What impressed you positively?

"EVERYONE was so incredibly friendly and seemed to absolutely love it there. The faculty seems very approachable. And you are given packets of notes for each class that covers everything you need to know for exams--so you don't need to go to lecture if you prefer and you don't need to rely on a note-taking service. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The cost--over $50,000 per year. And while the school is in Chicago, which is great, the specific area where it's located isn't that nice. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I debated over whether to stay in a hotel right by the school or to stay downtown (which I did) and enjoy the city while I was there. In the end, the cab ride from downtown took no more than 15 minutes and cost around $10, so there was little advantage to staying right near the school. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day was very organized and staff took you directly to your interview and picked you up so that you didn't get lost. We were given a packet of information about the school and program and had to opportunity to meet a number of students from all four years during the tour and during lunch. The 2 interviewers were very friendly and definitely seemed interested in getting to know me and convince me to go to Rush, rather than trying to fluster me. It was an early day (8:30), unfortunately, but we were done by 2 pm. " Report Response
