What impressed you positively?

"Dr. Pierpont is a rock star. Students begin learning endo techniques starting the second year and are required to do 6 endo procedures both third and fourth year. That's more than both SA and Baylor." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The dean (Dr. John Valenza) mentioned that Houston has six vacancies in the faculty. Vertical integration of class years in the clinic doesn't strike me as a great idea (if/when you're a fourth year student)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Should have worn flats / not heels. We had to take the stairs up and down four floors. I wish I had known that my faculty interviewer was not a native English speaker and that he would be reading off three pages of interview questions -__-" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I think the interview experience depends completely on your faculty interviewer. My interviewer was extremely "by the book" and not really casual at all. Other interviewees were asked just one question and had a really chill time." Report Response

Parking is not paid for; I ended up paying $10 just to park next to the school (unlike at SA and Baylor). Otherwise I think the admissions office was courteous and prompt when I contacted them via email and phone." Report Response
