"I was on the third day of interviews and was with just one other applicant. Mark Mitchell did a brief introduction of the school, then took us for a tour. I interviewed with a researcher at the school in her office. It was pretty casual. After the interview we were given the choice of observing in clinic or in oral surgery. A student was assigned to take me to lunch, then I attended a pedo lecture with him. The entire day was 9-2." Report Response
