What impressed you positively?

"Everything!! I loved every minute I was there. The admissions staff was beyond friendly and helpful and made us feel comfortable through the entire process. Everyone I met, especially the med students who gave us the campus tour, was so nice. They made me really want to be a part of their school. The whole day was very impressive and the new dean seems very enthusiastic and hopeful about the new curriculum in terms of increasing board scores. I explored kansas city the next day as well and I think it would be a great place to live. Has some really nice areas and a huge farmers market. After interviewing at other schools, I see the difference between the schools and KCUMB definitely rose up quickly as my first choice. I feel like I will be supported here and this will make the transition into med school a lot easier. Overall, loved this school." Report Response
