What impressed you positively?

"The faculty was stupendous. Maybe it was just the interview day I happened to be there, but there were students and faculty stopping by the interview room in droves to answer any and all questions and let us know how tough, but rewarding the program was. Also, all the other interviewees I was with were awesome people. One faculty member in particular (was not interviewing anyone) sat down to reminiss about his time at columbia and to let us know how great the student/faculty relations are." Report Response

"To be honest, the area the school was in was a little scary for me. Growing up in suberbia oregon, NYC/washington heights is a little much for me." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a whole day of interview/touring the school. I walked away feeling very preilidged to have gotten an interview there. They really made you feel welcome and wanted. They did, however, emphasize how acedemically chalenging the first two years are. They wanted to be very clear about what we would be getting into if we attended. The cirriculum is very medically based because of trends in dentistry. They want their students to have that well-grounded base in genetics and embryology so we have the capability to understand any new techniques or research that may come about." Report Response
