"The school is well established and has a large number of facilities. They go by the moto that you are your first patient. Consequently, they have wellness days (days off) scheduled throughout the year, nice exercise programs and the like. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Dr. Rhoades was a horrible interviewer. He seemed to be always looking for something, but never came outright and said what it was. I've talked to other people that have interviewed with him and they all say that even though you feel like you did poorly with his interview, you'll probably still get into the school. (I did, and so did the other people I talked to)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing really. Kirksville is small town, so its not for everyone. But they seem to have a good community feel there." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Two one hour interviews and one 15 minute interview. Grueling. One interview is with a DO. That was great. The other with a science faculty- everyone that I interviewed with said that was the hard one. The 15 minute interview is quick and more relaxed, all the questions asked there had already been asked of me in the previous interviews. I was worn out by the end of the day. I felt like I had been there so long that they would give me an acceptance/rejection before I left. They got back to me really quick. I interviewed on a Monday and they called me back on Tuesday."
