What impressed you positively?

"The hospital is AMAZING. Built in 1998, it is a hybrid of a 5 star hotel and a large shopping mall. The classrooms we saw were pretty nice as well and downtown Chicago is an exciting place to be. I went with a student host to the new gym facilities and it is also AMAZING!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Panel interview is fairly relaxed. Get to know your group during the breaks if you can and try to be at ease with one another. I also heard some groups say that they were asked to respond to a another student's answers so pay attention to the other questions and answers. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Love the city. Love the location. Panel interview was not as bad as expected. Be yourself, don't worry about competing with the other members of your group, and you will come across like you should, as a good person. Lot of waiting during the day. I was not sold on the school by the staff nor by the students. Still, it is a good school and the facilities are new and enticing. " Report Response
