What are your general comments?

"This was my first interview experience, and I was incredibly nervous beforehand but I can say now that there was really no reason to be. The interview was incredibly relaxed and casual. My interviewer took the time to study my application beforehand and asked me about really ineresting things from my application. I was happy to speak about things that really mean a lot to me--not all related to dentistry. The MMI's were a good exeperience, but some of the interviewers were quite intimidating, others really cool. Overall I liked my experience there but it snowed--in October!!" Report Response
