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

"Why KCOM?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"The questions were not hard at all. My first interviewer had my file open and asked standard questions. My second interviewer had obviously read my file but didn't have it with her and she just simply wanted to hold a conversation with me. Probably the most intresting question was why I decided to do clinical research instead of laboratory research." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"None were difficult." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, Osteopathic medicine websites, reviewed my file." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"I really suggest staying with students. I changed my overnight arrangements after reading comments on SDN and I am very glad that I did. I met a lot of KCOM students the night before and not only did they offer a lot of advice and information about the school, but they went out of their way to say hi to me when they saw me around campus on the tour. Also, everyone is very laid back there. They are not trying to criticize you, they just want to see if you are a good fit for KCOM. Lunch with the students and the white coat fitting were also fun." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"You can change your travel plans to stay with students and I really encourage it. Also there will be about ten other applicants there that day that you will do everything with besides your interviews. At first having a lot of other people there was distracting, but after awhile we all started to talk to one another about our interviews that day and other places we had been." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It couldn't have been more stress free. This was the first school I interviewed at and all my first interview nervousness was out the door as soon as I walked into admissions." Report Response
