What impressed you positively?

"The students seemed very happy with the school and the administration. I was told that the faculty is very supportive and this was the impression I received from interacting with faculty during the day. Many of the students are very actively engaged in extracurriulars (community service is big at Rush). The other students interviewing also seemed fun, friendly, and laid back. Also, the facilities are beautiful (the hospital is brand new and they are building more new facilities). Another positive is that I didn't realize that many students actually live in downtown Chicago!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I had known that I wouldn't be asked any tough questions about the healthcare industry or ethics! I was worried about this, and at least for my interview, I wasn't asked any questions on these topics. Note that this was just my personal experience." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Don't be nervous about your Rush interview - if you know yourself and know what Rush stands for, you will be fine. They told us during the interview that they are just trying to make sure that you are who you represented yourself to be on your application, so as long as you are true to yourself you'll do great :)" Report Response
