How did you prepare for the interview?

"Slept well, read the SDN forums. Seems they like to ask ethics questions, healthcare questions and reflection questions." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"How friendly and laid back everyone was. It seems like a very supportive and productive environment." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The facilities were new and good, but the school itself is very small. And, this school is not affiliated with any one hospital. Most M3s move 1-hr south to Downtown Chicago for their wards, so M1/M2s hardly ever see M3/M4s." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Resist the temptation to eat at the White Castle the midnight before your interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Interview starts at 9am in the waiting room of the admissions office. You sit there with all the other interviewees, waiting for a faculty member to come in to call your name and take you away. Meanwhile, you can talk amongst yourselves or to the M1/M2s that drop by to answer any questions (if you get bored easily, you may want to bring a book). Lunch is at noon, and after lunch is the tour of their facilities. Their facility is small, so the tour lasts about 30 minutes. Everyone (from the Dean all the way down to the secretary) seems to be very laid back, kind and pleasant. Overall, I was impressed with the medical school. Everyone was happy to be there, and I think I would be, too." Report Response
