What are your general comments?

"I was excited to be returning to KCOM to interview after last year not even being offered an interview. The admissions staff is wonderful and they give you some time to interact with some of the other applicants as well as to collect yourself. The day continues with a brief presentation about KCOM, you then go into your interviews. Just be yourself and relaxed, they only want to get to know you better. After the interviews you have lunch, and then several other tours and an OMM demonstration. By the time your feet have gone numb from the walking in uncomfortable shoes your day is over. The other nice thing about KCOM is their turn around time, by the next week I was notified that I had been accepted. " Report Response
