I am a prospective medical illustration student. Why should I get my masters at the University of Illinois at Chicago and not, say, Johns Hopkins?
Confused in Wyoming*
The AHS Building, where you will take most of your classes, has an honest-to-God working mail chute. And the Biomedical Visualization section used to be the tuberculosis wing of--I believe--an old mental hospital. Mail chutes and tuberculosis! I mean, if that doesn't win you over, I don't know what will.
Best of luck!-
*not a real letter. But if you do actually want to discuss the merits of UIC, email me at josconklin [at] gmail [dot] com, and I'd be happy to talk it over.
