Regarding the iPad: is it permissible/frowned upon/will I get a stern talking too, if I trade it in for another model? Ive been using the 11 inch for work the past 6 months and now the 9.7s feel mini, id prefer to keep using an 11 or even the 12.9 inch screen.
So technically the iPad is not yours to trade in until after two years BUT I know you can talk with the tech people and ask permission to trade the iPad in for the larger and more expensive Pro. But I know students who sold their school iPad and bought the Pro. But my class didn’t get an Apple Pencil compatible iPad. Your class will. Also, the school pays for AppleCare for two years but I don’t know what happens if you trade it in.

not sure if this is the proper place but anyone here do their masters program and get in after? i just got accepted to the 2 year and am debating on coming here instead because it seems like a great program and a lot of graduates get into med schools after. i'm comparing this to midwestern's 2 year masters in biomedical sciences

I just finished my masters program at KCU and I’m in the incoming class. Ultimately it comes down to personal preference as to what program you choose, but for me personally, I came from a university with a poor science program. After 1 year of being in Kansas City, I’m light years ahead of the student I was just a year ago. I don’t know anything about Midwesterns program, but I will tell you being here was the single greatest decision I’ve ever made.

Thanks guys!It seems like a great program. Midwestern is close to home so I’d save money but kcu seems to have a good reputation and stats so it’s hard to give up this. Idk hard deduction but I’m glad it’s worked out for you jlj

I know this is super frowned upon, but during one of the tours one of the student ambassadors said they worked as like a front desk person at one of the study buildings? is this a thing, and how do I look into it?

They mentioned that it wasn't a huge time commitment, and they were still able to study during their shift.
Just something I'm considering.

I don't know if this is a rumor or not so I thought I'd ask lol is it true that if you show up on the first day of class & someone doesn't show up, you get their seat?

Edit: I know this is highly unlikely but a girl can dream ha

Student assistant. They will send out emails when they look for new ones.

Seriously unlikely. While people can lose their seat for not showing up to orientation, I doubt they will accept someone that showed up uninvited.

Does anyone know if the Ikea that is by Kansas City (Technically it's in Merriam, Kansas) is in a good area? I don't like exploring places by myself if I don't know the area...

I feel like it’s in a pretty nice area, personally. I’m a 20-something small sized lady and I would feel comfortable going there alone

As someone who lives in a top 5 metro area for violent crimes, this question made me chuckle. I would consider any tiny town in Kansas safe. :p

Are they any Joplin students looking for a roommate?
if you're still looking for a roommate, I am currently looking around for housing options. I come in for orientation on July 13 and want to hopefully have something locked in during that week

For what it’s worth: I’m from KC and most of the surrounding towns/cities are very, very safe, “good” areas. You will be totally fine at IKEA - I have run errands all over town by myself since I could drive and I am a small-ish girl who would be a pretty easy target. The area right by KCU is not the best, but you will be fine as long as you’re smart and alert. Going outside of the city is probably your best bet if you’re nervous at all - it’s maybe a 15/20 min drive max. Some close cities that are absolutely safe on your own: Merriam, Shawnee, Overland Park, Leawood, Lenexa, Mission, Brookside, Country Club Plaza area (considered KCMO, but is in the super rich part of town). Let me know if you have any other questions about the area!

I just finished the one year program at KCU and got into COM ‘23. This program was the best decision I have ever made.

Can someone post the schedule here if possible? Can’t seem to find it on the Facebook...

Also, for current KC students, are there lockers on campus anywhere that we can keep stuff secured?

Are we supposed to wear suit jackets over our professional clothes on the first day of orientation since we're getting our white coats and taking ID pictures that day right? I saw some pictures from upperclassmen and they're just wearing white coats not suit jackets
