What impressed you positively?

"The new Dean, Mark Mitchell, a nice guy, although doesn't seem to know much about why you are not accepted when you meet or exceed all their qualifications (including residency) and can't tell your where you are on the wait list. Other interviewees were very nice." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Couldn't find any place to park, and then had to wait in the office for a long time filling out a POP questioneer. Interviewer had my file infront of him and admits to me he never looked at it. (DiDn't even know I was a hygienist.) Then he tells me it means something that I got one of the first interviews. (Meanwhile with my 4.0 GPA, average of 20 DAT score, and 5 years as a hygienist barely gets me on the waiting list in April after being passed up during 3 board meeting.) Seems like a crap shoot to me, and I am from OR." Report Response

"That I was going to spend a lot of the day with the four other students interviewing with me, versus really seeing the school and getting a grasp on what they had to offer." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, the other students seemed friendly and courteous. I was not too impressed that I paid 200 dollars to AADSAS and my interviewer couldn't be bother to look at my file and didn't have any really good questions to ask me." Report Response
