What are your general comments?

"The day begins with a short intro to KCOM by the director of admissions, then you go straight to interviews: two one-hour interviews with faculty members and one 15-30 minute interview with an admissions officer. Compared to other schools, this is a LOT of time interviewing. And that's a good thing. KCOM spends a lot of time actuallly getting to know applicants. During my interviews, we covered everything from a low grade I had to Law & Order to my clinical work to travel. This is not to say that we bullshitted the whole time, but simply to say that they were interested in more than standard interview questions like "What are your weaknesses?" After the interviews we had lunch with students, a campus tour and a useful financial aid presentation." Report Response
