"Long story short: UConn is a great school, if you're from connecticut or rhode island. Huge hospital in the middle of nowhere, absolutely nothing to do around there, dental school facilities are not much to look at, clinics were dead when I saw them. I met quite a few students, none of which really impressed me. In particular, I felt like there was this kind of "I'm from Connecticut" thing going on with the students & some of the interviewees, and I felt extremely excluded. Also, a lot of the male students seemed very unfriendly, and not the sort of people i'd want to hang-out with. They reminded me of high school students. Board scores might be good, but don't think it translated into stellar overall class specialty match percentages. One thing that impressed me was the interview. It was very serious, and they were one of a handful of schools that actually asked me about my research. Also asked intelligent questions like "how come you didn't ask for a letter of rec. from this prof. you worked for?" Impressed me a bit. I like the small class size, but overall UConn is a thumbsdown for me. It's in the middle of nowhere, the hospital is very impersonal and the dental school isn't well defined, students are unimpressive, and I never saw one person in their clinic. If I went there, i think i would probably kill myself. I would rather not be a dentist at all than go there. " Report Response
