What impressed you positively?

"the dental school facilities were all very modern and nice, and the on campus area was very nice as well(stay where the CWRU signs are and you'll be safe). they seem to take a lot of pride in their history, had some interesting historic displays near the main entrance (a screwdriver-like hand tool that was apparently used as a highspeed, old rusty tongs that they used to use for a mouthprop, etc.) Also lots of old historic buildings throughout campus." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"some of the areas outside of the CWRU signs are not where i would feel comfortable after dark. also, some of their financial policies seemed a little strict, such as everyone having to buy their scrubs and equipment from the same place at the same time for the same price. speaking of price, tuition and all the other extra fees and supplies for classes and clinics are not cheap, being more than twice as much as my state school, but i guess i knew that going into it." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"nothing really important that i wish i had known beforehand." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was really nervous before the first interview, but all of the questions were pretty straightforward, they aren't there to try to get you. i calmed down a ton and just relaxed for the second interview and the rest of the day was great. overall a really nice experience. i think one interviewer is supposed to review your file with you and the other one trys to get to know you more personally. my second interviewer only asked 2 or 3 questions and then just answered any questions i had. the rest of the day you listen to a talk about financial aid and then tour/lunch with the students. takes about 4 hours total."
