How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN forums, interview feedbacks, website, talking to dentists who attended there, talking to dentists who had not attended there." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The school is first class. There is a high level of professionalism. A relaxed process, but you could tell that they were serious about what they do. They are very proud of their school, and they should be. Many of the tools used and the dental textbooks written came from faculty and former faculty. Very good balance between clinical training and an ahead of the curve research facility. This is definitely not a dentist factory. Also, they will help you if you are having academic problems. The Chapel Hill area is a great combination of small town charm and big city amenities." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Having to buy the school's pricey laptop, although I can understand the need for having everyone using the same software (no conflicts, etc.). Also, boards after the 1st year mean it'll be a rough first year. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing really. I prepared myself for any scenario (and slept little the night before!). Although it's not my plan right now, I didn't know that they had such success with matching into specialty programs." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was my very first interview date, so I was a little anxious to say the least (the stress level I picked above had more to do with me than the school). But all of the interviews were very relaxed and conversational. Total of three interviews: 1 with student (closed), 2 with faculty (open). No really probing questions, just trying to get a sense of who you are, and your personality. In fact, during my last interview, we mostly talked about books we were reading at the time. Oh yeah, if you don't already, learn to love basketball!" Report Response
