What impressed you positively?

"Almost everything! First of all, everyone at Nova, students, staff, professors, all were very friendly. Several students not associated with the tour even sat down and talked to us for about 30 minutes. Current students really love it there, and they manage to have fun and learn dentistry all at the same time. Dr. Lippman was so nice! I knew from this forum that it was going to be a pleasant interview, but I never expected what actually happened. VERY conversational. Facilities were brand new, and spectacular; the pre-clinical lab blew away everywhere else I've been so far. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The only two downsides I could think of, and I tried real hard are: Mandatory attendance and Hurricanes (not the hockey team. Apparently not too huge of a problem as long as you're prepared) There's really no downsides to Nova if you can afford it." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How super easy-going the personal interview was going to be. Also, how ridiculously hot and humid it would be." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Got to the interview around 10:00 (45 minutes early) and chatted with some PA people interviewing while the other people interviewing for the dental program arrived. Had lunch with some D4s, then went on a tour of the school. Then it was on to personal interviews, which was a long time waiting if you weren't on of the first to go (They gave courtesy to people with travel plans)" Report Response
