"The specialty facilities are nice, the rest are average." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The rude woman who was in charge. The lack of contact or intimacy with applicants. The failure to interview the applicants. The 1 hour session on how expensive the school is but the 0 minutes they spent interviewing you." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I really thought USC would seem like a prestigous dental school since its undergrad has a great reputation. But you walk in and learn that its one of the most expensive schools in the country but yet you don't have a single class. You teach yourself and other students in your PBL group teach you what they found in independent research. What psycho would pay that much money to do independent research is beyond me. This school needs to get off their high horse and start EDUCATING and CARING about their students." Report Response
