"Arrived early, and met the other candidates. We were given packets with all the information we needed about the day and Midwestern. Went to the Financial Aid office for a brief presentation.

Afterward we went on a tour of the campus and facilities. Ate lunch with the med students, and bid the other candidates adieu." Report Response
