"New facilities and high tech. Students, although very stressed, seemed to enjoy their UNLV experience. I'm not a big fan of Las Vegas, though." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"VERY disorganized presentation and VERY unorthodox interview for me. We started about 15-20 minutes late and it seemed each person went over their allotted time. Consequently, our tour was rushed and I arrived to my interview 5 minutes late. When introduced to my interviewer, he began interviewing me outside and with a dental student standing right there! This led to some awkward questions and answers. Frankly, I was pissed that the student didn't excuse himself. We finally went into his office (with some prodding from me) but he left his door open. As faculty and students passed by and even walked into the office, my answers were frequently interrupted and I had to regroup and get back on track. I felt this was somewhat unprofessional. He was a very nice guy though and seemed to be genuinely interested in why I was interested in dentistry. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"UNLV has no summer break. Not a dealbreaker but the students all seemed excessively stressed. The school's disorganization made this seem unwarranted." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was wanting to be blown away and sold. Neither happened. Some of these "inadequacies" should be forgiven based on the fact that this is a newer school and their dean of clinical sciences recently passed away. We were also the last interview group so I think they were racing to add people last second. Very lukewarm experience for me." Report Response
