What are your general comments?

"The day exceeded my expectations. My view of UIC was that the med school was in a state of disrepair and that the admissions office was disorganized...not the case. The students seem content with the school, not exactly ecstatic but not whiny either. Clinical exposure is great cuz you are in the city. No breakfast was served so eat before you come, trust me. I had 2 great interviews with faculty, who were quite interested (surpisingly) in what i had to say so I thought it was a good day overall " Report Response
