"The facilities were awesome, truely one of the best schools out there. Clinical labs were amazing, great opportunities to do research (not required though) if interested. Even though there was 60 other applicants that day I didn't feel stressed or that I wasn't getting personal attention from the students or staff. Everyone there was so friendly and helpful, they really wanted us all to have a positive view of the school while we were there and all I heard were good things. All of the other people I met interviewing said UNC was their top pick, even the out of state applicants. They also pick really well rounded applicants with very diverse backgrounds, I was impressed by a lot of them. " More from this Member | Report Response

"How friendly and relaxed everybody was, including the interviewees. I felt that the social function the night before helped to ease the nervousness and allowed students and interviewees to chat openly during the day on Saturday. The faculties are amazing and the students really seemed excited about being at UNC. Our tour guides couldn't say enough good things. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was extremley nice, welcoming, they were all great. The facility is top notch.

Good specialty placement, like 35% I believe go into specialties. Very strong clinical emphasis (start 1st yr)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is first class. There is a high level of professionalism. A relaxed process, but you could tell that they were serious about what they do. They are very proud of their school, and they should be. Many of the tools used and the dental textbooks written came from faculty and former faculty. Very good balance between clinical training and an ahead of the curve research facility. This is definitely not a dentist factory. Also, they will help you if you are having academic problems. The Chapel Hill area is a great combination of small town charm and big city amenities." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was impressed with the fact that neither of the faculty interviewers were out to "grill" me and the first one I had voluntarily conducted a closed file interview in order to remain "unbiased" about me.

"I flew in, rented a car, and stayed in a hotel to be interviewed by people my age!?!?!?!? I was interviewed by 1 third year student and one 2nd year student!!!! This was not very cool cuz they were my age and are NOT dentists yet. I also interviewed with as associate proffessor who seemed basically indifferent to my presence. Very snooty and cold place."

"Too many people for an interview. The interview process seemed very impersonal and hectic at times." More from this Member | Report Response

"the interview itself is a bit impersonal. You end up being 1 of about 60 interviewees during the day and it's easy to get lost in the crowd. Admittedly the admissions staff knows the process used is quirky and relatively unpredictable." More from this Member | Report Response

"Having to buy the school's pricey laptop, although I can understand the need for having everyone using the same software (no conflicts, etc.). Also, boards after the 1st year mean it'll be a rough first year. " More from this Member | Report Response

"For clarification purposes, there are three 30 minute interviews scheduled for the half day process; one of which is by a student. I felt that the student was rather brash and almost a little bit rude- perhaps the fact that I am a non-science major (while she was a double Biology and Chemistry major in college) and that I chose to speak about non-science topics made her uncomfortable since she evidently either didn't care about what I was saying or lacked the background knowledge to "connect" with what I was talking about. Either way, I got the impression from other older dental students that the student interview really does not matter all that much. Also, you should know that about 75 people are invited to interview during each of the 4 Saturdays relgated for the process and although everything is very efficent and smooth, you get the impression that you are just a number and nothing else."

"cost? but its worth it" More from this Member | Report Response

"The amount of people there being interviewed (about 75)," More from this Member | Report Response

"How to get to the school, Chapel Hill streets run like a maze." More from this Member | Report Response

"They split everyone into 4 groups and we all had different interview schedules, some people had all of their interviews in the first 2 hours while some had them at the end of the day. Be prepared because you might have your first interview at 8 am with all three interviews back-to-back, thankfully that didn't happen with me. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. I prepared myself for any scenario (and slept little the night before!). Although it's not my plan right now, I didn't know that they had such success with matching into specialty programs." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was nothing that I wished I had known about. Just make sure you have plenty of questions ready to ask your interviewer if the conversation starts lagging- they really do expect you to ask them questions(this is really important)! One more thing, they gave us the break down of how they evaluate you in terms of your competitivness during a power point presentation by Dr. Guckes, the Dean of admissions, which stated that your science GPA counts for 30% (along with any trends in grades), DAT scores count for 30% and interview counts as 40%. This info is not available anywhere else." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students were at a fall break so I was unable to see student life at the campus." More from this Member | Report Response

"No specific campus housing. Students have to live in apartments." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, I went there undergrad and was always impressed with the facilities but not with the faculty and I still feel the same way. Things are very clinical and no one "treats you like family" here. Also, the students seem very competitive with eachother and like to blow their own horns." More from this Member | Report Response

"my dream school!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"This school was unreal, and I would highly suggest applying there even though it is extremely competitive as an OOS student. They are the best of both worlds (world renowned, great COA). I was lucky enough to interview at many other outstanding programs, but UNC definitely stood out." More from this Member | Report Response

"Loved this school!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I think the interview is more a personality exam than a gauge of your abilities to interview. They seem to be trying to figure out who you are personally and how you would fit within their upcoming class. Be yourself, because that's (most likely) why you got a interview in the first place." More from this Member | Report Response

"Compared to the other three interviews I have been to, I felt the most comfortable interviewing with the two faculty members and student, mostly because they were genuinely interested in getting to know me and my aspirations and personality. One interview ended up running overtime because we were so engaged in our conversation. It was definitely a good sign! I believe the clinical training is second to none. They start you early and provide you with a lot of exposure in the specialities (all are represented at the school!), which is one of the main reasons I chose UNC." More from this Member | Report Response

"Review your application. Many of the questions I was asked related specifically to my application" More from this Member | Report Response

"An overall great experience. They are definitely my number one choice." More from this Member | Report Response

"I loved the school overall! It is a top five school consistently. They are doing some renovations that will be completed in 2012. I would also encourage all interviewees to attend the student mixer the night before. It really helped to put me at ease before the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"My advice to the administration: Make the applicants feel desirable. At all my other interviews the school told the applicants why they were chosen for interviews and what they liked about each one of us. They discussed our files in the personal interviews and addressed our strong points. UNC simply said here are average statistics. If your in-state you have a 25% chance of getting in. Out of state a little higher now that you have been invited on an interview. Impress us and show us something special or you won't get in. Good luck " More from this Member | Report Response

"Make sure you have answers for the general questions like, ''why dentistry?'', and ''why UNC?''. But, be careful not to let the know that have just memorized an answer...pause for a few seconds, think and answer. Be honest, smile(when appropriate!), and be polite and show some enthusiasm."

"great experience; interviews were more conversations...very relaxed; unc is one of the best d-schools and a no brainer for in-staters; " More from this Member | Report Response

"It's an excellent school with a significant competion among out-of-state applicants. Cost is reasonable and facilities are great. World-renowned faculty. The day is very well organized and runs very smoothly. One student interviewer, closed-file. 2 faculty/staff interviews, open-file. Faculty had read my file and knew a lot of things about me and could recall things as we talked. Some very thought-provoking conversations with the faculty about dentistry. It's a top school and a no-brainer for in-staters." More from this Member | Report Response

"Positive, laid-back, and straightforward." More from this Member | Report Response

"There were 60 of us there and we had 3 individual interviews, 2 with staff and 1 with a student. The student interview is closed file and but the faculty ones are open. The school is amazing. It was the most stressful interview I went to. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Very good experience, they really try to make it as stress free as possible. Make sure you know about the state of dentistry in NC esp if you in state. They WILL ask you questions to see if you know what's going on in the state. Defn my top pick after the interview. " More from this Member | Report Response

"great. there is an optional friday night social, which i highly recommend attending. there are a lot of current unc students you can speak with along with speaking with 60 other predents. saturday you are split up into 4 groups and you rotate b/t 3 interviews, a tour, a student panel, a presentation, and a couple of breaks. the 2 faculty interviews are open-file and the student interview is closed-file. on saturday morning they have this insane breakfast spread for everyone to munch on throughout the day. it was very well organized and shed the school in a terrific light!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall highly organized, clean experince where there are three interviews. Each was at least 30 minutes long. Each interviewer was familiar with my file, and had unique things to say about UNC. Overall this was the best interview conducted I had participated in. I had heard this so nothing surprised me, it simply corroborated my assertion that UNC is one of the absolute TOP dental schools in the country." More from this Member | Report Response

"It went well, I already knew what to expect from having interviewed there before." More from this Member | Report Response

"There's a lot of student being interviewed, but very organized. The first interview is done by a students, which is good because they help you relax. There are breaks between each of the 3 interviews. Overall the faculty and students are very laid back. The whole interviewing process goes by pretty quick! The campus is beautiful, and the school is diverse. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Low stress easy conversational" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school with a great faculty and great facilities. The faculty really cares about their students and I sensed that they try very hard to turn them into good dentists. I also enjoyed that it was less stressful than I had imagined. I was still nervous, but in a good way. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Its very good. It was my first interview. I went in BLIND, not knowing anything and I left feeling I left my mark. I got a chance to talk to a million students, professors, and even spent 30 minutes talking to asst. dean, which you cant at most schools. Overall, apply here if you have the grades. You will love it, its a top school and you will love it." More from this Member | Report Response

"A waste of time because I did not get in. I was irritated by the condesending student interviewers. They interview like 80 people at a time and that sucks too!!! Every other dental school that I went to at least tried to make the interview seem a little bit about me and not how great the school is. But its cheap and good, so whatever." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was in a group of 64 total applicants and we were broken down into 4 subgroups that toured together and had similar interview schedules. Two faculty/staff interviews 30 min each and one student interview 30 min in length. Excellent interview experience. Very welcoming and happy that you are interested in their school. Students, faculty, and staff are very professional and helpful. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The 2 faculty interviews and 1 student interview were very informal and low stress. All interviews were conversational and I felt the faculty was interested in me as a person, and not just another applicant that they had to ask the same set of questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"There were a total of 64 other interviewees at this school for my interview. We were split into 4 different groups and had our own schedule. It seemed very hectic, but well-structured. At the sametime, I didn't get the personal interaction that I expect from visiting a prospective dental school. All in all, this school seems to be proud of their tradition and personifies their perspective of excellence. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Excellent school, smooth interview process that could be a little more personal." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had 2 faculty interviewers and one student interview. One professor was extremely nice - I felt like he was trying to be very honest about the school, yet he was more responsible for my overall impression of the school than anything else. The other professor was not personable at all. He just lobbed questions at me and didn't even make much eye contact. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was very good. Chapel Hill remains one of my top choices, it has great clinics, top professors and nice students." More from this Member | Report Response

"2 faculty and then a student interview. They were all relatively low-key conversations, but I did feel a bit of pressure." More from this Member | Report Response

"3 interviews 30 mins each, but more like 20-25. Very organized day, but lots of interviewees there, oddly lots of out of staters too. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was my very first interview date, so I was a little anxious to say the least (the stress level I picked above had more to do with me than the school). But all of the interviews were very relaxed and conversational. Total of three interviews: 1 with student (closed), 2 with faculty (open). No really probing questions, just trying to get a sense of who you are, and your personality. In fact, during my last interview, we mostly talked about books we were reading at the time. Oh yeah, if you don't already, learn to love basketball!" More from this Member | Report Response

"You need to arrive at the dental school by 7:45 on a Saturday morning. Once there, the staff has set out a long table with a continental style breakfast available for you if that's something you are interested in. You then approach the information desk and check in; you are assigned a group number 1-3, are given a name tag, and a schedule based on your group number. The half day extravaganza is divided into 30 minute increments with 3 interviews, a tour of the school, a financial aid talk, and a student question and answer session at the very end. Overall, I was very impressed with the faculty, the facilities, and low stress atmosphere of the situation." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great solid academics backed by a plethora of clinical training. The school is working hard to stay up to date and access modern technologies. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Great experience and great school. Interview was conducted with 59 other candidates, so it was a little overwhelming at first. But the day was so organized, that it flew by. Both my faculty interviewers were awesome and really nice. UNC is top three in schools I would like to be accepted to and possibly attend." More from this Member | Report Response

"it was an amazing experience. The school is awesome and the interview day was the best I've had so far. The facilities are top notch and the school prides itself in producing great dentists. The area is beautiful and the students are smart. " More from this Member | Report Response

"the reception on friday night was great. the school, and campus is really nice and clean looking. folks around are so nice and willing to help. they were very organized, and everything flowed very well. there were about 40 people interviewing, so it was fun to talk to people about where they are from and such. the students were really willing to answer any question you asked." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, not bad. The facilities and faculty are great, but the interview process needs to be refined. However, if I get in I would defininently attend. The school is great, I just dont like the admissions process." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall it was a nice experience and I do reccommend the school because it has excellent facilities and a great reputation. Good luck if you are out-of-state. You know the feeling you get when you find that dental school that is just right for you and you feel very much at home there? Well I did not have that feeling while interviewing at Carolina but maybe you will:) " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a positive experience. The school is excellent and the day was very organized. The interviews were very conversational." More from this Member | Report Response

"Expect the common interview questions - Why dentistry? What do you do in your free time, etc. Know your stuff when it comes to medicaid and NC dentistry. Very relaxed, and use the atmosphere to your advantage. I was accepted in 12/03 to UNC" More from this Member | Report Response
