What impressed you negatively?

"The cafeteria is a small and unorganized. (If you like fast food, this is the palce). As, was the whole day of my visit. The whole tour seemed to be a sales pitch. Everyone was fake nice. The area surrouding the school was unsafe, infact there was a shooting a fews before my tour. People in the community seems to dislike the DO school, and are not very postive when you say you are a student there. According to my sister's roommate who attends KCUMB. The KCUMB students are very open off campus, if you ask them questions. They told me they know to keep quiet about their concerns because the faculty don't like to hear problems." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"A fake friendliness exists. They seem like salespersons. I have been told if you are invited for an interview you are almost in. In fact, they measure everyone for a white coat when you are there. Once a student you are treated like a number, and the school is a lot less friendly according to the students I talked with." Report Response
