What are your general comments?

"Overall the interview experience was enjoyable. USC has a long-standing tradition as a great clinical school and it seems that they've not lost site of that tradition. The SIM labs were great, the students and faculty were very encouraging and the overall vibe from the university created a very warm environment. The PBL curriculum is not for everyone, but it does seem to be an innovative way to approach dentistry in terms of clinically oriented cases. It helps build confidence and creates dentists who, I believe, might be better suited for critically evaluating a case. In any case, it's a great school." Report Response
