Selection Factors: What KCU College of Osteopathic Medicine Looks for in a Candidate
When a medical school reviews applicants, it considers a variety of factors. We discuss all the minimum requirements for admission below, but here we’ll be discussing a broader selection process. Beyond the numbers, what kind of students does KCU COM hope to teach? What does it take to demonstrate “fit” with KCU COM? Are some aspects of your application weighed more than others?
The admissions committee provides both specific and general information on what makes the ideal applicant to KCU COM. Let’s take a look at what it takes to craft a competitive candidacy and truly stand out.
Under-Represented and Non-Traditional Students
The Kansas City University College of Osteopathic Medicine intentionally and actively enrolls promising non-traditional and under-represented students in its DO program. If you come from an under-represented background in medicine or are pursuing medical school as a non-traditional applicant, this is a school that takes a genuine interest in providing you opportunities to succeed.
If you fall into these applicant categories, look for opportunities to tell your story and share your promise during the secondary application and interview. This could mean discussing how you turned adversity into opportunity, what you’ve learned about medicine and healthcare through your unique experiences, or how your motivation to pursue a career in osteopathic medicine has developed.
MCAT and GPA vs. Entire Application
MCAT scores and GPA are great overall predictors of an applicant’s success in medical school, but they aren’t the only factors that influence admissions decisions. In fact, at Kansas City University, your entire application is considered holistically when making an admissions decision.
This means that while a strong academic record is still very important, it is possible to overcome lower numbers in these areas if the rest of your application demonstrates evidence of your potential to succeed in medical school and as an osteopathic doctor.
(We discuss Kansas City University COM’s required MCAT and GPA and class MCAT/GPA averages in the sections below.)
Here are KCU COM’s recommended qualifiers:
- Commitment of more than two years to an organization/club/job
- Domestic/international mission trip
- Involvement with a minimum of four community service organizations
- Research experience
- Minimum two leadership roles in clubs/community organizations/work experience
- Work experience in a health care field (EMT, nurse, etc)
- Volunteer in a health care related setting
- Minimum 80 hours of shadowing a physician
This section contains the minimum requirements for admission, as stated by the KCU COM admissions committee.
All applicants must receive a bachelor’s degree from an accreditated undergraduate institution. The minimum GPA, MCAT, and coursework requirements listed below must also be met.
Minimum GPA and MCAT Requirements
The admissions committee at the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences College of Osteopathic Medicine does not state required GPA or MCAT metrics.
MCAT scores must be no more than three years older than the expected matriculation date.
To get an idea of what is considered competitive for applicants to KCU COM, take a look at the “Class Profile and Admissions Statistics” section below.
The following courses must be completed with a “C” or higher.
- Physics – 8 semester hours (12 quarter hours)
- Chemistry – 13 semester hours (19.5 quarter hours)
- Biochemistry – 3 semester hours (4.5 quarter hours)
- Biological Sciences – 12 semester hours (18 quarter hours)
Pre-med Clinical Experience
Applicants are required to submit a letter of recommendation from a physician with whom they have shadowed, volunteered, or worked. The school does not state a required minimum for clinical hours.
In the “Selection Factors” section above, we go into the recommendations of the admissions committee at KCU COM. Admissions lists 80 or more hours of physician shadowing, work experience in healthcare, and healthcare-related volunteering as elements of a competitive application. (IMA’s Healthcare and Pre-med Internships Abroad offers internships that work perfectly with KCU COM’s recommended experiences — plus, the program includes medical school admissions consulting!)
We recommend 100-150 hours of clinical experience to craft a competitive medical school application. For more on this topic, see How Many Clinical Hours Do I Need For Medical School?
Letters of Recommendation
KCU accepts letters of recommendation through AACOMAS, though you may be able to submit them directly to the admissions office.
You must submit at least two letters when you apply.
One letter must be from your undergraduate pre-med committee. If your undergraduate institution doesn’t have a pre-med committee, a letter from a science faculty member is sufficient.
One letter must be from a physician.
You are permitted to submit additional letters of recommendation. All letters must be dated within two years of your expected matriculation date.
A good letter of recommendation comes from someone who knows you well and can speak to your unique strengths, motivation, and ability to succeed in medical school.
You should request letters of recommendation from individuals who can attest to your academic abilities as well as personal qualities such as teamwork, perseverance, and compassion.
If you choose to submit additional letters of recommendation, make sure they add value to your application and don’t repeat information that is already included elsewhere. Submitting additional letters is a great way to highlight diversity of experiences and strengths through the perspectives of different recommenders.

Choose DO: How to Get Into Osteopathic Medicine Programs
If you’re looking into Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences College of Osteopathic Medicine, it can be helpful to understand the general requirements and recommendations for how to get into DO programs across the country. The information in the section will help you focus your application and pre-med experiences and create a well-rounded application for KCU COM and other schools of osteopathic medicine.
For this section, we’ll be looking at the organization Choose DO. Choose DO is a national organization for aspiring osteopathic doctors and is associated with the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine.
First, let’s talk about what the average successful DO applicant achieves in their academics.
The average GPAs for students entering DO programs in recent years are:
- 2018 – Overall GPA: 3.53, Non-Science: 3.65, Science: 3.43
- 2019 – Overall GPA: 3.57, Non-Science: 3.67, Science: 3.51
- 2020 – Overall GPA: 3.54, Non-Science: 3.64, Science: 3.45
- 2021 – Overall GPA: 3.59, Non-Science: 3.69, Science: 3.51
The average MCAT scores for DO students are:
- 2018 – Total MCAT: 503.1 (PSBB: 126.5, BBLS: 126.2, CPBS: 125.8, CARS: 125.4)
- 2019 – Total MCAT: 504.25 (PSBB: 126.78, BBLS: 126.26, CPBS: 125.9, CARS: 125.32)
- 2020 – Total MCAT: 504.31 (PSBB: 126.92, BBLS: 126.29, CPBS: 125.89, CARS: 125.20)
- 2021 – Total MCAT: 504.89 (PSBB: 127.14, BBLS: 126.47, CPBS: 125.97, CARS: 125.31)
The metrics above help show what makes for a competitive application in general. But these numbers vary for each school. School-specific information can usually be found on the school’s website or in IMA’s Medical School Guides. (In case you skipped it, check out the “Admissions Statistics” section above for statistics on KCU COM’s entering classes.)
Choose DO lists personal qualities that successful applicants share. According to their website, these qualities include:
- Shadowing experience
- Knowledge of osteopathic medicine
- Motivated to practice osteopathic medicine
- Having a diverse background
- A history of many and diverse extracurricular activities
- Clinical Experience
- Leadership experience
- A history of community service
- Strong interpersonal skills
Additionally, applicants should possess a bachelor’s degree from an accreditated university and have completed one year of Biology, English, and Physics and two years of Chemistry.
Choose DO also provides a pre-med roadmap for aspiring DO physicians, from pre-college on.
Some key points from the roadmap are:
- Before college, meet with your school counselor to craft an academic plan (and enroll in a pre-health track if offered). Maintain a good GPA and take AP classes to prepare for more difficult coursework down the line. Begin volunteering with healthcare-related organizations and explore summer health programs offered by colleges nearby.
- In year one of college, meet with a pre-health advisor, start taking pre-requisite coursework, and join pre-health organizations. Maintain a competitive GPA and develop effective study habits. This is also a time to begin studying the osteopathic profession and philosophy through articles, journals, and books. Throughout all years of college, you should be exploring healthcare and pre-med internships, researching medical schools, and developing a strong relationship with your school’s science faculty.
- In year two, continue the pre-med track described above. You can begin developing a financial plan to attend medical school and gain experience in public speaking and leadership. This is also a good time to start looking into research opportunities at your undergraduate institution.
- In year three, you should continue all of the above. But it’s time to start preparing for the MCAT. Participating in undergraduate research opportunities, working on your medical school application, and gaining quality pre-med experience is also essential at this time. In the spring semester of your third year, you should take the MCAT exam and submit your applications to medical schools.
- In your final year of college, you should continue the above (maintain a competitive GPA, continue clinical experiences and volunteering, and complete pre-requisite coursework). You will also attend medical school interviews if invited. This is a good time to consider post-application plans.
- After college, if you are a non-traditional student or reapplying, continue to gain clinical experience and consider taking upper-level science courses in a post-bac program. If your undergraduate coursework or MCAT scores are more than three years old, retake the MCAT and enroll in a post-bac program.
AACOMAS Primary Application and KCU Secondary Application
When applying to medical schools, you first need to complete and submit a primary application. The primary application is sent to the medical schools you choose to apply to. Upon receiving your primary application and verifying that you meet the school’s minimum admissions requirement, you will be invited to complete a secondary application.
The American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine Application Service (AACOMAS) is the primary application for most osteopathic medical schools. The secondary application is school-specific, crafted by the admissions committee to help determine if you’re a good fit for the school.
Secondary applications usually contain a few multiple-choice and/or yes/no questions in addition to essay prompts.
Kansas City University Medical School Secondary Application: Essay Prompts, Sample Answers, and Advice
The secondary medical school application is your opportunity to elaborate on your accomplishments, describe your motivation for a career in medicine, explain why you want to attend that specific school, and more. This is your chance to make a case for your candidacy beyond the numbers.
When writing your essays, remember that the admissions committee will be looking for evidence of your:
- Academic excellence
- Commitment to osteopathic medicine
- Understanding of the osteopathic profession
- Interpersonal skills
- Service to others
However, the school is also looking to gain a deeper insight into your character, principles, ambitions, and the unique experiences that have shaped you into the person you are today.
When writing your essay responses, be sure to:
- Answer the prompt
- Be concise
- Write in a way that is true to your voice
- Use proper grammar and punctuation
The medical school application process is highly competitive. To get an edge, it is important to put your best foot forward in your essays. Here are some tips for writing compelling essay responses that will make you stand out from the rest.
Focus on telling a story that demonstrates who you are and what you can bring to the table as a medical student. This can be done by sharing a personal experience or talking about a time when you made a difference in someone’s life. It is important to be specific and paint a picture that the admissions committee can visualize.
Next, be sure to proofread your essays carefully. Typos or grammatical errors can give the impression that you are careless or not detail-oriented, which is not the message you want to send as someone who wants to study medicine. Take the time to edit your work and make sure it’s error-free before hitting submit.
Remember to use concrete examples. Whenever possible, use specifics to illustrate your points. This will help your essays feel more real and relatable, and it will also give the admissions committee a better sense of who you are as a person.
Finally, don’t be afraid to let your personality shine through in your essays. Being yourself is one of the best ways to stand out from the rest of the applicants. The admissions committee wants to get to know you, so don’t be afraid to let your unique voice shine through in your essays. Share your hobbies, interests, and anything else that makes you unique. By doing so, you’ll be sure to leave a lasting impression. (Be tactful and organized with how you share these things — prioritize clear responses that directly answer the prompt.)
How to Prepare for Secondary Essays
Given that every application is different, and medical schools generally change up their secondary application each year, how can you prepare?
To start, you can familiarize yourself with the types of questions that are usually asked. Some recurring themes in secondary medical school applications include:
- Why do you want to be an osteopathic doctor?
- Why do you want to attend our school?
- Describe a time when you faced a challenge. How did you overcome it?
- How will you contribute to an inclusive learning environment/why is diversity important in medicine?
We’ll showcase some strategies for answering specific questions in the section below, where we’ll look at the essay prompts from the previous KCU COM application cycle. You can also refer to our other Medical School Guides for more sample answer to real-world secondary application questions.
It can help to create a list of experiences and accomplishments you can draw from when prompted to write about topics such as these. Outline all the things you want the admissions committee to know about you. Prioritize impactful pre-med experiences, insightful examples personal motivations, and anything else that speaks to your qualifications for medical school. Not only will this help you save time when completing secondary applications, but it will also give you a foundation to start from so you can be sure to touch on all the key points you want the admissions committee to know about you.
Once you’ve created your outline, take a look at all the essay prompts and decide where to include the information. This will help you be strategic with how you use your space and ensure that you’re sharing the most important information about yourself with the admissions committee at the right time.
Finally, for each school, make a list of programs, values, and other things that excite you about the school. This will help you write more genuine and tailored responses to secondary essay prompts, which is always a good impression to make. While you don’t want to simply restate information from the school’s website, knowing the school’s institutional identity and what they look for in a candidate should guide how you focus your responses.
Now, let’s take a look at the essay prompts from Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences College of Osteopathic Medicine’s 2021-2022 application cycle.
What are you currently doing to maintain your academic knowledge? (2500 characters or less)
There are a few things to consider with this prompt. First, they want to know how you’re keeping up with your academic knowledge. This refers to things like keeping up with current medical literature or taking continuing education courses. But it could also refer to anything else that you’re doing to stay sharp and up-to-date in your field.
Second, they want to know why you’re doing it. What’s your motivation for maintaining your academic knowledge? Is it simply to keep your skills sharp, or is there something more? Be sure to share your motivation with the admissions committee so they can see that you’re not just going through the motions—you’re actively engaged in your field and committed to lifelong learning.
Finally, they want to know how this will help you as a future physician. What skills or knowledge are you hoping to gain by maintaining your academic knowledge? How will this help you in your future career? Be specific and share concrete examples with the admissions committee so they can see how your current activities are preparing you for a successful career in medicine.
Here’s a sample response:
I’m currently working on my Master’s degree in Public Health. My program is focused on epidemiology and biostatistics, so I’m taking coursework in those areas to maintain my academic knowledge. I’m also keeping up with current medical literature by reading journals and articles relevant to my field of study.
I’m doing this because I want to be able to provide the best possible care to my future patients. I want to be able to understand and use the latest research so I can make evidence-based decisions about treatment.
However, my primary motivation for pursuing post-bac education before medical school is to gain an exceptional amount of experience with medical concepts so I can be better positioned to explain medical practices to my patients. I am drawn to the osteopathic principle of involving the patient’s values and life in the decision-making process when providing treatment. I believe without the ability to clearly and effectively explain medical concepts, this process would be hindered.
By pursuing my Master’s degree, I’m gaining the knowledge and skills I need to fully engage in KCU COM’s DO program while staying focused on what I hope to achieve — to engage in meaningful dialogue with patients and provide care with truly informed consent.
Describe a time when you had a personal failure. How did you move on from that experience? (2500 characters or less)
This prompt is asking for a time when you failed and how you handled it. How you behave in the face of adversity, what you learn from challenges, and how you overcome setbacks are all important questions for future physicians.
When you’re brainstorming your response to this prompt, think about a time when you failed and what you learned from it. What did you do to pick yourself up and move on? How did that experience shape how you approach challenges now? Ideally, your situation is related to medicine or your journey to becoming a physician, but it doesn’t have to be. As long as you can draw connections between your experience and your future career, any failure will suffice.
The key to questions about adversity is to focus on what you learned from the situation. Admissions committees want to see that you’re resilient and can learn from your mistakes through self-reflection. They also want to see that you understand how your actions impact others. When you’re writing your response, be sure to focus on these positive aspects of your experience so the admissions committee can see that you’re ready for the challenges of a career in medicine.
We are often too busy to plan future activities. Describe a time when you were so busy you had to react to situations rather than plan for them. (2500 characters or less)
Sticking to a pre-med roadmap, acing the MCAT, crafting a competitive application — all of these make for a great applicant, but they don’t communicate your ability to handle the daily, real-time demands of a future in medicine.
This question is designed to assess your ability to handle stress, work under pressure, and make decisions quickly. As a future physician, you will be expected to handle a lot of responsibility and make decisions quickly, sometimes with limited information.
With this in mind — while it shouldn’t be the focus of your response — acknowledging the daily challenges of being a physician will help communicate to admissions a key strength: you know what you’re getting into. Draw from your time shadowing physicians. You can cite experiences from programs like IMA’s healthcare and pre-med internships, where pre-med students work with healthcare professionals who deliver care with limited resources.
For the bulk of your response, think about a time when you had to make a decision without all the information you needed, or when you had to address a situation suddenly. Try to describe the situation clearly without getting bogged down by the details. The important part of this answer is how you handled the situation.
Healthcare and Pre-Med Internships
Pre-med clinical experience is a crucial component of building a competitive medical school application and preparing for the realities of medical school and medical practice. But with so many options for how to gain clinical experience, it can be overwhelming to know where to start.
Our healthcare internships combine physician shadowing, service-learning, 24/7 mentorship, admissions consulting, and more — all while helping some of the most medically underserved populations in the world. Our not-for-profit model allows us to prioritize providing an affordable, high-quality, and impactful experience, and our students have gone on to be accepted at top medical schools across the country.
If you’re looking for a pre-med internship that will help you stand out on your med school applications and prepare you for a career in medicine, look no further than IMA’s healthcare internships.
