I think Virion might be able to share some specific info as I believe she will be attending that program this fall.
I had strongly considered this program for a long time. It has some amazing aspects to its credit- premiere research facilities, faculty that include world experts [at least in my area of interest], great reputation, cool city, lots of well funded labs. Also, this program has an umbrella structure which doesn't lock you into a single track of coursework and rotations. They also are vaguely affiliated with IGP which allows Micro students to do Phd/MPH.
I ended up deciding against it for a variety of reasons that may or may not be applicable to you. The climate of the midwest is godawful during the winter. Paying for parking is the bane of my existence. I have no patience for traffic. Umbrella programs can require you to take courses you have no interest in. Chicago rent is high (I am moving to NC). They have inflexible teaching requirements.
Ultimately, you really have to get to know the faculty at a place to decide if its right for you. If you are picking a grad school out of the 30-some schools regularly mentioned on this site, you will have a high quality graduate experience with broad and deep coursework, career development opportunities, lots of opportunity to publish, networking possibilities, mentorship and many other career making bonuses. The things that make each grad school different in the biomedical sciences are the people involved.
