What are your general comments?

"The dental school really didn't impress me. Yeah, the class size is small and therefore, you get a lot of attention, but the facilities are VERY lacking. The interview was laid back, so that wasn't what negatively impressed me. Rather, it was the condition of the school that I was disappointed in and the program they offered. Plus I don't want to be paying money for dental school to sit in med school classes. I understand the need to learn about physiology, anatomy, etc. but there are dental schools elsewhere that incorporate med school material in a dental school context as well as offer exposure to real dental clinical settings. I guess McGill is good for some people, but it wasn't ranked high on my list after I went and saw the school for myself. Needless to say, I am attending dental school elsewhere." Report Response
