What are your general comments?

"Had to arrive by 9 at the Faculty Club. Dr. Davis first welcomed us and the man is FUNNY (such as the random slides of dental students partying and profs being surrounded by women mixed in with his presentation). Dr. McManus followed and he was definitely interesting to talk to. Then came the interviews as we were picked up one by one. The interview itself wasn't stressful at all as we talked about my interests, family background and NYC in general. Financial presentation followed by lunch. Then the tour of the facilities; unfortunately me and a couple other interviewees got separated from our guide after spending too much time walking around the clinics. Dr. Davis then came in and gave us his closing remarks and by 2pm we were dismissed." Report Response
