What impressed you positively?

"the facilities were amazing, everything is digital" More from this Member | Report Response

"The technology is advanced - the school is clean and new while still actively taking in student opinions. My interviewer was also very personable." More from this Member | Report Response

"1. The facility of the school and how nice every faculty was. 2. They set up the entire clinical cubicle just like any other private practice. This gives patients more privacy during treatment. 3. Students work in pairs (one main doc and one assist). This model allows a greater efficiency and students get to learn the aspect of being an assistant as well, which will be beneficial in the future if they want to set up a private practice. 4. There are no dispensary station and all the equipment and materials are accessible in every cubicle --> Time efficiency." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer had a list of questions and had to hit every question quickly without allowing time to really respond. Seemed to be an issue with other interviewees. The clinical facilities were modern but almost empty at 2pm on a Wednesday. They do not have a D4 class yet but there should still be plenty of patients in the chairs for routine work that D3s can do." More from this Member | Report Response
