What are your general comments?

"I arrived at the dental school for 8:30. There was only two applicants including myself, and Dr. Weir gave an orientation in the dean's conference room. Then he gave us a tour of the LSU South Campus and brought us back for the chalk carving. We were given one piece of chalk, flimsy ruler, pencil, buffalo knife and a sheet with the measurements on how to carve the chalk. A digital clock was set at 1:00 and we had 35 min to carve (the measurements are on the LSU pre-dent website). We were allowed to cleanup in the bathroom then our interviews started. I waited an hour for the first applicant to finish the interview. My interview lasted about 30 minutes. I was free to go :) The whole interview was shortened due to the hurricane...usually there's a 1-on-1 interview where they ask 50 predetermined questions (again, on the pre-dent website) then the 3-on-1 afterward. Dr. Weir and two other admissions officers were my interviewers. They asked me all the 50 "personality questions" in the 3-on-1. Be prepared to also defend your weaknesses afterward like your DAT scores, gpa, dropped classes, etc. The interview was very relaxed. Just be yourself and honest. You will be prepared if you know those questions on the website." Report Response
