What impressed you positively?

"The people there really like Northwestern. They try really hard to make you comfortable. The city is awesome. The hospital is freaking awesome, exactly a cross between a hotel and a mall (complete with escalators)! THeir lecture halls and facilities are great." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"We saw the anatomy lab; it seemed a little dingy, but it was also my first interview and my first tour, so I could be mistaken. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Don't talk to the people around you, a lot of people take different routes to get to where they are now (the interview), but you are all qualified in your own way. Basically, I ended up losing a lot of confidence going into the interview because I talked to a bunch of much more accomplished people around me. It really hurt my interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, it wasn't bad. Northwestern is a great place to go if you like big cities and extreme urban life. Most students live within a few blocks of the campus in downtown Chicago, which is really great. Just relax, be yourself. The people there WANT to get to know you. They want to see the person you are, silly, weird, kooky, whatever. Just chill." Report Response
