What impressed you negatively?

"Honestly the student ambassadors did not seem happy to be there. When asked "why did you attend IU" they all replied "in state tuition"" More from this Member | Report Response

"The whole day was very unorganized. Instead of splitting the interviews up into AM/PM we had to go through the entire schedule together. This made the tour very tight and everything overall cramped. The interviews were scheduled at the end of the day and in alphabetical order so I ended up going last. By that time, I had already been waiting for my interview (which lasted barely 10 minutes) for 2.5 hours. The room they put you in is outdated and doesn’t have central air either. We were all sweating in our suits and they had cleared away everything from lunch including the water. By the time my interview came I didn’t even care anymore I just wanted to get out of there. I was not greeted courteously by my interviewees either and they seemed to already ha s preconceived notions of me prior to me walking in the room as it is open file. At the end of the interview they shuttled what was the remainder of us into the admission deans office for “questions and feedback” which was her private office with ethnic trinkets all over... it was a very strange experience. Overall I would say that the school curriculum may be considered “strong” to some.. but they are incredibl set back on everything else. I threw my information packet in the trash as soon as I got home I was so disinterested in their program. All in all it at least gave me practice of perseverance and made my decision of which school to accept easier by one." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview day itself seemed unorganized. The interviewers had access to my file (minus GPA/DAT info) but had clearly not read any of it. There were no ethical questions, no specific questions about my experiences, and the only presentation given was 20 minutes long. I left not knowing much more than I went into the interview knowing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing much- Old buildings may be." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing in particular" More from this Member | Report Response

"facilities were a bit dated. nothing much to do in indy...OOS tuition is insane (unless this is your only acceptance, you really have no justifiable reason to attend as private schools are comparable in price)." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities weren't too impressive." More from this Member | Report Response

"OLD building and clinics" More from this Member | Report Response

"Building is a bit older, kind of drafty" More from this Member | Report Response

"Building is older, but they have made renovations over the past few years." More from this Member | Report Response

"They need to decorate the hallways a little better? That's the best I can come up with." More from this Member | Report Response

"Facilities; extensive PBL; OOS tuition for all 4 years even if your spouse takes up a job in-state" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview process seemed so unorganized and the school location didnt seem that great. The tour guide (a student) was not enthusiastic at all." More from this Member | Report Response

"old facilities" More from this Member | Report Response

"school is expensive" More from this Member | Report Response

"old bldg." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facility is old, but they do have some new clinics. SUPER expensive." More from this Member | Report Response

"Sim clinic and the student giving the tour didnt seem too thrilled with the school. It could have been her personality but she seemed to have some issues with the school but overall she said she liked it there." More from this Member | Report Response

"Wet lab and sim lab are in a "dungeon"; no windows, no life, no hope. Maybe they could paint the walls some happy color??" More from this Member | Report Response

"The building is a little outdated" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, just wish the facilities were newer." More from this Member | Report Response

"Building is kind of old but I'm not sure about the teaching." More from this Member | Report Response

"dont have some random undergrads give us a tour of the campus. they dont know the answers to our questions. please get a dental student to do this next time. 2 day interview was useless. all i did on the 2nd day was a 30 minute interview. and they schedule them for you and i had mine late in the afternoon. waste of time!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The building is really old and needs a serious update" More from this Member | Report Response

"Tour felt like I time warped back to the 70's." More from this Member | Report Response

"as per usual, age of the building, and cost. Students and city aren't too diverse too" More from this Member | Report Response

"Tuition for out-of-state is the same as a private school. They also do not have enough sim-chairs in their basement lab for all of the first and second year students, so most of the time you will be at a bench with a model in your hands. You also have to purchase your instruments instead of renting them, and textbooks are not offered on CD." More from this Member | Report Response

"Now, I know what's their problem! NOnononono~ I know why people say the building looks old!Just re-paint the Dschool building!! That's it! HAHAHAHAHA^^ Nothing special!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was the last one to be interviewed. Most of the admissions people were leaving before I even got to be interviewed. Somewhat unorganized. The interview was grilling, kept asking for more detail on questions. I struggled. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Building is old" More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that all the students said PBL sucks. Didn't get to see some rooms during tour because of testing/grading labwork" More from this Member | Report Response

"students, facilities and chick-fillet " More from this Member | Report Response

"Too many things, but here we go. The dental students were continuously saying, ''don't come here?'' They had about five simulation chairs that were unused collecting dust. Otherwise everybody was practicing to be a dentist using 20 year old technology, consisting of generic ceramic models, and bunsen burners. A dental student overheard us talk about PBL and showed his utter disdain for the lame learning system. No lunch was served. The interviewees had to gather in a crowded makeshift office before the interview, while an arrogant Dr. Kasberg bragged about graduating from Yale, and reiterated how decrepit the school was." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facility is old. Indianapolis feels like a ghost town, even on a Saturday night. The tour of the campus was given by a non-dental IUPUI student who didn't know anything. Cost for out-of-staters is ridiculous." More from this Member | Report Response

"facilties are kinda old, bt still in great shape." More from this Member | Report Response

"They didn't seem very proud of their school, also they start school during the summer- around July I think" More from this Member | Report Response

"facilities old, city seemed empty " More from this Member | Report Response

"Facilities. They are due for a remodel for sure. Wish I could have met Dr. Kasbert or Dean Goldblatt. It would have been nice to meet them and hear what they had to say. " More from this Member | Report Response

"old facilities...and cost is outrageous for out-of-staters. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Some of the facilities are dated, but that was addressed during the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lack of waiting room. Had to stand a lot. The facilities will suffice but are not as nice as other schools. Tour was semi-apathetic. Did not learn much about school from interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"School of Dentistry building in general" More from this Member | Report Response

"After interviewing at other schools I have realized what IU could do to make the experience more pleasant. My interview experience at IU was very short-lived; kind of get-in-get-out type as opposed to an all day informative event. IU lacked a waiting room for interviewees to comfortably sit. As for the actual interview, I felt like they were trying to find negative things rather than positive. My interviews elsewhere were so much better. The tour was optional and the guide was like "so where do you wanna go?" " More from this Member | Report Response

"The labs in the basement, but they really weren't that bad..." More from this Member | Report Response

"The student guide told my group that it's sometimes stressful to teach oneself dentistry with the PBL curriculum." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities. As everyone says, ancient, really out of date. Won't be building anything new anytime soon. I really didn't feel like I wanted to spend four years in that dungeon. Also, a student was crying outside while I waiting for my interview. Overheard some stuff about the PBL. Most students seem to hate it, but acknowledge that they think it makes them better clinicians in the long run. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Starting with Dr. Kasberg, the dean of admissions, the interview 'day' was completely cold and impersonal. Dr. Kasberg was also an interviewer and lacked any personality whatsoever. The facilities at IU are antiquated at best. Students seem disgruntled, unhappy, or just bored - I'm not sure which. My entire interview day was over in less than 30 minutes - I was not offered a tour, just a cursory stop in the admissions office to make sure they have all their paperwork." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities are really old, and the admissions staff said and I quote "We consider ourself a 'B' level school."" More from this Member | Report Response

"As I was waiting to leave after the first day of the weekend interview I talked to some students and they said that they were unhappy there and to only go to IUPUI if it's the only school that accepts you. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour guide, a student, said that PBL-based curriculum is stressful. It's like teaching yourself how to do dentistry." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students I talked to seemed frustrated with PBL." More from this Member | Report Response

"the city is small and the cost" More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities are old and cramped. Learning is entirely PBL with no clinicals until 3rd and 4th years." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is kinda old, but no big deal." More from this Member | Report Response

"The 4th year students were expressing their utmost desire to "get the hell out!" including the student interviewing me. I found it odd that a dentist wasn't on my panel. The third lady on my panel seemed not at all interested. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Building and facilities look old." More from this Member | Report Response

"Facilities and location exceeded my expectations. The interview was the most relax I ended up having. Again, students did not seem generally happy." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish there was a better use of time for the interviews, longer discussions and more information presented. I didn't learn much from the website or from the interview day. I understand that there is a huge amount of change going on at the school and this may be a contributor." More from this Member | Report Response

"Good program" More from this Member | Report Response

"average school" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school seems fine, even though the facilities aren't the greatest. You will still receive an excellent education at the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"loved the school and loved the people i met there" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great faculty... friendly students..." More from this Member | Report Response

"It kind of seemed like "a dental school"- meaning there wasn't really anything that stood out or made me say "WOW"." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really liked the faculty and the staff of the school. I am not too sure about the location and the old facilities." More from this Member | Report Response

"Was not my top choice going into the interview but after talking to faculty/students and touring Indianapolis I could see myself attending here. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Pretty good school, I feel Indiana kind of gets a bad rep but overall I kind of liked the school, more so then I thought I would going in. The student giving me the tour didnt seem to like PBL but its only about 30% of your curriculum unlike a couple of schools that have 100% PBL. The cost of living there is really cheap, which is great but cost to go to the school for an out-of-state resident is a little high for what you actually get. The facilities are a little older but they do have some newer clinics. Research opportunities seem plentiful and the actual clinical experience you get seems to be really good. Dr. Kasberg also was really friendly and made you feel welcome." More from this Member | Report Response

"Went into the interview not expecting much (not initially high on the list), but left very pleased and very interested in attending IU. Great school." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a good feeling coming out of the interview, it was very relaxed. Two weeks later I got the call I'm in." More from this Member | Report Response

"it is a great school and anyone would be lucky to get accepted there." More from this Member | Report Response

"very laid back!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I really did enjoy this interview it was very laid back and the group of four that I was put in was really nice. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Not as bad of a school as people make it out to be on here. New school in 8-10 years!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Kasberg came in to talk to 4 of us before the inty's, laid out 3 positives and negatives of the school, told us that we were the best of the applicant pool, told us his timeline on decision making, gave us tips on how to improve our answers to his question (which the panel would subsequently ask us). School doesn't have a caf in the building, or elevators either" More from this Member | Report Response

"I am glad I checked out the school for myself and verified that the negative posts were rumors. Except for the cost. And while the facilities certainly aren't "new", they have just as much technology as any other school and graduate very competent, skilled dentists. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Yeah! At first glance, the building looks a little bit old! However, this could be just resolved by painting a small portion of it again! That's very easy! In fact, their D facilty inside is great! They also have newly built perio department(endo??), and the entire things were awesome! Moreover, they have their own D-building, and it's impressively huge! Overall, the Indiana university is a very big one. Local people know it as IUPUI, which is Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis. Living cost is reasonable, and diverse cultural life is procured! Their student to chair ratio is really ideal, too! Believe it or not, there are many rumors. HAHA^^" More from this Member | Report Response

"Good school even though you may read bad things. The school is also hella expensive. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Despite the fact that I felt like I was giving the interview, I had a great experience. Everyone was very friendly and the students were really down-to-earth. I also love Indianapolis..it is a big city without any traffic." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had known how bad the school really was. Hindsight, I wouldn't have wasted my time and money going there otherwise. Extremely disappointing." More from this Member | Report Response

"I did a two-day interview. It was a good experience, but the thing that stands out most was the number of hypothetical situations that were posed during my interview. It felt like a grilling rather than a conversation, which I'm okay with, but it's definitely not my preference." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great interview, very laid back conversation. It seemed like I was expected to ask as many questions as they did." More from this Member | Report Response

"We started in an office, the Dean comes in to give a pep-talk and is very nice, but tells us to go in state if we get in because it's less expensive, then the financial aid director came in, then we went on a short tour, and the interview was about 30 minutes, with a faculty member, 4th year, and a admissions staff person, I got a chance to asked a lot of questions, it was easy going, but very short- maybe 2 hours at most" More from this Member | Report Response

"usualy interview questions, but it was not too stressfull." More from this Member | Report Response

"very relaxed. Low stress setting. Everything was what you would have expected. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall experience was good. The interview was relaxed. IU is expensive for out-of-staters and facilities are old. Seems like a good school....but for the price? Also, I found Indianapolis a little depressing of a city, though it does have a small town feel to it. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I think it went well. Key word, think. I didn't come out of it feeling like I rocked their worlds, but also didn't feel like I bombed it. Some other people I've talked to felt the same way. Interview was pretty stress-free. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview process was pretty short. I seriously spent more time waiting than actual interview stuff (financial aid, interview, tour). The actual interview was fairly laid back. Fortunately, I knew one of my interviewers personally. Overall, the school is OK, but others seem more appealing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very low stress and laid back, kind people" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview experience was very short. You arrive and wait in the admissions room. The order of events are financial aid presentation, interview, and then optional tour. Quite simple. Interviews lasted about 30 minutes and were panel style with two faculty members and a student. My overall experience was not as positive as I hoped. I guess I was unfortunate to get some tough interviewers. Other schools were much laid back. " More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview experience was exceptional. The school seems to fit my personality very well. I was impressed with Dr. Kasberg, the faculty members that interviewed me and the students I met. The best thing about IUSD that I've unfortunately not encountered at other schools is that they are real people. They don't try to impress your with latest gadgets or new lab facility, but instead they tell you what the strengths and weaknesses are of their school and let you decide for yourself. A lot of schools are very unprofessional--put down their competitor so that you may pick them instead of the "other" school. IUSD is classy and first-rate!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very laidback. There were two faculties, one of them asked me questions while the other faculty just stared at me as if I was from outerspace. Then the dental student stepped into the room halfway through the interview - basically late. She was cute too!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was done by two admissions committee members and a student. They were all very nice. They ask specific things from you personal history, so if you included it make sure you can talk about it. Especially research experience. They were very positive. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Two faculty versus me. No original questions - just standard a-monkey-could-recite-these interview questions. Dr. Kasberg was cold and dissinterested. The other interviewer was friendly but said little." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewers were so incredibly nice. It really was just a conversation. I don't think dentistry even came up." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall it went well. Everyone there was really nice. But having some students tell me that they werent happy there, kind of made me feel like it wasnt a good place. But of course I know you cant judge a school on what a few students think, but I never had that anywhere else.. So I guess it is...what it is." More from this Member | Report Response

"great! I am praying to get into this dental program at IU." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview process was great. From the pre-interview "warm up" with Robert Kasberg to the actual interview. It was with 2 faculty and 1 student. They asked a lot of questions about my application and my dedication to dentistry. It was very laid back and we just chatted about my application. They were all very nice and it made for a great experience. My cousin went to Indiana for dental school, so I knew a lot about PBL and how the school runs. They seemed happy that I knew about PBL so they didn't have to explain it to me. My cousin said there was never a shortage of patients, so that is a plus. He said that they clinically train you very well. I would be honored to be accepted at Indiana." More from this Member | Report Response

"it was an awesome experience, the school was nice the students were great and the staff was amazing...i would be honored to be accepted" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was really short. They allotted 35 minutes for the interview and it only took 15 minutes. I figured that if they wanted to admit you, they would get to know you better." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really enjoyed my experience at IU. They were very nice and answered any questions that I had. I hope I get in. This is my #1 choice. Don't worry about the interview too much. Just prepare ahead of time what you want to say for the questions that some students have been asked here on SDN and you will be just fine." More from this Member | Report Response

"I did not have a good feeling coming out of my interview as if they really weren't interested in me. However, I did get my acceptance letter in December. I was shocked!" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was friendly and hopefully I got in!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt pretty okay about it. I dont want to discourge anyone with my difficulty level being so high. They are really nice, friendly, and they make it a point not to be nervous. Just make sure you realize three people will be in a room observing you and taking notes." More from this Member | Report Response

"awesome, laid-back, not stressful in the least. if you're an out-of-state, take a taxi to the school from your hotel (only 5 bucks). ask Dr. Kasberg questions, he's there to help you out, not trip you up." More from this Member | Report Response

"the interview was 1 student, 1 faculty, 1 dentist. it was pretty laid back. the faculty member didnt seem to interested in the process, but the student and dentist were very nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"This was my first interview so I was very nervous and worried about it. But the interview is VERY laid back-more like a conversation. Interview was also fairly short." More from this Member | Report Response

"interview and tour" More from this Member | Report Response

"I got there way too early and had to sit in the library for an hour, feeling really out of place and I kept getting more and more worried about the interview while I was waiting. The interview was really laid-back though." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very laid back, don't be nervous, the interviewers are really nice and all they want is to get to know you and ask you why you want to be a dentist" More from this Member | Report Response

"Wonderful.. The Director of Admissions left me with a very positive note regarding the school. He was very helpful and the interviewers said that they were Impressed by the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"it was a very positive experience..they do not emphasize heavily on scores but mostly on your personality and other things you have to offer like being well-rounded" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, they the interviewers were nice, however, they really didn't ask me a lot of questions, and did seem to like they read my file thoroughly. " More from this Member | Report Response

"GREAT! INTERVIEW WAS MORE LIKE A CONVERSATION THAN AN EVALUATION" More from this Member | Report Response

"it was my first interview- hence the stress level...overall, the interview process was very short..we spoke with the admissions coordinator before the interview, the interviews lasted from 30mins to 40mins...and then had a student give us a tour. " More from this Member | Report Response

"iniana was my 1st choice and now i am sure of it. the inteview was very informative and i was left with no questions about the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Thoroughly enjoyable, about as low-stress as you could hope a grad school interview to be." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was my first interview--hence the stress level. I was impressed with the program, and the students seemed happy. Indianapolis is a great little ciy." More from this Member | Report Response

"The overall interview was laid back and more like a conversation with an aunt or uncle. Indiana university is located in a beautiful, clean, and safe city. I participated in the PBL sessions and those need to be experienced if you decide to go to IUPUI" More from this Member | Report Response
