What are your general comments?

"Overall my experience at my KU-med interview was a good one, mainly because of the quality of conversation that I had with each of my interviewer. Although I was asked some ethical questions and the "why medicine question", those types of questions constituted a minimal amount of each interview.....both of my interviews were very conversational. The stress level was minimal, and the KU faculty and students that I met where extremely kind and very supportive of their school. " Report Response
