I was more impressed with the faculty as they really do an impressive job helping students have a smooth clinical experience. UDM is moving next year... so NEW facilities :D" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone is so friendly and welcoming, they just want to get to know you. also you get a ton of clinical experience and community involvement." More from this Member | Report Response

"amazing clinical experience, new school in 2 years, have you try on your lab coat" More from this Member | Report Response

"The new clinic building, and spending the day with one of my friends experiencing the day of a dental student (3rd year)" More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Interviewers were playing good cop/bad cop and questioned every answer I stated no matter how specific I gave. Felt like an interrogation to be honest, and multiple times the one "bad cop" would ignore my full answer and zero in on a certain phrase I said then state why I was wrong when my full explanation really illustrated something vastly different" More from this Member | Report Response

"Online interview (covid 19)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The presentation of the school overall" More from this Member | Report Response

"Seemed to downplay the potential danger of the surrounding area, but most students felt safe most of the time. School is closed at inconvenient hours if you want extra study time." More from this Member | Report Response

"There were no vegetarian options for lunch so some of us were very hungry all day." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviews weren’t very friendly and made me feel more uncomfortable. They also seemed ask about all my negative aspects and forgot to ask me the ethical questions, so they had to bring me back into the interview after I thought I was done and left." More from this Member | Report Response

"The price" More from this Member | Report Response

"not strong on research" More from this Member | Report Response

"No lunch. No water.... little bit of snack was provided after interview, tour, Q&A...etc." More from this Member | Report Response

"Detroit wasn't a very impressive city." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is in Detroit where there are a bunch of abandoned buildings and broken street lights so not a place you feel completely safe to roam around. Being on the campus is safe, but I don't think the surrounding area is. Many students drive in from surrounding suburbs. School closes completely at 10pm, so no late night studying on campus" More from this Member | Report Response

"I don't like the idea of driving around in Detroit, especially during high traffic rush hours." More from this Member | Report Response

"The doubling of class size but not doubling of faculty, the location of the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview day consists of 40-50 applicants and it was a saturday interview (not get to see student atmosphere)" More from this Member | Report Response

"There were 2 people asking questions because one would fire the next question as I finished the other question. And there was no water to moisten your mouth" More from this Member | Report Response

"The location. It sort of reminds me of Boston. Some nice areas, lots of crappy areas." More from this Member | Report Response

"It's in Detroit, but then again that is the reason for the excellent patient base I suppose. The immediate area isn't bad at all, the building/parking lot is very secure, and the school is right off the expressway, but I still wouldn't go for a night run." More from this Member | Report Response

"The area around the school" More from this Member | Report Response

"cost" More from this Member | Report Response

"location, rough area plus everyone drives 30 minutes +/- one way to campus" More from this Member | Report Response

"The area, although it is a positive because those patients give you great experience and great clinical skills." More from this Member | Report Response

"Greeting at reception. My mother and I walked in and asked what there was to do in the area in terms of tourist attractions and shopping, and the receptionist asked where we were from. We told her Ottawa, and she gave us a very condescending look and told us that there was a casino close by...and we had those in Ottawa right? She was referring to the Ottawa indian tribe, whereas we were a little confused given that we were from Ottawa, Canada's capital! How embarassing for her..." More from this Member | Report Response

"neighborhood" More from this Member | Report Response

"There is not much around! Detroit is not far away though." More from this Member | Report Response

"location of the school " More from this Member | Report Response

"They were still in the process of moving in so some things are unorganized. Phone lines seem to not be working when I tried to call before my interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lack of research compared to other schools, but was assured if I really wanted to, the school would try to accomodate my requests." More from this Member | Report Response

"The front guard was a little rude but he was just doing his job and protecting the grounds" More from this Member | Report Response

"The location of the schoool has surrounding areas that are not very plesant - but this is POSITIVE because their clinic get SOOOO many people with so many needs - you will get exposure to things that you would never see at schools based in nicer areas " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"The location (Detroit/the neighborhood) was a bit sketchy, the school was small, and it was separated from the main campus, which could make it quite isolated." More from this Member | Report Response

"location" More from this Member | Report Response

"It is in detroit, but that works out to your advantage because of the huge patient base and the amont of experiences you can get." More from this Member | Report Response

"The area around the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"unsure of where the new school will be" More from this Member | Report Response

"They are moving in Aug. of 2007, but this has its ups: They will probably be moving downtown (more of a city environment) plus the facilities will all be new and better than the already quite-nice setup they have now. THe entering class of 2005 will be spending their 3rd and 4th years in an all new building with new clinics." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing negative to say about this school, I liked that it was small and that the students received lots of attention and practiced in high-tech clinics....I just didn't like Detroit. It was sort of scary compared to my home-town." More from this Member | Report Response

"no gym or other extra curricular activities. Not the best neighbourhood" More from this Member | Report Response

"the ghetto area surrounding the school..." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour was very quick and given by the admissions secretary because no student was available. She was as helpful as she could be but the student led tours are probably better. I had previously taken a tour at the UDM open house that was much more informative." More from this Member | Report Response

"campus is run down, detroit is cold" More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that the school is going to be moving in two years and no one knows where but they think it good be downtown Detroit. Although I am from Michigan, Detroit scares me!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The are does not seem the safest, but they have security guards and large iron fences." More from this Member | Report Response

"UDM is not in the best area, but the entire school is surrounded by a 10 foot tall steel fence with guards at the gates." More from this Member | Report Response

"The location" More from this Member | Report Response

"Small school, commuting, having me try on a white coat seemed too forward" More from this Member | Report Response

"Not in the greatest neighborhood, but the campus seems pretty insulated." More from this Member | Report Response

"I am not a person concern with fancy and expensive new facilities. Their classrooms and library are a bit older, but clinic was built in 1997. Also for some who are afraid of “bad areas” well there is large segments of the city with this. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Maybe the cost...but nothing really." More from this Member | Report Response

"The janky tour given by the admissions secretary (she didn't know what most of the rooms were, luckily my friend gave an additional tour)" More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"not an easy-going conversation" More from this Member | Report Response

"to monitor my response time" More from this Member | Report Response

"RELAX. My interview group had 60 people. Long introduction to the school, long tour," More from this Member | Report Response

"To eat beforehand." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, everything went as planned." More from this Member | Report Response

"that no food was being offered" More from this Member | Report Response

"I could have prepared more for the ethical questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"Low-stress interview/environment." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was more of a 2 on 1 interrogation." More from this Member | Report Response

"That I would be the only one interviewing that day (10/8/12), that my tour guide would be my interviewer and that I was going to eat lunch with him. It was all a good thing as I could keep showing him my personality after the interview but it also made it feel like the interview lasted the whole day. I didn't want to say something stupid." More from this Member | Report Response

"Intimidation by faculty interviewer" More from this Member | Report Response

"Just be yourself. Preparing isnt the best thing to do. Being calm is the best advice, focus on breathing so you dont get short of breath and seem nervous." More from this Member | Report Response

"They gave me some privacy to talk to students working in their sim lab. It was impromptu, and the students I talked to was totally up to me. I could have had "juicier" questions prepared if I would've known that." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the interview was so relaxed. It's sort of makes you feel like you're just walking in on a day at the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"That it was just an interview and a school tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"they are trying to almost double their class size. i wonder if this will change their great clinical reputation" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was finals week. There weren't many students around and most of them were studying basically isolated or in small groups." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lunch was provided" More from this Member | Report Response

"easy interview and they give you no lunch (was hungry during the interview)" More from this Member | Report Response

"There was a lot of construction on I-75, so be careful and allow plenty of travel time." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing... " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing out of the ordinary." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the students are AWESOME and I actually can see myself attending the school over other places." More from this Member | Report Response

"That it was a clinical based school and they extended their services to 4 other clicnics in the Detroit metro & surrounding area" More from this Member | Report Response

"dont worry about it. be confident, plesant, it is generally meeting the faculty and seeing the schoool. " More from this Member | Report Response

"interview and tour were only 2 hours. i was free after that." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"length of interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"it was really not stressful at all" More from this Member | Report Response

"Plan some time trying to find the school if you aren't familiar with the area so you aren't late. I got lost a few times on the way although luckily I left really early so I had plenty of time. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That I was only going to be there for two hours. Plus the drive to Detroit sucks!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview seems to be an opportunity for the admission committee you get to know you and how determined you are to becoming a dentist. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Most of the buildings were somewhat run down, and it's in the middle of the ghetto (I knew this before, but it took driving to the school for it to sink in.) Oh, and they have odd policies on renting instruments and sending out labwork. " More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"student information session and wrap up the interview were very reassuring and showed a lot of good personalities as well as positives in the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"I interviewed during the covid 19 pandemic so I had mine online. Overall, it was the same style as an in person interview just through a screen. Harder to gauge ones personality" More from this Member | Report Response

"Loved the school, haters gonna hate." More from this Member | Report Response

"Really great, welcoming school." More from this Member | Report Response

"I loved the school, faculty, and facilities, but the school is way too expensive." More from this Member | Report Response

"overall good school great clinical work" More from this Member | Report Response

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

"Liked the school. State of the art facilities." More from this Member | Report Response

"UDM emphasizes making great clinicians, and they don't disappoint." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was honestly a huge surprise for me; I didn't think I'd like it as much as I did. It is a super nice school with great faculty and students and it sounds like such a supportive environment." More from this Member | Report Response

"I hope I get accepted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"very nice school, facility is very nice, a run down area but thats part of the experience and being able to treat a variety of patients" More from this Member | Report Response

"I liked everything about the school minus the increase class size and price. It was very difficult to give up my acceptance to the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"They will intimidate you at first but they will open up to you later on." More from this Member | Report Response

"Make sure you are calm and dress very professional they notice everything. Top button buttoned with tie all the way up." More from this Member | Report Response

"About what I expected, good clinical prep, maybe less need for a GPR or AEGD than most school's graduates, a so-so/cold location." More from this Member | Report Response

"A+ program. I almost didn't come because of the location's rep, but I am really glad I did." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nice faculty and the facilities looked top notch. Personally, I didn't think this school was the right fit for me though." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school...top choice" More from this Member | Report Response

"good enough school to still question if i made the right decision not to go there" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great dental school, great faculty and staff, friendliness everywhere! Just wish I could place the school in my backyard." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great experience! I was interviewed on the clinic floor and really got a first hand look at the student experience at the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"love the school/hate the city. wish i could transplant the school to a different city! lol" More from this Member | Report Response

"**This was for the 7 YEAR BS/DDS PROGRAM.** I had an essay and two interviews. The essay was about 3 subjects: is health care a right or privilege, what makes you a good dentist, and why come to udm's 7 year program. The first interview was with a guy from the college of science and we talked about everyday things, politics, etc. the 2nd interview was with a guy from the dental school and that was more about denistry. The below ?s were from the dentistry guy. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Laid back interview with intersting faculty. They are on top of the game, especially when it comes to selecting good dentist, not just good academics." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great interview. very laid back. no stressful questions. It's pretty much a conversation, just so they get to know you." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a tour from a student first. My interview was with one of the professors. It was very informal and laid back. Very few actual questions were asked, but it was mostly just a conversation about the school and dentistry in general." More from this Member | Report Response

"interview was very laid back. they want to make sure the student knows about dentistry and not just trying to get in because of his/her high grades. just be yourself. It is more of a conversation than asking standard interview questions. be prepared to answer questions about specific low grades you got in classes or on the DAT because they will ask why. Cheating question is asked every single time, so be sure you tell them ''the cheater doesn't deserve to be in dental school, it's not professional or ethical'' New school is very nice. The interview goes by quickly so make sure you tell and show all of the good stuff about you in the short time you get to talk. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I have to say, I drove over and there was a lot of construction going on on the highways so I got lost. I tried to call to get directions but the phone lines were not working which was annoying. I ended up showing up 5 minutes late. However it wasn't a big issue since the person interviewing me was late also. The school is very nice since it was just renovated and still in the process of being renovated. Some things seem a little disorganized but the kinks would be fixed once they finish moving into the new site. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Arrived about 15 minutes prior to my interview. First thing was the jacket fitting and I debated whether to put my nickname on it, but then decided against it. My interview picked me up and took me into the clinic. Firstly, he told me the cons of UDM which I admired since no school that I have visited previously would tell me why I shouldn't go there. Anyway, the interview was in the clinic and mostly I observed my interviewer tending to students and their patients. The actual interview was maybe only 5 minutes as I never really fully answered any questions that were asked since we were in such a bind for time. Then had lunch which my interviewer paid for and ate with the seniors. After lunch came back to the clinic to finish my interview. Then went home. Good times all around!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was relaxing. They did majority of the talking. It was more of a conversation and somehow you need to figure out a way to portray your ideas, personality, and attributes that make you stand out amongst the crowd." More from this Member | Report Response

"It started off by meeting the assistant admissions director, Ms Blackburn. She fit me up for a white lab coat and asked how I would like my name spelled on it - this was very cool and inspiring. Next I sat in a small waiting room designated for interviewees with a little glass wall. My interviewer (Dr. Berkowski) came and picked me up and we went down to the clinic to conduct our interview in one of the open bays, since he is not a perminant professor and does not have an office. The interview started off with a few general questions, why dentistry, strenghts/weaknesses, what would i do if i saw someone cheating (the correct answer to this question is to rat them out,... even though i'd have a hard time doing that. It messes up the grading curve and is unfair) , what would i do if i were failing a class in dental school , what would i do if i didn't get in, what if i COULD NOT be a dentist, what happened to my freshmen (low scores) year , ... that kind of stuff. After about 25-30 minutes of that, he took the rest of the hour telling me about UDM. everything about their specialty programs, clinics, what they are and what they aren't (they are clinic, not research). in the middle of our interview students would come up and ask him questions (he is the clinical professor), so we'd go over to the patient, talk about the case, he show me things, and we went back to continue the interview - very relaxed setting. He took me on a tour of the school, and bought my lunch with two other dental students who told me their take of it. They seem to like it a lot, and say it's very challenging, and talked about the usual class/professor venting about the things they dont like. After the lunch we went back to the clinic and met back up with the interviewer, asked me for any questions, told me specificially that he is going to "endorse me", and was impressed with how things went. Then he walked me out the front door. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall interview experience was really good!!! During my interview Dr. Jeffers (super nice guy) gave me couple hints of my acceptance :)) . They send me letter in next week." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great experience. I wasn't very nervous going in, and it was exactly what I expected - very relaxed, conversational, everyone was reassuring." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a good experience. Very relaxed." More from this Member | Report Response

"It started out with just a list of standardized questions they ask you and then it is just open for you to ask questions. It was pretty much just a good conversation between us. " More from this Member | Report Response

"overall is was a positive experience, but it was by no means as impressive as other schools i have been to." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview went great and I was accepted and will attend UDM." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a very relaxed experience and it was pretty much a conversation. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Immediatly interview, followed by a tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall a great school, great faculty and students. Got accepted a week later and starting next fall" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great Program. For all you out-of-staters afraid of the location... its not as bad as you think. While its in detroit, its pretty much surrounded by a neighborhood and also has an intimidating perimeter fence with security before you enter." More from this Member | Report Response

"Excellent...I think this would be a great school to attend, especially if you like the state of Michigan a lot." More from this Member | Report Response

"amazing..they got back to me a week later and I plan to attend this school." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was great - I really recommend trying this school out - no one had anything negative to say and everyone was really great to be around - very positive." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer was awesome...real laid back and extremely nice. She didn't want to make it stressful and overall I was impressed with the school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I love this school and although I have interviews at 4 other schools I am canceling them because UDM is my first choice. I love that they are always keeping me updated on my application through the mail and also that the school itself never acts like its too good for anyone. For example, rather than saying "Your DAT score is too low for us, you'll never get in" they suggest that you probably were not as prepared as you could have been and they would like to see you take the test again and improve. YES ITS IN A BAD AREA but that is an asset because of all the patients that come to the school for care. You get an amazing clinical experience compared to other schools. I was accepted 3 days after my interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"the dental school is getting old, but they are moving to a different campus in two years. the clinic is really nice, fairly new. they treated me very nicely, the students were all really nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"I feel the interview went great and it was such a relaxing experience. I was not nervous at all and normally I freak out. I was only asked a few questions and then we pretty much just talked so don't be nervous!" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a wonderful interview experience. More like a conversation, my interviewer basically wanted to get to know a little bit about me, and then give me the opportunity to ask as many questions as I wanted. It was truly informative!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Excellent" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall the interview was really laid back. The professor I interviwed with was really nice. I heard if you get a interview with U of D your pretty much garanteed admission." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was great, the faculty member was very nice and I really enjoyed talking to him, my questions were answered very well" More from this Member | Report Response

"I like the school! It is definitely one of my top choices. Much more impressive then the Internet site sell it to be. The staff was very warm, and the school seems to have the students as the top priority. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I was positive I wouldn't get in, but a few days after my interview the dean called to congratulate me, it's a good school with a big waitlist. " More from this Member | Report Response
