At lunch, I spoke with a couple of students that were passing by in the halls and asked them how they liked U of L and none of them seemed stressed and they all said they wouldn’t go any where else. The school has a fairly new Sim Lab (which rocks), high pass rates on both boards, and Louisville is a great city to live in.

"Pretty much everything. Everyone is so friendly there. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The Louisville community seemed like one big family. The students had few complaints other than some old equipment and lack of parking. Many schools admit classes that have stronger numbers than UofL's, but they always seem to finish in the top ten of board exam scores. That shows that they really do a good job of teaching. They also offer Zoo Dentistry and Forensic Dentistry courses." More from this Member | Report Response

"the atmosphere at the school was very welcoming" More from this Member | Report Response

"the students/faculty. Everyone is so friendly. The interview day was well planned and worked to perfection. The students stressed how every class is so team oriented and non-gunnerish. The faculty really want you to suceed and will even spend one-on-one time with you to help you out. There are new pedo/ortho labs that are really nice. They also have a great sim lab/program. They use a the sim lab in a clinical setting instead of just problem based. The school was nice and the students have scored in the top 10 for five years in a row on the national board part II. They focus greatly on the clinical aspect of dentistry and produce great general practitioners. Good lunch." More from this Member | Report Response

"The faculty and students were all very warm and friendly. They made everyone feel completely at home and comfortable.

"Nothing!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The location and cost" More from this Member | Report Response

"Class size, parking" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviews were pretty stressful and they sort of skirted the issue of how expensive it is for out of staters." More from this Member | Report Response

"That there are 120 students that all need enough patients to go around." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour guide was a bit too much. She made us walk through 3 different lecture halls filled with current dental students. We walked in and just stood there, I felt like we were on display. Also, lunch came a bit late. I was starving during the presentations." More from this Member | Report Response

"I do not like Louisville as a city. There is no metro or good public transportation. I will say they have good restaurants, but nothing else really impressed me about the city. Perhaps I am biased because the weather was terrible while I was there." More from this Member | Report Response

"Length of presentations during interview day." More from this Member | Report Response

"It sucked having to see the construction going on but the remodeled areas look amazing" More from this Member | Report Response

"Tuition, tuition, tuition. They pulled no punches and made no apologies about how expensive their school was. They recommended selling cars, never going out to lunch, and basically anything to cut costs. Basically they stressed that you will be dirt poor the whole time you're there. They are more expensive than most private schools in the long run with no chance to change residency status." More from this Member | Report Response

"The construction, the really old parts of the building, the long powerpoint presentations" More from this Member | Report Response

"not being able to see the campus before my acceptance (I interviewed in Salt Lake City, Utah), but it was convenient not to have to pay for airfare, etc to interview... sort of a catch 22!" More from this Member | Report Response

"All the presentations. Lasted 4 hours and they were pre-interview. " More from this Member | Report Response

"location" More from this Member | Report Response

"Dr. Hicks" More from this Member | Report Response

"Homeless shelter just down the street...many students commented on how often they were approached for money or, for some, mugged." More from this Member | Report Response

"Parts of the school are definitely out-dated and its hard to compare facilities when you interview at schools with brand new equipment. They will be remodeling though and it will directly help our class. The neighborhood directly surrounding the campus is pretty hairy! As I walked back to my hotel, I witnessed a man urinating on the sidewalk a block from the school as passerbys stood in amazement! Also, if you are from the north, you might start to think everyone there is southern. Although many people you interview with are from the north, get used to every enrolled student being a southerner, for me, that can become sort of annoying. I can only listen to so many hun's and ya'lls in a day!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything is kind of old, and reconstruction hasn't started yet. " More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really. Some of the stuff may look a little older but they plan to renovate. " More from this Member | Report Response

"facilities were older, but they are being replaced. City. " More from this Member | Report Response

"price for out of state tuition" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing special. Just few places to have hardcore fun." More from this Member | Report Response

"The whole process seemed a little bit longer than other interviews. The interviewers did not ask many questions, but I guess it is more negative for them if they don't find out everything they want about prospective students." More from this Member | Report Response

"While I was there it rained the whole time, and the traffic is horrible most of the time. " More from this Member | Report Response

"the incredibly hot conference room we were crammed into" More from this Member | Report Response

"The cost for out-of-state residents; who must sign a contract stating they started school as and will remain an out-of-state resident." More from this Member | Report Response

"The presentation at the beginning was very informative, but did not seem to flow very quickly." More from this Member | Report Response

"The older faculty they seem to have." More from this Member | Report Response

"wait time between interviews. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The area is a little ghetto for me. Starting JULY 2!!!!!!! Clinics are old, and I couldn't get a straight answer on whether or not you get your own (so I'm guessing not). " More from this Member | Report Response

"Though I doubt I would have the time to go out, I can’t imagine there is all that much to do." More from this Member | Report Response

"The faculty are all old people, who are rumored to be there because for some reason they can't practice dentistry anymore (a 4th year told me that) They need new equipment, they need a Dean! (they have had the same dean for 35 years and pretty much nothing has changed in 35 years)" More from this Member | Report Response

"the place is old. the methods by some of the teachers seem out of date as mentioned by several students. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Building is kind of old, but they are going to remodel it" More from this Member | Report Response

"If anything, I would say some of their equipment could be upgraded, which they are in the process of doing." More from this Member | Report Response

"that you take your boards the end of your second year right after your clinical test and the students seemed to think it was a bit ridiculous and they didn't have enough time for everything (crazy course schedule, boards and clinical test)" More from this Member | Report Response

"starting in July" More from this Member | Report Response

"lab system and all the instruments were very old. they were still using 80's technology. there's no library only for dental student, so you have to share with medical students and it was very small. " More from this Member | Report Response

"my interviewer would pause during the interview to read my entire personal statement and to read my letters of recommendations. She didn't prepare beforehand to get to know me as a person, and she seemed really irritable when she was interviewing me. I just sat in silence as she read my file-it was awkward." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer was very inappropriate and offensive; it was also obvious that he had not read my application carefully (or maybe at all)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Most students live 15 minutes away from the school. The school is not in the nicest part of town." More from this Member | Report Response

"I am not sure how well I would like the city." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing, some of the facilities are older, but they are going to start putting in new equipment soon." More from this Member | Report Response

"The price for out of state residents is too high for the facilities being offered, but I have heard that the clinical training is excellent, which they probably are since the part 2 board scores are in the top 10." More from this Member | Report Response

"Start school earlier than most, but it's just to ease you into the workload. The terms' length are flexible from year to year, so it makes it hard to plan anything outside of school (vacations, etc.). It's in downtown Louisville. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities are a little old, but are soon to be remodeled. We saw some of the areas that have already been re-done and they were quite nice. The simulation clinic is fabulous." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very high out-of-state tuition. And the only way to become a Kentucky resident is to marry one. So unless that is in your future, be prepared to pay a lot for your education. " More from this Member | Report Response

"people at the school, old facilities, snobby" More from this Member | Report Response

"The weather is drab. Some old clinical settings and the interview was long-(9:30-4:00)(16 students). But, new stuff is on the way and the interview went by fast. (So, not really negative)." More from this Member | Report Response

"3 interviews; it took a long time to do and half of the group was gone while others were still waiting for thier first interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"The clinic is outdated." More from this Member | Report Response

"I expected a fiarly laid back interview like I had heard most students talking about, and instead got drilled by this old fossil, who knows where they dug him up from. Lots of hard demoralizing questions then when I would try to give an answer/explination he would just cut me off with the some rude remark or another question. I got probably three words in the whole time. Also there were like fifteen people being interviewed that day and only two students so it was hard to ask them questions, instead we just got the fly-by tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"Some older equipment" More from this Member | Report Response

"Old equipment" More from this Member | Report Response

"They never asked me why I wanted to go there which I thought was weird. Some of the facilities are old but they are doable. The school is great but I was told there isn't much to do besides attend school, drink, and play golf." More from this Member | Report Response

"Some of the equipment was old. There really isn't much parking and there aren't a lot of places to eat in the vicinity of the school. Louisville traffic can also get pretty hectic." More from this Member | Report Response

"The actual clinic is old and needs to be renovated. The rennovation should take place within the next four years. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing about the visit really negatively impressed me." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"None." More from this Member | Report Response

"the city itself and not the school. there is not much to do besides attending school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day was very unorganized. During the tour, the admissions counselor was recruiting interviewers. She was asking students and volunteer professors to interview, bribing them with cookies, etc. The students sat together waiting for interviews, and some students were forgotten, so they had to rush in order for them to have their 2nd and 3rd interviews."

"i wish i had prepared better questions. they answered all of mine in the very informative information overview." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day goes pretty much as follows: introduction, overview presentation of the school, financial aide presentation, tour of the school by a student, lunch with the students, and then 3 interviews with different members of the admissions committee (one on one.) runs from about 9am-3pm." More from this Member | Report Response

"Have questions ready to ask them that has nothing to do with financial aid or the school in general because most of those questions are answered during the presentation." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I would have known how thorough the presentations would be. I would have thought of better questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"that the school, takes 50% male and 50% female, this doesnt represent the application pool at all. way more males apply. i know of alot of guys who interviewed here from my university, 6 of us and only 1 got in. compared to the 5 of us who got into case in decmber. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That Colonel Sanders is everywhere! There is a huge picture of him on the side of a building, it's quite funny really. Also I wish I knew about the 'exit interview.'

Btw stay in the bed and breakfast that is mentioned on the school's website...it's awesome. " More from this Member | Report Response

"**WARNING OUT OF STATE APPLICANTS*** my interviewer told me that acceptances have been given out to all out of state applicants. If you have an interview in Feb, the only chance you have of getting in is if people who have been given acceptances decide not to come. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone interviewed with different people, so while some people were grilled and had really tough interviews...some were really laid back. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Good school! EXTREMELY FRIENDLY! Most friendly out of all schools I interviewed at!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school, seriously really nice people. It made it virtually a stress free interview. And they are planning a huge remodel to update facilities. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school! Great school for Research + Clinical training. Early exposure to clinical training and a lot of community outreach programs. Large size of patient pool, computer assisted education! The interview took 4hours, and I had two interviews and one exit interview. Faculty members and staffs are really nice. In a conference room, all interviewees who were waiting for their turns had time to talk with several ADCOM members & each other." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lower the out of state tuition." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really liked the school and would feel fortunate to get my dental education at U of L" More from this Member | Report Response

"This was my first interview. I thought it was very relaxed, not at all what I expected. The people made you feel very comfortable. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall I was very impressed. The staff and doctors all seemed genuinely concerned with the student's education. The clinics are supposed to be renovated within the next few years, but the facility is pretty up-to-date." More from this Member | Report Response

"Louisville seemed like a great school which I could enjoy attending for 4 years. Compared to others, the students were very happy and not beaten down by the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Went really well." More from this Member | Report Response

"My experience was positive. It's an all-day affair and you'll learn a lot about the school. The interviews were all about getting to know the person. My first interview with the admissions director started off, "You look good on paper. I just wanna know if you can communicate? You know what I'm sayin'?" 2nd interview was with a dentist. 3rd was an exit interview that sort of wraps up everything that happened from your interviews. Lunch and tour was informal and pleasant." More from this Member | Report Response

"We were given a lot of good info in the morning, then a tour, then lunch (pre-packed bags- they were good), then interviewed. In addition we watched some presentation about student life, hilarious but weird. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I had fun. No one was there to cause you any more stress that you had already brought with you. The degree of genuinely nice folks was amazing. I would love to go to U of L!" More from this Member | Report Response

"One of my interviewers was so layed back. he didn't even ask me any questions. He just talked. The other guy was much more professional, but he was a microbiologist, not a dentist. Neither of them really bragged about the school, just the area." More from this Member | Report Response

"If you have an interview here, relax, they are very nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"one interviewer was a student, and all she wanted to do is give me advice, not interview me. the doctor that interviewed me was nice but it felt like it went over rather well. they also do an exit interview, mine was doen by this nice really old guy. i dont think he understood what i was saying. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall the day went by well. Everything was the same as the others, financial aid, overview of curriuclum, etc.... Interviews went well, the faculty was great. Very relaxed atmosphere, I loved that." More from this Member | Report Response

"I thought it was a positive experience and will attend here in a heartbeat if I get accepted. The U of L program is top notch!" More from this Member | Report Response

"terrific!!! i loved it. #1 on my list. everyone is so incredibly helpful and nice. i couldn't get over how invested the school seemed to be in their students." More from this Member | Report Response

"overall it was a relaxing and informative day" More from this Member | Report Response

"there are three interviews and last one is called 'exit' interview which you will have a chance to talk to dean of admission office. He will tell you if you get in or not even though it's not 100%, he will tell you the chances. that means your interview doesn't really affect on your admission. especially if you get an interview later than December, they usually looked at all the applications and picked the winners even before you get there. unless you win the nobel prize or something like that big right before the interview. Very conservative school.. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Louisville was a decent school, but I didn't leave there feeling enamored. There was nothing special about it. All the other schools I went to had some special feature that stood out. The people there were generally nice, and they arranged for discounted accomodations at some nice hotels. I just couldn't see myself going there. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I did not like the way the day was set up: about an hour of introduction/lecture by one person (who told too much extraneous information about back in the day, etc.) The financial aid session was informative, but then we had a tour, then lunch, and then we are supposed to have 3 interviews (I only had 2 -- my professor did the 2nd and 3rd). I also noticed that all the waiting rooms were virtually completely empty (on a Monday morning!) and all the facutly members were very old, which can be problematic if you are a female or a minority and they still hold very outdated beliefs (as was the case with my interviewer). My interview was pretty ridiculous." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a great time at the interview and really liked what I saw. I think the program is strong and that I would enjoy going to school in Louisville. As for their facilities, they have a nice sim lab, but part of their clinics are older. They are in the process of updating their clinics and said they would be finished by the time I needed them." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a long day but we learn a lot about the school. There is 3 interviews in between the interviews you sit in a room with other people getting interviewed. There's a lot of waiting." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviews were very relaxed, I was way to stressed out ahead of time." More from this Member | Report Response

"it was really good. it took a long time, so eat a good breakfast, but they feed you a good lunch too. everyone was very helpful and accomidating. ask any questions you can think of. also, the financial aid program here seems the most generous of all i've seen anywhere." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall was good except the interview with a snob (student). Everybody else was wonderful. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I arrived about 15 minutes before the interview and signed in. We had to wear nametags that said our home state. We were given a presentation by one of the faculty, a financial aid presentation, a tour, lunch, and then our interviews (one with a student, one with a faculty member, and then an exit interview). " More from this Member | Report Response

"Three interviews, two with faculty, and one with a student. The program really values what their students think." More from this Member | Report Response

"I got to hear a lot from current students and faculty alike. The actual interviews were relatively short and laid-back. The atmosphere was very conducive to being relaxed." More from this Member | Report Response

"The best presentation that I got anywhere. I learned a lot about a dental career and financial aid. Not just a dentist factory. Great learning atmosphere. Students are very happy to be there. One interview with a student, whic was closed file and very relaxed. One interview with faculty, who just is trying to get a sense of your personality. A final exit interview where they kind of give you an idea where you stand. They might ask you if you have been accepted anywhere else. I got the impression that unless you really put forth that it is your first choice, you will get wait listed or put on the next-to-be-called list (which is better to be on, and your chances are very high to be accepted)." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview experience was much less stressful than I had anticipated. We had presentations in the morning by the dean and financial aid lady, followed by a tour of the school. After lunch were the interviews. Each person had 2 interviews one-on-one with an adcom member and then a short exit interview. In my interviews, basically all we did was chat and get to know one another. They just asked the standard questions- why to you want to be a dentist, ect. One of my interviewers told me that they look at the interview as just a chance to get to know the personality of the applicants. Everyone who got an interview is already qualified on paper, so they use the interview to see if you have the personality to make a good dentist" More from this Member | Report Response

"U of L really impressed me. The student body is so diverse- from a father of four, to a former frat boy, to everything in between. Everyone was so nice and helpful, and most importantly, enthusiastic about their school. For the interview, all you need is confidence and a great personality, that's really what they're looking for. Also, if this is your first choice, make sure you let them know. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was awful! I'm a Kentucky resident and I was treated like some criminal. My DAT and gpa are much higher then their averages and they acted like they were doing a favor to me by interviewing me. I really did not like this school. Louisville is really boring. There is nothing to do in the city and most of the students are already married and have children. For sure going somewhere else. This school did not take." More from this Member | Report Response

"This school just makes you feel at home. How can you go wrong with that. Other schools should take note on how to interview properly. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The lunch was very generous, though we only had 15mins to eat it. A tour preceeds a set of three interviews with a admissions staffer, faculty member and current student." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviews were completely laid back. I was in one for 1.5 hours just talking!" More from this Member | Report Response

"ULSD was my first choice, but after the experience I had I'll have to reconsider. The school seemed nice enough but that one interviewer was a total jerk." More from this Member | Report Response

"My first interview was with a 4th year, my second with a faculty member. In both, I was not so much asked questions as it was a discussion between the interviewer and I. It wasn't stressful at all, I wasn't sitting there wondering "what are they going to ask next?!?"" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, it was great!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a great experience and really love the school. I really would love to go here but now I must wait and see. Everyone is so friendly and I just love the Southern accents! The day is really full and you are pretty much there the whole time. The morning was very informative with presentations." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day was really kinda fun. The interviews were low stress and relaxed...no hardball. The presentations and speakers were actually not that boring. Lunch could have been better. Overall, it was a great experience at a great school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The overall interview experience was positive, I would love to attend this school." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was so awesome. I love the school/students/faculty. I really hope that I get accepted. What a place to go to school! Really excited about the school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The experience was much more pleasant than I anticipated (for my first interview). During my first interview (with a faculty member), I can't say that the interview was very "conversational"...he was just asking me questions, but none of them were very hard hitting. My second interviewer was a 4th year student, one of the same students that toured us around the building. She was very nice and easygoing. Actually, all of the student interviewers that I met that day were extremely nice. So, all in all, if you have an interview at ULSD, don't worry about it at all. I know now that I was nervous for no reason!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very laid back, informative, friendly, overall positive. I even saw a baby gorilla at the Louisville Zoo while touring the city." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very good school in helping students, good board score average, and good clinic training!" More from this Member | Report Response

"very laid back and freindly. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a very good impression of the school before my interviews. After the day, I was confused and even though I felt that I had done well, I wasn't sure if it was where I wanted to be for four years." More from this Member | Report Response

"I enjoyed seeing the school, and got a great vibe from the faculty and students." More from this Member | Report Response

"very good. I would seriously condider going there with an acceptance." More from this Member | Report Response

"I like that they have "gone green" giving you any information you need (financial aid powerpoint, welcoming powerpoint, about Louisville powerpoint) on a flashdrive. That helped eliminate the need to write things down as well as allowed you to pay attention. The lunch was just so-so. I maybe would have had a greater variety of sandwiches."
