What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are very nice. They are constructing a new clinical research center, which will open in April, 2004 (or around that date). The students also impressed me. They are very positive and happy with their school. Students from last year had a 97% pass rate on COMLEX part I. The curriculum is sweet. They teach you in sections. For instance, the second section of your first year is the musculoskeletal section. In this section you will learn anatomy, physiology, pathology, etc. associated with this system. The impression I got is that students are better prepared for their clinical rotations, because of this method of teaching. An overall positive feeling at this school." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing really. I know some have been concerned (on this website) about the school being in downtown Kansas City, MO. I was impressed that students do service within the local neighborhood. For instance, some of the students we met were going to do a service project the next day. That really says something about the school, and the students there. I asked several people about safety. They replied that they've never felt threatened." Report Response
