What are your general comments?

"i thought it was a waste of my time. there were 6 candidates, of which 4 had the opportunity to talk to the "important deans" and 2 of us talk to random professors who had very little influence in the dental school's adcom. It was a rather frustrating experience, especially after making extensive travel arrangements to the school for the day and then returning home for the night. The admission's staff was very nice overall and the student who lead the tour was incredibly informative. " Report Response
