If you want to do anything but Journalism, Engineering, or Business go somewhere else. The school of health professions is super hard to get into for some programs and easy for others. The nursing school is great but people don't always get in when they deserve it. People with 3.9 GPAs will not get in but someone with a 3.2 does because their parent called and that parent had financial weight. Most of the people teaching classes, especially large lectures, were never interested in being teachers and they still hate it. As a research university, many of the instructors are researchers first and instructors second. You can really feel this in the hard sciences, where all they do is spew info at you without asking questions or deviating from the power point.

At least half of the girls in every class have gone to private school at some point and a lot of them think that it makes them better/smarter than public school kids. A lot of the sorority girls went to private schools, so good luck getting in if you weren't intensely prepared.

The science classes needed for pre-med are mostly weed-out classes that are unnecessarily difficult to get an A in, so if you're not pre-med but still need those classes, you face a frustrating road ahead.

If you like being spectacularly average/below average but think you're superior, go to mizzou. If you're a republican because of pure greed, racism, or your parents' views and not faith/morals or real belief in the policies, go to mizzou.

Rate my professor is your best friend. I've had teachers who were super into their subject so the 200-500 person lecture kept me interested and coming back for more, but I've also had tons of classes that bored me to tears because the person seemed to have little or no interest in the content or student understanding.

I have been in two pre-health professions majors and I was given the opportunity to apply early to one. They lost my application and ultimately seemed to know little about the requirements for their own program. I'm transferring to a local college with a smaller student body and higher nursing exam pass rate to get my degree in nursing without having to deal with the biases and incompetencies of the admissions processes here.

commentI was taking note of your comments/opinions and thought that I understood some of your frustrations. Until, you went into a tirade of stereo-types regarding private school, political views, racism and faith. You might have been spot on, but your closed mindedness leads me to believe that it is you who are biased and have a chip on your shoulder.
