What was the most interesting question?

""So it says here that both of your parents are deceased?" I made a mistake on my AADSAS application stating that both my parents were dead (they aren't...thought it was asking about my grandparents--stupid). Since my interview date was set on short notice (8 days), they had not yet received the correction form from AADSAS. I explained the situation and they didn't seem to think anything of it. " Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"They were all fairly straightforward." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Looked through a fairly comprehensive list of interview questions, visited the school and spoke with the director of admissions prior to even applying." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Despite the obvious competition in dental school, the students and faculty were both adamant that UCSD is a supportive program that values their students. Also I was guaranteed by both of the professors in my interview that the new school will be open by the fall of 2005 (even through they have yet to break ground). The facilities are supposed to be state of the art." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Obviously, the fact that the school is currently stuck in the basement stinks...but then again, that's why they are moving in 18 months. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing really comes to mind." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, it was a positive and informative experience. It was definitely a long stressful afternoon (4 hours to be exact). However, this was mostly due to the fact that I didn't have my interview until the very end of the day, so I got to worry about it all day." Report Response
