hey all...
I'm looking at mostly midwest Gen surg programs, but have only one available day for both of these program interviews. Wondering if anyone out there has any thoughts on either place to help me figure out which interview to go to.

I've been to both - I think they are basically comparable programs academically. There is a BIG difference between living in Detroit and Chicago though, and you'll see a lot more trauma at Wayne. Depends on what you want out of the program. Loyola is kind of out in the suburbs a bit, lots of blunt trauma and people with insurance, Wayne is downtown and sees all penetrating stuff and indigent population.
