What impressed you positively?

"I really like their curriculum. It is called Genesis which is a systems approach. Rather than studying anatomy, histology, pharm. separately, they integrated it all and you study each system at a time (ie. cardiovascular, renal, etc)" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Location, location, location!!! I was really suprised by the area. It is just east (I think) of downtown in a very run-down neighborhood. Supposedly there is very good security but as a female, I would NEVER want to walk to my car at midnight in that neighboorhood. If I end up going to KCUMB I will probably study at home most nights."

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing new :)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall I had a very good experience! I went down to KC for the entire weekend so we scoped out different neighborhoods. There was an informational session the night before which only a few students showed up for. A lady from admissions answered any and all questions. She seemed to be the 'campus Mom' and was extremely nice! You can really tell that she cared about the well being of the students. Luckily she ended up being one of my interviewers the next day. What was also nice about the informational session is that she gave us a tour of the campus that was more thorough than the one we received on interview day. We actually saw the study rooms in the building devoted to studying and went inside the library and micro labs. The interview day started at 9 with an intro from one of the directors of the school. Very impressive. Make sure you know the basics about osteopathic medicine -- All the info you need to know is on their website. Then we had 3 ambassadors that answered more questions and a campus tour. Then lunch and a tour of the living hall across the road. Very nice, but again I don't think I'd want to live in the neighborhood. Then interview time!! The interview was very laid back and they were really prepared. They asked specific questions based on things in my application and personal statment. As an aside, make sure you bring at least 2 questions to ask your interviewers. Make sure you address both of them in your questioning. I really enjoyed my interview and am patiently waiting to hear back..... :)" Report Response
