What are your general comments?

"The interview day started at 8 with a presentation of the general curriculum and all of KCOMs programs. There were 9 interviewees there, and we each had different interviewers. We started our first 1hr interview at 9, and had a second at 10. After that, there is a short 15minute interview with an admissions staff member. Next, we had lunch with student ambassadors and a quick OMM demonstration, which was pretty interesting. Lastly, there was a financial overview and a tour. Everything you hear about the interviews being 'laid-back' and conversational is true. They didn't ask a single ethical or tough situation question. ALL of the questions were straight from my file and related to my experiences, etc. They called me two days later to let me know I was accepted. Quick response!" Report Response
