I just put down my deposit today, so we are officially going there! My wife and I also visited the area this past weekend, and we love the area. The school is incredible, looking forward to meeting everyone this fall!

Great news! I'm glad things worked out the way you'd hoped! It was great meeting you and your wife last week, let us know if there's anything we can do for you. Let me know when you move down, so we can help you move in.

Congrats again!
Thanks! You guys are great, we really appreciated meeting you and hearing your opinions.

I'm glad you guys had as good of a time as we did. I'm looking forward to meeting you guys too! Did you get in contact with my friend?

Did everyone get the email to do a background check?
Yeah, it's an extra $150, but we've got to do it.

We actually didn't get a chance to meet him, but I didn't call or text him because we were so busy over the weekend.

And do you know for sure about this background check thing? The email I got sounded pretty phishy.

I've gotten 2 emails from them, one on Dec 2 and a reminder today. At a couple of my interviews they talked about a background check, so I've been expecting this. Here's the first email:

I just wanted to make sure it wasn't from a school where I was declining a seat.

Due Jan. 1st.
I hope that date is certain because the wait is really getting to me on this one. I've been anxious because i noticed on predents that the last individual to get accepted (Dec 16th) interviewed on the Dec 9th.

I interviewed Dec 14 and I loved everything about the interview day.:love:
Hope I am a part of the class of 2015.

In your login thing on the midwestern website, does it say anything for you about your status? I'm kind of confused on how we find about about our status..

Ya know, I REALLY wanted to go to MWU, but the cost of UW is just too good to pass. Plus, I LOVE Seattle. I was really close to still going to MWU due to the weather, lifestyle, and friends in Phoenix. It really was a hard decision though.
Lmaozedong1: can i ask you were those the only 2 reasons you chose UW over MWU? I am going to do the military thing, and my family is from Washington, but I am NOT a big fan of Seattle, it's too expensive, too rainy, and just not my thing. I keep changing my mind on a daily/hourly basis! MWU is such a new school, living is cheap, AND they have always been friendly and to me, which i can't say has always been the case at UW.

What are some other reasons why I should accept UW vs. Midwestern?

You need to pick where you feel like you'll be the happiest. Since debt isn't an issue, go to the school and curriculum that you enjoy the most. I had the same feeling at MWU, how they are always so nice and welcoming. I personally would prefer Phoenix as far as living and weather, but Seattle and UW certainly have appeal. Anyway, go where you feel like you'll be the happiest. You may also consider going where you might like to end up working because you can get used to the area and start networking with others.

Very good point. Thank you! I guess the prestige of UW, and the small class size made me feel really lucky to be able to get in. However after the newness wears off, I think my happiness throughout school is probably more important.:idea:

Hey everyone, I have a few questions about housing. Does anyone know where the bad areas of town are in Peoria? Are there areas to stay away from? I am looking at renting a house, and would like some input. Thank you! :D

My wife and I are buying a house and our offer just got accepted. Right around the dental school and north of the 101 are nicer areas, as well as most of surprise. Stay away from El Mirage and the further south (and maybe east, I'm not sure) you go inside the 101 loop, the more sketchy it gets.

Good luck! I hope you find something!

Did anyone get address verification on MWU website? I just checked their website, and got address verification. Is this mean something? I'm still waiting from them, maybe they just need to check address information to send rejection letter :(

At the interview they said they took around 50% of the wait list last year. I doubt that's the case this year, I've seen people here state there are ~170 people on the list? That's a huge amount. Maybe we'll start seeing wait list calls once they finish interviews and April rolls around. Good luck!

50-100 is great news! Anyone knows how full the class is? I am hoping for a lot of multiple deposits.

This is NOT true. I just called Midwestern to confirm this, and the lady said there are not conducting any more interviews, and the waitlist has gone UP - upwards of 200-250 people. She also said all the seats for the class have been given out, and now they are waiting to see how many deposits they receive. Every time someone turns down their offer, they will review the list of alternates, and some lucky waitlister will get a call.
