What impressed you positively?

"pros: caring atmosphere, happy professors, happy students, established school, buildings are pretty big and many floors, the alumni center (awesome, looks like a resort in the mountains, or that new hotel at disneyland made out of wood), genesis curriculum (very practical!), has a bookstore, school atmosphere is extremely professional, lots of help - support sys. I like trying on the white Dr. coat. the student lounge where you wait before interviews /it had a big-screen TV, computers, pool table. Anybody that goes to this school WILL receive one of the best medical education anywhere and will be worth every penny. Gym was Ok, not 2 small and not too big" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"cons: small anatomy lab, extreme lack of diversity (not UHS's decision), no on-campus housing, cafeteria food (oily foods, open around 6 AM to 2 PM), walking around KC is lonely, felt like i was the only one around, may have to go out of state for clinical rotation, dress code (example, guys - slacks and collared shirts ; or can wear scrubs), school is too professional, doesn't seem like students have fun learning. Remember, this is a school, not a business. Can't wear jeans, t-shirts. One of the student tour guide was not friendly." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"most students are married with kids, most students live 10-15 min away from campus, if you live at the apartment diagonally across the street, have to drive 10-15 min to nearest supermarket, wal-mart, There's no traffic. KCI airport is weird, has like 4 1-story buildings next to each other. Area isn't as ghetto as some would say. KC has many old-fashioned, brick buildings. I heard that unemployment rate in KC is increasing." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Interview was pleasant. Panel of 2 went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. Conversation rather than Q&A. Extremely nice interviewers. The video that you see in the morning is not an accurate depiction of the diversity of the school. But if I was responsible for making that video, i would have done the same thing." Report Response
