    Tips to Answer UMKC Secondary Application Essays

     
    UMKC Secondary Application Tip #1: If you have been negatively affected by COVID-19, we think this is a high priority topic to discuss in the University of Missouri-Kansas City secondary application. If you discuss a challenge, follow these steps:

    • How did you overcome the challenge?
    • What did you learn from this experience?
    • How did this experience impact your pathway to becoming a physician?
    • What will you do differently in the future? OR How will you incorporate what you learned to when you are a practicing physician? 

    UMKC Secondary Application Tip #2: If you did not have a extra-ordinary challenge during COVID-19, you can reflect on the positive ways in which you helped the community. Similarly, you can discuss the following in your University of Missouri secondary application essay response:

    • What did you learn from this experience?
    • What will you do differently in the future?

    UMKC Secondary Application Tip #3: Ideally, you can write a short story or anecdote that exemplifies what you learned. For example, if you volunteered at a COVID-19 testing site, instead of saying “I volunteered at a COVID-19 testing site in Kansas City,” you can write a story of one individual you educated about COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

    UMKC Secondary Application Tip #4: Don’t forget to incorporate a little bit about “Why University of Missouri Kansas City School of Medicine.” You can discuss how the medical school will help you become a physician that serves Missouri and Kansas City patients.
