"buildings were old, no affiliated hospital close by, anatomy lab looked like something out of the Saw movies, students weren't enthusiastic--I heard more than one respond with "this is the only place I got in" when asked why the chose here" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"CMS is not in chicago or anywhere near chicago, it is close to Wisconsin. If you have to travel from chicago to school, leave yourself plenty of time to catch all the trains you'll hop northbound. The "interprofessional environment" they tout is BS. it's just a med school and podiatry school sharing the same campus--no classes together or clinical stuff together with any health professions students" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My expectations of this school were not high and the visit confirmed my expectations. The school is in the middle of nowhere, but all of the students move to the city for clinical stuff so maybe it is a good undistracted environment to learn in" Report Response
