What are your general comments?

"UCLA School of Dentistry is in the very nice neighborhood. I love the surrounding college community and So Cal weather is awesome. The clinical facilities weren't as bad as other people described. I thought it was nice. The faculty member were all very approachable and easy to talk to. The main thing that got to me was the 2 page essay, but you don't need to sweat if you're a good writer. If not, don't worry. I suck at writing as you can tell by now but I got my acceptance email 3 days later. Good luck! " Report Response
