What are your general comments?

"I was very impressed with the school's facilities, COMLEX board pass rates, and history of ranking in top 25 for US News primary care medical schools several times since 2001. Some applicants have disliked the area (which I happen to greatly enjoy), the consensus from the student body was that it provides plenty of time to study and if they want to they find things to do or head into St. Louis or Columbia which aren't to far away. The anatomy lab is great, they have a 4:1 student to cadaver ratio which is very good. Most importantly I felt that the student body and faculty were warm and friendly and I could see myself enjoying the school environment. The only thing bad was how incredibly long the interview was, 8 hours was a bit too much. The Still Well program is great, your first week of school they give you physical tests, measure your body fat% and customize a health program for you. I'm excited to go here." Report Response
