"See patients early on" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Simulation labs are crowded, not very spacious, feel like I'm going to hit my classmate with my elbow. Clinics are not well lit, and they look old. Students couldnt answer our questions during the tour. Michigan is a big party/football school and I wouldnt be able to do well at dental school there and probably wouldnt end up specializing, they arent big on specializing.... all about producing dentists that do research. Send work to be made in commercial labs so not as much hands on experience as at other schools. They are toooo into themselves! No mission trips to other countries. Out of state is $70,000 a year and you can't get in-state NO MATTER WHAT! AND tuition is going up for next year." Report Response
