What impressed you positively?

"The dean's presentation about the school was really great. I learned so much about UCONN I didn't know previously and it was very helpful. The student chat went well also, they all seemed like best friends which was comforting to know." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I had two pretty terrible interviewers. One of them kept his head in his hands the whole time. He kept sighing and rubbing his face and head as if I was boring him. It felt like I was wasting his time. The interview was not very conversational at all, it almost felt like I had to pull the next thought out of them to keep the conversation going and it was very dry. The mere fact that they were even allowed to interview candidates is somewhat surprising considering how unprofessional they were." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Wish I had been more prepared for stand-offish interviewers." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Seems like a really great program. Love the way the curriculum is set up, especially as someone who is interested in OMFS (lines up well with the CBSE). I probably got a couple bad egg interviewers but it does leave a sour taste in your mouth regardless. I just hope those faculty members don't represent the majority of faculty at UCONN. I can't imagine they'd be great student mentors...." Report Response

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"Re-evaluate who your interviewers are. Not sure if my interviewers were just tired from a long day of talking to candidates but maybe break up the interview times so its easier on them and they aren't tired or bitter. Also, go back to in-person interviews, that way candidates can see the facilities." Report Response
