Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros- Midwestern University offers diversity within students which makes me feel right at home. They are not a huge campus, which makes it easier to contact faculty and schedule meeting times. Faculty is always available to help students in a variety of ways, from email to sit-down meetings. The campus is beautiful and in a safe area. The quality of education is very high and I would recommend attending Midwestern University to any student. Cons- Since Midwestern is a private school, it is expensive to attend. It is located in a suburb area, so the cost of living is expensive as well. But overall, I am very happy with my decision to attend Midwestern for pharmacy school.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: The graduate program for Physical Therapy at Midwestern provides a solid foundation for Physical Therapy students. There are wonderful faculty who provide attention and support to the students. The clinical experiences available are numerous and of wide variety. Cons: The program tuition is considerably high when compared to other non-private institutions. With the cost of graduate school continuing to rise but the availability of fair student loans with low interest rates declining, it is difficult to afford school.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

At Midwestern, the faculty and staff are always available to help and they really care about us and want us to succeed. They are all great assets to the program and have consistently made this difficult task of being in graduate school one that is challenging but intriguing. The biggest con is the price of tuition, although that is true wherever you go. I can honestly say that Midwestern is allowing me to fully take advantage of every opportunity and resource that comes to me and is molding me into the type of Physical Therapist I want to be.

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

The Occupational Therapy program at Midwestern University is taught by competent and helpful professors, who have personal ties to the development of the Model of Human Occupation, a predominant therapy model. I have greatly enjoyed my time there so far, and appreciate the way Midwestern has supported me. It however, is the most expensive program in Illinois, and requires a great deal of sacrifice to participate in it. The program is challenging, but worthwhile. It is stressful, but interesting. Overall, Midwestern is a quality school that puts out quality programs. Though the price tag is high, it is well worth it.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of the program entail multiple graduate school programs studying within one environment and being able to freely and openly interact with one another along with being able to interact with faculty. The cons are that the cost of tuition and living is very expensive.
