What are your general comments?

"Interviews at UMKC are only supposed to be 45 minutes. My interviewer liked to talk, and so did I, so I ended up going way longer. They want you to feel comfortable and tell interviewers to make conversation, although they have some formal interview questions they are supposed to ask. Know your application (and yourself) inside and out, my interview was basically a re-hashing of everything on my AADSAS application- aka everything I had ever done. I didn't care much for Kansas City-although it is better than many cities in the Midwest, not that that is saying much!" Report Response
