What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are top-notch. You really couldn't ask for anything better in a medical school. EVERYONE is friendly. I would say that throughout the entire day, at least 30-40 current medical students ranging from M1-M4 came up to me and introduced themselves, asked me if I had any questions, and sincerely wished me luck. I felt like a very welcome guest." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"nothing really. It seems like most students live in areas a few miles from the school or even in downtown Chicago so everyone drives to school. Public transport in the suburbs doesn't seem that great but that seems standard in most cities." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"more about the curriculum but it didn't come up in the interviews" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall fantastic. Two interviews: one student and one professor/physician/committee member (he's very involved with the school). The admissions office staff is very accomidating and extremely friendly. The students are very friendly and don't be afraid to ask them questions because they all go out of their way to make you feel welcome. You get lunch (use the whole $6 card up if you can) and a great tour. Mine was one-on-one with a student that clearly thought highly of Loyola. At the end of your day they let you know about the decision process and you're done. Expect to be there from around 8:30-3pm or so, but you have a lot of down time to sit in on classes (sit in on a small group discussion if you can) and explore. Definitely explore. If you interview at Loyola it will be a good experience so relax." Report Response
