What impressed you positively?

"The attitude of the administration, basic ambiance of the school. After my interview, my interviewed left to talk to a student that was depressed and not doing well-- I don't think that at most schools they would have noticed & definitely wouldn't have had a dean of students invested enough to talk to the student himself. Beyond having a really serious (but non-competative) outlook on academics, the students seem happy to be there. I was impressed by their COMLEX&USMLE pass rates. They're not so much into the newer trend towards PBL and system based approaches to the basic sciences. I guess it depends on how you learn best, but I really loved their straight forward lecture/lab approach to teaching. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The town. I suppose Kirksville is good for studying bc there isn't much to get into but the town is very isolated and hard to get to. Its also mostly caucasian (lots of Mormons)-- may be a bit of a culture shock for ppl used to a different mix of ppl. Only two years are required in Kville which makes the town not so bad" Report Response

"--" Report Response
