What was the most difficult question?

"the most stupid thing is that there were only group interviews whixh were given the maximum weightage.....the problem to be discussed was non dental ie:plumbing.... it just did not make any sense to me that the fin aid group or the administrative staff were made to supervise the PBL session instead of the adcoms..... its like the person who is the dumbest and loudest gets in...... no weightage seems to be given to practical test...(atleast thats what the results people who had done the wrong exercise got in.....:( " Report Response | I was asked this question too

What impressed you positively?

"nothing.(except that it has a large patient pool).....during the 3 day interview i did not have a chance to meet up with any faculty meber/student.....nobody gace us a school tour or anything.....they invited 140 candidates for 32 seats...... and nobody on the ad coms even appeared in front of even a single candidate on the day of orientation......that was extremely unproffessional" Report Response
