What impressed you positively?

"The school focuses on treating the whole patient--mind, body, and spirit. They also admit and help develop well-rounded, balanced medical students. The school has wonderful exercise faclility with massage rooms, track, pool, and dance/pilates/yoga classes. The academic facilities were unlike any I have seen. They seemed like they were built yesterday! All of the people were incredible. I went to an anatomy lecture and cadaver lab and all the students were so eager to learn about where I am from and whether I like Loyola so far. I feel like I belong there. And keep in mind, rankings on research grants cannot tell you about the personality of a school or if they will treat you like a valued and respected human being." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had two interviews, one with a faculty member of 20 years and one with a second year med student. They were both friendly and easy to talk to. The dean of admissions is wonderful and she talked to the group of interviewees about the whole admissions process and timeline. Not all schools do this. I liked it a lot." Report Response
