What impressed you positively?

"I LOVED how friendly everyone was, and their committment to service. And their facilities are phenomenal... the gym is too! Loyola Chicago was definitely my favorite school out of all that I interviewed at. The students were enthusiastic and fun, and not stressed even though it was a test day, that meant a lot to me in deciding where I would be happiest spending my 4 years of medical school. I love the service programs it offers and the chance to travel to South/Central America after the first summer. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing at all. The only thing that came about later is that the school isn't ranked all that high in national rankings... it makes it hard when you come back home telling everyone how much you loved the school and they tell you to choose a "higher ranked" one. :( " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Arrive early in the morning for check in. I interviewed with 3 other students... we filled out paperwork, heard a short talk, I interviewed with a second year med student who I instantly clicked with. She was very friendly, asked interesting questions... and was very happy to answer mine! She arranged it with her friend so that he could take me, and the other interviewees with him to his small group discussion class, so we were able to sit in on that class, as well as in a big lecture class. Next up was a tour of the facilities, watched a video about the service immersion trips, and then interview #2 with an orthopedic surgeon, who was also very friendly and intelligent. this time we talked alot more about the problems found within medicine. The admission staff was SOOO helpful... the secretary even called her husband and woke him up to ask about bringing me a 1/2 off coupon for a Chicago attraction I wanted to visit the next day. It was a very positive interview experience with a very vibrant, sevice oriented school. :) " Report Response
