What impressed you positively?

"The students are extremely welcoming and really down to earth. Totally could see myself at a school with people like that. Faculty are all caring and welcoming. The school itself has some outdated areas (but what school doesn't) but overall I liked the campus. Beautiful views of Chicago from a lot of the windows in the hospital. I also really liked that everything was so coordinated during the day. The welcome session definitely put me at ease and staff members walked you to and from your different interviews, which was great. Lunch was provided and the Dean of the medical school stopped by to introduce himself. Everything was great." Report Response
