How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read the interiew invitation materials, looked over website and viewbook. We were told that there was an essay component to the interview so that wasn't a surprise. They have a very good reason to do these impromptu essays. Besides it was a simple essay and they don't expect anything of scholarly quality out of you in 15 minutes." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The facilities were new and very good. I learned in detail about the school's emphasis on graduating good clinicians and that you will get more practice than pretty much any other dental school in the country. The current students were very positive, friendly and happy about the school." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I had heard that the neighborhood wasn't exactly the greatest before I got there, and well it was one thing to hear about it and another to actually see it (the school tries to project that as an advantage since you will get a lot of patients to work on and gain experience). I have decided the neighborhood will not negatively affect my consideration of the school and that if you follow a few simple rules you will be fine. They made a point to talk to you about those common sense rules in a Q and A session after the interview. The food was not very good and required a short walk to get to." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"If hadn't heard about the neighborhood, I would have wished I knew." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Extremely laid back. The entire morning was an information session and a comprehensive tour followed by lunch/informal conversation with a current student. The interview was a group interview with 5 interviewees to one interviewer. The interviewer made sure that each person was asked the same questions (see the list of questions below). So everyone had an equal opportunity, but you had to have good answers for her to spend a good amount of time listening to you. Most of the time she was very nice and gave us good advice."
