"As an interviewer at Boston University School of Dental Medicine, I just wanted to clear up a few "facts" as presented by students in this forum: 1) No interviewer "accepts" a candidate-rather we make a recommendation to our Admissions Committee which makes decision--one student posted a response saying that s/he received a final decision within his interview--that does not happen. 2) The Dental School is, like any other large city school, subject to the environment around it. As with any city, we would recommend caution in moving about an urban campus at day or at night. But the School is not in a war zone or bad area. It is simply a very busy urban setting near a major interstate highway and consequently traffic and congestion can be difficult. 3) There is no issue with students being able to not graduate on time because of inadequate chair numbers. The School recently opened a new, state-of-the-art 22 chair clinic devoted entirely to the DMD program. 4) To the student who said we appear to be crammed into one building: that's an interesting observation since on your tour you were shown through at least 2 of the 9 buildings we occupy! 5) Our conversation during the interview phase is to assess an applicant's preparedness, both academically and otherwise, for the rigors of an intense, 4-year curriculum. It is not an interrogation and is meant to be as friendly and laid-back as possible. We certainly welcome feedback as to how to better this experience for applicants! You are also welcome and encouraged to ask us as many questions as you'd like! 6) Lunch--the eternal question--the student tour occurs in the morning and applicant interviews commence at 12 noon. Food generally arrives between 12-12:30 (depending on the caterer) and certainly everyone is invited to eat immediately though most prefer to wait until they've interviewed to present with nice shiny teeth! Great forum--wish this had been around when I applied to college! :-)" Report Response
