    Is the fee due on Dec 14th, or BY Dec 14th (so must pay on the 13th?) I may have to wait until the final day to put the deposit down, just want to make sure

    December 14th. I held out as long as I could for my other acceptances while I was waiting to hear from KCU. Think I paid at like 9pm on December 14th.

    If you want to be safe, just do it on the 13th.

    Lol actually I'm normally that super anal person who does things super in advanced. I just knew KCU was going to let me know either the 14th or the 15th and I was praying it would be the 14th so I wouldn't lose money. Of course, it ended up being the 15th!

    Literally what I'm worried about! My fee for ARCOM is due on December 14th, which is ironically the day that KCU should let the 11/15 interviewee's know!

    It's worth it in the end! It sucks to lose money but I was more excited about my acceptance to worry about it :)

    They told you 4 weeks? I interviewed on 10/30 and they said it would be a minimum of 6 weeks because of the holidays. Hmm...

    When I asked they said they will try to get out the results for the 11/15 interviewee's around the 4-week mark. Looking back on last year's thread they did something similar for those that interviewed mid-late November / early December.

    Interviewed 11/1: I recall them saying 4-6 weeks; but, they said it'll be closer to 4 weeks for our group.

    Man... looks like everyone who got accepted post II all have pretty high LM. Mine is 62, interviewed 10/30. The anxiety is pretty real right now, hopefully they look heavily at my interview which I think I did great.

    Hey we interviewed the same day! I was in the "afternoon" group. Is this your top choice for school?

    I interviewed 10/18 and got accepted. I do not have a high LM. Just relax and realize you did everything you can up to this point. Many people are still without interviews. You should feel great about getting an interview—especially with KCU’s rumored acceptance rate post-interview. Hope you hear good news.

    Heyyy, I was in afternoon group as well. And yes it is my #1 choice, love the campus, the city, the staff and students, everything. Just hope they can over look kinda low stat but since they offered me an interview that means they are happy with my stat right?

    I would listen to asnontraditionalasitgets, you got the interview so they must like you on paper. If you did well on interview day, then I'd say you're set!

    Thank you so much, will check it out. I really like the interview style they have, since I’m tired of being asked about certain grade or MCAT score on all traditional interview

    If you don't mind me asking, what was your LM score? Mine is a 63 and am afraid I will get waitlisted or rejected post interview. Congrats on the acceptance!

    Can any students recommend places/avenues to look for housing in KC? Recently got accepted and am looking at some of the apartments/homes for rent and would prefer something pet-friendly. Any help would be appreciated!
    Thanks!

    I had a LM of 62 and got accepted to Joplin Campus. Just went into my interview confident and tried to be personable. I guess it worked because my stats did not have much to say for me. Good luck to you!

    People live all over, depends on your budget and what's important for you. Lots of people with families live in the suburbs (south of KC, Overland Park area). I wouldn't recommend this unless you have a family cause it's pretty far. Another big chunk of people live north of the river (Gladstone, North KC area) because it tends to be cheaper than living downtown and is only a 10 minute drive. Then you have people who live downtown or in the Plaza area, which is nice if you like the city vibe but will cost you more for less.

    II today!
    Set campus preference to KC
    From what I can see there's only availability on 12/4 or 12/6, dont mean to sound ungrateful or anything, but does anyone know what to do to see if there would be another day available?
    I have finals on both 12/5 and 12/6 and I am pretty certain my Professors are not willing to budge on the date of the exam.

    Also received II for today for both 12/4 and 12/6. Chose 12/6. I'm assuming this might be some of their last interviews but not sure Incursio!

    Hey congrats on the II, for now I scheduled mine on 12/6, but unless someone has any other advice, I am thinking of calling the office tomorrow morning to see if they would be willing to offer me another day.

    Congratulations! Mind sharing the date you were complete?

    I was complete 11/8 and haven’t heard anything yet. I know they say 6 weeks, just curious if anyone has heard before then?

    Thank you! For me it was definitely more than 6 weeks, so don't worry if you haven't heard anything yet. I got the complete email the week of 10/1, but had my secondary in before that.

    Also considering Thanksgiving was just last week, and the holidays are coming up I would say give it another month or so.

    Do they typically accept applicants late in the interview cycle? How long did interviews go for last year?

    Interviews went until march last year. I’m pretty sure they don’t go past mid march though.

    Is there a separate application for the MBA program once we are accepted? When and where are the classes? Is it online? Does it conflict with DO program at all?

    Jumping in, but they explain all of this on interview day. You basically try and make time for it in the summer so that it doesn’t get in the way of the DO program.
