What impressed you positively?

"The people and the schedule of events they had set up for us. Everyone there, including the faculty and administrators, were SO nice! The morning was actually really fun, my nerves were definitely calmer then, but I especially enjoyed watching the 4th year dental student, I think I got a rush when they sat us down in the clinics!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It wasn't a huge deal, but they couldn't open the door to the room where the virtual mouth was. I had seen it before, but it would have been neat to see it again." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I really can't think of anything! Maybe just more aware of the answer to the most difficult question they asked me?? :)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interview experience was in between "no change" and "positive." I had been told that the interview was very conversational, but sitting in there I wouldn't say it was easy by any means! The interviewer basically just went down a list of questions, each one being a pretty in depth question. It wasn't grueling, but just not as easy as I'd heard. Just being honest...don't worry if you know yourself and prepare for the interview on this website you'll do fine!" Report Response
