What are your general comments?

"The facilities were very nice, and the interview experience was laid back. You do spend most of the day in a waiting room, but they did tell us that we could leave the room to use the computer room or watch tv if we liked (no one left the room). The interviews were mostly conversational, but only by two faculty members (one was supposed to be a student). Also, we were told that students would drop by to talk with us in our waiting room, but none did. I was disappointed that the only student we ever met was our tour guide - supposedly their student body is a real strength. We did get in to the anatomy lab (although directly after lunch), and the rest of the facilities were nice. Most students live nearby for the first two years, but move downtown to Chicago for their third and fourth years, to do rotations at Chicago area hospitals, which is really nice. Overall, the school seemed like a nice place, albeit definitely remote from a major city or the resources/diversions of a major city." Report Response
