What impressed you positively?

"The students and staff were very enthusiastic. The facilties were really top notch and technologically up-to-date (nice lecture halls, great anatomy lab, numerous study areas, conference style rooms). We received a handwritten thank you note at the end of the interview from admissions and a bag with a free kent state t-shirt, socks, and a pen. The day was really organized and everything happened in a timely manner." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Students aren't really going to the clinic much it seemed until after they pass boards. There are no apartments in Independence, so you will have to live about 15 minutes away. Scholarship opportunities seem limited after 1st year" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish they had given the itinerary for the day before. In the emails they said the day would end at 3:00, but we finished by 2:00 - it would have been nice to know for planning purposes. Also, the complimentary breakfast was just juice, water, and coffee - no actual food so definitely eat beforehand" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, the school left a positive impression on me and I was impressed with the facilities and the admissions/current students. The school is definitely what you would expect to get from a podiatric/medical education as far as facilities go. The students only had positive things to say about their school, but I think it's important to take what they say with a grain of salt. They were 1st and 2nd years so it's not like they're residents or attendings who are able to reflect back on the positives/negatives of their education from a broader perspective." Report Response
