What impressed you positively?

"I was very impressed with the students. Our tour guides were 2nd year pod students. They had a great sense of humor and were genuinely happy about their experiences and education at Midwestern. The facilities were new and very nice, as well as the location in relation to Phoenix." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I kind of feel that the school is in a bubble. The school has everything at your fingertips, and I am not certain what other establishments are around the area. I did not have the opportunity to visit a lot of the area around the school, so I have no idea what else surrounds the school." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"1. AZPOD is accredited now 2. Not to be so nervous initially 3. To pack shorts" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, I was thoroughly impressed with what this school has to offer. This interview is actually my first in a series of five other interviews. I felt that the atmosphere was laidback. It felt like one interviewer tried to play the bad cop role; however, all the interviewers seemed to be engaged in the entire interview. As the interview progressed, things seemed to be less tense for me and more natural. I felt a lot more at ease, and I think the interviewers warmed up a bit. It was really a positive experience with the 2nd year medical students who really love the school. They were funny; kept things very light and willing to answer questions. From what the 2nd years said, atmosphere wise, students are very driven. (fyi, there seem to be quite a few married students/engaged, nothing wrong with that, just wanted to give a head's up) Other than that, the clinic on-campus is very nice and will continue to grow and become a more integral part of the overall pod program. There are plenty of opportunities and clinical experiences in the greater Phoenix area that will prepare students." Report Response
