What are your general comments?

"My interview experience was much less stressful than I had anticipated. We had presentations in the morning by the dean and financial aid lady, followed by a tour of the school. After lunch were the interviews. Each person had 2 interviews one-on-one with an adcom member and then a short exit interview. In my interviews, basically all we did was chat and get to know one another. They just asked the standard questions- why to you want to be a dentist, ect. One of my interviewers told me that they look at the interview as just a chance to get to know the personality of the applicants. Everyone who got an interview is already qualified on paper, so they use the interview to see if you have the personality to make a good dentist" Report Response
