What are your general comments?

"You start your day in a room with the other applicants and a packet of info...one of the deans of the school comes in and pick people, by name, to answer questions about osteopathic medicine (not to stress, it is really only to help you out for the interview). He gives his presentation about what KCUMB has to offer, why you should go here, and how med school will be full of both rewards and sacrifices. You then are taken to the OMT lab and get to do a Q&A session with some med students which is very helpful to get a better feel for the school. You then go on a tour of the facilities, which are very nice and then eat lunch. Before the interview time, which is at the very end of the day :(, you tour one of the housing facilities that is close to campus...then on to your interview. The med students will tell you who you will be interviewing with and give helpful hints on what questions they ask, or what to look for. While you are waiting you are fitted for a white coat. The interview I had was 2 on 1, open file, and not stressful at all. I had an acceptance letter in the mail before I returned from Thanksgiving break." Report Response
