What impressed you negatively?

"The facilities are old and outdated. Some of the work stations could use a serious renovation, or at least some new countertops that don't look like hand-me-down elementary school desk tops." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I didn't know there would be 5 other students there with me. Also, some students were confused about the picture the school requested us to bring. They want a regular picture of each student for their records, not an ID." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview is only as stressful as you make it. If you prepare yourself, know how to act, and anticipate certain interview questions, then you'll have nothing to worry about. The admissions staff and faculty are trying to impress prospective students. The dental students all seemed to be happy with school, good price and location, but not enthusiastically happy."
