What impressed you positively?

"All the students I met seem to genuinely love the place. The two dental students who gave the tour were both from California and say they felt right at home in Cleveland. The facilities are top-notch, you get your own chair for the entire 4 years. Also the school goes out of its way to help you not fail. Unlike some bigger schools like NYU where you have to share chairs and could easily get dropped." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The cost $$$. It about 70,000 a year to attend after you include the living expenses, lab fees, and materials. Also, even though the weather was awesome when I attended, my interviewing professor said, it was an anomaly, they typically have two months of cloudy days. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had never been to Cleveland and I must say the city is pretty cool. It has everything I would need. Case I felt is a great school. You'll be impressed with their faculty, students, and lab. The interview is not too nerve racking. They really try to put you at ease. The admissions staff is super-friendly, not like some other staffs I've encountered. I suppose it has to due with the fact Ohio is a big farming states. People here have that country-folk attitude, which is good. You go through two interviews, one with a dental professor and the other with an admissions officer. My interview with the dental professor lasted 2 hours. Whe basically just talked about everything but dentistry. For example, "College football." The other interview was just a real quick overview of your stats. Relax, enjoy the experience, I know I did." Report Response
