How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read SDN, read KU info, and basically the experience of having already done 4 interviews helped a ton." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The students were really nice, and so were most of the interviewees (the less pretentious ones, at least). The boys held doors open for the girls! I didn't know what to do! They don't do that in the northeast!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Just stupid things, like a big chunk of the current first year class is married...do they get married younger in Kansas? " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There's a rural preceptorship where they send you (mostly) to western Kansas for a month. If you've ever been to western Kansas, you'd see my concern. I would deal with it though in the end." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"There are actually two interviews, one after the other. The first is with one person (doctor in my case), who has your entire file at his disposal. He is the one presenting you to the adcom. The second interview was with two people (a doctor and a 4th yr med student in my case), and they only had your ECs and personal statement. My two interviews were awesome, especially the second one, which was really just like a conversation rather than a situation where I had to work really hard to sell myself. Also, if anyone is curious, I'm an out-of-state applicant, so never fear, it IS possible to get an interview if you are in that situation." Report Response
