"I played a year of baseball at my school and Dr. Ayers mentioned he had also played a year when he was at New Mexico, so he asked me about my difficult decision to quit baseball and focus on dentistry... probably not an interesting question for anyone else but it gave me an opportunity to show I am very committed to becoming a dentist."

"mock interviews from my school's health committe, SDN " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I showed up a half hour early and got right in, so I'd recommend that. Patti is extremely nice and talks to you to help calm your nerves. Dr. Ayers is also very nice and makes you feel very comfortable. He started off just making conversation about my trip and my home state before he asked the real questions, so this helped make things very comfortable. Overall very laid back and conversational."
