"I cant say without giving myself up." Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"I thought one of my interviewers was really out of line, and I am still debating whether or not to report that person to UCONN administration. This person asked me two questions which seemed to be designed for me to just flip my lid and were beyond appropriate questions one should be asked at an interview, and had nothing to do with my application. If anyone from UCONN dental school is reading this review, I want you to know that students who spend years studying deserve to be respected. You should also hope that I choose not to do anything about your illegal questions. " Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"The most difficult question beyond interview questions is whether or not I should try to get that individual fired for asking me innapropriate questions." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"There is nothing you can do to prepare for illegal questions at an interiew. If you are someone that received a lot of interviews, then you probably can get away with making a scene and a big deal of illegal questions. If you are someone who didnt get a lot of interviews, you have to decide if you want to ask the school for another interiew, or just roll with the punch." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"nothing" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I would never go to UCONN dental school based on how I was received at my interview. If you have the choice, interview at another school and dont waste your money." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I discovered that I have a high threshold for illegal interview questions and I was able to keep my cool. I discovered that DDS/DMD professors that get stuck making minimal pay in academics while their counterparts in private practice make lots of money, have a stick up their ass and will take out their frustration on people who come to interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I think I summarized my interview previously. I had two people interviewing me, one was just sitting there while the other one asked me questions. It seemed that one of them was attempting to make me flip out by asking me two illegal questions. Right now I am trying to decide whether to go after this person for these questions. I feel as if I wasted one thousand dollars by going out there for the interview. Im sure that UCONN staff reads these reviews. Learn to respect students, the money they spend to travel to your school, and the efforts they have made to attain high scores. Show them respect during your interview. " Report Response
