What impressed you positively?

"everything! This is the best DO school I have seen so far. Facilities are great, everything is wireless, they are building a brand new building that will be ready for next year, the staff and everyone is awesome. Kirksville is small, but darn cheap. The school is very interested in the students, and they have an awesome rec. building for lifting weights etc. They have lots of student organizations and KCOM has good board pass rate, and really good residency placement. Its the founding school of osteopathic medicine, and has been around since 1892 so it is very well established and well operated." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interviewers were a PhD microbiologist and a Surgeon(DO). They were amazing men, and really were interested in me, and the things I have done. The interviews are long, but they simply want to know who they are accepting, which I think is the way it should be. The questions are good, but make sure you know your statements and application. This is the best interview I've had among 3 interviews so far. They let you know about a week later if you get in, which is incredibly nice." Report Response
