What impressed you positively?

"The congeniality of the dental school's faculty/staff/students- the Stony Brook "family".. The modernity of the clinic- completely computerized records, instruments at a central depository.. The enthusiasm and energy of the students who had lunch with us. Seems like a stimulating place to go to school." Report Response

"More like a chat than an interview. Extremely low stress. The school is so much like a family. I didn't get the supposed "surprise essay" so it may vary or may not be done anymore." Report Response
