"Say you just started working at a dental office with a more senior doctor who owns the practice. One day he becomes very ill and you have to take care of his patients. How would you handle dealing with a patient who's case is unclear to you (i.e. you cannot see the problem that the other doctor wrote down in the patient's x-ray)?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"What has been your greatest disappointment in life (non academic)?" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Bought a new suit. Read some of the feedback on here. You really don't need to prepare much." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Facilities are brand new, and students clock a ton of clinic hours here." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The school isn't really a campus per se, just the two buildings with lecture halls, PBL rooms, a library, clinical spaces, and a cafeteria. It is rather isolated from the nearby towns of Bradenton and Sarasota." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Because of the emphasis on clinic hours the academic year is 48 weeks long. Also, year four is not in Bradenton but either in Erie, Pennsylvania or DeFuniak Springs, Florida. Both of these things I can absolutely live with but came as a surprise." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall I was impressed with the facilities, but not surprised. It's still a new school so I expected state of the art equipment. As far as the interview goes, there is no need to stress. It is very laid back and the fact that it's a closed file, group interview format makes it even less stressful." Report Response
