"The school was great. People were wonderful and anxious to meet you and tell you about their school. New OMM lab and study rooms going up by next year?? The deep rooted history that beams from the University opens many doors for your future. Andy, she is a wonderful administrator. Grads get great residencies (all around the U.S.) Housing costs...Average home=$80,000 dollars. DAMN!!! Very safe and friendly place to live. Seeing my boy Joel again...write me boy!! " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The school is a little run down. They need to re-vamp the hospital as well as the lecture rooms/anatomy/micro lab etc. The schools is great, but it has a 70's feel to it. Spiff if up a little and you have a sweet place to live, work, and go to school. You will most likely need to leave Kirksville to do your rotations (hard for me, I am married with child). Three hours from any major city/airport. (good and bad). Hangin at the Walmart-YEEEEEEHAAAAAWWWW! " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The whole town of Kirksville is wrapped around the University. It is great. There are also a large number of law offices. doctor + lawyer =pissed off doctors. ;)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, it was great. The population of Kirksville ranges from 18,000-25,000 people (depending on the time of year and who you ask). Not too small?? However it is a long drive from any larger city or major airport. The school itself is trying to improve, the facilities are a little run down but I feel they are trying to make improvements. The faculty was fantastic. My interviewers were great and they made me feel welcome and treated me as if they really wanted me as a student and individual. They are really concerned about spouses and children. They go out of their way to make them also feel welcome. The lecture halls need some padded seats (thats a long day, and my butt is sore just thinking about it =() I could definately see my self attending Kirksville, we will see. I was accepted yesterday and will have to give it some strong consideration. Rotations are scarce in Kirksville, so you will probably be leaving after 2 years. Check it out, it is the Mecca of Osteopathic medicine, the pilgrimage will be worth the drive and time. Good luck. " Report Response
