What are your general comments?

"I like Columbia! SDOS more than makes up for the few blemishes it has with their great faculty and students. Dr.McManus and Dr.Davis are super nice and entertaining....but, perhaps they were just putting on a show to attract ppl. the students(generally) are very clever and focused, but didn't seem like robots. The presentation was short(930 to 2). They were quite proud of their school. Bottom line: if you want to concentrate on the science, instead of the clinical part, of dentistry...and don't mind the filth of the city, choose Columbia! I hope they accept me." Report Response
