What are your general comments?

"THe schools awesome. Didnt really feel that the whole DDS = 2nd class student was dominant. Im sure there are people in both the dental and Medical school who dont feel for the other. It seemed like everyone had an easy interview experience, real layed back. I felt kind of grilled causing me to possibly dig my own grave, but what can you do? The school is awesome and is my definite #1 choice. Now its time to wait for the infamous good/bad letter." Report Response
