What are your general comments?

"Pretty much standard interview...nothing to really stress about. There were about 12 other people at the interview (you could tell that everyone was really nervous). Started with a timed writing sample; no big deal, just quick paragraph answers. Then lunch with the dental students (talk to them!) followed by a tour of everything. Then a general powerpoint presentation on the school. The interview was conversational with 2 of the faculty members. No pressure here, just the standard questions. Great experience overall...very quick and painless. Big emphasis on the small size of their class (50) and their clinical prep. White coat ceremony is not until the beginning of the 3rd year however. They also said that out-of-staters should be proud since there's only 10-12 spots for out-of-state applicants and they don't interview / accept many. 11am - 3pm roughly." Report Response
