Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2019

Only things midwestern university gave me was diabetes and an ulcer from sitting to study the vast material they expect you to know. They demand so much and in the end, its all pointless. 90% of material they teach will not be used in profession, they need to focus on relavant material . Also it's way overpriced school for the torture they put you through. I regret picking this school.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

I attended the MBS (2 year) program between 2014-2016. Pros: Amazing campus, labs, and equipment and the faculty are truly outstanding!!! I learned so much from the variety of courses and electives, some of which were combined with students from other Health Sciences programs. Cons: About 1/3 of the students in the program ended up dropping out during the first year. The program was very difficult and therefore not for everyone. About half of the remaining students actually got into the medical/dental programs they desired. If you plan on simply pursuing a career in the pharmaceutical industry, I would definitely not recommend this program. Having a Masters degree does not give you any sort of edge when it comes to landing a job in the lab (speaking from experience). You will be in the same position, and making the same amount of money as someone who only has a Bachelor's, except you will be ~$70k more in debt.

Midwestern University has a prestigious reputation for good reason. The campus is stunning, the faculty is extremely friendly, and the current students are very happy. The coursework is challenging, but you are provided with an abundant amount of resources. The location in the West suburbs of Chicago allows for an ample amount of exploration and social activities with classmates. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants to get the most out of their academic career.

Graduation Year: 2016

It is up to you to succeed and make college worth the time and money. If you are active on campus and meet with your professors outside of class, you'll make more of the connections you need to find work in your field or recommendations for future academic applications.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2012

Midwestern offered great opportunities for individualized education; could request rotations, classes that you are interested in specifically. They offer an anatomy lab that isn't available in all health science programs.

Prepared me very well to pass my certification boards as well as to work in the profession. The program was expensive, but overall, a good investment.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2006

Graduate school focusing on health sciences including Physician Assistant Studies, Physical Therapy, Doctorate of Osteopathic Medicine, and Pharmacology allows for collaboration between specialties and fosters learning. Small, intimate campus in a safe neighborhood close to Chicago. Excellent rotation opportunities.

It is small health sciences college. The classes are small an the professors really care about the students an really help them succeed. It's pretty expensive but the networking after you graduate is pretty valuable.
