    Let me know what they say. I am in the same boat and have also been wondering if and when they will contact me.

    Kaj, so your in state also and have not heard back yet about an interview? I think I'm going to call them today.
  • TwinTurbo93R1TwinTurbo93R1 Registered User Posts: 8 New Member
    Well my guidance councelor called for me two days ago. They said they were going to call back but have not yet. Everyday so far she has called back again but they still have not called back, or responded to any messages. I'll keep you posted.

    Got a letter in the mail today that says I'm accepted to UMKC, step 1 of 3 in applying to the med school, my application has successfully been sent to the med school, and I will be informed directly by them as to whether or not I have an interveiw.(step 2) It also says they have the interviews from December through March, and after an interview you will know if you are accepted or not in April (step 3) Again, I'll keep you posted as to any interview date.

    For some odd reason, it seems as if UMKC is giving out far more interview's than it did last year. Last 50% of those who applied got interviews. Does anyone have statistics for this year....or at the least does anyone know of anyone what has NOT recieved an interview?

    What I heard at my interview was that 290 people will be interviewed (and that there were many qualified applicants but not enough interview slots) and they'll accept 120 people...
  • melodious04melodious04 Registered User Posts: 63 Junior Member
    Where did you get 50% from? That is odd...
    Anyway... UMKC is really big on personality it seems... from what I heard, interviewers are always worried about "missing" perfectly qualified and sincerely passionate people that may not have stood out on the application...

    I mean come on.. everyone was president of every club and was homecoming king/queen... lol It's hard to set yourself apart.

    ... but yeah.. everyone that *I* gave advice too got an interview. :D Ha Ha just joking...

    ... good job you guys. :) Hope you get in.

    It seems that being in state is by far the biggest advantage in applying to the program. Approximately 90% of the positions are reserved for in state applicants, so that leaves ~10-12 spots for people out of state. Any one know how many of those 290 applicants are in state. 75% maybe? That seems like a conservative estimate (217 people). So out of 120, 108 will be in state, of 217 applied. So it seems ( total ball park estimates) that 1 out of every 2 in state applicants will be accepted. I guess I'll just wait and see if I get an interveiw. Best of luck to everyone else applying, Evan

    If i remember correctly i believe this is how it works:

    400 in state applicants
    200 instate interviews
    110-120 instate accepted


    200 out of state applicants
    100 outofstate interviews
    20-30 outofstate accepted

    In in the last two years UMKC has admitted about 140 students each year.

    k...well I am an instate applicant and was kinda concerned because I too haven't had an interview yet. So I called them and they said they are not even close to giving out all the interviews yet. Also, they said they havn't had time to call many people to schedule interviews because the office is shorthanded at the moment.

    My interview is on Feb 9th...(They were going to call me at the end of the week)
  • patelaksharpatelakshar Registered User Posts: 73 Junior Member
    Hey...my interview is also on Feb. 9
    could you e-mail me (my e-mail is my s/n at gmail.com; patelakshar at gmail.com), thx.

    does anyone know what the Toledo Chemistry Exam is? Exacly what does it test?
  • melodious04melodious04 Registered User Posts: 63 Junior Member
    If you have had at least 1 semester of chemistry in high school you are fine.
    I think it is the easiest chemistry test ever invented honestly... they just use it because there are some foreign/home schooled/unique applicants that may have awesome stats but remedial chemistry skills... If I remember correctly, it is just basic questions from HS Chem I and a little bit of algebra.

    Your score doesn't count against or for you. They only look at your scores if the computer says that you have failed....

    You won't. :)

    Just wanted to ask anybody attending the UMKC 6 year med program: I'm a sophomore and was just wondering if you have any suggestions on how to become more competitive for the program.

    Thank You

    Any one think there is an advantage of being from Kansas City, similar to being from in state? Also, I read somewhere that the average ACT was 28, so their are people that have been accepted with much lower ACT scores than that...like 22-24 perhaps. So, they must really put emphisis on who you are as a person.
