What impressed you positively?

"I really like the group interview style--having a chance to hear what my peers have to say and also being able to interact. We were never each asked the same question so I never felt like we were competing. I also really liked the morning introduction and felt that there was a very clear overview of the school given. The mock PBL was also interesting." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I really fell in love with Northwestern. Everyone was very friendly and it seems like it is a very stress-free learning environment. The first two years are completely pass-fail which is great. I really like the fact that everything is organ-systems based from the beginning. There is a large emphasis placed on Problem Based Learning and other group work. You are only in lecture for about 2 hrs/today. The clinical experiences set up for the first two years happen 2 days/week in the afternoon in your college (4 colleges/class to make the size smaller). Overall NW seems like a great school that will give you a great medical education!" Report Response
