What impressed you positively?

"The interview committee does a wonderful job keeping the stress level low. The chalk was kind of stressful just because it is the first thing you do-if you mess up on it you have the chance in the one on one and three on one to grade yourself and explain what you did wrong; be prepared to defend yourself in the 3 on 1 with grades, W's, DAT scores.."

What impressed you negatively?

"Since the dental school in New Orleans still isnt open, we didnt get to do the tour and talk with students as previous years have done" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing-if you review your questions and chalk carving you will be prepared" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview process in Baton Rouge was really short compared to if it had been in New Orleans. It started at 9, Dr Weir came to get the 4 of us and we went to the chalk carving room. There he went over school info, the committee members interviewing us on the one on one and then about the chalk. Chalk carving lasted 35 min. You have a about a 5 min break and then the one on ones start. They are very relaxing and you end up talking more than doing the questions. Then for the 3 on 1, whoever got out of their 1 on 1 first gets to do the 3 on 1 first and so on. I was last but I only had to wait about an hour, so it was about 1 when I left the interview."
