"The interview was geared towards knowing you as an individual, the interviewers were very nice and it made me comfortable." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I interviewed at the Peoria campus and it seemed like their focus in mainly on their students getting the best scores on board exams. That's what the students praise about the school as well, the fact that they do better on board exams than even the Chicago campus. There are also lots of lecture hours. What I am looking for is a campus where you get clinical training as early as possible and the Rockford campus offers this so I hope I get to choose where I'm posted. otherwise it is a very good school.
