"One of my interviewers seemed to be trying to get me to ''react'' by asking very pointed and very personal questions. I felt more like I was meeting with a psychologist than interviewing." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How good the roads getting to Kirksville actually were. I thought that it would be a two lane for the last 30 or 40 miles...and that it's not near as far from KC as I thought." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, I was impressed, but one of my interviewers was rather unprepared, and seemed to not be all that interested in the process...and the other asked a bunch of prying and very personal questions. Like I said, overall I was pretty pleased, but certain things were less than impressive, almost to the point of me feeling like they were inappropriate. That being said, I had no hard feelings and would not be hesitant to attend KCOM, because the schools appears great. " Report Response
