"Everyone was really friendly-staff, secretaries, admissions counselor. Talked with professors and students over lunch, along with hearing the "reality" from students when we observed them working in the clinic. Also, talking with the oral surgeons was a bonus." Report Response

"Nothing really..." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing, I was pretty well informed before the interview. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, it was positive. The interviewer was an older professor that makes you think of one's grandfather. The interview was relatively laid back...not as formal as I'd anticipated. At times, he'd say "I see you've done alot of research..." and then he'd pause and not say something like, "So tell me about that" or "What did you do" so I just would start talking about it even though he didn't necessarily ask...I assumed that was what he wanted with the pauses???"
