How did you prepare for the interview?

"I read over the school's interview website, reviewed questions on SDN, and my AACOMAS application. It was a relaxing process; don't take the interview like a test. You do best when you have a clear head and aren't thinking people are out to get you." Report Response

I enjoyed the financial aid presentation very much because it was very informative and the financial aid officer expressed genuine interest in helping students out." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Watch out for an immediate change in gradation when you are walking through the cafeteria. The floor rises like a mini-step, 2-3 inches high. I almost went SPLAT when I tripped over the "step" and I swear the admissions guide purposefully distracted me so that I would trip (too bad that he didn't know that I had ninja skills to save myself with). :D" Report Response

"Calling cabs are the only way to get around Kirksville if you do not have a car. The closest thing to public transportation is a shuttle that runs north-south of the town, but it's never guaranteed to be operating in the winter." Report Response
