What are your general comments?

"The interview process was great. From the pre-interview "warm up" with Robert Kasberg to the actual interview. It was with 2 faculty and 1 student. They asked a lot of questions about my application and my dedication to dentistry. It was very laid back and we just chatted about my application. They were all very nice and it made for a great experience. My cousin went to Indiana for dental school, so I knew a lot about PBL and how the school runs. They seemed happy that I knew about PBL so they didn't have to explain it to me. My cousin said there was never a shortage of patients, so that is a plus. He said that they clinically train you very well. I would be honored to be accepted at Indiana." Report Response
