What impressed you positively?

"That the city had virtually no traffic, anywhere, period." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Too many things, but here we go. The dental students were continuously saying, ''don't come here?'' They had about five simulation chairs that were unused collecting dust. Otherwise everybody was practicing to be a dentist using 20 year old technology, consisting of generic ceramic models, and bunsen burners. A dental student overheard us talk about PBL and showed his utter disdain for the lame learning system. No lunch was served. The interviewees had to gather in a crowded makeshift office before the interview, while an arrogant Dr. Kasberg bragged about graduating from Yale, and reiterated how decrepit the school was."
