What impressed you positively?

"The campus is a lot bigger than other DO schools that I visited because there are several other graduate programs at Midwestern. Since the school is relatively new (5 yrs), the facilities are very nice and new." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The lack of diversity of the students I saw around campus and in my interviewing group." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"On the school website, they mention problem based learning in their curriculum. When I asked about it during my interview, they didn't know what I was talking about. They don't really use PBL in their curriculum--they really meant discussion groups in some of their classes." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, the interviewing experience was very good. The school is very organized and really sells the school well and has incredibly high board passing rates. Make sure you tell the guard that you are there for the DO school interview. I was sent to the pharmacy interviewing building. Instead of introducing everyone to each other, they start you off in a financial aid talk telling you how expensive the school is. It probably would have been better to hear that information later when I was a little more relaxed. Even though all schools cost around the same, the financial aid talk in the very beginning starts your day off stressed out. The interviewers, however, know your file well and ask you questions based on your background. I wasn't asked any trick questions or really challenging ones. The faculty were friendly and students were extremely enthusiastic about the program. I got in and may go there!" Report Response
