What are your general comments?

"Overall it was a great experience. The morning was filled with presentations on the curriculm and cost. Mark knows everything about the school and is a great person to talk to. My interviewer was awesome, it really was more of a conversation-it didn't feel like an interview at all. Then you get to talk to dental students and one went to undergrad where I am now so that was cool." Report Response
