Students and staff are very proud of their history. Great wellness program for students and their family. CHEAP housing and cost of living." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"School is in the middle of nowhere!!! Feels like stepping back in time. Hour and a half to the mall (and most everything else for that matter). Not good for someone from urban or suburban area, you'll go nuts. Also, no onsite clinical time. You must travel for your last two years, possibly to OH, TX, MI or east coast." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How truly isolated the school is in the middle of MO." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Very easy interview with no prepared questions at all. Very conversational, just talking and getting to know me. All discussions were about my life, school and experiences. There were no real questions, mostly talking. After about an hour of chit-chat and joking, one interviewer even said "Well I guess I owe it to you to ask you at least one question, seeing as how you traveled so far to get here." Both interviewers were very laid back and nice. We honestly just sat at the table, drank coffee and talked. I can't imagine a better interview." Report Response
