What impressed you negatively?

"no hospital affiliation - although they put a positive spin on this by saying they are affiliated with ALL Chicago hospitals, making them unique, I still consider it a negative. They constantly needed to reassure themselves by stating that any area physician would chose an RFU grad over any other area Chicago med school grad, which stuck me as odd." Report Response

"very suburban location" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, not a remarkable experience. Seemed disorganized - you start off in the waiting room, then the dean comes in for personal greetings and forced small talk. During this, your interviewers come take you away. After two interviews, you sit and wait in the room...random 1st years come in to openly talk with the group. Following this, you get a tour of the facilities and then lunch...then you leave. There was no formal presentation of the curriculum, Q&A session, financial session, or anything normally found at other interviews. There was not even a timeline of the day presented at the beginning; it just sort of started." Report Response
