Student & Graduate Reviews

4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

The program is very close and tight-knit. The faculty make you feel as though you are part of a family and will help you out with anything you need. The workload is not too heavy, and professors still want you to have a social life. However, I feel as though I am learning from the best.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2017

I love Midwestern University. Though it is an incredibly rigorous Physician Assistant program, the faculty are all there to help you in any way that they can. It is also a very expensive graduate school, but their facilities are excellent and campus is very safe and secure.
3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

This is an excellent stepping stone for students who have to reapply to professional programs.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2019

Excellent school in a suburb of a large city with knowledgeable, caring instructors. Downers Grove is fairly safe and the campus itself has high security measures. Everything you need outside of school is possible and the school itself has a plethora of information in its library.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2019

Program has a lot to offer. You will be so busy that you won't have time to notice the things around campus that aren't top notch. The school prepares you how to be a thorough, intuitive osteopathic physician! I have support from faculty and it's a high end learning environment.

3.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2020

They have small class sizes so that the professor - student relationship is more personal.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros would be that I know I am getting a good education and that I will be more likely to get a job after graduation because of my experience at Midwestern. Con would be that the class size is large, therefore making it more difficult to get 1:1 help from professors.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: Great quality education, fantastic teachers and staff, great network of alumni. I like that it is a small university as well to get more time with teachers. Cons: Price
1.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2018
