    Interview: 3/4
    Accepted: ~3/15

    Withdrew my acceptance this week....so there is one more spot available :).


    When I interviewed they said they had quite a few seats open. I'm sorry but I don't recall the exact number, but I can say I was surprised by how many they still had open . I want to say over 100.

    Good Luck to Everyone.

      Did anyone who was accepted recently receive the letter saying they need to pay a combined acceptance and matriculation fee of $2000 before April 13th? Why so early for both? I was expecting the matriculation fee is due in May for a lot of schools. *sigh* Oh well, this is an investment for my future right?

        Yeah! I got the same $2000 bill. So did a couple of other people I know.

        They may need to make up for the funds the x-prez spent on her face lift. J.J.:laugh:

          Actually the AACOM "Osteopathic Medical College Information Book 2009" says for KCUMB and from the manual you'll see that most of the schools are the same. "Those accepted prior to November 15 have until December 14th... Those accepted between November 15th and January 14th have 30 days... Those accepted between January 15 and June 14th will have 14 days... Those accepted after June 15th may be asked for immediated deposit" The link to the manual is below http://www.aacom.org/people/colleges/Pages/default.aspx

            Yeah, I noticed that when I was checking the CIB today. Unfortunately it is "nonrefundable for any reason." They need the money. I have an interview at ATSU-SOMA after the deposit is due so I have to send it in anyways to save my spot. Well, at least ATSU-SOMA is nice enough to make their deposits REFUNDABLE! Yes, I am still going to the interview because I have been waiting for this one. Just want to check it out...compare...yadda yadda. :laugh:

              hah i think i probably just got one of your guys' spots, cause after being waitlisted after my october 1st interview, they called friday to say im in. if i had gotten accepted in october i probably would have gone, but now i'm so invested and ready to go to azcom, i don't see myself making the switch. i won't be holding on to this acceptance for long.

                I was wondering, has you guys received the financial aid packet yet? I got my credit report back a few weeks ago and waiting for the financial aid information. I was told it would be out sometime in April, and we are already at the end of the month.

                  I talked to Financial aid today and they said packets wont come out until May first or second week. They also said to make sure you have a social security card because you will need to send a copy of it in the mail with the packet signed back to them.

                      If you're looking for a decent place that isn't Century Towers, give the UMKC housing office a call at 816-235-1130. They basically own everything around the school and apparently offer pretty good rates. It goes without saying that the area is a hell of a lot better than what CT has to offer. It's about a 10-15 minute drive instead of a walk across the street, but that's a very worthwhile trade, in my opinion.

Awesome school, great teachers, would definitely recomend applying.
