What are your general comments?

"Like everyone has said before me, "just be yourself." Don't go in trying to impress them with what you think they want to hear. Have a positive mindset going into the interview and be honest with the admissions committee and with yourself. Truly take a good look on why you want to pursue dentistry as a lifelong career and start practicing putting those thoughts into words and those words into actions (volunteering, community service, etc.). Get a good night's rest the day before and make sure you know what to wear ahead of time. Show the interviewers who you are as a person instead of just telling them. They know your stats and everything that's on your application, be prepared to show them the person beyond the application." Report Response
