"The admsn staff warmth, interviewing atmosphere, campus. I have read complaints (on this site) about the anatomy lab being gross. It wasn't. The building was fine and so was the lab. The smell was not overwhelming. It did not smell compared to my comparative vert. anatomy class during undergrad. Free tutoring and KPLAN prep material for boards. All of the lectures are recored, so if something comes up you can listen to the tape and update your notes. They bring the family into the picture. They realize your success is also dependent on how satisfied you are in your whole life...kindof like the osteop. phil. in medicine." More from this Member | Report Response

"How nice and accomodating everyone was. The quality (and repuation) of the education you get there. Opportunity to leave Kirksville after the first 2 years. Residency placements (very very good). Student gym facilities (sauna, whirlpool, full gym, yoga, pool access--spouses and significant others get usage for free. awesome!). Oh yeah, also, they have a sim-man you can practice on which is very advanced--his pupils dialate, he can talk, you can intubate him--good practice!" More from this Member | Report Response

The facilities were not the most glamorous, though they weren't half-bad either. The cafeteria is also fairly large, and there is an extensive collection of osteopathic artifacts as well. Many of the students seemed very cheerful, at least from what was gathered in the anatomy laboratory. The school also makes an effort to keep its students happy by accomodating their needs or requests, and takes an active role in the wellness program to balance the students' academic and social lives. Many of the graduates are also matched into top residency programs across the country as well." More from this Member | Report Response

"The spirit of a holistic approach to learning and student life was definitely a plus. I really like how they care not only about the academic success of their students, but also their development as people and caring physicians. Academics is top notch -- especially anatomy. They pay for the prep course for the boards! Their facilities are great, their classrooms are fairly large, the Dean of Student Affairs was really nice.

The students really seemed to like it there, and the staff does seem to care about the success of the students. Most of all, there are great residencies available to students and they do very well on the boards.

I met a lot of KCOM students the night before and not only did they offer a lot of advice and information about the school, but they went out of their way to say hi to me when they saw me around campus on the tour. Also, everyone is very laid back there. They are not trying to criticize you, they just want to see if you are a good fit for KCOM. Lunch with the students and the white coat fitting were also fun."

One of the top anatomy programs in the country. One cadaver per 4 students. Some schools have up to 8 students, not good. Students are well respected in the community, by faculty, and by the admissions department. The town of Kirksville is on the small side and isolated, but there's everything you need here. No commute, students seemed to get along great, free gym and workout sessions, a lot of clubs, and organizations for spouses. If you need more, check your reasons for attending med school."

The admissions staff demonstrated a laid back professional style, indicating that they were proficient at their jobs, and happy to be doing it. The med students were forthright, and honest, and objective. They provided and objective yet positive view of life in school as well as life in a small town in Missouri."

If you are married and/or have kids, you will be so impressed with the level of family dedication these people show you. Even have a whole other set of activities planned for spouses while you interview. The town is incredibly cozy, and if you are looking to get away from distractions and really study medicine, KCOM is for you. If you want to party alot, and hang out at Starbucks, better pass and go find some yuppie elitist metro school instead. The day was choreographed almost seamlessly, without dead space. They made you feel as if you were already accepted, and merely covering formalities. One word - AWESOME!" More from this Member | Report Response

"1. Really great facilities (academic and athletic). A hot spa, excellent gym, tennis courts, squash and the works. Even the study rooms are well equipped with new technological advances . 2. They were genuinely interested in getting to know ME! You have 3 separate interviews (2 of them are "important"), and all three are very engaging. The first was from a professor who showed me the form that he and the D.O. after him would fill out shortly after each interview. At the bottom, it said, "Do you recommend this candidate for admission? Yes or No"!!! 3. They are really interested in making sure that you accomplish YOUR goals, not just theirs. 4. The students are really great and pretty COOL. I didn't even ask or make plans for it, but the guy I stayed with came to pick me up at the tiny Kirksville Airport after I told him that my flight was delayed for about an hour. 5. The admissions staff honestly try to impress you, too, and they do a great job. KCOM is the #1 D.O. school (likely because it was the founding school). Average MCAT is 27 and average gpa is a little over 3.4, but they really pick students that they like - not really a superficial process at all. " More from this Member | Report Response

After my interview, my interviewed left to talk to a student that was depressed and not doing well-- I don't think that at most schools they would have noticed & definitely wouldn't have had a dean of students invested enough to talk to the student himself. Beyond having a really serious (but non-competative) outlook on academics, the students seem happy to be there. I was impressed by their COMLEX&USMLE pass rates. They're not so much into the newer trend towards PBL and system based approaches to the basic sciences. I guess it depends on how you learn best, but I really loved their straight forward lecture/lab approach to teaching. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing negatively impressed me. I am from West Texas, but have lived in Oklahoma, New Jersey, Kansas, New York, and deployed to Kuwait and Iraq over the last 10 years; thus, I have a decidedly open mind toward many things including places to live. The size of the town did not negatively affect me as it seems to affect so many others. The small size of the town is a great quality because your distractions are limited so that you can focus on the task at hand. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It isn't a deciding factor, but I think it might take a little time to adjust to the small-town atmosphere of Kirksville. This is to be expected, since I come from a city where there's constant activity and diversity. I may not have gotten a complete view of Kirksville because I didn't have a car, and therefore couldn't really explore the area while I was there." More from this Member | Report Response

"The near-complete lack of any research being conducted there. It seems to be part of their long-range plans for the school, but currently isn't much of a priority at all. The campus fitness center was considerably smaller than it was described, but adequate nonetheless. Throughout the day there were several mentions of how many students were married with families and made you wonder if single students would fit in - turns out only 30% are married, so it's not as exclusionary as it seemed. Also, I could have done without an hour-long financial aid presentation. While helpful, it is not something I'm very interested in unless I am accepted. If accepted, you only have 2 weeks to decide if you will attend and make a $1000 NON-refundable deposit. Obviously, you could forfeit the $1000 later to go somewhere else though."

"Kirksville is not a happening place. It has TOPS 20,000 people living there, including students from the nearby state university. While that may not seem small to most people, I was alarmed to find that students' idea of a fun time was, get this, GOING TO WAL-MART TO SHOP. I was told this by many students whom I asked what there idea of fun was around there. I think Kirksville would be a great school for those who are married and want to raise a family in a safe and inexpensive environment, or those who are single and focused only on studying. Kirksville has ZERO distractions so it would be easy to study all day and get decent grades. Also, the facilities are somewhat detatched, with the microbiology and anatomy labs in an older building about 2 blocks from the main campus. Not a huge deal, but kind of an annoyance."

Oh yeah, also, they tell you about your acceptance very quickly which is a good thing, but you are required to pay a $1,000 deposite within 2 weeks of your acceptance, then another $500 dollars in a months and another $500 in two months.

"Very rigorous academic program compared to other schools. " More from this Member | Report Response

"No mall in town. Big cities are faaaaaaaaaaaar!! The school building seems to be very old. " More from this Member | Report Response

"A number of things negatively impressed me. The curriculum is traditionally divided into the basic sciences and clinical sciences (2+2), with little emphasis on the use of case-based or PBL learning. There is no systems-based integration, and the academic year is based on a quarter system with a minimal amount of vacation time. There is also a fairly limited amount of early clinical experience, besides the Complete DOctor course. The simulated patient assessment laboratories do not use professionally trained actors, but rather drama students from the local university. Patient simulators (robotic machines) have recently been purchased, but are not yet integrated into the curriculum to the effect that they have any significant impact. The second year students seemed to be disconnected from the first year students and unhappy, or at least this was the impression I received from the tour guides; the student ambassadors at the lunch were extremely kind and friendly, however. The anatomy and OMM laboratories are not well-equipped with viewing screens, but do meet basic needs. There is an extreme emphasis on laboratory skills for microbiology, immunology, histology, etc; very reminiscent of tedious undergraduate work. Some professors choose to incorporate pop quizzes into their courses as well. The school continues to assess students throughout a number of course examinations and end of year examinations; it seems very strict in that sense. The administrative representates were extremely nice, but the interviewers (faculty) were not this way at all. The school provides a transcript that is sent out to residency directors along with something called a LeaderScript, another type of transcript documenting the leadership activities you have completed at the school. Generally, this would probably tend not to work in your favor because you cannot remove the LeaderScript from the transcript - it is not an optional type of documentation. This is not the end of the list, but as far as I can remember, these were some of the main points." More from this Member | Report Response

"The length of the school year is extremely long with very few breaks compared to other institutions, and the academic day is fairly long as well. KCOM's facilities and campus are older. Much of the housing in Kirksville tends to be a bit older as well. KCOM's rotations are heavily weighted towards places far away from the midwest (the northeast (NY/PA/OH/FL/UT/CO)."

"I'm not a big fan of rural areas in general, and Kirksville is about as rural as you can get and still have room to put a medical college. Instead of one or two students giving us a tour, we had a bunch of people take us to one spot, talk about it, and return us to admissions until the next person picked us up again. The micro/histology lab and the OMM lab are very old. The idea of a 2 week rural preceptorship at the end of year one kind of freaks me out...preceptorship yes, rural not so much.

"Kirskville is a small town. It's population is about 17000 and is surrounded by large farms. This puts it at least 1.5 hours from the largest city which is Columbia, MO. You won't find a mall here, nor will you find any major facilities that you would normally find in a large town. This is your typicall small town environment that is common in the midwest. Though I put this in the negative part, it may very well be a positive for some people. I actually like the small town environment. It's great for focusing you on the studies at hand. It does get cold there, the average temp in JAN is around 11 degrees. I grew up in MO, so I'm pretty used to the weather, however some people that come from warmer climates may have problems. However I believe that for most, the prestige of the school, it's outstanding program, student satisfaction and excellent faculty can more than make up for the relative negatives found in the lack of services in the community."
