"The philosophy of the school; the dean taking so much time to personally show us the school and tell us about his ideas; the state-of-the-art facilities; the fact that all professors have been practicing dentists for many years; the fact that not a single D2 that I met said life was hell in dental school."

"facilities and friendliness of students" More from this Member | Report Response

"New facilities, star faculty attracted from around the country." More from this Member | Report Response

"The sim lab was amazing. The new clinic which will be open soon will be awesome with the number of seats they have. The fact that they concentrate on a specific body part or system at a time. They emphasize the clinical aspect much more than the research aspect. The staff was also very laid back and friendly." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything. The dean is great, and really wants to get to know all the students and actually sits down with them at lunch meeting every so often to get feedback on how everything is going.

"Friendliness of faculty, very nice facilities, Midwestern's reputation and outlook for the future" More from this Member | Report Response

"Lots: The school is very new and employs cutting edge technology. Toured the brand new sim lab, which has HD video cameras for the instructor to use to monitor the progress of the students at their stations (in addition to the 25 instructors that will be circulating through the lab). They also plan on using CEREC or similar technology as an option for labwork, and all charting and x-rays are digital. They also plan on having i-cat scanning for oral surgury cases. They employ a systems-based approach to learning coursework. For example, when you study the cardiovascular system, you will learn the histology, biochemistry, microbiology, pharmacology, anatomy, physiology, and perform a case study, all of which helps integrate what you learn more effectively (theoretically at least). The faculty are very friendly, well-qualified, and genuinely concerned with providing the best education possible. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Where they are heading with technology. They'll have brand new clinics. The community service opportunities. The campus is really nice and should be expanding over the coming years. The weather is awesome. And the fact that the faculty was pretty straight forward about their current progress." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"One of the interviewers attitudes. Emphasis on capitalizing dentistry." More from this Member | Report Response

"One of the interviewees seemed to be really grilling me on every answer I gave. Near the end he kept looking at this watch and sighing while I was answering. When I asked one question at the end of the interview, he asked if I was done asking questions. For a day that lasted from 7 am until 4 pm, I felt really rushed out of the actual interview portion." More from this Member | Report Response

"N/A" More from this Member | Report Response

"Taking basic sciences with medicine and pharmacy" More from this Member | Report Response

"long interview tour" More from this Member | Report Response

"The is my worst interview experience for several reasons. Firstly, they really try to sell you on the school, to the point where they lie to you. For example, they say they are the only school that allows students to place implants - not true at all. Secondly, I found them to be very ingenuine towards people and I didn't like that. For example, they almost made one of the interviewees cry. The poor guy came out like he saw a ghost and didn't even want to tour the school and wanted to go home. At first I thought maybe he just wasn't prepared but when I interviewed they were very grilling. Definitely not professional interviewers. They didn't make me feel comfortable at all and seemed to question everything I said in a negative way. I had 11 interview offers so far and attended 9 so I am speaking with experience and comparison to quite a few other schools. Overall, I think they have a good program but the faculty I met and saw that day were not great. Hopefully someone from administration reads this and improves it for the next cycle." More from this Member | Report Response

"Tuition cost" More from this Member | Report Response

"the location is a bit remote from the big city and cost." More from this Member | Report Response

"If you on the last interview panel you have to wait a long time....." More from this Member | Report Response

"Just my two cents-- Faculty kept talking about the amount of money their graduated dentists earn. Based on what they have emphasized in presentations, the school focuses on training their students to be competent dentists, but de-prioritizes improving oral health via service and research (coincidentally the second half of their mission statement). They sometimes mention research, but students don't get involved much, especially once clinical training begins. This is a good school for students looking for a solid foundation in dentistry (plus other procedural certificates) and a high-paying salary. Not for students interested in making a big impact in oral health through research or dental public health." More from this Member | Report Response

"Price of the School." More from this Member | Report Response

"The "drill" style interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"Expensive, everything seemed like it was focused on preparing you to make money instead of actually helping patients in the future" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is new so their system is unproven." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Luch" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was a little disappointed that the interview was kind of short -- I felt like they were rushing through it a bit." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. This school is awesome!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Lots of down time." More from this Member | Report Response

"The whole day was awesome. Could not think of one thing I did not like other than maybe the cost of tuition." More from this Member | Report Response

"The clinic, although it was brand new and pristine, was hardly being used. That's partially because there were no 4th years yet, but it still seemed odd." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview lasted way too long! Got there at 7:45 a.m., didn't get done until 2:45 p.m. Also, it's hard to compare the school since there's no history or other data. VERY expensive school - over $96,000 per year for the total cost." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was hard to get a lot of information across in 8 minutes and everyone in my group agreed it was almost impossible to tell how some interviewers were responding/interpreting our answers (IL)" More from this Member | Report Response

"its hot" More from this Member | Report Response

"the fact that it's on the expensive side for a dental school, and that it's new so no history on NBDE 2 (but they did great on NBDE 1), no alumni, no known specialization rate as of now." More from this Member | Report Response

"The dental student that I was interviewing with was SO unresponsive. I kept looking at him during the interview when I was talking and he was always just blank and didn't even smile! I'm not sure what his deal was, but I feel like the way he was might have impacted my interview negatively. From what I heard from everyone else's interviews, he was the only one that acted this way." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. It's a great place. Unfortunately it is on the high side of cost for a dental education though." More from this Member | Report Response

"They haven't bought land yet to build the clinic, and the dental school wont be finished until next summer. They are a little behind on construction because the workers were on strike for a few weeks ... hopefully they wont strike again ... ? (IL)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The estimated price of attendance and the financial aid ladies were not available, so we watched a 10 minute video they had made. Disappointing." More from this Member | Report Response

"School is brand new, and the clinic wasn't open to view at that point (it was a week later, though, and I've seen the pictures online. Looks amazing)" More from this Member | Report Response

"There are no seniors. the school is new, established in 2008" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really" More from this Member | Report Response

"WAITING. The process took FOR-EV-ER, FOR-EV-ER, FOR-EV-ER. Also, they gave $9 food voucher, but that wasn't enough for a not-so-tasty lunch." More from this Member | Report Response

"interviewer was trying to convince to me to go into another career, school is too new thus no reputation" More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview didn't go well for me...I felt attacked for the way I handled a cheating situation." More from this Member | Report Response

"high-school like environment..seriously!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The clinic will not be completed until next semester at the earliest. Therefore, there is not anyone to speak with about 3rd and 4th year" More from this Member | Report Response

"Lack of knowledge about my application and who I was; lack of diversity among student population; defensiveness when you ask about problems the school has had being so new; behind schedule on completing the clinic; lack of interest by the D2 student present at the interview. The interview seemed like amateur hour." More from this Member | Report Response

"The clinic isn't finished yet so you have to base your decision on faith that the clinic will be successful." More from this Member | Report Response

"Cost. Location is decent." More from this Member | Report Response

"Do not expect breakfast (expect pastries and muffins in sealed plastic and juice). I wish I had clicked better with my interviewer. They said to expect to take out $388,000 in loans for the four years (Way more than anywhere else I applied). Sat around in a waiting room for about 60-70% of the time I was there (7:15-2:00)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Clinic is still not done yet. Also, school is fairly new and weather can be hot.." More from this Member | Report Response

"bad weather and food" More from this Member | Report Response

"HOT!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Although my interviewer overall was pretty good, he seemed somewhat uninterested in what I was saying for responses, the dental student that was interviewing me seemed way more interested in what I was actually saying, so I dont know if that was bad for me or if he did that to everyone." More from this Member | Report Response

"Converserly, the school is underdeveloped and does not have a clinic. I was asked if I had any questions and mine was this: "What are your clinical criteria/expectations?" The response was obvious guarded body language. They seemed to attack my knowledge of the school, saying, "we don't have a clinic yet." "I'm aware of that," I said, "but what will you expect of this current year's class?" The answer was fuzzy at best. I did not get the feeling that they even know what they want as far as clinical experience goes." More from this Member | Report Response

"cost, interviewers" More from this Member | Report Response

"They have no track record. No one knows how well their students will do on the boards or getting into specialties." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall nothing major. The food wasnt great and a few of the buildings were a bit small. The average age was 27 and they dont have any undergraduate programs. These could all be positives in some way, however I guess I'm just used to a larger school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing to say. I guess it would have been nice to see the clinic but it wont be done for a year or so when the current class will begin to need it." More from this Member | Report Response

"Dental clinic is "far"" More from this Member | Report Response

"Financial Aid presentation, Dean's presentation, he mostly talked about wild animals and showed their pictures....!?!" More from this Member | Report Response

"You don't get to do your own lab work" More from this Member | Report Response

"The price" More from this Member | Report Response

"The location of the school. Given that its only 15-20 minutes away from Phoenix (the fifth largest city in America), it's really located in a bare and desolate area. It's not a desert, but it does not seem to be full of culture or a very high traffic place. Although people will be studying intensely for the first couple of years at least, its reassuring to know that a school is in a culturally live location. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The speed and disinterest that the financial aid guy showed during his presentation. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Obviously there is only one class of students and they are only in their second week so it's hard to talk about the program, everything is still developing," More from this Member | Report Response

"The cost. Plan on spending 80K/year to attend (tuition, fees, and living expenses)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"Dental clinic was not built yet; however, medical clinic is modern and impressive. " More from this Member | Report Response

"the school seemed really full of themselves and the interviewers couldn't really answer the questions that I asked them. On top of that, they criticized the school that i interviewed with previously " More from this Member | Report Response

"The dental building wasn't even built yet." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing real negative, but the dental facilities were not complete yet so you couldn't actually tour the labs. It was more of a disappointment." More from this Member | Report Response

"Size of school is kind of small... only about 1500 students total. That is smaller than my old highschool." More from this Member | Report Response

"No facilities to really tour since for obvious reasons they haven't finished building them yet. Tuition is killer, I don't know why I should pay so much!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The actual interview. The interviewers seemed uninterested in hearing the answers to questions they had just asked." More from this Member | Report Response

"The building is not built, so you had to use your imagination. Obviously it will be nice when it is built because it will be new, but hopefully construction does not encounter any problems and delay anything. Our tour guide was not a student and seemed pretty unknowledgable about everything, and he did seem to enjoy the smell of the cadaver lab. He just seemed kind of disinterested in everything. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. Some people say that there is a high school feel to it, which isn't a bad thing. I had gone to a small university near Chicago, which was pretty much the same, so i felt right at home. They send you a DVD before the interview, so there aren't any surprises :)" More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How unconventional the interview questions would be." More from this Member | Report Response

"A lot of walking so if you are wearing heels, consider flats or bring a change of shoes!" More from this Member | Report Response

"That the clinic is not next to the school and that classes are in different building on campus, there is not a dental building that you have everything all in one building" More from this Member | Report Response

"Don't mention you are considering specializing, they really look down upon that since they focus on general dentistry." More from this Member | Report Response

"How out of the norm the interview questions were going to be." More from this Member | Report Response

"How hot it would be to walk around in suits." More from this Member | Report Response

"You will be walking a lot around the campus as you tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"Know the mission statement" More from this Member | Report Response

"How awesome this school is" More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer and his background" More from this Member | Report Response

"The building you're supposed to go to in the beginning is a little tricky to find." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not to stress out about this low-stress interview day :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"That it was finals week and no students were really around, haha." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt very prepared. However, there is a lot of down time in between the interviews and tours." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was one senior faculty and one second year student." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, all my questions were straight from this site." More from this Member | Report Response

"that it was closed file" More from this Member | Report Response

"that the building where you meet for interviewing is on the left side when you enter campus, the right side is the clinic." More from this Member | Report Response

"Can't think of anything. Online information prepared me very well." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the school does not exist yet. (IL)" More from this Member | Report Response

"how stressfree it would be" More from this Member | Report Response

"Check in at the security post as you enter the campus. They have a pass that will get you into the locked building where you interview. The campus is very secure and you have to have a card/key to get into any building." More from this Member | Report Response

"People said there was an excruciating amount of wait time. It's not that bad! Be friendly with the students and the other interviewees. Make your presence known, but include others in the conversation. Remember: the interview lasts ALL day." More from this Member | Report Response

"That there was a student who interviews with the professor." More from this Member | Report Response

"That it would have been so stress free" More from this Member | Report Response

"How awesome this school would be." More from this Member | Report Response

"that it is very warm" More from this Member | Report Response

"it was gonna be like 100degrees.. in november!" More from this Member | Report Response

"There is a lot of downtime, but it's pretty cool to talk to the other applicants from all across the country and find out about them." More from this Member | Report Response

"No need to worry about it." More from this Member | Report Response

"That there was going to be about 4 hours of doing nothing, just waiting around." More from this Member | Report Response

"There would be sooooooo much time sitting around. Its good in the sense that you can socialize with the other applicants and dental students but I think its a little too much. You could easily condense the entire day down to 3 hours and still be fine." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt as well prepared as I could have been. I would have liked to know that the (marketing) tour ended at 2:30, not 12:45 as I was told. This made getting to my plane on time quite a harrowing experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"who would be interviewing me" More from this Member | Report Response

"They will have looked at your application and will ask specific questions about it." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. Maybe that I could have spent a lot less for a different cab service to the school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"How laid back the interview process was" More from this Member | Report Response

"That the interviwer will be mean and yell at me! I thought i did horroble on my interview but i got accepted!! :) " More from this Member | Report Response

"how many people would be interviewing that day. there were 18 people in my interview group" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"How nothing is really set in concrete yet, that goes for the buildings and their course material. Everything just kind of still seems up in the air, and they made it sound as if the first year students will be almost like lab rats being experimented on for future students." More from this Member | Report Response

"It is really hot there! But, they're pretty cool about taking off your blazer and loosing the tie up a bit. And if you wear a turban, then go for a lighter shade :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall this school is very very nice. The people are amazing, professional and funny. their facilities are top notch and produce (from what I heard from other people in the dentistry field) the best practitioners in the country." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers are trying to be very friendly and conversational, but they will cut you when they need to move to the next question on their list. Two faculty members. They say it's partial open file, they have everything you submitted besides your grades and DAT scores." More from this Member | Report Response

"MWU puts a great effort in selling their program. If I were you I would take what they say with a grain of salt." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school, beautiful campus, everyone was very friendly and accomidating." More from this Member | Report Response

"Make sure to have a handful of questions prepared for your interviewer. Also, most interviews usually have an adcom member and a student; however, my student had to leave for an exam so I just had the adcom member." More from this Member | Report Response

"What a great experience to tour this school. It was absolutely pristine, state of the art, and a genuinely positive learning environment geared towards producing great CLINICAL dentists." More from this Member | Report Response

"One of my favorite schools so far, although I almost fell asleep during the touring and lectures because it was so boring. A lot of wasted time but good overall experience and really liked the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very relaxed, do as much research on the school as you can beforehand and come with lots of questions - I think having LOTS of questions ready would have improved my interview (IL)" More from this Member | Report Response

"awesome" More from this Member | Report Response

"After the interview, this school definitely ranks very high on my list. The interview is low stress and you have lots of down time, so have fun and socialize with your fellow interviewees!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I would have no problem choosing to spend my four years as a dental student at this school." More from this Member | Report Response

"I think that the school has the potential to be great, but it doesn't seem to have its act to gether yet. I think its kind of shady that they are matriculating students now, I think they are just desperate for tuition money so they can keep building. I think it was kind of shady overall ... decided I wont go there even if it is the only school I get into. Not worth the risk. (IL)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Make sure to be well groomed. The Dean talked to us and mentioned that he puts a lot of emphasis on being neatly dressed and groomed. Specifically mentioned nice suit and tie and no-little facial hair for males." More from this Member | Report Response

"Incredible school. Low stress interview. Best experience out of all other schools, by far." More from this Member | Report Response

"its a great school. But the weather is crazy hot... too hot ..." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school really has things put together well. They know what they are doing and students there are lucky to be a part of Midwestern" More from this Member | Report Response

"Be prepared for lots of waiting, and check the weather ahead of time. Be yourself, and have questions prepared to ask them. Don't be critical of their lack of a clinic... apparently they know they don't have one yet." More from this Member | Report Response

"i didn't really click with my interviewer" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nice school, just not a place for me" More from this Member | Report Response

"OK school to me. Very small but new. They interview sooo many students and if you are not seriously considering the school, don't interview. I spent ~$600 for a bad taste in my mouth. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I was impressed with the school. I think they are designing a school of the 21st century that will teach the basic and clinical sciences in a new and improved way. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Many of the faculty are really, really old. It seems as maybe they moved to Phoenix to retire and teaching is something they're doing to make an extra buck. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Try not to rent a car if possible. Taxes out of Sky Harbor for renting a car is literally 38%. A "$37/day" two day rental was over $120. Some of the hotels have a shuttle. Stay there and don't bother renting a car..." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nice campus. Excellent curriculum plan. If I go there, the military will be awfully tempting. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Very good experience. Had great time talking with people during interview and everyone was very nice. This was probably one of the best interview experiences." More from this Member | Report Response

"very nice school with new equipments. 18 people were interviewed that day by three people. the interviewers were accompanied by a student as well. the student also asks a couple of questions" More from this Member | Report Response

"I would love to go, the school really impressed." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I enjoyed the interview and really liked the campus, location, students and the dean. The location somewhat lacked some culture unless you really like mexican food everyday but other then that it was a great school." More from this Member | Report Response

"This seems like a promising school, but I felt that once I probed into their clinical curriculum (or lack thereof) I felt I was conducting an interview instead of being given one. They were quite defensive about their lack of a clinic." More from this Member | Report Response

"a lot of walking around, wear comfortable shoes" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school, but be prepared for bumps along the way since it is a new school. It is interesting that some classes are integrated with DO and Optometry students to encourage cross-discipline perspective and cooperation." More from this Member | Report Response

"I like the school very much and am very happy that i am on board...." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview is very laid back. There are about 15-20 people there and you are split into two groups. One groups interviews (individually) while the other has a financial aid seminar. The you have lunch and a tour. I stayed at the Comfort Suites which is about 5 minutes away. they had a shuttle to and from Midwestern that dropped you off at the admissions office and it was free. The shuttle left around 7:00 so you make in with plenty of time. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Midwestern expects to interview 500 people and out of that 500, there are only 114 seats, so the statistics of getting in aren't the best. If you get an interview there, try to be yourself and have a good time!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is very new with a very nice simulation lab. The faculty are experienced while they are also willing to adjust the curriculum for the students's success. The school is great overall. The part I is to be taken after the first year. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The atmospere amongst the current students was outstanding. Knowing that future students have open acces to their instructors is key to success in a rigorous dental program. Not being made to feel like an outsider even though I was only there for the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Don't stress out when preparing for this interview. They are more concerned with getting to know YOU, and less concerned with eliciting a stress response. Just know answers to the basic questions and you should be ok." More from this Member | Report Response

"A great school, set up to be a lot like UOP. they want to treat you like a dentist from day one. they want you to succeed." More from this Member | Report Response

"MWU is a good health profession school, so I strongly believe that its dental program will be excellent. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Arizona was nice the interview was a waste " More from this Member | Report Response

"We were there most of the day. Started at 7:45am and went till 2pm. They really did a good job of going over information that will help us make an educated decision about what school to attend. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Friendly faculty & staff. They split us up into groups and half went on the tour while the other half were further divided and interviewed or wrote their essay. Then the two big groups switched. After everyone interviewed we went to lunch and had the financial aid presentation. They offered lots of snacks, beverages & bathroom opportunities throughout the day. Very enjoyable." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nice presentation by Dr. Simmonsen, Wrote an essay, Interviewed with 2 very nice faculty members, toured the campus, ate lunch, financial aid presentation." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview was pretty normal. 2 people asking me questions. There was a few questions that I feel were to put the pressure on the student and see how the student reacts and how well rounded they are. There was also an essay question that was really easy to do." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was laid back. The Dean was very personable, and he seemed personally interested in each of the twelve candidates who were there. There was a single interview for each candidate, where you were placed in a room with two faculty, who asked questions from a standardized list. There was a tour. If the dental clinic ends up as nice as their medical clinic, it'll be beautiful. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Great interview, not so great everything else." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really liked the school (definitely my first choice). There's really nothing to worry about. The interview was pretty laid back & kinda fun. Just read your secondary and AADSAS application... be genuine, confident, sincere, and at ease. A bit on the expensive side. They interview around 400 people for 100 seats (the class size should increase as time goes on). The first 60 seats are given before Dec. 1, and the remaining 40 after that."
