What impressed you negatively?

"No formal tour. Morning introduction was a little informal (not bad but not as impressive as other schools). Schedule had time to sit in on a class but they had scheduled my interview for that time so I didn't get to see the class. Time observing in clinic seemed kind of a waste (isn't that why they required shadowing hours?)." Report Response

"There's a morning writing sample. Nothing stressful but writing samples are kind of annoying." Report Response

"Good school, good people, good city. Interview day could've been scheduled better but not a major issue. Facilities are a little old but not too bad. Clinic seems a little cramped though. They are thinking about building a new dental school (and raising tuition to compensate) but it wouldn't be completed until ~2014 at the earliest." Report Response
