What impressed you positively?

"The entire visit was well planned and scheduled to the last detail. The tour was extensive, and they gave presentations in order to inform us about everything they could about their school and programs. I felt that they really cared that we were fully informed so that we could compare them to the other schools to which we are applying. They had unique interest in each individual's questions while we (11 interviewees) were there. Their facilities are top notch, their professors and assistants are accessible, the students seemed to really love the school." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I didn't have a good idea of what kinds of questions would be good to ask to gain more information about the school. However, while I was there, the Dean gave us a presentation on different things to ask and to look for while we were visiting the other dental schools we were applying to so that we could make the best decision. It was very informative." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interview was completely relaxed and was conducted by a fourth year dental student. He made me feel confortable immediately, and that gave me confidence.
