What impressed you positively?

"The facilities were better than all the other dental schools I've been to (2 of which were Ivy League). I also liked that there is one lab only for denture simulation (where you work on a mannequin) and another lab that is used for "wax-ups" and "carve-downs". Usually these two different labs are combined into one room but not at Tufts. Secondly, the interview is so amazing that other schools should mirror the interview at Tufts. They truly make you feel welcome and they thank you so many times for your interest in their dental school...none of the other dental schools even came close to this. During the interview you will get all of your answers and then some...they give you so much information that you will definitely know by the end of the day if you wish to go there. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The number of students vs. the number of seats avaliable (160 students for only 80 chairs). But they solved this problem well by spliting the class into two where one group learns Book material in a class setting while the other group steps into the lab to work the simulations." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing...very smooth interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"refer to positve impressions. If your one to get tired during a lecture drink coffee becuase they talk to you for awhile about the dental school towards the end of the day...can you believe someone was dozing off during this time while the Dean was speaking...this girl was nuts I tell ya!"
