What are your general comments?

"I felt like the interview went really well. It was mostly just a conversation wanting to get to know me...no trick questions, etc. The first was open-file and focused more on my grades. The next was closed-file and I enjoyed it a lot more. Both interviewers were doctors who are faculty at KU Med. The second interview typically has two people, but one of the interviewers wasn't able to make it. Everyone seemed very helpful, informative, and I enjoyed the day overall." Report Response
