"I thought the whole day was great, there are opportunities to interact with students, faculty and administration in a very friendly and relaxed manner. Though most of us didn't want to eat, a light breakfast was provided and lunch was provided as well (with current dental students and your fellow interviewees!). The interviewees also impressed me positively, I had great respect for all of my peers when we were applying and they were all worthwhile and fantastic candidates." Report Response
