Congrats to everyone ahead of time! Good news from this school would make me faint.
Yup. I've run a bunch of excel spreadsheets looking at cost and it's a little scary. But if you work hard your first couple years out and put everything towards paying it off, it's not impossible. I think it's worth it in the end to have a career.
Also, the cost is going to be around the same as many of the private schools like Tufts, NYU, Boston, USC, Midwestern-AZ, etc so it's not we're the only ones looking at the cost of dental school.
For those of you who are interested, I am a member of the inaugural class and would definitely be willing to answer any questions you may have concerning CDMI.
Congratulations to you and welcome to the family of MWU!
Best wishes to all of you on your journey,
P.S. If you have time, feel free to check out my stu-DENT diary (a D1s perspective) at http://jessburself.tumblr.com
During our interview/tour at MWU-AZ, the dean told us at IL they do it "Canadian" style, where they post a question on a wall/door, you read it and then you think about how to answer it, then during the interview you just discuss this one question. (I think it was just one... could be remembering wrong).

Hello all! The interview style at Midwestern University CDMI is very unique:
*2 minute reading + 8 minute answering=10 minutes/room
Some traditional questions, many critical thinking questions.
Just be yourself and you will be fine.
As far as boards are concerned, we (the inaugural class of 2015) are scheduled to take them sometime in the late spring of 2013 before the start of 3rd year (Summer 2013). The student:faculty ratio right now in pre-clinical sim laboratory is 6:1 <---one of the best in the country!
Hope this helps!
