How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, looked over the KYCOM website, and read multiple books about interviewing at medical schools." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The community feeling I sensed during the interview. Everyone was friendly and there to support each other rather than being in a competitive environment full of gunners. This isn't to say you wont be pushed to succeed, but rather everyone is working to succeed together. They have some extremely well-respected faculty, and the Dean is at the top of the AOA."

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the interview day was shorter than I expected." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I would recommend KYCOM to improve their website. It is hard to find information on it. They need to include more stats on the student population (types of students they accept ie. what region/state, activities that students matriculating participate in, the number of acceptances per interviews, number of students that participate in research etc) . The website is a chance to promote the school, and I don't think it does a good job selling KYCOM." Report Response

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"I would suggest that the interview day last longer. It felt awkward to just leave after the interview was over. They did not present any financial aid presentation like most schools. Another thing I would suggest (it will not work on Saturday interview days) is to have prospective students sit in on a lecture. Another suggestion could be a demonstration of OMM by some of the 2nd year students. Overall the interview day was well paced, but it needed to be longer to sell the school more." Report Response
