What impressed you positively?

"Nothing really. The school is attached to the General Hospital. It is dark, the interviews started late, and were very unorganized." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The worst part of the day was when we finally started the interview process, right after the group was greeted by the women from admissions we were told we needed to take a test about our medical knowledge. This was stressful. The questions were on actual medical school test questions. The questions were on drugs, specific names for x-rays,and lab test etc... I graduated with a BS in Biology, and I did not know anything about medications and what they asked.I had to guess on most of the questions. Later I was told "We didn't expect you to know the answers, we just use them to compare you to the other medical students." I think I understand, but not too sure if the test was the best way to do it. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The school has a 6 year program where you can get your BA and MD. I applied for an advanced standing spot, one vacated by a 6 year student. The cost of this school. it is almost 65K per year." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This was the worst interview experience. Since then, I have had 2 others. Both better.After this interview I waited a full year before I sent out applications again. I was accepted at UMKC, but could not afford the cost.I was accepted this year at another MD school closer to home. I felt I should warn students about this school. If I knew about this school, and the poor ratings it gets nationally, I would never have accepted the interview or spent the money for the hotel and for gas, if I knew then what I know now. My advice. Avoid UMKC school of Medicine!" Report Response
