What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

What are your general comments?

"Like at UTSA, you arrive and sit in a conference room waiting for everyone to arrive. I was there 20 minutes early and I was still one of the last to arrive. They even started the interview a few minutes early b/c so many people had arrived. One of the dean's sat and asked us a bunch of questions in a sort of group interview. It was a little nerve racking but just remember everyone is nervous. The member of the staff come in afterwards to take you for your personal interview. The professor who interviewed me was very nice and welcoming. We involved talked about her office decor. After the personal interviews, a tour of the school was given and then lunch was served. After lunch, they gave some presentations about UT Houston and the financial aspects of going to dental school. Then there was a sort of closing and the day was over. During lunch, similar to UTSA, fellow dental students come in and talk to you about what dental school is like (w/o administrators nearby) and get a chance to ask some questions. This was fun and so many more students arrived at UT Houston than UTSA. I was accepted here and would have gone here over the other TX schools if my first choice (out-of-state school) and had not accepted me." Report Response
