What was the most interesting question?

"What are some current ethical concerns facing the nation? Choosing either euthanasia or abortion, describe how societial factors can influence an individual's decision to have an abortion (for instance)? " Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"NONE! They really make an effort to make every individual candidate comfortable and NOT stressed. Although I did have a major RED FLAG in my application they did not specifically asked me about it. I was given a chance to discuss any points I wanted to bring up and I thought I'd better address the red flag since they didn't!" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN interview feedback questions and forum. Read the UHS catalog in addition to all the other useful information the school sent with the interview letter. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The facility is comparable to other schools. The new genesis curriculum is fasinating amd seems to be a positive transition from the traditional curricula common at most schools. What really had a impact on me was the overall WARM feeling you get as soon as you arrive at the school. The students, faculty and even the community were all FRIENDLY and easy to approach. Students are certainly their priority." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"DO NOT stay at the ECONO LODGE near the airport! The night before my interview I dropped off all my stuff in the room and went out for dinner. Arrived back shortly afterwards only to discover I cannot get into my room because of technical issues with the lock. There was not 'back up key' in the hotel and had to wait until almost midnight for the manager. And when he did arrive he was more angry than me because he had to leave his party early to open my room! " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"From the moment you arrive for the interview there are events scheduled. You learn so much about the school, osteopathic medicine, get a chance to meet faculty, speak with financial aid, housing and meet students of all years! Being from the east coast, I knew little about Kansas City and had reservations about applying. But now after interviewing at UHS and other schools UHS remains NUMBER ONE! It's the first impression that really has an impact on the candidate and aLL I can say is that I was very IMPRESSED with UHS. If you are currently applying to osteopathic schools I would strongly recommend you to at least apply and then can decide for yourself!" Report Response
