What are your general comments?

"The day begins at 8:30AM. You'll want to arrive earlier to get your interview schedule, name tag, and to have your picture taken for their reference. Dr. Javed, the chair of the admissions committee, will give a brief intro and then Jerone McDaniel will then go over Financial Aid Services. Then from 9AM to noon are interviews. At noon, prospective applicants, professors and current dental students have lunch. After awhile, the professors will leave and the current dental students will field questions from applicants until 1PM. At 1PM is the campus tour and then interviews continue from 2 to 3PM. Depending on the schedule you receive, you could be done with interviews before lunch. " Report Response
