What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"The website really needs to be updated. Difficult to discern why Midwestern is so great before the interview itself. I'm glad I attended the interview as it was the redeeming factor that made me eager to learn there. I also heard that not all lectures are recorded/podcasted. This is something that should be available to students, as many other colleges are offering this service. MSUCOM/Western are just a few examples of full podcasted lectures along with the majority of allopathic counterparts. This can be a deterring factor for many students." Report Response
