What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"Do you think you're prepared for medical school and why?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"I wasn't asked anything incredibly surprising. I was asked about a mediocre grade that I had gotten in mathematics. This was a little weird since it wasn't a required class for admission to UHS. It seemed a little nit-picky to me. " Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"I was asked what I had thought about the Florida woman situation. It was very broad so I didn't know if they were asking about the ethics of the situation or the legality of state intervention. However, I just gave my opinion on both. There isn't really a right or wrong answer." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"UHS website, SDN, reviewed books on ethics and health care issues, looked over primary and secondary applications" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The facilities were very nice. The students and faculty were really amiable. The students seemed happy to be there. I really liked the curriculum since it was a systems-based approach. Also, I also thought that Kansas City was a very nice place. Many people had commented that the school's location was rather dangerous. Being from an urban area, I didn't consider the school's location to be problematic in any way. Cost of living is cheap compared to where I'm from. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Although the environment seemed supportive and cooperative, I think that the grading system is based on a curve, which I didn't find appealing. I'm not so sure about this, but that's what some of the interviewees were discussing. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I had known that the interview was really low stress. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"UHS is a fantastic school. I really liked the campus and facilities. Everyone was approachable and friendly. The students were really proud of their school and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We had gotten to interact with many of the first and second year students during lunch and when we were waiting to be called to the interview in the student lounge. The only strange point of the interview day was when we were being verbally quizzed about the tenets of osteopathic philosophy. " Report Response
