What are your general comments?

"The interview itself was fairly laid back and not stressful. I felt I could express myself and my reasons for wanting to be a doctor. The sales pitch in the morning was lengthy and thorough, extremely well thought and expressed. The school is very proud of their curriculum (and they should be). It was a good experience, and I learned a lot about medical school, and the questions to ask other schools who weren't as thorough as KCUMB." Report Response
