What impressed you positively?

"Admissions staff were incredibly friendly. In fact, everyone at the school was really friendly! The building is old but the clinic is nice. D.D.S. students get exposure to both orthodontics and implants, and no specialists are trained at the school so you get lots of procedures. The tour guide (James) was really happy with the school, and mentioned that basically anyone on staff will do whatever they can to help you in any way possible." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Interviews were fairly disorganized, I arrived 30 minutes early and wasn't seen until 15 minutes after my interview had started. Some students were given tours before their interview (which I would consider an advantage) and some weren't (me). The pre-clinical facilities and classrooms were nothing special, and pretty old." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Arrived at the school 30 minutes early, and talked to other students interviewing that day for about 45 minutes. ALL of them were from areas within driving distance of Creighton, but they were mostly nice. When there was noone else in the room Dr. Ayers' assistant Patti came to talk to me, which allieviated some of my nervousness. Interview was pretty straightforward, very conversational. Dr. Ayers' asked me the standard questions, but in a more conversational and specific form than I was expecting, and I didn't get to say a lot of things I wish I had, and simliarly I said a lot of things I wasn't expecting to talk about! The tour guide was pretty cool, just a regular guy. He was pretty happy about choosing Creighton, and answered all of my questions pretty honestly. Apparently the classes are pretty cooperative, not too much competition. There are gunners, but they still help everyone else :) Oh, Omaha is not what you expect it to be. It's a pretty cool town with a lot of culture, and the Old Market area is flat out great. The restaurant I ate at had the best steak and beer I've ever tasted, and everyone is disturbingly nice."
