They have everything backed up 3-fold so there don't seem to be computer issues-the bugs have been worked out. The students have influence on the direction of the curriculm and have a real sense of worth. The faculty treats them as equals. Every note and textbook is in electronic form.

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"No cafeteria or cafes on campus" More from this Member | Report Response

"Crazy high tuition" More from this Member | Report Response

"bad area, but close to strip" More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really" More from this Member | Report Response

"Some students said if they had a choice they would go else where. During the financial aid section the speaker made it sound like we would 'easily' pay back our loans and that most students only have about $150,000 in debt when they graduate which is totally inaccurate. Very turned off by the school trying to brush the issue of cost aside." More from this Member | Report Response

"Students didn't seem too excited about the school. Most of them seemed to pick the school because it was close to home." More from this Member | Report Response

"The student interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"The student's didn't really seem too invested in the school. They didn't have much of a gung-ho attitude about the program. When I asked several students about why they chose UNLV over other schools, they didn't mention anything about the school, the staff, or the curriculum. Instead, they talked about how UNLV was close to home and they didn't want to be far from their wives, kids, parents, etc." More from this Member | Report Response

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

"OOS tuition, but gaining residency is doable. Weather." More from this Member | Report Response

"A lot of D1 students were there, and they had only been at the school for three weeks. They weren't really able to answer a lot of our questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"Student interviewer, he didn't seem like he was listening at all while I was talking. Looking everywhere but at me while I was talking and just kept checking his phone. Why was this kid on the admissions committee?" More from this Member | Report Response

"lunch" More from this Member | Report Response

"Vague financial aid presentation The student who was giving my tour was a D-1 and seemed lost. Pre-doc's don't do molar endo. Not a big negative, but I'd prefer something more typical for lunch like some subs rather than thanksgiving dinner." More from this Member | Report Response

"COST" More from this Member | Report Response

"no library to study; tour was rather short and not very extensive; you stay in one room the whole day during dental school; expensive tuition" More from this Member | Report Response

"Cost of tuition, no library (you have to go to the main campus)" More from this Member | Report Response

"-The students who gave us the tour kind of rushed through the whole thing, so we didn't get a chance to see all the facilities thoroughly. -UNLV does not have a cadaver lab. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The neighborhood surrounding the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not many places to study." More from this Member | Report Response

"Neighborhood O.K." More from this Member | Report Response

"curriculum was diff from asdoh. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I heard the Dean wants 50/50 ratio of male to female.....affirmative action here we come! Why am I punished over gender? Like I had a choice in the matter?" More from this Member | Report Response

"Male to female ratio is horrible. A admissions committee member looked as if she did not want to be there. Perhaps a genuine smile would have been nice. Lunch wasn't good." More from this Member | Report Response

"location, 4 year old program, faculty interviewer, lack of specialty," More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing. except maybe traffic :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"new school so they were changing rules around...but for the better!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much, there is no cafeteria or cafe on the campus....but that isn't the worst thing that a dental school could be lacking." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much -- the day didn't strictly follow the schedule, but they were trying to coordinate 20 applicants as opposed to a smaller interview group. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The students seemed a little stressed out. The student that interviewed me kept saying how little time she had outside of her studies." More from this Member | Report Response

"1)Very expensive school. 2)Sense of unfriendly competition." More from this Member | Report Response

"The Cost. This is a pricey one" More from this Member | Report Response

"The integrated curriculum may not be for everyone. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much" More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"the second year students were way stressed out. the school is abig construction site, some bums were puking all over right out side the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Students in T shirts and jeans. I think dress codes are a good thing. " More from this Member | Report Response

"They just got rid of their student gym on-sight and don't expect to replace it (nursing student facilities will replace it). No cafeteria on-sight." More from this Member | Report Response

"Ghetto, spanish lessons first year mandatory, and No Cafeteria!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing real negative, I mean, the school is still new so it seems like they're still manipulating their curriculum quite a bit." More from this Member | Report Response

"None for me." More from this Member | Report Response

"The location" More from this Member | Report Response

"The tuition is high even for instate, but it is worth it. I am interviewing for the waitlist." More from this Member | Report Response

"It's in Las Vegas." More from this Member | Report Response

"The male to female ratio. (A lot more men, yet a lot of women were administrators - just strange.) " More from this Member | Report Response

"Not Diversed d-students." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school location, think multi-million dollar building surrounded by bumbs! The dean (sort off, he's already taken up a new position), just look at him gave me the chills. And the head of admissions, she was very rude looking, and did not smile at all." More from this Member | Report Response

"the lack of diversity at the school (it was mostly white male...), there is no gym or cafe at the school. no scholarship b/c no alummi assoication yet... " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour and the thought of the dean leaving to take the position at UOP...which he now has done so there is no dean (kind of uneasy about that)" More from this Member | Report Response

"the area of the school. it was a little depressing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Location. COST and COST. New school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"THe location of the school was in a less than desirable location, but I am not planing onliving close by." More from this Member | Report Response

"the neighborhood is a little shady.. no on-site cafeteria except for a small sandwich shop, can only use internet during lunch time, student is not diverse enough" More from this Member | Report Response

"It's a new school and they are still trying to fix problems." More from this Member | Report Response

"The location being so close to the strip" More from this Member | Report Response

"There were too many males at the school. Couldn't really sit in on one of the lectures." More from this Member | Report Response

"Every time I asked about the clinic side of the program I get the run around. Maybe, they are so new that they don't know yet???" More from this Member | Report Response

"Las Vegas" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school environment is extremely hectic...I don't think that is a negative thing, only that it seems as though if you go there, you better really be on top of your game if you want to survive." More from this Member | Report Response

"not enough diversity. 60-70% white. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Some of the students didn't seem very professional." More from this Member | Report Response

"Dr. Ancajas was very rude in her interview with me. More interested in the answering her cell phone then talking to me. Asked a few very unprofessional and personal questions, that bothered be a bit. High cost of tutition. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Just the fact that its a young school." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a weird feeling at this interview that I didn't really get at other schools...It seemed as though the faculty was indifferent as to whether or not I, or even the group of candidates as a whole chose UNLV. " More from this Member | Report Response

"52% of the class is married...." More from this Member | Report Response

"they weren't organized. The speakers came in at their own time. There was no one to really guide you when you arrive at the school. I felt like I was in class for 4 hours because all you do is listen to people speak." More from this Member | Report Response

"price isn't that great for nevada residents. they are new and need to work out the kinks. the committee is considering a 17 and 50 year old!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"My student interviewer seemed incredibly bored and disinterested in what I had to say. He kept leaning lower and lower on the table like he wanted to take a nap. I also really didn't like the location and the fact that the student body was an older crowd." More from this Member | Report Response

"Their only class that have taken the boards didn't do too hot. They "expect" to see improvements." More from this Member | Report Response

"Still working out some problems there. I wasn't too worried about it, though. " More from this Member | Report Response

"no cafeteria to buy food on campus, only vending machines...there are microwaves and refridgerators though" More from this Member | Report Response

"Expensive." More from this Member | Report Response

"the cost" More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour of the school was very fast and the students that gave the tour didn't really want to be giving the tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"We were really rushed during the tour - practically running." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school had no track record, they mentioned that they were so new that they did not complile a senior class schedule. They mentioned that they take a lot of input from the students about the shape of the curriculum, while I appreciate the faculty's openness to student input, I felt that it was a little excessive. I was also shocked to learn that UNLV is one of the more expensive dental schools, yet the admissions staff made several comments that made you question the financial stability of the school. Finally, too much attention was paid to the fact that they are "100% Paperless." It was like being told come here because our charts are a pretty color and we have a neat picture on our textbooks. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Cost of living. Especially for out of state residents. It's over $70,000 a year. Yikes." More from this Member | Report Response

"the cost of living and tution" More from this Member | Report Response

"Although the real dental building will open in May, we did not really get a chance to see it." More from this Member | Report Response

"PRICE PRICE PRICE!!! Although Dr. Davenport gave very convincing justification for it in that the architects of the school want to make the school autonomus from the fickle Nevada state legislature!!! " More from this Member | Report Response

"TUITON! TUITION! TUITION! I was sooo mad to discover how much in-state tuition was and that there were no school scholarships or grants. I so wanted UNLV to be at the top of my list but I had to drop it down a few notches knowing I could get a cheaper education being an out-of-state student at a more established and accredited institution. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Surprisingly expensive considering it's a state school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"the price" More from this Member | Report Response

"VERY disorganized presentation and VERY unorthodox interview for me. We started about 15-20 minutes late and it seemed each person went over their allotted time. Consequently, our tour was rushed and I arrived to my interview 5 minutes late. When introduced to my interviewer, he began interviewing me outside and with a dental student standing right there! This led to some awkward questions and answers. Frankly, I was pissed that the student didn't excuse himself. We finally went into his office (with some prodding from me) but he left his door open. As faculty and students passed by and even walked into the office, my answers were frequently interrupted and I had to regroup and get back on track. I felt this was somewhat unprofessional. He was a very nice guy though and seemed to be genuinely interested in why I was interested in dentistry. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Absolutely nothing. (Well I guess that I didn't actually get to SEE the new building, but that is out of their control)." More from this Member | Report Response

"When I was there, I was walking around outside from building to building to tour the temp campus (100+ weather). They will have the shadow campus up by next year though." More from this Member | Report Response

"No facilities, the dental students were learning in room next to where the custodial crew was tuning lawn mowers, and only a moveable partition kept the rooms apart." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the interviews were going to be so relaxed. We're graded on a 1-5 scale and both the faculty and student interviews are worth the same amount of points. The faculty that interviewed me kept saying I had great stats and that I'll get into a dental school.

"Tuition at the school does not give you what you pay for. Out-of-state is over 50K!!!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"There is a biochem requirement for acceptence into the program, so take it if you have not already. Also, a 1200 square foot home in Vegas and the surrounding area goes for about $207,000, which is a ton coming from were I live." More from this Member | Report Response

"they accepted quite a few students already." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish that I had known how new the school is. I would also recommend that you try to arrange for a taxi ahead of time, otherwise you are in for a bit of a wait. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Again, the price, although I was told by current students you could pay it off quick." More from this Member | Report Response

"UNLV has no summer break. Not a dealbreaker but the students all seemed excessively stressed. The school's disorganization made this seem unwarranted." More from this Member | Report Response

"great school and interviews" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall interview day wss very relaxing and fun. Student interview was fun and great. We just had a conversation! No question was asked. Faculty interview was good too but little stressful because of their tone and just atmosphere in a room..UNLVSDM is s grest school!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Awesome school!! I hope to attend!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Did not like the dishonesty by the financial aid person." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was much more impressed with the school after visiting." More from this Member | Report Response

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

"Our tour was given by D1 students who had only been there like 3 weeks, and they didn't show us the clinic or other basic things. They kept getting lost which made it hard to get a good feel of the school" More from this Member | Report Response

"cool, new school" More from this Member | Report Response

"the interview day really got me stoked about possibly attending UNLV. the admissions committee wants you to attend the place that's best for you and your learning style, something I think was noble of them to point out, especially when for many of us, it was our first interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"great presentation of the school; Dr. Kingsley stole the show!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I really liked the school and I can see myself going there for the next 4 years." More from this Member | Report Response

"UNLV is a wonderful program and everyone there is super friendly." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was very laid back and informal. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Very relaxed and easy interviews. They simply want to see who you really are. If you go, I advise just trying to have a conversation not a formal interview. Relax!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I had two interviews at separate times: a student and a prof. both were really relaxed and informal. I loved the professors who presented and the students who took us on tour. they're all really happy to be there." More from this Member | Report Response

"I loved the school! Great facilities, faculty and students. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Great School!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Presentations. Lunch. Tour. Interviews. I was impressed by the facilities. Do the staff members have much to offer? Who knows. It seems like the number 1 aspect of the school is that everything is digital. So what?" More from this Member | Report Response

"This is a GREAT school. I seriously hope I get in~it's better than the other two schools I interviewed at. I left this school with a stronger desire to be a dentist." More from this Member | Report Response

"awesome, loved it" More from this Member | Report Response

"There were two different interviews, one from faculty and one from a 3rd or 4th year student. I thought this was genius. The faculty one was open file and was pretty personal. They really wanted to get to know me which was excellent and referred a lot to my personal statement. The student interview was more to kind of dig a little deeper and see if you really meant business/could hack it in dental school. My experience may have differed with other students since there were 20 of us and 10 different interviewers for each interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a real positive experience. Students and faculty alike seemed real happy to be there. All of the full-time faculty I met have been there at least 3 years (minus Dean West who just arrived last spring). They've retained loyalty to the school, because they really like being there. That says a lot. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I thought the interview was very positive. Both the faculty and student that interviewed me were nice and we shared certain commonalities (the faculty was from my home state and the I speak the students native language). I don't know if that was done intentionally or not, but it certainly helped. The faculty member talked a lot - it was hard to fit a word in edge-wise. The student seemed a little stoic and serious." More from this Member | Report Response

"So you basically meet with and talk to all of the other predental students in this big auditorium at the beginning and find out that the majority of them are either Mormon or go to a Mormon school then... 1)Overview of school and dental statistics with Brownstein/Ancajas. 2)Overview of financial aid with really cool/laid back black guy. 3)Overview of curriculum by very nice and funny, "colorful" guy who will make you laugh. 4)Quick lunch of deli sandwhiches, chips, soda/water, pickle, and a chocolaty pastry thing. 5)Quick tour of the school with students. 6)Interviews with students or faculty who will rate you 1-5 on how you did on the interview. They may or may not be on the actual admissions committee. Doesn't really matter though cause they are all very nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"So laid back. Both student and faculty interviewers were extremely helpful and friendly. They want to know about who you are as a person and whether or not UNLV is a good fit for." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was great." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviews were very enjoyable. Both the dental student and professor made the interview more of a get-to-know-you session, where you as the prospective student were able to steer the direction of the interview towards areas in which you thought were important. I like this type of interview more than others because you get to ask pertinent questions and find out more about the school itself, rather than the interviewer trying to stump you with numerous difficult questions that do not really reflect your personality or desire to enter into the dental field." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, excellent!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Laid back and stress free" More from this Member | Report Response

"Exciting!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Over all my interview experience was great..I like las vegas..or maybe I should say i love las vegas and the school itself was great also" More from this Member | Report Response

"UNLV interview is one of the most informative and impressive interviews,its layed back, youll get alot out of it, and come away understanding alot more about the process." More from this Member | Report Response

"Ok, first let me say that I went into the interview not expecting much and I left with this school being my second choice. I loved the technology focus at this school, it just makes sense to have records kept electronically. People mentioned that the school is in a bad part of town. So what? That to me is a plus, where else are you going to put a low cost clinic to attract future patients? You dont have to live next door. Also I read some things about a gay professor making them feel uncomfortable. Personally speaking, I think his part of the presentation was the best. It also turned out that he was my faculty interviewer and he was really cool and very funny. I got out of the interview at 2 pm. Lunch was sandwiches, cookies, chips, and sodas, all you could eat. Anyways, I was highly impressed and am seriously considering going there. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Pretty good. My legs fell asleep because we spent a real long time sitting through the first few speakers in the morning. All the other interviewees and our student interviewers were very nice. The student interview was closed file except for my personal statement so we spent a lot of time rehashing information about my volunteer work, leadership experience and DAT and GPA scores. He also asked a lot of questions about strengths, weaknesses, etc. Faculty interview was very laid back." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day was very disorganized, gay professor offended me and made me feel way uncomfortable. Dean was in and out of presentation after getting there late." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviews were about what you would expect from any dental school. No real surprising questions. One interview was with a student, which I think is just more of a question-asking opportunity for the applicant." More from this Member | Report Response

"The presentations were informative and entertaining. The students had only good things to say about the faculty members. The facilities were REALLY state of the art. I read about it but didn't know what that meant until I actually witnessed it. Both my interviewers were very nice and understanding. I actually enjoyed my interviews because I got to know each of them as a person and the school better. People complain about the area, but I think it's good to have the strip nearby for events such as weekend dinners with the significant other or friend. It rained when I went. I love the rain, so it made the experience even more enjoyable." More from this Member | Report Response

"In overall, the experience was great and I loved the school. The facilites and paper less lectures is very new and modern. Since the school is new, they are implementing the new ideas and technologies for the future dentists." More from this Member | Report Response

"Dr. Ancajas did a good job, I learned a few things I didn't know. Dr. Kingsly was funny. The two one-to-one interviews were good, I enjoyed talking to the faculty and getting to know them better. Overall I had a good time and I hope I make it for 2006" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was very open. They outlined their place in the admission process and statistics for admission. We were breifed on Financial Aid stuff (really boring-if you've been through one interview, you've already heard everything they will say). Next came a briefing on their curriculum and a school tour. I liked having the interview at the end of the day. It allowed me to have questions ready that were relevant and informed. My husband and I spent a few hours looking at neighborhoods and found they all look alike. We come from Seattle where there is topography. There are no reference points when driving through town...but it's sunny!" More from this Member | Report Response

"First, I was interviewed by a student. It was very comfortable. He asked questions regarding grades, but it was easy to talk to him. Second, I was interviewed by an administrator. Initially, she was hard and intimidating with her questions, but then she loosened up. I think she even cracked a smile. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is really really new, and it has the newest technology and facilities. However, the d-students are not diversed, primary white males." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview was more like quiz. Instead of trying to know me, they felt the admission would be better suited to quiz me on different sinarios. The thing that was odd was that I had a group interview, where as UNLV does one-on-one interviews." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was good. My faculty interviewer was very nice. Students were cool and helpful." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very impressed with school. The faculty that we met were very enthusiastic about the school. The students seemed pretty nice. The interview is so laid back that you dont even know your being interviewed. I liked the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"good atmosphere and presentation, but tour was short and uninformative" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was great. I stayed at the palace station hotel. It was ok. I would suggest somewhere else. The school and facultly are nice. They treat you like like their colleague. My interview was with Dr. Ord and he was very friendly. The interview itself was very conversational and didn't ask anything out of the ordinary. By the way...a guy followed me to my room! So girls becareful if you are by yourself!" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was very low stress. They made it sound very good." More from this Member | Report Response

"The faculty and students make you feel welcome. The school is very nice, and everything is state-of-the-art. The integrative, concept based classes are something unique to UNLV. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I loved everything about the school. The faculy was so friendly that I was not stressed out at all, and I didn't feel like I was under the hot light during the interview. At UNLV they really care about the students and they do everything they can to make the interview a great experience" More from this Member | Report Response

"presentation was given, mostly about applicant stats... selection factors etc.. then lunch, faculty interviewer and then student interviewer.. then a presentation by a student" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was intersting and very relaxing. The tour was ruched due to time, but the student that interviewed my( Your Awesome BTW) gave me an excellent tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"the students and faculty are exceedingly friendly and everybody is extremely helpful. the professors don't treat you like a low life form... they actually want to develop a life-long colleague relationship with you. the clinic is big and everyone gets a lot of hands-on experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall it was great! The interviews were laid back and the faculty seemed like they really want you to attend their school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, it went as good as I would want my first interview to go. The presentations were interesting and well done. The interviews went well, very laid back, not stressful at all." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was a loooooong presentation. Then there was lunch and a tour. Then interviews. I'm not sure how competent the faculty members are. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I'm not sure if because my interviews were extremely laid back that I am going to get accepted or if I just got people that didn't seem to care about the process. Overall, I was impressed with the campus and the program, but it is very expensive to live in Vegas." More from this Member | Report Response

"We had a student and a faculty interview. The student simply asked some questions and basically I asked most of the questions. The faculty interview was really nice and she asked about some of my info in my essay but other then that it was alot of simple conversation." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day was well-organized and the presentations by admissions and faculty were very informative. While both my interviewers were somewhat challenging, they were also very positive and encouraging. Both my interviews ended with: "We really want to see you here next year..." (!)" More from this Member | Report Response

"great low stress experience. laid back." More from this Member | Report Response

"enjoyed it a lot...gave me a better impression of the school" More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a great experience during both my student interview and faculty interview. Some of the toughest questions came from the student. I was interviewed by Dr. Ancajas, director of Admissions, whe was friendly to me and just wanted to get to know me better. I thought she acted very professional but still had a sense of humor. I am currently trying to get residency here and she was helpful and encouraging. I went away impressed by the faculty and school as a whole." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview did not go well. Was very disappointed in the interviewer, especially knowing she is the director of admissions. UNLV is on the bottom of my list." More from this Member | Report Response

"i was nervous at first, but as the day went by, everyone was cool and made it very comfortable...school is beautiful!" More from this Member | Report Response

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

"The student interview was very relaxed and went very well as did the faculty interview. These I was impressed with; it was the events that occurred the rest of the day (things didn't seemed planned out well and I didn't know if it was time to stay or go home) coupled with the high price that were unimpressive." More from this Member | Report Response

"Dr Ancajas was very nice and cordial. She was kind enough to tell me that I had a "good interview", keeping me hopeful even though my application is not the strongest. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I had Dr. Ancajas as my interviewer. Anyone who has her will tell you that if you can get her to smile, you're in. well, I was Dr. Ancajas' last student to interview, it was the end of the day, so we're all tired. She's great, but the interview atmosphere was a little serious (she's the director of admissions). " More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was excited to be at this school. The school was state of the art with all the new technology. The students have plenty of clinical experience. All the faculty were AWESOME. There are no negative aspects to any of the faculty." More from this Member | Report Response

"even though the school is still too new and they are considering students who are too young and too old, they have to most up-to-date equipment and school. my interviewers were extremely nice, laid back, and were excited that i want to be a dentist. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The reason I am posting this message is because a student posted an interview message on this forum and commented about Dr. Ancajas-director of admissions...It was very rude and wrong....the person that wrote it should not be a dentist and should get some therapy....I know Dr. Ancajas personally and she is a nice and good person......" More from this Member | Report Response

"MY FIRST INTERVIEWER WAS ON THE BALL. MY SECOND INTERVIEW WAS ENJOYABLE(DR. HERSHAFT) HE IS AN HONEST AND DOWN TO EARTH PERSON. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The whole day was very laid-back. We had talks on the cirriculum and financial aid as well as a tour of the school. We were provided with lunch and then had a faculty and student interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"He gave me only 2 questions and I spent the rest of the time asking him questions about the school. Basically, they had the expected kinks that you would see in a starting school, so it was a toss up decision whether i should go or not. But then the phone rang and he decided to talk on it for quite a while. How rude." More from this Member | Report Response

"Gave this school this ranking because I just didn't feel the spark of interest from the faculty or students. I felt like everybody, besides the dean of the school, wished that they could be somewhere else." More from this Member | Report Response

"My faculty interview went very well, it was conversational, positive, and informative. My student interview was short, it seemed as if my interviewer was uninterested and had other things on his mind. " More from this Member | Report Response

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

"one interview was stressful and the other one not. It's a conversational format so be prepared for lots of interuptions when you are giving your answers" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was the best! They truley try to sale the school to you showing you everything you need to know to make and informed choice." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview was very conversational. " More from this Member | Report Response

"All in all, the people were very friendly. There was a lot of energy here. However, the lack of a track record really is unnerving. The whole experience was errily reflected in the tour of the school, which was led by a first year student who kept getting us lost. You kept getting the impression that there was too much going on, and you would begin to wonder if they could be forgetting something important in all of the chaos. It should be noted that I think in a few years, once the bugs have been worked out, this could be a top-notch school, however, I would advise caution for the immediate future. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Awesome. I just wish I get accepted. SIGH. Cross my fingers and hope to die! err live! Even though the cost is hella expensive, I think it's worth 4 years of quality education and a DMD license. KEEKEEKEE." More from this Member | Report Response

"We had 3 different presentations, admissions, curriculum and financial aid. After lunch we had a tour then each of us had a 30 min student interview then a 30 min faculty interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall was very impressive." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very good overall....hope I get in....Would be nice to be involved with a startup project and in shaping our own school!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"UNLV is going to be a great dental school and has a very innovative approach to its curriculum. The price is out of control though. The people are great especially Dr. Kingsley. Wherever I end up will be great as long as I can take Dr. Kingsley along with me and those of you who have interviewed there know exactly what I mean!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The lady admissions person Dr. Ancajas was really cool and helpful about explaining specific detailed q's, such as about their DMD/MBA program. Overall, it's the best interview I've been to (out of three others)" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was wanting to be blown away and sold. Neither happened. Some of these "inadequacies" should be forgiven based on the fact that this is a newer school and their dean of clinical sciences recently passed away. We were also the last interview group so I think they were racing to add people last second. Very lukewarm experience for me." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was one of my best interview experiences yet. The faculty was incredibly nice which made me feel right at home. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I was positively impressed with UNLV's program. In my opinion, an interview says a lot about a school. The interview at UNLV was VERY well organized and prepared and gaves tons of information on application statistics, accreditation, tuition/fin aid, student life, and cirriculum. From 930 to about noon we were given presentations on powerpoint. We then toured the school and had lunch. After lunch the day was concluded with two 20 minute interviews and a presentation about student life. Loved the interview and loved the program." More from this Member | Report Response

"GREAT school. I would go there in a heartbeat!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I had a really positive experience. It was much more organized than the 'other new program that I interviewed at.' It was a very relaxed atmosphere. We spent the better part of the day with the current students (having lunch, touring...) Despite the fact that the campus would not be ready until next year, I thought the day was really imfomative.
