What type of interview was it?

Closed file

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"Honestly, I had one student interviewer and one faculty interviewer, and neither really asked me questions. The student interviewer was really chill and cool and pretty much just asked me to ask him questions. The faculty interviewer was extremely nice and talked about research the whole time (he was a PhD on faculty, with no dental degree). They match you up with a faculty interviewer based on compatibility, and we did have a lot in common." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN interview feedback, surfed UTHSCSA's website, and went over possible questions with family." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"There were plenty of great things about UTHSCSA! The campus is very green and nice and in a very nice neighborhood of SA. The clinical aspect of the education starts in year one and is very comprehensive. I especially like the "general practice groups" you are in for your 3rd and 4th years. Also, they don't grade on a bell curve, and it seemed like a pretty laid back school. Also, the low tuition for out-of-staters is clutch." Report Response
