What impressed you positively?

"The facilities were awesome, truely one of the best schools out there. Clinical labs were amazing, great opportunities to do research (not required though) if interested. Even though there was 60 other applicants that day I didn't feel stressed or that I wasn't getting personal attention from the students or staff. Everyone there was so friendly and helpful, they really wanted us all to have a positive view of the school while we were there and all I heard were good things. All of the other people I met interviewing said UNC was their top pick, even the out of state applicants. They also pick really well rounded applicants with very diverse backgrounds, I was impressed by a lot of them. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The informal dinner the night before was very nice but I couldn't tell who was a student, who was interviewing, and if they were a student what year they were. I just wish it was slightly more organized. Just be up front and direct with people." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"They split everyone into 4 groups and we all had different interview schedules, some people had all of their interviews in the first 2 hours while some had them at the end of the day. Be prepared because you might have your first interview at 8 am with all three interviews back-to-back, thankfully that didn't happen with me. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Very good experience, they really try to make it as stress free as possible. Make sure you know about the state of dentistry in NC esp if you in state. They WILL ask you questions to see if you know what's going on in the state. Defn my top pick after the interview. " Report Response
