What impressed you positively?

"EVERYTHING! This school is very well organized for every year you're attending. It's rich with history and tradition, not to mention all the grads get GREAT residencies. One of the top anatomy programs in the country. One cadaver per 4 students. Some schools have up to 8 students, not good. Students are well respected in the community, by faculty, and by the admissions department. The town of Kirksville is on the small side and isolated, but there's everything you need here. No commute, students seemed to get along great, free gym and workout sessions, a lot of clubs, and organizations for spouses. If you need more, check your reasons for attending med school."

What are your general comments?

"A very well organized, informational day. All of us interviewing were treated great. The interviews went extremely well. They seemed to want to know why you wanted to go into medicine and if you would be a great fit for them as well. No pressure, just be sure to have a cohesive way of telling them your path to getting where you are to this point. It was a nice conversational interview with non-threatening questions. Stay with a student if you can. They are very open to answering all questions. I received my acceptance letter 10 days later...KCOM here I come!" Report Response
