Any other information you want to share?

"Coming in to school, I was very impressed the first half of the year. After that the facade was over. During interviews, the administration straight up lies about how great they are with 'mental health awareness' and 'being there for their students' and putting the well-being of their students first. This is a complete JOKE. It's actually obvious, looking at our schedule, that they do everything in their power to make us miserable at all times. We have exams the Monday after every single break, the testing system is NOT conducive to learning (you take a test every 2 or three weeks with every single one of your classes on it), I can count on one hand the number of lecturers we have had that actually care (most read verbatim off of the slides). Attendance is mandatory; this is ridiculous. We are adults, paying YOU to teach us, and you make us sit through jokes of lectures when we could be actively studying them on our own. I know dental school is hard. I get it. And I know it's probably bad everywhere but the way this school is run is laughable. It could be a great program if the admins would stop obsessing over money, actually have some organizational skills, and communicate." Report Response
