What are your general comments?

"I was very impressed with Loyola. The students seemed to really enjoy the school and curriculum. Loyola tries to cater to the 'whole person'--so, while academics is the focus of medical school, they don't neglect the social/physical components of their students. They seemed to have a great student camaraderie (the night before my interview was their annual 'Powder Puff' football game between the M1s and M2s) and had a pretty amazing gym. The campus is in the suburbs of Chicago, which I personally liked--but it is only about a 20 minute drive to the city (depending on traffic)." Report Response
