What impressed you negatively?

"Lack of diversity. Many students in the clinic were complaining. My student tour guide even mentioned that he was bit put back by the arrogance of the professors at UCSF." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I have to agree with a huge sentiment of interviewers this year about UCSF. I'm sure it's a great school for some, but it's definitely not for me. My student tour guide told us that UCSF dental students "see the best in each specialty perform their work." That's nice to see another doctor do the procedure, but when do those patients ever make it to the student's chair? The difference is that I learn by seeing AND doing." Report Response
