"The facilities were depressing, especially the classroom that first year students use. The clinical practice rooms were nice, but overall the entire campus was not that impressive. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"For their third and fourth years, some students have to go to Wichita. They typically ask for volunteers, but if they don't have enough people to fill the 55 spots, they do a random lottery drawing to see who will go. They also mentioned that it does not matter if a student is married and their spouse has a good job in Kansas City or if they own a house. They basically said if they want you to go to Wichita you go to Wichita. They are also forcing every new student to purchase a tablet computer, which from their comments I gather is fairly expensive. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The first interview is conducted by a member of the selection committee and is open file.

After the interview there was lunch with med students, a presentation about financial aid and curriculum and finally a tour" Report Response
