What are your general comments?

"Midwestern University is in a nice community just outside of Chicago. Perfect location if you enjoy having the convenience of a major city nearby, but want to be a bit of a distance from the hustle and bustle. The campus is beautiful, and the program seems excellent. CCOM has a nice passing rate on the boards. They do not focus on creating primary care physicians in underdeserved, as many DO schools tend to. While there, I was unable to find a student who was unhappy with their experience at CCOM. Overall seems like an excellent DO program. Definately my first DO choice if accepted there."
