"How would a D.O. treat a patient compared to an M.D.?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"I didn't think any were difficult. It's not hard to talk about yourself. The interviewers really wanted to get to know me. I can tell that Kirksville is dedicated to find students that will fit in at KCOM. I haven't interviewed at a school yet (besides KCOM) that spends so much time conducting the interviews. Two one-hour interviews are an excellent way to get to know somebody compared to one 30 minute interview." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"KCOM website, primary application, and secondary application" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everything! I hope to attend the school if accepted. I find out next Wednesday. One thing in particular is the depth that they go into anatomy. First-year students have anatomy courses from August to June (or July?) of the next year. Anatomy I think is very important, and so this philosophy fits me well. Students come first at KCOM." Report Response

"Nothing! I've noticed that some people feel negative about the size of the town. I personally don't like living in larger towns and think Kirksville is the perfect size." Report Response
