What impressed you positively?

"Great people. Students seemed nice and enthusiastic. DentSim and Sim Labs were new, and you are hands-on (one form or another) beginning in your 1st week." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing. People always complain about Cleveland, but I thought it was fine - nothing too exotic, but cost of living is good and the school area is rich in academia." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing, except that it was crazy-hot in the admissions office, so I was sweating a ton - not really much I could do about it if I had known ahead, but it sucked anyways." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had a great time at Case. Both my interviewers were tough but fair, and I think I left each meeting having had a good opportunity to present myself to the admissions commitee. The school is really cool, each student gets their own operatory, and you get assigned someone to organize and book your patients, which is a huge help I am told." Report Response
