"The interviewers reminded me that, "I wasn't in an interrogation...and that I should just relax because they just wanted to get to know me." The admissions office staff including Kathleen Craig, Dr. James Steiner, Molly, Ms. Brown and the woman at the desk were all very kind and helpful. The students were very nice...most offered me their email addresses and a few D-3/D-4 students asked if I wanted to follow them around the clinic. My interviewers, Dr. Toolson and Dr. Maebo we're very amiable and after the interview, Dr. maebo asked me to shadow him during his restorative clinic session, where he introduced me to lots of students and Doctors and walked me through lots of procedures that the students were doing."
