What are your general comments?

"The interview process is very low stress. The admissions director speaks to you first, and she is so nice. She puts you at ease in a second. You then go to meet your interviewer. You make small talk for a couple of minutes in their office then the questionnaire starts. After the questions, you talk about whatever for a couple of minutes. Finally, you meet a dental student to go on a tour, and you eat lunch with them and their friends." Report Response
