What are your general comments?

"Overall it was a very positive experience. PBL is an interesting pedagogey and while it isn't for everyone, it does appear to make you more prepared for the real world. It was pretty interesting to go through an actual PBL case. I was hesitant at first, but left the interview with confidence that this form of teaching really works. Also, the students are eased into dental school and have a lot of free time the first year, which is nice." Report Response
