What impressed you positively?

"I loved the school. UIC seems like it is up and coming among medical schools in the US. If NU and UChicago weren't in such proximity, I'd venture to say UIC would be ranked a lot higher. The hospital seems like it is great - I'm sure one would see a lot of diverse pathology here. The students were cool. There are sooo many opportunities for leadership, research, clinical experience, etc. The research program is extremely strong at UIC - it seems like more and more money is being poured into UIC's research developlemt. The new research building is awesome as is the new Outpatient Center." Report Response
