What impressed you positively?

"Most of the students seem happy there. The facilities were nice and the location (downtown Chicago) is a great advantage. Also, the MD-PhD program administrator went to Northwestern for her graduate training, so she knows very well how the program is run. She knows what the trainees are going through, and is extremely helpful." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The MSTP student who gave us the campus tour was very unhappy with the program. He spoke poorly of the program director and thought that he was wasting his time in the dual degree program. It was quite good to learn about all the negative aspects of the program, since all other students I spoke to were very happy there and offered mostly a one-sided perspective." Report Response
