What impressed you positively?

"The place felt like a community. It was small and everyone was quite friendly. After the pre-interview 'thing' the night before, I was waiting with a few people for the shuttle back to the hotel and there was a local meandering around (he truly looked to be in need of a case worker). Security was patrolling in his truck and stayed parked next to us. Even though he (security) didn't speak to us, it was clear he was there to make sure we were safe. There are a large number of wonderfully friendly middle eastern cab drivers in KC. Their admissions person who spoke to us in the morning was animated and made me quite excited about the school and about medicine in general. (be ready to be put on the spot, though)" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Though the neighborhood is not the ghetto everyone makes it out to be, it isn't a great nieghborhood. If you are not used to poor, working class neighborhoods you could have some issues. I asked the interviewers and they said that the neighborhood has truly been improving every year. There isn't really much around campus, but the city itself seems vibrant and varied and is in the midst of a downtown improvement campaign." Report Response
