    Hey everyone! I am grateful to have gotten three acceptances from KCU (kansas city, MO), LMU (harrogate, TN) and BCOM (las cruces, NM).

    Hey all! I've been accepted at KCU-Joplin, and have an upcoming interview at NSU.

    AZCOM vs. KCU-Joplin

    I know these threads can be common but I have yet to see one that discusses the Joplin Campus Specifically. Both schools are solid academically as far as I can tell, so that wont be listed as a pro or con. Here is how the situation plays out for me: I am from California so AZCOM has the...

    KCUMB vs. NYCOM

    Hi everyone, I've been accepted to both KCU and NYCOM. While this is great I'm struggling to decide which school to go to. NYCOM is about 40k more expensive over 4 years, but being in NY its pretty much set that you'll end up the Tri-state area for residency. This is a big plus because I've...

    Does KCUMB screen their primaries or something?

    I've applied to 19 medical schools, and I got 18 secondaries back really fast. KCUMB, however, has not sent me a secondary application. Any idea what's up? I admittedly did not send my application for KCUMB until last week, but the other applications came in almost immediately after I was verified.
