Hi everyone!

I got accepted (yay!) and I’m very interested in KYCOM, but I want to learn more before I 100% commit to attend. Therefore, I want to make sure I know what I’m agreeing to by paying the deposit and accepting the offer.

1) I know that typically paying the deposit at a school would not be a binding agreement to attend. Am I right in thinking this is the case for KYCOM, too?

2) Is choosing “accept” in the “offer response” tab part of the deposit process to save a seat? If it’s separate, what level of commitment does it entail and does it have the same deadline as the deposit?

3) Are other materials due on the deposit deadline? If so, what else is due?

Thank you so much to anyone with answers, and good luck to anyone waiting for news!

Has anyone gotten an interview since the beginning of January?

I have an upcoming interview with KYCOM! Just wonder if the interview is going to be open, closed, or partial open? What type of questions do they normally ask?

It's open file. Just know the basics like why medicine, why do, and be prepared to talk about any meaningful experiences in your life! My interview was extremely chill and conversational. Favorite interview so far!

I second this! They were also reassuring me during the interview, saying "That was a good response" or "I'm really impressed with ___" which helped me stay confident. Definitely have answers to the basic questions prepared, but don't stress. Remember to have fun!

In state, secondary submitted 11/28, got an email to interview on 2/21 and interviewed on 2/26.
 
Has anyone who interviewed in the past few weeks heard anything from admissions?
 
Interviewed late February. Received A call today.

I interviewed a few days before 2/27- is it safe to assume I’ll be rejected or waitlisted? I was told I’d hear back within a week to a week and a half.

They said the committee should meet on 29th. If Dean is the one making all the calls, maybe it can take him 2-3 days max to contact everyone who get an A. Don't lose hope yet!

Anyone have a more detailed match list? Like programs people match into specifically?
They said they are going to try and get the list updated this week. But they are a couple years behind now.

Edit: it is now somewhat live at this link but as far as I can tell not all of it is viewable on mobile.

Hey everyone!! First off, I wanted to say congratulations on getting accepted into medical school. It’s really a big accomplishment and everyone should feel extremely proud to even have the opportunity to interview. I recently graduated from KYCOM( few days ago) and will be moving out on June 10th. I wanted to see if it was possible to get your class GroupMe or discord link so I can post my house that will be up for rent starting in July. It’s a 2bd/1ba about 5 minutes away from the school and is only $600/month. If someone has the link, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks and congratulations again guys on all of your hard work!!
 
What's the minimum MCAT for KYCOM interview
