"The people were very friendly and down-to-earth. The lunch tasted ok, but was cool because a physician and several current students came and ate with us. These are people that I would enjoy being around " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Students seemed to have a little too much free time on their hands. The facilities aren't bad, but not impressive either. Having just the one hospital on site was a little disappointing, compared to other schools I'd visited." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The interviewers actually come get you for your interviewer, not the other way around. The med center can be a little difficult to get around, so allow yourself some extra time." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"There are two interviews: one open-file, one mostly-closed-file. I had a Ph.D. for the first, and two surgeons for the second. The first was somewhat business-like, but still positive. The second was even better. Getting in KU from out of state is difficult; only 10% of the class goes to out-of-staters. Good luck!" Report Response
