Prospective medical students visit Salina for interviews
Strong applicants to the M.D. program at the University of School of Medicine are invited for in-person interviews. For some of the students who aspire to be a part of the Class of 2018, the interviews took place in Salina.
Thirty-seven applicants interviewed at the KU School of Medicine–Salina on Dec. 2 and 3. The prospective students sat for two 30-minute interviews, learned about the curriculum and financial aid, and had lunch and a campus tour with current medical students.
An applicant who interviews in Salina does not necessarily attend the Salina campus if he or she is admitted into the M.D. program. A prospective student who prefers to attend the Kansas City or Wichita campus may interview in Salina because it is near their hometown or undergraduate institution.
“We’re interviewing for the School of Medicine admissions process,” Sandra McCurdy, associate dean of admissions, says. “The campus assignments come later.”
Still, students who interview in Salina because of the convenience are often impressed by what they see and hear. read more >>
