What impressed you positively?

"Every single student there had a smile on their face and was very happy to be there. I also really like the way they emphasize Dentistry as a part of medicine (no use in denying the link). The students are like a big family that I would love to be a part of. Also, the pass/non pass is pretty sweet." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Columbia University is amazing. If I had to design "my perfect dental school curriculum," it would closely resemble that of Columbia CDM. I love NYC and I would really like to spend the next four years of my life in New York. It's nice that Columbia isn't in the complete center, so you aren't completely distracted. I wish it was Dec. 1st already. " Report Response
