new gymnasium. I also liked the students. They were very helpful and seemed normal and easy to talk to. The interview is laid back, but I was still a little nervous anyway." Report Response
