"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."

"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."
