What impressed you positively?

"KCOM courted me - they made me feel welcome and important. None of the arrogance found at some other schools (even if KCOM's reputation might merit a little)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Only one minor thing - that the presentation about the student fitness center (we couldn't do a tour because of rain) was a "work in progress" and essentially useless." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I had asked a lot of questions in the forums and to some KCOM graduates so nothing was new to me per se. I was surprised just how family friendly they are (which is a plus to me with a wife and kids)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The first interview was very brief with an admissions staff member reviewing my file and asking why I wanted to be a D.O., why KCOM, when I planned to take physics II and organic chem II, etc. The second two interviews were each about an hour. Very comfortable interviews, very casual, low stress. My number one recommendation for an interviewee would be to know why you want to attend KCOM specifically, and what about osteopathic medicine is appealing to you." Report Response
