What are your general comments?

"Overall, my interview experience was great! It was not high stress at all. I was confident in my academic abilities and knew if any questions came up about those that I would address them quickly and succintly and move on. However, I didn't have any questions regarding my MCAT or past grades. The interviews were low-key and more like conversations with the standard questions thrown in. Just know yourself, your motivations for osteopathic medicine, how your experiences led you to pursue medicine namley DO, and how you got to the point of interviewing at KCOM. Be confident in your answers and be prepared to defend them if you need to. " Report Response
