What impressed you positively?

"In general the campus is way prettier than I thought. It was a sunny day with temps in the mid 50's in KC after a whole week of rain so I lucked out. But the overall campus has great facilities. I like the dress code, which is scrubs or professional dress, so 99% of students are wearing scrubs. The thing that impressed me the most was the curriculum and testing process. 6 week sections (essentially one subject in six weeks). With two tests (mid term and final) during the six weeks. Each section is systems of the body but incorporates all basic science in a more clinically oriented presentation." Report Response

"They have a brand new auditorium but since they are going to be adding a library and student center to it we were unable to see it." Report Response

"how pretty the campus actually was." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I thought the campus was great students were happy. The campus is very committed to everyone doing well, passing boards, and getting into their residency of choice. For people that complain about the neighborhood are probably from small towns, because my undergrad visits to Uchicago and Columbia were in way worse areas and I would have never of worried about safety if I had gone to one of those schools, so the same applies to KCUMB" Report Response
