What are your general comments?

"The interview day starts out with a brief introduction to the school and D.O. philosophy. Questions are asked about A.T. Still, how he came to found osteopathic medicine etc. If you are applying to a D.O. school read the aacoms website for important dates and brief synopsis of the profession. Students were then taken on a tour of the medical school by med. students followed by lunch. This was very helpful since you can ask lots of unbiased questions and formulate any additional questions pertaining to KCUMB. The interview normally only last 15 minutes but I related well to my interviewers and our session went for about 40 minutes. I would suggest asking very program specific questions; I asked several question about their systems-based curriculum called genesys. Overall, the interview well... I interview on a Tuesday and received an acceptance letter on that Saturday. So far I have been accepted to both osteopathic and allopathic schools but would probably select this one over many other institutions." Report Response
