What impressed you negatively?

"Only two students present on the student panel." More from this Member | Report Response

"Location" More from this Member | Report Response

"The lack of interest, engagement, or facial expression some of the interviewers show (2/4). Those interviewers were un-relatable and seemed like they were just there to read off of a question bank. Sure, it may be to gauge how you react during an interview, but interviews are already extremely stressful. This can hinder an already nervous student to show their personality and convey their interest in the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The weather in Milwaukee. It's in the midwest so I guess you have to accept that." More from this Member | Report Response

"1 of the interviewers was rude out of the 4" More from this Member | Report Response

"How the interview process was not geared toward getting to know you personally. Although it was open file, some people were reading it while you were sitting in front of them on their computer. By spending 10 minutes with 4 different people doesn't allow them to know you as a person, rather than file with your name on it." More from this Member | Report Response

"It seems they try to somewhat have a balance of personalities in the interview committee; one of the interviewers seems to take the "tough, stern-faced" role; I think they do it to see how you react." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really, I just wanted to stay a little longer and look around. Since it was such an anticipated day!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The way they did the interviews was too rushed. I don't know why they do it that way. I am not too excited about Milwaukee, not the worst place, but definitely not the greatest place." More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't really like that way the interviews were set up. It honestly felt like speed dating and made me and many other students relatively uncomfortable. Also, 2/4 interviewers were almost verging on terrible. One apparently acted like he was falling asleep during a colleague's interview the same day (apparently he does it to gauge your reaction... but really only looks like an inconsiderate ass), and another interview was about as dull as a butter knife and had absolutely no interpersonal skills." More from this Member | Report Response

"We didnt get to really see the clinics very much during our tour. I also wasnt a huge fan of the "student panel." I personally would have liked the lunch with current students from D1-D4." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing, may be the weather- cold" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was kind of boring. I know they aren't supposed to be fun, but they had us all in one room, kinda small, with nothing to do other than talk with each other. The students weren't really enthusiastic about the school. I feel they could have sold their school to us alot better." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities are not as amazing as everybody makes them out to be. They are new and clean, that is probably the biggest difference between them and other schools.

What are your general comments?

"Went into it thinking I wouldn't like it because of the location, but the school itself made me feel like I could seriously consider attending, should I be accepted." More from this Member | Report Response

"The set-up of the interview day was great and ran very smoothly." More from this Member | Report Response

"I loved marquette. i hope i get in!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Seems like a good learning environment overall although the school itself seems to blend into surrounding downtown areas of Milwuakee. I was not used to this so I found it odd. Also, go to the Milwuakee Ale House to eat.... great food, beer, and service!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I had a good impression of the place. My suggestions for interviewing: be prepared to answer a form of the most typically asked questions; and remember there may be a person purposely trying to throw you off your game to see how you react; they want to get a good impression of how you react under stress, so stay calm." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is a good place for students who are hard workers and like to also have fun. So there was a great balance to the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Marquette no longer has a biochemistry course (now a pre-req) in response to students' feedback. Basic science courses are taken on the main campus with other graduates and some undergrads. The school is also looking to expand the number seats it offers." More from this Member | Report Response

"excellent facility with an excellent curriculum, but two of the interviewers really put a bad taste in my mouth. I mean, if those are the best individuals that the admissions committee has to sell their school to students, that really says something about their faculty makeup (in my opinion)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school with great people" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great School and Im not just saying that because Im in-state. Ive had a ton of interviews and I can say that Marquette honestly is a great school nationwide!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Wow. This school is legit. It's now high on my list." More from this Member | Report Response

";P" More from this Member | Report Response

"loved it; just got accepted and can't wait to attend!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school i loved the atmosphere and loved the campus." More from this Member | Report Response

"I absolutely loved milwaukee. Take time to walk downtown and over to the lake. The interview seemed a little structured. My interviewer had a list of questions he just rambled off. I wasn't exactly ready for that. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, it was really good experience. I received my acceptance letter a few days ago, so I'm excited." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a comfortable experience. Overall the questions were predictable, yet there were a few suprises, so those caught me off guard. Otherwise, pretty relaxed." More from this Member | Report Response

"I got there about 15 minutes early. Then I was brought to a room where we held the interview. After all 8 of my group was done interviewing two 4th year dental students gave us a tour of the building and then took us to lunch. It was a great experience to actually talk to students and learn about how they think about their school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Waited in office for about an hour. They took my picture. After an hour I was escorted out to another room and interviewed mono a mono. Immediately after I went a tour of the facility and had lunch." More from this Member | Report Response

"I enjoyed my entire visit. The interviewers were not intimidating at all and the tour guides made it sound like a great place to live and learn. It's definitely a top choice." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was my first interview so I was pretty nervous, the interview was somewhat relaxed so it wasn't too bad" More from this Member | Report Response

"There were a lot of interviewees there at the same time. It is very organized because they have appointments every half hour. The interview is first, followed by a tour, and then lunch with the students that gave you a tour. Everything was very relaxed! Don't stress too much. The interviewers said straight out that they are not trying to make it nerve racking, they just want to get to know you." More from this Member | Report Response

"First interview, give me an idea the level of questions and things schools are looking for in candidates" More from this Member | Report Response

"Solid, I thought other schools I have interviewed at were nicer and seemed to really want us. Marquette didn't seem like they cared too much." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very exited to say that I've got accepted after a two-day day interview. On the first day, I went through a radiology examination and a personal interview. The second day was an 8-hr bench test (Molar crown cutting, MOD, Upper class-II, Wax-up a pre prepared tooth) and Radiology. Other questions asked: 1) Tell me about yourself. 2) About my dental experience in USA. 3) How did you prepare for Part-1? 4) Will you relocate if you get accepted? 5) After completing DDS will you go for a private practice or work in a hospital? 6) Will you go back to your country or stay in USA? " More from this Member | Report Response

"it was a great experience, i really do hope I get in (#1). Get there ahead of time, converse with the students who are waiting with you. And next interviews making sure not to wear black, I felt I was at a funeral!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Excellent. I was so impressed, it is my new number one. Our tour guide was hot, and there were a ton of hotties in the program. I would go here over the previously mentioned schools for many reasons. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I think the interview went really well. I interviewed with two members of the admissions committee and they were both nice. I did not feel like they were trying to make me nervous. The interview was very conversational. After the interview I went on a tour with a current student and one of the other prospective students. It was nice to tour in a small group so I could ask more questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was good. Laid back though my interviewers were hard to get a conversation going with. School is really pretty and new." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very informal conversation lead by two faculty instructors. A two way conversation about my history and about marquette dental school. The atmosphere was ncie." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities, program and people there really impressed me, it could have emerged as my top choice." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was super comfortable and I think it showed (i got in) I went on the tour with the students, and they offer a lunch afterwards but I declined and went home ( my feet were kiling from the heels i had on!!)" More from this Member | Report Response

" It is all depends on who you get, the interview was very laid back, and friendly for me. I really enjoyed being there, questions were not personal, faculty just wanted to find out more about my personality and make sure it is what I want to do as a career." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was surprised to find out how much free time the student who gave the tour had" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great dental school after the interview this is my number one choice" More from this Member | Report Response

"i was even more impressed by the school than i thought i would be. my student tour guide was really honest about the things she liked and disliked about the school, which was helpful. the interview was harder than other ones i had been to but the day was overall a good experience."
