What are your general comments?

"Everyone in admissions was extremely nice and helpful. The student that I stayed with was very welcoming and informative. I really enjoyed the school, town, and students. I was only turned off by the two individuals that interviewed me. They didn't ask me any questions to try and get to know me. The second interviewer told me that he didn't care why I wanted to be a doctor or why I wanted to be a DO. He said everyone has the same story and no one is unique. His only question was, ''What do you have for me?'' Every questioned I asked him was answered like a politician (Nothing truly answered). I was very impressed with the school, technology, and labs. I believe that anyone that attended KCOM would receive a top-notch osteopathic education. I didn't get accepted, but I have been accepted at two other medical programs." Report Response
