What impressed you positively?

"The combined efforts made by the admission staff in selling KCUM. Before the individual interviews,we were given a presentation about the school and Osteopathic Medicine (it was like a sales pitch for buying a time-share in Las Vegas). The guy next to me kept nodding off. Overall it was alittle lengthy." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"A 2nd Yr. Med Student came by while we waited to be taken to the individual interviews. She answered some questions some of us had and told afew of us she had been accepted a 4 MD programs, including an MD/PhD program at Harvard. She said she decided on this school because it was so good. This same med. student later told one of my fellow interviewees that he shouldn't worry about his mcat scores because hers were really low after taking them 3 times and she got in here. Very strange chick. Not sure what to make of this incident. " Report Response
