    I have an interview here next week and I'm wondering if someone who's already interviewed can give me an idea of what the schedule is for the day?

    Thanks for any help!! :)

    I think making a decision to save $100,000 or more hardly qualifies someone as “only caring about the money”. “Only caring about the money” would, for example, be like choosing school (x) over school (z) simply because school (x) offers free dental loupes while otherwise having the same net cost as school (z).

    But yes, I do agree if MWU is a huge overwhelming favorite and you don’t like UF, by all means, go to MWU.

    You are reinterpreting my 2 cents based on what you think the language I used literally means. What I meant by “caring about the money” was in an attempt to provide a clear contrast to the OP when choosing between frugality and practically vs happiness and adventure.

    So again, if the OP only cares about the money, then they should go to the cheapest school, but if money is not the most important variable then they should go to the school in which they will be the most content for the next four years.

    Your day will probably consist of the following:

    - A welcome/intro at the academic facility session for 30 min
    - Transportation to clinic
    - Dean's presentation and tour
    - Transportation back to campus
    - Sim lab presentation and tour
    - Financial aid session
    - Lunch with dental students (they will interview you later as well!)
    - Student panel
    - Interviews
    • You will be assigned to one of the two interview panels (2 faculty members, 1 student)
    • You wait in the waiting room with the rest of the interviewees until your assigned time
    • Finish interview, go home!
    The whole day will run from 8:00 am until you're done with your interview (1:40 pm - 4:00 pm) depending on your assigned time. So the actual interview is about 30 minutes and 10 minutes for them to get ready for the next person.

    I'm sure they will find a safe spot for your luggage.

    Just wanted to let those on the waitlist know I emailed the university that I will be declining my acceptance. I was accepted to IU, which is instate for me. Good luck to all those waitlisted. I was so impressed with Midwestern, broke my heart to decline!

    They will be sending you something in the mail notifying you if you’re on the waitlist. If you want to know now, you can email admissions. They replied to me pretty quickly :)

    They have a closet for luggage in the admissions office. After your interview, you'll have to walk back to the admissions building. You'll want to enter through the right side (facing from the street) of the admissions building, and someone will open the door for you since ID's are needed to enter buildings.

    Hey guys, so a questions about the Anatomy prereq. I'm currently taking A&P I at a community college. It has both a lecture and lab component and is 4 units. Does anyone know if it'll fulfill the Anatomy prereq or do I need to take A&P II as well?

    "The Anatomy and Physiology requirements may also be fulfilled by taking Anatomy and Physiology I and Anatomy and Physiology II, as some universities offer combined courses"

    If you are taking them combined together you have to take both according to their site.

    I emailed admissions, and they said A&P I alone will fulfill the Anatomy prereq. I did see that on the site, so I guess the interpretation is:
    If one needs to satisfy both the Anatomy prereq and the Physiology prereq, A&P I and II must both be taken.
    If one needs to satisfy the Anatomy prereq, A&P I is sufficient.
    If one needs to satisfy the Physiology prereq, A&P I is sufficient.

    Thanks for your reply! Just wanted to double check and also have this recorded for others in the future :)
