"The school was so relax and chill, I didn't get the vibe that people were trying to be pretentious or overly snobby. I expected that i would not like the school or the people, but I was totally wrong." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"While I was impressed by facilities, faculty and students, I did get the impression that the school is not as well financed as some other private institutions (or public for that matter)- translation - its very expensive and theres not much scholarship. But its harvard, right! the students are heavily recruitted from this dental school, something I cant say for all the schools i visited. (no one did a GPR or AEGD , everyone went right into there specialty like 95%, the other 5% did public health or something academic." Report Response
