What are your general comments?

"The day starts with meeting in the lobby where you are met with an admissions officer who will update you about the day and how it will run. Then you get a very comprehensive presentation about KCOM as a whole. This presentation actually answered most of my questions that I had. Next came the interviews. There were a total of 3 interviews which were one on one. The first two are with faculty which were about one hour long for me. The last was with an admissions officer which was about 20 minutes. All the interviews were laid back and they asked reasonable questions about why you want to become a doctor and why do you want to go to their school. All other questions were about your file. I did however get one or two thought provoking questions. Those were the most difficult and I had to take like 20 seconds of silents to think of an answer. After the interviews was lunch with 4 second year students. They also were laid back and answered any and all questions we had. After lunch was a financial aid presentation and then a presentation about their Thompson Campus Center. After that was the campus tour by 4 enthusiastic students. They even let us put gloves on and touch the cadavers. After that was our goodbyes and that ends the interview process. The whole ordeal was very laid back. There was a little stress over the interviews, but that's normal. Overall I had a good time." Report Response
