What are your general comments?

"Creighton technically doesn't do interviews. They call them campus "visits". To get one just call the admissions office and they will schedule one for a friday afternoon. I showed up at 2:00 pm. Sat down with the dean of admissions 1 on 1 for about 15 minutes. He was very friendly. The visit was very conversational. He didn't make me feel stupid. He told me that with my stats I would be very competitive this cycle (gpa 3.66, DAT 20AA/22TS/20PAT). After the interview we were taken on a tour by a DS-4. He was a great guy. He took over 45 minutes showing us around. He wasn't trying to rush us through everything. He commented that he loved the school, especially all of the clinic time. He said some of the advising dentists in the clinic could be overly anal about certain things, but that it wasn't a big deal. Overall impression: great clinic (new, lots of room, lots of patients), friendly staff." Report Response
