What impressed you positively?

"faculty seem really dedicated, the dean seems to be really passionate about the school. it seems like it would have a promising future." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"1. 100% PBL--i think PBL works, but making it a primary focus of a curriculum is a huge mistake. 2. the fact that they completely discourage specializing or anything other than general dentistry. this gives it a trade/tech school kind of vibe 3. the fact that you're being outsourced in your last 2 years. you're paying a lot of money to be some dentist's indentured servant to ''gain experience.'' essentially a distance learning kind of deal." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"that i would have to act like a tool and put on a show to impress the interviewers. i stayed true to myself, and i would not have changed my interview style. i understand that the school operates on a group learning style, and that's fine...but to have that during an interview really brings out the worst in people."
