What impressed you positively?

"The facility was brand new, everything was sparking. The staff was very friendly and the faculty had a great deal of energy." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The school had no track record, they mentioned that they were so new that they did not complile a senior class schedule. They mentioned that they take a lot of input from the students about the shape of the curriculum, while I appreciate the faculty's openness to student input, I felt that it was a little excessive. I was also shocked to learn that UNLV is one of the more expensive dental schools, yet the admissions staff made several comments that made you question the financial stability of the school. Finally, too much attention was paid to the fact that they are "100% Paperless." It was like being told come here because our charts are a pretty color and we have a neat picture on our textbooks. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish that I had known how new the school is. I would also recommend that you try to arrange for a taxi ahead of time, otherwise you are in for a bit of a wait. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"All in all, the people were very friendly. There was a lot of energy here. However, the lack of a track record really is unnerving. The whole experience was errily reflected in the tour of the school, which was led by a first year student who kept getting us lost. You kept getting the impression that there was too much going on, and you would begin to wonder if they could be forgetting something important in all of the chaos. It should be noted that I think in a few years, once the bugs have been worked out, this could be a top-notch school, however, I would advise caution for the immediate future. " Report Response
