What are your general comments?

"I was definitely more impressed than I thought I would have been. The students seemed nice, but not overly enthusiastic about the school, but the medical district would be a great place to learn and go to school. I was dissapointed to hear that the Chicago campus was full, as I had specifically asked the admissions office 2 weeks prior if the campus was full and they said no. My interviews were all really conversational and laid-back. I'm definitely considering this school, thought I'm not sure I'd want to attend the Champaign-Urbana campus. The day was really smoothly run and the admissions officers were very friendly." Report Response
