"I asked faculty at my college for the type of questions I would be asked and had a mock interview with them. I also made sure I knew a lot about the program at Midwestern University." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"I was very pleased with the outstanding facilities, the quality of pre-clinical education, and especially the friendliness and helpful spirit I felt on campus and while speaking with students and faculty. The area all around the campus is very nice and safe. They are building a brand new clinic to match their campus. It looks like it will be great!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The heat! It is horribly hot in Arizona. Good thing there is air conditioning everywhere you go." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How friendly everyone is there. I was quite a bit more nervous about the interview than I should have been. What I mean is... even during the interview itself, everything was very pleasant and friendly instead of attacking (I've heard horror stories about interviews at other schools). I never felt like they were attacking me even when they were asking for clarification on items in my application. They smiled a lot and even made some jokes. This helped everything to seem very low stress." Report Response
