What are your general comments?

"This interview feedback is only for the Rockford Campus. Coming from a Chicagoland suburb, I was not very excited about coming here for an interview. When I arrived on campus (or lets just say in the building), I was very disappointed. I had an afternoon interview and while all my fellow interviewees were very friendly, I knew that I would not be happy if I had to spend 3 years at the Rockford Campus. I had an afternoon interview and was supposed to report to campus at 12:45. The Dean of the Rockford Campus gave a brief overview of all the sites. Yet, he was not informed about the specifics about the other campuses. After that, we had an tour of the building. We literally saw the library and one classroom (where the majority of classes were conducted). There was no anatomy lab (anatomy is taken at the Urbana-Champaign campus during the first year). Following the tour, we waited in a conference room for our interview. Many students came in to answer some of our questions but even then, they weren't very knowledgeable about the interview process. I luckily had my interview very early in the afternoon. The interview is panel style with 2 faculty members and a medical student. It is closed file; they only have your personal statement and answers to your secondary application essays. The interview was very relaxing and my interviewers were engaging/easy to talk to. The time flew by...Immediately after the interview, applicants are able to leave the campus. I was very happy to have the opportunity to tour the Chicago campus a few weeks prior. Because my interests lie in urban medicine, I will not attend UIC if I do not get placed in Chicago. Nevertheless, both Peoria and Rockford seem to provide excellent opportunities to students interested in rural medicine. In addition, because of the small class size, students receive more personalized attention. " Report Response
