What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"How do you and your wife like Columbus?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"How has running your business helped you prepare for dentistry?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"None were difficult, but know your AADSAS app. because they may call you on your exposure to dentistry. For example, they asked me how long I had assisted for. I had assisted for about 8 mos. but not for 8 straight mos. so I had to take a moment to think. They were satisfied with the response." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Briefly went over my app/knew their website....but don't over-prepare on this one. They honestly just want to get to know a little more about you." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The interview setup. The setting was great to let the interviewee know that OSU is VERY interested in you. The clinics are great! They are slowly renovating things that need to be renovated. And for those of you that may have heard that the pre-clins are outdated...well they are old, but they're not outdated. I think some of the responses previous to mine will lead you to believe that the pre-clins are way out of date. It is a little gloomy down there, but what are you looking to get out of pre-clinic? If you're looking for a picnic or an esthetic playground, go somewhere else. But if you're just looking to learn what you need to know to become a good dentist, it looks good to me. I really liked OSU. The students seem happy and the faculty, especially the dean, were very inviting. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The tour of the school was somewhat unorganized...but the rest of the day was top notch! " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That my wife would have the stomach flu all day long! That the applicant tour of the school would be so long and that we (all of the applicants) would be touring together. Incidentally, we toured the college of dentistry for over an hour. I don't think anyone's hiding anything!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Very relaxed. I really didn't need to prepare much. From the get-go OSU asks you to relax so that they can get to know you. It really helps to calm any anxiety. My experience was great and the interviewers were kind and relaxed as well." Report Response
