What are your general comments?

"My first interviewer was a neonatologist and completely welcoming. He asked me a few questions, but I honestly had to fight to get my answers in because he was so excited to tell me all about Loyola and Chicago. I actually had to interrupt him so that I could make my other interview. My second interviewer was a pulmonology fellow (I think), very young and friendly. Overall it was a great day that far exceeded my expectations. I was thrilled to hear about the opportunities to spend time training and working in other countries. Loyola seems to have a deep commitment to social justice and a humanitarian approach to the practice of medicine. I had a warm fuzzy feeling the whole day. They also let you know about their decision within 2 weeks of your interview. Have fun!" Report Response
