    I got in! I got a phone call! I haven't gotten an official e-mail though. Have you? Should I email them? I want to know what to do now. (deposit-wise and what not) Thank you.

    Pretty sure they don't send an official email. It's all in the Midwestern portal. Go to that website where you scheduled your interview date and it should have the info on the deposit, matriculation agreement, etc etc.

    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. :thumbup:

    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.

    I wanted to know, do students at MWU-IL take their boards after their first year (like how MWU-AZ does)?

    Also, how is the student/teacher ratio in clinics 3rd and 4th years?

    Thanks!

    I'm interviewing at Midwestern-IL next week. Can anyone please provide me with the specifics of the interview process (how many people interview you, types of questions, etc.)? I looked on interview feedback and there are only a few responses. Thank you very much!

    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:
    *8 rooms
    *8 questions
    *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!

    For future or more Q&A, please visit my blog at http://jessburself.tumblr.com and click the "ASK" button on the right.

    ...and while you're there, feel free to check it out. There is ALOT of information on the happenings at CDMI!

    Hope to hear from you, soon!
