What was the most interesting question?

"Honestly, I can't remember. There were no real questions. Nothing about ethics, no hypothetical situations, just going over my experiences. Why I wanted to be a doctor, What were my weaknesses/strengths...nothing hard. They were really very nice and when I walked in they told me to just sit back and relax. They also had read my entire file and were familiar with everything so make sure you know what you said about yourself." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Coming from new york city I did feel that everyone was a bit more conservative than I was but that isn't really a big problem for me just be aware of it. Also, this whole dress code thing is overblown. Its a no jeans thing but scrubs are always permitted and most of the guys just wear scrubs if they don't want to throw on some pants. As for the city being a little unattractive, at least it is still a city. You could be in a school in a much smaller place..." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It was a little cold but it could be worse. I bet UNECOM is absolutely brutal in the middle of winter. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"if you are coming from out-of-town it seems like most people live in CT (Century Towers, I think). When I heard the rent I was floored. I think it was about 400 for a 1 bedroom. New Yotk City is about triple for a 1 bedroom so obviously living expenses are a lot lower in kansas which will keep your debt down when you graduate. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Nice and relaxed. Do make sure you review some of your DO information. They gave a 1 hour talk on stuff and would randomly ask people questions. No harm in saying you don't know but I'd imagine some people would have their nerves fried if they didn't know. " Report Response
