What are your general comments?

"Overall, I was impressed by the amount of clinical exposure and independent attitudes the school fosters. On the tour, all of the medical students seem very friendly and are willing to share their good and bad experiences at UIC. The tour was okay, but did not show the learning facilities to the extent that I would have liked. After the tour, we received lunch which was a sandwich, soda, chips, and a small cup of dessert. The lunch was fun because we ate with medical students and they did their best to field our questions. The interview session was great. I was interviewed by two M4 students and one faculty. Both of the M4 interviews were very conversational and my interview with them went a little long. The professor that interviewed me was a nice man, but a bit of a low-talker. That and he was a bit irritated since I was late to his interview. But after we started talking, he livened up and we had a nice conversation regarding science and research." Report Response
