What impressed you positively?

"The campus and area is pretty much amazing, although its really hot in the summer but you get used to it relatively quickly. The dean seemed to be really down to earth and made you feel welcome on the campus and never once talked down to us or made us feel unwelcome. Sim lab rocked! Brand new everything and everything is huge, the sim lab holds like 125 students at a time." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Although my interviewer overall was pretty good, he seemed somewhat uninterested in what I was saying for responses, the dental student that was interviewing me seemed way more interested in what I was actually saying, so I dont know if that was bad for me or if he did that to everyone." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Overall, I enjoyed the interview and really liked the campus, location, students and the dean. The location somewhat lacked some culture unless you really like mexican food everyday but other then that it was a great school." Report Response
