What was the most interesting question?

"I was asked how my military leadership experiences could translate over into medicine. Really was thought-provoking, but I had thought of it many times before I was asked. The main push as to why I was asked that was the movie-tainted portrayal of military leadership." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I did mock interviews, read this site, kcom.edu, and knew myself well." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Absolutely nothing." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The students get real exposure to patients from the get go by assisting with performing school physicals." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"You really must like a small town to be happy here. The nearest 'big' city is Columbia, MO and that is an hour and a half away. The school is great, it doesn't have a lot extra things in the halls to 'enhance' the look. It gave me the impression that they prefer to spend their money on programs for the students. Literally everybody knew everybody, which is great. The second years are all very friendly and helpful when giving the tours. The admissions staff are all very polite and a joy to be around. The faculty is knowledgeable and teach here because they LOVE teaching. I cannot say enough about how much I like this school." Report Response
