"My first interview was with the director of admissions for the dental program. It was a very relaxed atmosphere. He started by answering whatever questions I had about the school, then told me the basic outline of the interview he was going to give me. The questions were expected and very straight-forward. The first interview lasted about 45 minutes. The second interviewer showed up late, but we still spent an hour talking. The second interview was very laid-back. It was mostly a conversation. He only asked one or two questions. Overall, they were good interviews. Not too stressful." Report Response
