What are your general comments?

"felt kind of bad that there was not a single recent feedback for this school for this cycle, so i decided to give this a go. interview day started with an essay. prompt was straightfoward so don't worry. this was followed by an introduction about the school and curriculum then financial aid. then i had my interview with dr. lafever. the first thing she told me was not to be nervous, b/c to have an interview at ucla is a really good thing and that i was in a really good position. that was good to hear. the whole thing was a totally chill and relaxed conversation, i wasn't even asked the usual questions. for the most part, she told me about the opportunities that were available and how the school would suit me, rather than what i could offer. after interview, we all went to get sized for scrubs and a white coat, which would totally suck if you didn't get in. but that was cool. afterwards, we went on the tour. facilities are pretty nice, not brand new or anything but good enough. there was this little student lounge that had a pool table and some other fun stuff in there...that was pretty random. we then had lunch with 4 dental students, one from each year, who were very frank and informative, so ask tons of questions here. and that pretty much wraps up the day. i think there's only two things that i did not like...paper records and the mandatory laptop. they even make you sign a piece of paper saying that you understand that you would be required to purchase their laptop. otherwise, ucla is legit. it's located right the main campus so you have access to all facilities, IM sports, and activities. definitely my top choice. good luck people."
