What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The meeting with the Dean of Students was as a group. She goes around the table peppering each applicant with questions to get to know you, so it is sort of like a mini interview -- except the Dean does not have a vote at the adcom meeting. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day was very relaxed. The admissions office has a comfortable waiting area with complimentary water and snacks. They give you a folder full of information about the school. I was interviewed by an orthopaedic surgeon and an 4th year student. Both interviewers were extremely nice and conversational. After the interviews we took a tour, lead by two M2s, of the PBL labs and lecture halls. Lunch was provided (sandwich, chips, cookie, drink). Then we met with the dean. The last thing on the agenda was stopping by the financial aid office to meet the advisor. She detailed how much it cost to attend Mizzou and what financial aid options are available. From start to finish the interview ''day'' took 3 1/2 hours. " Report Response
