What impressed you negatively?

"I was not very impressed with the facilities. No wireless internet. Small Library. It does not seem like the type of place I would want to stick around once classes were done. Didnt seem like the best environment to study outside of class. Some of the students mentioned that at the end of the day they are always ready to get home and to study elsewhere away from the school." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Know the history of A.T. Still and the foundations of osteopathic medicine. The person you meet with at the beginning of the day somewhat drills people about this. He isnt a part of admissions committee so it wasnt that big of a deal. He just really likes to put you on the spot. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview went very well. I was with a general surgeon and lady in charge of student services. They were both extremely nice and easy to conversate with. The one thing that I thought was strange was that they wanted to know where else I had already visited and what I thought of that school. It made me feel like I had to compare the schools and convince them why I would come to KCUMB instead. But overall it was a very good experience. They told me at the end that they felt that I was a strong candidate. " Report Response
