What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"Discussion" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"My interviews were focused on discussion rather than question and answer; however, given my low MCAT score I was asked in a round about way how I would be able to successfully complete the curriculum. " Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"The most difficult question was not asked but it went “okay, now take me to the beginning and start from there…” He led me to start at the beginning of my life and explain everything until the present. It was difficult to find a place to eloquently start off with." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Studentdoctor.net, AACOMAS application, secondary applications, Wall Street Journal Doctor’s columns, mock interviews with tape recorder, practiced with medical school advisor, read the DOs by Norman Gevitz, and relaxed." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The atmosphere of the school was amazing! From the students to the staff and faculty to the people in Kirksville it was a very inviting atmosphere. The dedication to spouses and family equally impressed me as the entire school seemed committed and dedicated to ensuring the success of its students. I found that the school focuses on preparing you to be the best physician you can be and they do whatever it takes to make sure you succeed. The new building looks as though it will be a center of excellence. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing negatively impressed me. I am from West Texas, but have lived in Oklahoma, New Jersey, Kansas, New York, and deployed to Kuwait and Iraq over the last 10 years; thus, I have a decidedly open mind toward many things including places to live. The size of the town did not negatively affect me as it seems to affect so many others. The small size of the town is a great quality because your distractions are limited so that you can focus on the task at hand. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the facilities were a little outdated compared to other medical schools." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interview experience at Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine was amazing! My actual interviews were more discussion/conversation than interview. My interviews worked hard to get to know me rather than asking prepared questions. It seemed that with flow of conversation that most of their questions were answered. I went over time during my faculty member and physician interviews. My physician interviewer walked me back to the rest of the group and we engaged in more discussion. It was a very positive experience that left me with no doubt that Kirksville is the place for me." Report Response
