What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are all new and up to date. Your entire D3 and D4 years are committed to clinicals. You get your own operatory chair during your third year of clinicals. During your D4, they send you off to another town for community outreach, so all the patients are left to the D1-D3 students, which is pretty cool." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"One of the doctors that interviewed our group left me with a really bad impression of the school's staff. He seemed like he had absolutely no interest in the interview and didn't want to be there (monotone and frowning the whole time). I'd hate to have him as one of my teachers. Don't know if it was part of his strategy to make the interview more "difficult," but it just came off as rude. The group interview is a joke. They split you up into groups of 6 interviewees and two interviewers. They asked like 4 questions, since that's all they have time for with 6 of us there. Didn't feel like they got to know me, nor cared to anyways. The rest of the staff were more than welcoming." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The group interview is split up into groups of six interviewees and two interviewers. You really do need to "shine" or know sports (went off tangent for like 3 minutes about baseball and football)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The students seem to like the curriculum, but we only got to speak to D1 students. They had just been introduced to PBL, so they had no real feedback to give. Wish I got a chance to speak to some upperclassmen, to get a better idea of the curriculum. They all just all talked about how awesome the school was...who know's...maybe it is all that awesome."
