What impressed you positively?

"The students I stayed with were the nicest people- they were realistic and didn't hide anything- they told me the good and the bad. I appreciated that. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The school is REALLY nice, but the surrounding 3 mile radius of the school is really ghetto. It was just really unsafe- but outside of that? Kansas City is actually REALLY big for any of you who thought the school was in the middle of a cornfield" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I knew how STRESS-LESS the interview would be. It was realllly a breeze. I stressed out over nothing. I interviewed on Thursday, was accepted the following day, and had my letter of acceptance in my hand on Monday- so they are pretty quick! It was my first interview, and I feel very blessed- the school was great. I think you should definately learn about the Genesis system [ask someone if you don't know] and make sure you like the systemic based curriculum. It makes for nice talk in your interview if you know how they work." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I think you should definately find a student to stay with- talk to them ahead of time on the phone. It will save you a lot of money. Renting a car so that you can see the real city and figure out if you can live in the area was a plus for me. Realize that in reality, you will only be here for 2 years probably- and that rotations will most likely be somewhere else. So suck it up cuz its med school and KCUMB ranks well." Report Response
