"The University of Illinois regional campuses/facilities seem to be in worse condition than the main campus (downtown Chicago)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"After the initial icebreaker, I was asked a very difficult question (see below). As I didn't know exactly how to answer it, I became VERY nervous which probably permeated through the rest of the interview. I didn't think I had done very well. Plus, because the interview was only 25 minutes, I felt like a had an extremely short amount of time to "sell myself", making me even more nervous. However, I was accepted to the medical school. Students that interview at regional locations and are accepted aren't bound to attending that particular campus." Report Response
