What impressed you positively?

"How welcoming and friendly everyone was. Also, the new building that should be completed around 2020-2021 (I interviewed in 2019). They will be replacing the dent sim lab with digital dentistry as well, which is becoming the standard in modern dentistry. I’m glad they are welcoming positive changes that will ultimately help students when they practice in the real world." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The two day interview process was unnecessary, one would have sufficed. Also, they put the financial aid PowerPoint online and did not touch on finance at all in person. Instead, a presentation was given on the cultural and clinical aspects of the school. I left with no concrete answer of how much tuition really was." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That there were 49 other people interviewing when I went to interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The tight knit family atmosphere between the students is a major pull factor of this school. Though I have to note that one student said, when I mentioned how close everyone seemed, that “we aren’t all that close”. I concluded that for the most part, everyone seems to get along well, but there are some students sprinkled in there who think different." Report Response
