Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

The courses are taught by some of the best instructors in the field. All the instructors have a wealth of experience in their respective fields. The instructor to student ratio is excellent! There's so much value in interacting with other students who come from diverse professional and academic backgrounds. Unfortunately, the cost of the program is extremely high.

Faculty accessibility and availability of one of the strongest aspects of this medical school. The faculty genuinely want you to succeed, and they are there to help you in any way they can. It is a very expensive medical school; there is no way around that. They do try to provide as much financial aid as they can. There is no subsidized student housing, and Chicago can be very expensive if you don't "shop around" for an apartment first.

The Feinberg school of medicine has recently rolled out a new curriculum. While it is academically challenging an includes early clinical experience it does not leave much time to pursue individual interests.

FSOM has provided me with a invaluable education, and the first two years prepared me very well for USMLE step 1. The faculty are great and most are very approachable. I feel that I have opportunities here to work with some of the best physicians and researchers in their respective fields, which is something I wouldn't have had at a lower tier school.

Because it is night school and class is one night a week or sometimes one day on a weekend, it is very conducive to my full-time work schedule. Professors are highly engaging and knowledgeable and they understand the pressures of working full time while in graduate school.
