"The faculty at ARCOM genuinely care about your success. They all have their own unique teaching style, but at the end of the day, they come together to create fair exams.

Any other information you want to share?

"If you can apply to schools that well established and located in better environment ,even if you have to stay behind for couple of years; DO IT. Do not apply to schools like Arkansas College of Osteopathic Medicine." | Report Response

"Although a new school, I really believe you will be hard pressed to find a better DO school. Their boards pass rates are top notch. Additionally, although Arkansas probably isn't the most desirable place to live for people in their 20s, it's actually been a good experience. I've done activities I thought I never would before. If you're into hiking or other outdoorsy activities, this is the state for you." | Report Response

"We haven't graduated a class yet (as of 2019)." | Report Response
