What impressed you positively?

"The students and faculty love it there, the location is great, the view of downtown form the library." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Disorganization. I was one of six people who was left waiting outside of the wrong room (but the room on our confirmation email)until 5 minutes AFTER the day was to start. Also, my open-file interviewer hadn't read my file and my closed file interview was a jerk." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The interviews were at the end of the day, so you already have so much information about Rush prior to asking your questions to your interviewers. I also wish I would have known that our day was the last interview day of the year (with rolling admissions, I leave little room for hope of an acceptance)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"You have two interviews: one totally open-file and one totally closed-file. However, my open file interview was really closed because he was in surgery all morning and didn't have time to read my file, but I thought it was friendly enough. Then my closed file interview was awful, he questioned my ability to perform during residency given my age and left me 25 minutes to ask him questions. His answers were vague and not very helpful."
