Current students really love it there, and they manage to have fun and learn dentistry all at the same time. Dr. Lippman was so nice! I knew from this forum that it was going to be a pleasant interview, but I never expected what actually happened. VERY conversational. Facilities were brand new, and spectacular; the pre-clinical lab blew away everywhere else I've been so far. " More from this Member | Report Response

I liked how they said that the school's facilities are at the forefront, the model that other institutions mimic. They do their best to help you succeed. Theres free tutors!

"Out of all the schools I interviewed at I really liked the set up for their sim lab-Instead of being set in rows the seats are across each other-I'd rather face other students instead of facing a monitor.

What impressed you negatively?

"overall everything was pretty nice" More from this Member | Report Response

"The dean of admissions is very paranoid about COVID. She makes you sit 15ft across the table, in a mask, and it is extremely hard to talk loud while breathing in a mask. The conditions she puts you in set you up for failure. Was by far the worst interview experience. The interview was not conversational at all, she just asks you questions and doesn't genuinely try to get to know you. It's her first year as dean of admissions, so seems like she's changing up their reputation for being an easy interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was in the library and a student yelled out “don’t come here, it suck”. We didn’t know if she was serious or not." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities are older than what I thought" More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing! loved Nova! Wish their website was more user-friendly" More from this Member | Report Response

"Most of the process. They havent put any efforts to go over detail program or financial program at all. So disappointing and even Dr Lippman used the same stories at least for few years as I know. They need to improve and take more serious intervention on their interview day." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview was at the end of the tour which I did not like" More from this Member | Report Response

"I am not sure if their academics are good." More from this Member | Report Response

"Location" More from this Member | Report Response

"If you're going to stay at Marriot Plantation. Make sure you make an appointment w/ them, so they can come pick u up when u land." More from this Member | Report Response

"One of the D4s giving the tour was a little cocky. He made it seem like he had it all figured out from the beginning." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was the last interviewee out of 16 people, so it was terrible having to anxiously wait hours for my interview. Even the interviewers seemed like they wanted to get it over with as it lasted only 10-15 minutes." More from this Member | Report Response

"It's very far from home and very expensive." More from this Member | Report Response

"students and faculty maybe TOO laid-backed. The interview was hard to" More from this Member | Report Response

"Sim lab was underwhelming, weren't shown any of the clinics" More from this Member | Report Response

"Didn't get to see the clinic during tour" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was very relaxed which eased my stress, but a little different than normal." More from this Member | Report Response

"How mediocre the school seemed" More from this Member | Report Response

"How ignorant Americans are. I told them that I immigrated to Canada when I was 9, and then they asked me "Did you speak English before you came to Canada? your English is very good." I didn’t travel to Florida so they could comment on my English, I felt like getting up and leaving at that point. Also, the tour was really unorganized, we were in the middle of eating when they kicked us out of the room." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer made up his mind about me right from the start. He made little effort to get to know me throughout the interview. I felt like I was being put through a conveyor belt of questions. (He even told us prior to the interview: "I can figure out who you are in 2 minutes". Sadly, I don't think he was joking.)" More from this Member | Report Response

"That it was a long waiting time for us in-staters. By the time, my interview my enthusiasm was kind of low." More from this Member | Report Response

"Same as other posts. Since D1's give the tour, its a little disorganized. They weren't sure about the timing and as a result we had to rush through our tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"Tour guides were too chill. They didn't seem all that excited about the school. None of the current students we walked past said good luck :P" More from this Member | Report Response

"heard VERY few positive things about the school's academic program (extremely vague "our students specialize"). Mentioned great weather and atmosphere, but come on man what about your stats!! Brought up why other private schools might not be better than Nova (WHO DOES THAT?!>!>! PROFESSIONAL?). High Tuition. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Too local, so felt commuter-like to me, the pre-professional socializing is combined which I didn't prefer" More from this Member | Report Response

"the schools seems very unorganized! even the whole interview process was different than everywhere else!" More from this Member | Report Response

"D1's were giving the tours....so they were kind of out the loop because they have limited time at the dental school....should have been D4's " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. The only complaint from the D1 students was the attendance policy (you have to swipe your card at the beginning of every lecture)." More from this Member | Report Response

"D1's gave the tour. The sim lab didn't really impress me as much either." More from this Member | Report Response

"Students giving the tour were all first year students, so they basically just started." More from this Member | Report Response

"Humidity/hot weather...I am from S. FL so I have experience with it, but I still have never gotten to liking it. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That they didn't have any D-3's or D-4's speak with us at all, which makes me feel like they might be having issues with the upper classman but I could be overanalyzing too! The sim lab was newer but I have seen better at other schools and it also looked to be somewhat worn down already or just kind of dirty looking. I mean when compared to other school's new sim labs." More from this Member | Report Response

"Drivers in the South Florida area are insane. I knew that they were terrible and this trip confirmed my opinions. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing i can think of..." More from this Member | Report Response

"The weather gets some getting used to. The heat isn't that bad, but if you've never experienced 80% humidity it might get to you at first. But after couple of hours you'll get used to it." More from this Member | Report Response

"IT'S HOT...ESPECIALLY IN A SUIT AND YOU'RE NERVOUS TO BEGIN WITH..." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students who took us on the tour tried to give a positive impression of the school, but some of the students we encountered on the tour didn't have great things to say. " More from this Member | Report Response

"hot and humid weather" More from this Member | Report Response

"No negative things on this one:)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour was led by D1 students; they were really nice and outgoing, but were not able to answer some of the questions due to the fact that its only their first year. " More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing!" More from this Member | Report Response

"lack of patients the way they set up interviewing. some people waited 2 hours to get interviewed! one of my interviewers was very cold and standoffish. students didnt seem very pleased (seemed almost like nova was a backup)" More from this Member | Report Response

"I have never experienced a hurricane:-)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Cost" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing about this experience seemed professional. One of the students giving the tour told us all she came to school to find a husband, and tried to date by networking on facebook." More from this Member | Report Response

"Attendance is mandatory. Maybe postive or not. In fact, I took my best efforts in searching of any negative things about this school. Nothing was found." More from this Member | Report Response

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

"The fact that it was given by D1s. They didn't know a lot of answers to most of our questions. If it were given by higher class students it would have been more informative." More from this Member | Report Response

"According to the tour guides, the virtual reality lab is not working." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really. except the tuition is kind of high, but it is afterall a private school" More from this Member | Report Response

"Lack of actual interaction with faculty - mostly, we just spoke with students." More from this Member | Report Response

"humidity :/ eh.. its not a bad trade-off" More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour guide was a D1 and answered one of my questions incorrectly. I would have preferred to ask questions to D3 or D4 students who have been through the program longer and know more about the clinics. Also, the financial aid presentation was boring and automated." More from this Member | Report Response

"research/traffic/expensive/congested" More from this Member | Report Response

"I'm just knit-picking... but the financial aid presentation was given by a computer and projected onto a screen. Really nothing negative about the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Pretty much everyone's back up school. Looks like a resort. (I prefer the classical European look). Everyone there feels indifferent about the place. FL is too relaxed. Lax graduation requirements. Too hot." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing at the school negatively impressed me, but the one big negative for me was the fact that you have to have a car in Ft. Lauderdale." More from this Member | Report Response

"they need more clinical chairs for their students" More from this Member | Report Response

"the med school is a D.O school (random, I know); lack of alumni base" More from this Member | Report Response

"students seemed disinterested. one told me he was there "just to get his license." seemed almost too low stress. shouldn't dental school be challenging? " More from this Member | Report Response

"finding out that you sometimes have to fight for a chair and that you might have to go on the street to look for patients" More from this Member | Report Response

"The SIM lab was not as nice as those I have seen at other schools. There are also not enough chairs for the students in the clinic." More from this Member | Report Response

"Ft. Lauderdale isn't quite Miami. Facilities are nice, but seen better." More from this Member | Report Response

"The clinic...so small" More from this Member | Report Response

"Although the cost is less than many of the other out of state schools, it costs a lot to live there." More from this Member | Report Response

"You are assigned a few patients and must contact them for appointments. You do not have your own chair in clinics and some of the 3rd and 4th years said you sort of have to fight for a spot" More from this Member | Report Response

"the dental clinic has 80 chairs for over 300 students. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Need a car to get around and possibility of chasing patients for $$$." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour was kinda rushed...one of the D1's kept pressing us about how he had to get back to class, so we couldn't stop and look around very long at each stop." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, everything was awesome" More from this Member | Report Response

"The only two downsides I could think of, and I tried real hard are: Mandatory attendance and Hurricanes (not the hockey team. Apparently not too huge of a problem as long as you're prepared) There's really no downsides to Nova if you can afford it." More from this Member | Report Response

"kinda of humid, not sure how organized their staff is" More from this Member | Report Response

"the humidityl can suck until you get used to it" More from this Member | Report Response

"I guess the fact that there was no formal presentation or speech about the school. I didn't mind that very much though, because I don't think people really pay attention if they know they have an interview after...most people would be too nervous to pay any attention.

"A little pricey but reasonable for a private school" More from this Member | Report Response

"Tuition!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"It's EXPENSIVE!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour was terrible. The students that gave the tour were unprofessional. Some of the students were too busy talking to their dental student freinds rather than the tour group! The school is overrated. I don't know how many times, people in the tour group said, "There are a lot of students in our class that shouldn't be here" " More from this Member | Report Response

"that nova prefers students whom they personally know and also florida residents" More from this Member | Report Response

"That they had so many applications and that the faculty does not care about the students at all. Even at the interview, Ms. Zarrett had a split personality, in front of everyone she acted interested but once she was one on one, she yawned the entire time of the interview and practically looked at her watch several times. The other ppl just stared. Im glad I got accepted elsewhere because I wouldnt come here if they paid me. They seem biased and want to accept students that they know personally regardless of their academic performances and DAT scores. While at the school and on tour, I met many students who did poorly on the DAT and had low GPAs but were accepted because they knew someone at the school. Very disgusting. The tour guide himself said how many students at their school should not be there. I wonder who is making all the decisions after all. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Very friendly interviewers" More from this Member | Report Response

"You should give us the full tour of the entire campus" More from this Member | Report Response

"Relax, this will be the easiest interview you have." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great faculty, relaxed interview, great facility." More from this Member | Report Response

"NOVA should have D4 students give the campus tours" More from this Member | Report Response

"They asked me about problem areas within my application, which is fair. If you have a strong application you should have no problem during the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer made up his mind about me right from the start. He made little effort to get to know me throughout the interview. I felt like I was being put through a conveyor belt of questions. (He even told us prior to the interview: "I can figure out who you are in 2 minutes". Sadly, I don't think he was joking.)" More from this Member | Report Response

"<3 it" More from this Member | Report Response

"Have lots of questions for both the interviewers and the students that give you the tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was very short. Maybe 15-20 mins. And like other feedbacks have said, it is very conversational. Although this helped me feel very comfortable, I didn't really have a chance to say what I wanted to say because like any conversation, its two sided. So, when I mentioned a point, the interviewer would interject and add something completely unrelated which forced me to adapt and continue on with their conversation. Our conversation ended up way off track, ultimately discussing if professional athletes deserve their high salaries. My only advice for this interview (which I know is not helpful when preparing for one) is BE YOUR SELF! You really can't fake it in this interview because the style is so laid back and natural."

"shorter interview day.. from 11:45 to 3" More from this Member | Report Response

"I truly enjoyed the whole experience. I have interviewed at several schools prior to Nova. Nova is def on the top of my list. Very positive and friendly atmosphere. Very diverse environment. Dr. Lippman carefully reads all of the apps. He knew everything that I mentioned in my personal statement and my app. He also read the recommendation letters. He seemed genuinely interested in getting to know me as a person. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall great experience, I laid down some ground work over the summer so Dr. S and Su-Ann Z knew me this made the interview very laid back" More from this Member | Report Response

"Really nice environment at the school. They try to make sure we are relaxed before going into the interview. Go to the BEACH!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school & program in a great area. The school is actually in Davie, a suburb of Ft. Lauderdale. It's pretty safe and easy to get around. At the same time, Ft. Lauderdale is minutes away! It really is an ideal location." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nice school. Dr. Lippman was nice, but I wish I would have gotten to interview with him." More from this Member | Report Response

"The most relaxed interview...very conversational, no scare or intimidation tactics, and amazing school. Its so expensive, but if I get in, it will definitely make my school decision a difficult one! " More from this Member | Report Response

"I can honestly say I applied to Nova as an outside school, one of those schools that you are not dying to hear back from. When I was going to the interview, I really didnt feel like it would be a major contender but after I left, my opinion totally shifted. I was really impressed by the interview, school, facilities, and location. Hopefully I get in and if I do, its going to be a way harder decision then I initially thought! Great School and great location!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers really didn't ask anything, they just kept reading off of my file. They made assumptions about me based solely on this information and every time I needed to correct them about some detail they got wrong. I felt like they made their decision even before I walked in the interview room. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The laid-back, pleasant atmosphere of the interview is a great reflection of the school as a whole (from what I've heard from current students). Professors are helpful and students aren't competitive with each other. It's definitely a place that puts you in a great position to be successful." More from this Member | Report Response

"I LIKED THE PLACE....I WANNA GO THERE NOW!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The selling points of this school are the location, supposedly laid-back student body and friendly faculty. I'm sure it prepares students well clinically. However, some comments made by other students are enough to give us pause. " More from this Member | Report Response

"the day started at 11:45. there was nine of us today. first thing we did was meet with several D1s and D2s, who answered all our questions while we ate our lunch, which was pretty delicious. we then went on a tour of the school. facilities were clean and top-notch. i liked how the dental, medical, nursing, optometry, and pharmacy schools are all under one roof (there's several classes that everyone takes together, but you get tested and graded separately). at about 1:30pm, each person was taken in one-by-one into the interview, which was totally chill and conversational. at one point, my interviewers somehow came to a friendly disagreement and started making fun of each other. it was pretty hilarious. but yeah, no need to worry. there was one dude who kept on sweating profusely...didn't know if it was the heat or the nerves getting to him. the worst part was the waiting, since i was the very last person. they accept about 100, but if you interview here early, you're pretty much in. overall, awesome school."

"Great school, great location, new clinics. Wish the cost (private school) wasn't so high. Overall, I was very impressed." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour really turned me off to this school, just by the attitude these students had. One mentioned that she forgot everything on the boards as soon as it was over, and I personally would like to not forget board information when I'm done. The school has everything they need to be a great school, but the staff needs to tighten the leash on the students giving the tour. They acted unprofessional and I felt uncomfortable." More from this Member | Report Response

"Clinically oriented school. Not research "focused" school, but they are proud of their research. Letter graded. Living in Florida will be fun! Comprehensive questions.

"Overall the school is very nice. Appearances can be deceiving, as you will hear about multiple problems with the school which at the time appeared to be true. Otherwise the school looked nice and clean, and there was a nice influx of health care field students everywhere. Florida looks like a great place to live, hurricanes and money not withstanding." More from this Member | Report Response

"Completely at ease; they really are there to get to know you; Dr.L even came out and told us before we went in to relax and that it would be the most laid-back interview we've ever been on. It was. They're not there to trip you up." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone that we saw asked what program we were there for, and wished us luck. Dr. Lippman alone made me want to go there even more. Immaculate facilities, laid-back atmosphere, FT. LAUDERDALE WEATHER. Hung out with med students new years eve, and all were as chill as everyone else I met. Awesome experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is really amazing. The health professions division is seperated from undergrad and you have your own library, cafeteria, etc. It's really new and clean. I loved the facilities and all the students seemed really happy to be there. All the rumors circulating around SDN were cleared up (not enough chairs for students, no patients, etc..)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Awesome place, will be attending. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall the interview went very well. It is not too early so you are fully conscious . The weather was great (if you like warm weather) and every person you came in contact with was friendly. The interviewers also made an effort to make you comfortable and it was really like a conversation with a couple questions here and there." More from this Member | Report Response

"Awesome interview! The interviewers were very nice and conversational. They really seemed to encourage you to find the school that is right for you...even if it isn't Nova.

"the interviewers were so nice. the clinics were great. this school is quite expensive. the cost of living is quite high. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The student tour guides were not as informative as I would have liked, most likely because they were all in ther first year. The other students we encountered while on the tour were not very friendly nor welcoming. I was very uncomfortable in the interview itself because the two doctors (One middle-aged woman and one elderly man) were throwing questions at me left and right; before I was finished answering one question, I had already been asked another. I was very turned off by the fact that the interviewers did not have my updated transcripts." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was good, although the student interviewer seemed uninterested and disorganized" More from this Member | Report Response

"We waited in the office untill everyone arrived (8 total). We went up to a small room with about 6 students to ask them random questions. We then ate lunch in the same room and went on a tour of the school. We ended with the interview which was so kicked back. This school would have been my number one pick if I wasn't accepted to my in-state school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I loved NOVA, I would recommend everyone to try to go there. The school is new, amazing, and the students all seem to really like it there. They told that there isn't a "competition" like attitude there and that the faculty and students work to together. I really hope that I get in to NOVA. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Got to the interview around 10:00 (45 minutes early) and chatted with some PA people interviewing while the other people interviewing for the dental program arrived. Had lunch with some D4s, then went on a tour of the school. Then it was on to personal interviews, which was a long time waiting if you weren't on of the first to go (They gave courtesy to people with travel plans)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very easy going and laid back. Questions asked led into brief conversations. Dr. Lippman mainly asked the questions and another Dr. was there taking notes. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I did not think the interview went well until I got accepted because I was the last one to be interviewed that day, the interviewers did not ask the same questions as the rest, and it felt almost too casual during the interview. we talked a lot about hunting, fishing, and ther things I like to do. It is awesome place to live.. family or no family. I feel that one of the best indicators is by how the current students like it. every student I talked to lived it there. I interviewed 6 places and this is by far the best school." More from this Member | Report Response

"I thought it was amazing. I was not nervous at all when it came time for the interview. I had not prepared that well and was planning on "winging it" if they asked any tough questions...but it turns out they didn't even ask anything like that. Not even "why dentistry?". Overall I thought the school was beautiful and cannot think of a better place to spend 4 years." More from this Member | Report Response

"Amazing interview, the best one so far...I got accepted so I assume it went well for them too." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, the school is awesome. I would love to attend this school more than any other. Everyone was really friendly and had a very positive attitude. The interviewers were great! They were not intimidating but very friendly, helpful, and insightful. The tour guide, Andy, was very good. He is the human Nova brochure. He knows anything and everything about Nova. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour giude was the most informative and enthusiastic person in the whole school which was very nice. Nova seems like a very neat place to spend the next four years. I walked out of the school very impressed. I would love to attend this school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was really nice. The tour was very thorough. They actually served us fajitas for lunch, which shocked everyone (since we're all used to getting sandwiches at these interviews). Extremely diverse student body. Interviewers were very nice and it was more conversational than a rigid interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great! I just wish I hadn't said anything about doing badly in Geometry in high school and I wish I had expanded more on why I want to be a dentist. I was over-prepared for the interview which is better than being under-prepared." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a great experience at Nova, they jumped way up on my ist of dental schools that I want to attend. The atmosphere was great, from the lighting in the rooms, to the attitudes of the administration, this is a place that was built to help the students become great dentists. Also, they seem to attract a desirable quantity of cute girls." More from this Member | Report Response

"Easy. Comfortable atmosphere." More from this Member | Report Response

"I liked the school more than I thought I would, and I was very impressed with the facilites and the relationship between the faculty and students." More from this Member | Report Response

"Generally good. I wish they didn't make us sit there and wait for the interview at the end. I was the 2nd to last person called in and there were 2-3 45 minute interviews before me, so I ran out of things to talk with the other interviewees about. Bring a book." More from this Member | Report Response

"Good school." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview experience was excellent. I was not a top applicant grade wise, but my DAT was good and do well with people, so my interview went well. I enjoyed visiting Nova and seeing how nice it is. I'm a student here now and I still think its great. I enjoyed taking my National Boards Part I after my first year (passed just fine). I think that is a GREAT idea. Excellent pre-clinic lab preparation." More from this Member | Report Response

"very comfortable, relaxed. The interviews were very nice and also tried to make the student relaxed to see the real person." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was VERY laid back. Acutally the interviewers seemed to do most of the talking. I was accepted a week later!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Good school, beautiful campus,friendly students, seems like a great place to spend four years. I got accepted a week later." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was definitely impressed with the school. It is now one of my top choice school. The people (students and faculty) all seemed very positive and happy. There were only four of us interviewing so I felt that there was a more personal interaction between all of us. The interview was the most relaxing and laid back interview I've had, even though there were four interviewing me. Lunch and snacks were a royal treatment. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Great experience. This school seems to have its act together. They have been one of the top five schools for the past two years on board exams part one. " More from this Member | Report Response

"the school is so new and amazing. students are very friendly and open to answering your questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall it went very well. We laughed through the entire interview. Stress free." More from this Member | Report Response

"The entire day was great. The students were very friendly and answered all our questions in great detail. They are very happy to be at nova because its a great atmosphere to study dentistry in. The facilities are probably the best in the country and you are probably doing more hands-on practice than any dental student in the country." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great School to attend, you will like what you see during the interview... definetly. The beach is close, Miami is 20 miles away, you can have fun if you can get the chance. This is what makes the school unique. The curriculum seemed normal, the usual heavy workload. " More from this Member | Report Response

"A great program to visit and find out about." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was very laid back. I was only asked a total of three questions (besides the little ones that came up during conversation) and the remainder of the time was spent chatting. The questions were very simple and straight-forward. Nova exclaimed that they value student feedback and will make adjustments to their program based on the student's opinions. The provided lunch first, then lead us on a tour and then finally started the interviews after everyone was nice and full." More from this Member | Report Response

"arrived at 11:45, had lunch with first-years, toured the school, spoke with the financial aid advisor, then had the interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"Onthe whole,my interview was good .It was not really ''stressful'' .school and florida are good" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very Bad. If I would have known I wouldnt have spent the time to drive down from tampa, and wouldnt have spent the $ in applying here." More from this Member | Report Response

"Pretty relaxed. Half the time you are hanging out with the current students eating lunch and taking a tour. Then its on to your interview and your free to go after that. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Excellent. Be sure to relax. If you don't believe in yourself, how do you expect them to? Be honest- they can spot lies from a mile away. They try to help you, unlike other schools who look for a reason not to pick you. Listen to my advice- I got in. Best wishes!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Had a snack, went on tour with D1 student, spoke with a financial aid person, had my interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"I loved the school. The HPD (health professions division) hosts students from 7-8 different colleges (DO, DMD, pharmacy etc), so you get to interact with a lot of mixed people. Overall, everybody seemed happy to be there. I would recommend anybody to look into this school. Its grrrrr-8! Oh yeah, you cant beat the weather/atmosphere in south Florida." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was very laid back and not stressful at all." More from this Member | Report Response

I was done by 2:00. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't like being a zoo animal. 5 people watching, staring at me during the interview??? PLEASE!!!! Two people asking questions, the other three stared!! " More from this Member | Report Response

"very relaxing interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"Mr. Lippman and Su-Ann Zarret were truly genuine and nice to me. I enjoyed their time, and I will be attending this program. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Laid back interview. Enjoy yourself." More from this Member | Report Response

"not sure why they ask those weird questions...has nothing to do with dentistry. i guess it's just to see how you react on the spot/to pressure" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall a great experience, I was really anxious to see Florida and I wasn't disappointed. It's a great fun place to live and spend 4 years. The school itself is great, the students are all happy and friendly, the professors seem genuinely happy to help. I think everybody is happy because they're living in South FL."

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"Not hold in-person interviews if the dean is going to be completely paranoid the whole time rather than getting to know the applicants." More from this Member | Report Response

"keep up the good work" More from this Member | Report Response

"Please make some change! Please improve on your program as you expect the same thing from students" More from this Member | Report Response

"Give us more tour guides. the group was big and it was hard to hear what the students were saying a lot of times if you are in the back of the group" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing at all! Everyone was so nice and every time I call or email I get a very fast response. And for those that are traveling for the interview they ask if you have flight restrictions so you get to be seen faster. Super accommodating. Always a pleasure to be at NOVA :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Keep doing what you're doing! Every school should have their interview like Nova! Having a relaxed, conversational interview with super friendly faculty let me be myself and show who I really am, and I think that is important so that the admissions can see if I am a right fit for the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"more receptive and reachable office of admin" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing much actually, they're all doing their best to recruit and generate the best dentist there is." More from this Member | Report Response

"I interviewed at Nova today and I have to say it was the best interview yet. I was interviewed by Dr. Keller. He was very honest about how I ranked among the current students. Also, I like his interview approach. I felt very comfortable and laughed throughout the appointment because he made me feel at ease and just be myself! The admissions dept is doing a great job! Please dont change anything!" More from this Member | Report Response

"maybe start earlier so OOS students can catch earlier flights." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers tell you NOT to stress out but for me I don't like how much emphasis the students and interviewers place on relaxing and being happy and not being TOO serious. It is a very serious process and the fact that they kept telling us we were too serious as a group of interviewees was a little annoying. We were all post-december 1st applicants so we obviously care a lot about our future. There is a difference between being nervous and being serious." More from this Member | Report Response

"Start earlier. Makes the day go faster." More from this Member | Report Response

"Its soooooo pretty." More from this Member | Report Response

"Pick up the phone. E-mail or phone call to confirm would be nice." More from this Member | Report Response
