The admissions staff was very positive and friendly. I believe that I will get a top notch education at NYU." More from this Member | Report Response

"What impressed me the most was the research opportunity at the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Only the sim lab. Everything else, especially the "remodeled" clinical operatories seemed outdated, even though they were promoted as being state of the art. " More from this Member | Report Response

"how upbeat the students are, how pleasant the admission's staff was, how thankful they were we accepted invitation for the interview, great dental facilities, great schedule of classes, faculty has open door policy (can come by with study questions), financial aid officer very helpful with financing education, orientation student let us in a live lecture about periodental disease" More from this Member | Report Response

"All in all it is pretty technologically advanced. They have all the curriculum on a DVD, so it is totally computer based no books. They do have digital radiography, the use of hard and soft tissue lasers, CAD and CAM technology and they are the first in the country to have implemented plasimated specimens into their anatomy curiculum. However, I got the impression that most dental students do not get much exposure to using laser or digital radiography." More from this Member | Report Response

"The faculty, especially the clinical, were very nice and willing to help the students anyway they could. All emphasized that they were training dentists and wanted the students to get the most of their time at NYU." More from this Member | Report Response

"new aesthetic dentistry center" More from this Member | Report Response

More from this Member | Report Response

"Sim lab was new and beautiful! Amy Knowles is SO friendly. Leading us from place to place, she'd say "come with me, my friends! Follow me, m'dears!" The professor that interviewed me was a character (hilarious and very nice)! He kept on reminding me "I'm here to help you, so sit back and relax. Don't be nervous" and he kept on re-assuring me throughout the interview "I like you!" He was a great interviewer and I really enjoyed being interviewed him him. We also saw him at one of the clinics during our tour. He saw me in the crowd and made eye contact, gave me a wink and a thumbs up, and started waving at me. Our tour guide (Amy Knowles) greeted him when she saw him waving at us and our whole group waved back at him. His personality really left a very favorable impression on me.

"The friendliness of the admissions staff and everyone else at the dental school (except for my interviewer). At the end we got to sit with a 3rd year student who was very open and willing to answer our questions and just talk in general about life in dental school/at nyu. while we were sitting at the lunch table, some freshman dental students passed by and noticed us in our suits and actually stood around and talked with all of us for a while. the students seemed really happy with their decisions to come to nyu."

What impressed you negatively?

"The interviewer was focusing only on my application's bad spots, almost saying I'm not good enough , making me wonder why did they invited me in the first place. (?) Meanwhile other applicants said other interviewers were relaxed and nice. I felt I had to defend myself when answering every question. Never asked me anything personal or about my community work background, only about how did I manage to pass all my exams on 1st attempts." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview was too quick; Lots of waiting around; No formal presentations about what NYU Dental has to offer; No real effort to make us feel welcome and comfortable" More from this Member | Report Response

"Huge factory-sized classes" More from this Member | Report Response

"Some areas in the old building are very poorly lit." More from this Member | Report Response

"The size of the class" More from this Member | Report Response

"This is a plus and a negative: Financial aid presentation. It felt like they were trying to justify their high cost by pointing out how tuition itself wasn't high, and how it was the COL that drove its final price tag to astronomical heights. They even mentioned SDN as perpetrating some negative rumors. However, while I appreciated the information, it came across as tired and defensive. We were told NOT to ask for more money, and to not use our acceptance to other locations as a leveraging point. Also, the student tour guides raved for several minutes about their student store where they can buy plastic teeth. however, I've toured at other schools where this was possible, and it was mentioned as an addendum, so it made me wonder about the school. The student lounge was small, and couldn't have actually fit all 300 students." More from this Member | Report Response

"The lack of dedicated campus housing. There's an undergraduate upperclassman dormitory really close by, not to mention housing for MBA and law students." More from this Member | Report Response

"tourguides did not like the school, very big class size, limited interaction b/w students" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, really" More from this Member | Report Response

"Large class size, the price, and the price" More from this Member | Report Response

"The elevators were known to be slow and everyone, including the students, take the stairs up and down the building. It's not really a campus it's more like an office building." More from this Member | Report Response

"my INTERVIEWER. geez louise, this lady literally asked me if i cheated on the DAT and if I was lying about my extracurricular activities so i had to tell her "i don't know what you're trying to accuse me of, but it's very possible to do those things with hard work." ALSO, NYU admissions folks act as though NYU is the best school in the country, and talk about how "lucky" we are to have interviews, and how we are being graced by their presence yada yada and I just got sick of it. bottom line is, NYU has one of the highest tuition in the country, and their program has the MOST students of any DS by FAR. those combined are no bueno." More from this Member | Report Response

"students were really stressed out (d1 and d2), but hey that's dental school. not really much of a negative thing, but i suppose it had me a bit worried." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer mentioned some negative aspects of other schools, which I thought was unprofessional even if he was trying to be helpful. The tour was also super tedious and long." More from this Member | Report Response

"it's a very expensive place to live and a very expensive school" More from this Member | Report Response

"Students seemed annoyed with the interviewees. They don't have digital X-rays." More from this Member | Report Response

"Where to even begin......The halls were extremely crowded, the labs were crammed full of students with a panicked look on their face trying to complete their work, and my interviewer (I firmly believe) did not pay any attention to me or what I was saying. I did not have a good experience there and I wouldn't attend the school if it was the only place I got into. Not worth the price and lack of quality education I could receive at any of the other 5 schools I got into." More from this Member | Report Response

"Execpt for the grad clinics, the school seemed kind of dirty overall; the large number of students (a lot of people cut class, their new DVD system sounds useless)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that they add more students in the second year, which probably leads to more competition." More from this Member | Report Response

"They kick out as much as 20% of the entering students. A lot of students with $70,000 ~ $150,000 debt with no job were sent home. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Cost- but you can really tell that they put the money to use." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing actually" More from this Member | Report Response

"No financial aid session. Interview was so SHORT - I have no idea if that's a good or bad thing." More from this Member | Report Response

"top notch Technology, how friendly everyone is, close to home :), FOOD" More from this Member | Report Response

"Housing costs" More from this Member | Report Response

"HUGE class and very busy building, seemed like an easy place to get lost in (metaphorically and literally). Tuition and housing expenses are sky high. The vibe that it is most people's backup school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The number of students, half of the school are very relighous and you could feel that, the students were not very happy they were there because they have not get in anywhere else. I would have go if this was my last choice as well." More from this Member | Report Response

"This interviewer basically told me that I was a crap applicant (not in those exact words..but). He questioned everything in my application, he didn't have anything nice to say about my app, he basically said my DAT and grades were very bad." More from this Member | Report Response

"the supplemental application. the zoo-like atmosphere " More from this Member | Report Response

"the cost of living and tuition" More from this Member | Report Response

"The tuition is the crippling factor, most expensive dental school in the country and no big scholarships offered. Also, make sure you want to live in New York City for 4 years. It's twice the size of most dental schools and they add 100 international students 2nd year so that may be intimidating to some." More from this Member | Report Response

"A lot" More from this Member | Report Response

"The day seemed really disorganized--we sat for 1.5 hrs talking amongst other interviewees; the director of admissions was just a Q&A session; they were pulling students for lunch as we were walking on tour" More from this Member | Report Response

"HUGE!! Seems very easy to get lost in the mix there. Due to the large class size, 2 days a week you have class 8-1 and two days a week 2-7. Small point and not representative of the school but the day ended with lunch and the admissions people werent there and never gave a farewell speech or anything that I was used to hearing along the lines of" I wish you luck in making this big decision and thanks again for making the trip"" More from this Member | Report Response

"Class size and the cost!" More from this Member | Report Response

"tuition and living costs are very high...this was the only negative thing i could come up with...seriously..." More from this Member | Report Response

"cost!!!! tuiton and living expenses are insane!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Cost; Number of students and patients (though they handle the volume well)Many of the recently renovated facilities are reserved for clinical research or use by postdoctoral students pursuing specialty degrees; Other than that, no negatives. " More from this Member | Report Response

"A couple of students we ran into seemed stressed out...elevators seem to be perpetually busy, felt kinda tight space-wise (but hey, its in Manhattan, what do you expect?)" More from this Member | Report Response

"I actually wished the interviewer asked me more questions about me and my application. I felt like I wasted too much time preparing. Also, the place is noticeably cramped. Class size is a concern." More from this Member | Report Response

"tuition, so so expensive" More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing, really. i was sort of amazed at why this school gets so much of bashing on sdn. it is completely undeserved! " More from this Member | Report Response

"number of students!!!!! school is run too much like a business, like clock-work. they seem to handle the volume well though" More from this Member | Report Response

"the cost of tuition" More from this Member | Report Response

"Like most things in NYC, NYUCD is hurting for space. It is a bit cramped- be prepared. CLASS SIZES ARE LARGE. You can become a dentist at the school and never speak to the professor- anonymity is possible. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything is shared among the large body of students. " More from this Member | Report Response

"How large the class size is, program seemed disorganized" More from this Member | Report Response

"location of the school" More from this Member | Report Response

"Competition to get patients" More from this Member | Report Response

"Elevator.. too long waiting.. we used stairs most of the time. Large class size. Very small cafeteria." More from this Member | Report Response

"Class size. elevators (stopping at every floor for many floors gets pretty annoying)" More from this Member | Report Response

"COST (I KNEW IT ALREADY)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Extremely expensive. No real campus...just scattered buildings. Dental College was far from the rest of NYU" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really.!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"the price tag...the low part 2 board scores. the attrition rate, the class size." More from this Member | Report Response

"The cost and how they don't award scholarships until April when they already have our deposits." More from this Member | Report Response

"The rent is impossible to pay in the area, tuition is crazy and your part of this huge team of dentists so your easily shadowed by the other 300 students." More from this Member | Report Response

"Rude Receptionist" More from this Member | Report Response

"not much, maybe the sheer size of the place. Also a student whispered "don't come here." to us, but he was smiling when he said it so it seemed like a big joke...also the students who ate lunch with us were hand selected by the admissions lady, so I got the feeling that they were chosen because they had only positive things to say. I wish we would have got to speak with more students but they were taking tests that day." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. Size of class." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students, I had read the SDN stuff about the school before, so I was a little prepared. Still, I'm a girl from the midwest and when I walk through a room smiling and no one in the room smiles back or even makes eye-contact it's odd. I probably need to be toughened up a bit for NYC."

"Some students said they weren't that happy but this also true with other interviews I had, Large Tuition.. 1st and 2nd years were really nice and truthful, if there was a fault in the school they would tell you" More from this Member | Report Response

"Students seemed rushed and unavailable to talk to us. They didn't seem happy. I've heard that a lot of the students are cutthroat when it comes to competition. Everything is more expensive in NY, even McDonalds. Elevators are a pain, but now I'm just nitpicking." More from this Member | Report Response

"I have heard that theyhave a large volume of students" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing about the school stood out from the other places that I had interviewed. They avoided questions about the strength of the academic programs and focused more on the sheer number and size of the school, which when it comes down to the facts, it's not that impressive. My interviewer seemed to state that was a negative aspect of the program, while on the tour it was given a big selling point. NYU needs to work on their marketing campaign. It's seems shady when you hear contradictory info. from the admissions staff/faculty." More from this Member | Report Response

"The enormity of the building....going up and down all day in that building would probably get me fatiqued after a while but hey...I think it is well worth it...Oh tuition is off-da-hook ($75,000 per year) this is just the budget but damn...I guess one would hope to find someone who is a relative or friend to live for free or for 500 a month. Budget for cost of living is between 17K and 21K at approximately 1500 to 3000 dollars per month rent. Lot's of sacrifice. But don't let this be the deciding factor.

And of course that rumor that everyone hears about 20% of the class flunking out after the first year. " More from this Member | Report Response

If your not going to have a sufficient staff before Christmas dont schedule the interviews then.

"actually I discovered more things than what I had read from my sources. you really had to come to the school to really appreciate what they have to offer. the new dean there is doing an outstanding job in terms of making the school more relevent and competitive for the 21st century. much laudatory kudos for him and his staff."

"nice clinics and staff. But too crowded, over 300 students divided in groups for clinics." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview day sold me to NYU" More from this Member | Report Response

"The admissions staff should really put together some sort of presentation about the school admissions process/statistics/curriculum/what sets it apart from other schools/etc, and not have us sitting in a room for two hours waiting to be called for two different interviews. They should also consider doing interviews later in the interview day (after the tour) so we may have more questions for them during the Q&A session." More from this Member | Report Response

"Enjoy your interview time" More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a wonderful experience! I enjoyed the city and location of the school. The curriculum is strong and seems to prepare the students well but makes them work hard, but its dental school after all." More from this Member | Report Response

"So happy to be here now." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school in a great location (lots of patients; lots of things to do; safe neighborhood), but with a large class size, people can and do get lost in the shuffle. Expensive Cost of Living is a deterrent that they fully acknowledge. As for the interview: I just acted like myself, except a bit more gregarious. You need to think of reasons of "why NYU" and be able to clearly communicate that, as well as show that you have some original thought. Don't be a robot who only wants NYU for its name and location."

"i read through the interview feedback and read that most people had 10-15 minute interviews and they were extremely relaxed. i also read about a couple high-stress/mean interviewers, and didn't expect to get one of those. when i did, lemme just say, you need to go into attack mode. not defense mode. if an interviewer is rude and cuts you off when you speak, don't take that bs. be strong and be confident in yourself as an applicant and take their questions down one at a time. seriously, we as applicants are school shopping, the same way DS's are student shopping. so if your interviewer is mean, tell it straight and stand your ground."

I was not impressed overall and there were so many things that I disliked about the school. I interviewed at 6 schools and got into 5 of them and could say that compared to all the others this was by far the worst school/program (at least for me and accoprding to me experience). This is the only place I interviewed at where I did not get accepted to (I was wiatlisted here) and was not at all surprised with my lousy interview with the most disengaged interviewer I have ever had.

My interviewer was excessively friendly, and was able to provide me with much valuble information on the specialties offered at the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"NYU is the easiest school to get into but hardest to stay in. While talking to currently enrooled dental students, I got the impression that the faculty members are more interested in failing students than teaching dentistry. They also told me that the exams are so difficult that 50~70 students fail the science course exams. No matter how hard you study, they'll kick out as many as 50 students each year to make more room for AP students. Even a friend of mine who just started NYU told me NYU should be my back up school as shcool is known for dropping students. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview began first thing, and lasted nearly an hour. It was primarily a chance for the staff to prove I don't want to be a dentist and that NYU is too good for me (us). NYU should not be so arrogant and rude to thier applicants considering it seemed like most kids wanted to go to Columbia or some other school instead." More from this Member | Report Response

"Just really understand why you want to be a dentist and why you want NYU. " More from this Member | Report Response

"NYU is one of the top dental schools in the country and really wants its students to do well. My interviewer told me that there was some truth to the rumors about drop out rate, however those rumors were based 5-10 years ago, but now the rate is comparable to any dental school. It seems that NYU's integrated exams are helping students to score well on the board exams (>98% pass) and NYU is dedicated to technical excellence (rather than technical competence). Predoctoral students placed over 1000 implants last year and graduates are invisalign certified. I absolutely fell in love with this place and would go here in a heartbeat. " More from this Member | Report Response

"NYU is a great school despite the bad rumors on SDN. People should take everything they read here like a grain of salt and see it for themselves. I loved the school, the faculty, and what I was able to learn about the curriculum and stuff. I would go to NYU without a doubt if I get accepted! :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, it was a very personal interview. Everyone was really nice. I was genuinely more impressed than I thought I was going to be and have added NYU to the top of my schools choices. I have visited 3 so far and I think it has blown the rest of them away!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school in an amazing city. The students and Dr. Mejia really emphasized how untrue the rumors are. They have a very high board passing rate - i think 93% or only one or two people failed. The large class size wasn't a problem for students - they like the diversity of the class. Faculty to student ratio is 1:6, which is still pretty good. Simulation lab and clinics were cool. Overall a really good school!" More from this Member | Report Response

"the fact that they were so eager to dispel rumors made me feel like there was some element about them that is true, ironically. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I found myself liking NYU a lot more than I expected. It's a top-notch school if you can get over the costs. I asked about the rumors of the students being very competitive and lots of students failing out of their first year. Students and faculty found that laughably untrue, only people who don't want to be there fail out. " More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer was just mean. He's the mean old psychologist that thinks he knows everything about you ahead of time. He barely let me talk, and when I did get to say something he seemed completely uninterested and would just disregard it all.

"The interview was extremely laid back and conversational however I felt like the interviewer was indirectly talking me out of choosing NYU (after I told him where else I applied, he basically talked up those schools and proceeded to tell me how expensive NYU is). There are MANY rumors out there about NYU, all of which were truthfully debunked during the interview and tour. NYU does not kick people out, there are so many opportunities for tutoring and what not that people that do fail out must be trying to. I went into this interview thinking it would just be a practice for my top schools however I really liked the school and would definitely consider it if I ever got over the cost of living in NYC!"

"Be wary of prior posts on SDN alluding to high attrition rates, low board passing rates, "mean" faculty, and unhappy students. From the information I was given, and from talking to and observing the students, these are all myths. If you are considering NYU, make sure you get a chance to visit the school to see if it would be a good fit for you, b/c it certainly isn't for everybody. If you need your hand held, you may get lost in the crowd. But if you're motivated, they have extra clinical and social opportunities out there for you to pursue " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer asked me general questions like why NYUCD and why I got an interview so late( I filed my application really LATE). Overall, the interview was very relaxing and the interviewer was reeeeally nice. The facility is very modern and high tech! The location of the school is definitely a plus! People were extremely nice all around!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Really liked it - GET THERE EARLY.....it really pays, TRUST ME....arrive like 20 or even 40 min before. They do intervews by first-come so they looove that......GO EARLY!!!! The faculty seemed very nice (and Im talking about 3 diff people not just one fluke) and they were in the middle of class and smiling so it was not an act...some students seemed very stressed but other seemed very relaxed and happy. I guess it depends on which environment suits you...if you know how to get what you want youll like it - if you prefer having your hand held and be praised and petted on the head then dont come here and look for a school in the midwest (no pun) I LOVED IT!!" More from this Member | Report Response

My interview was only 10 minutes and at first it freaked me out after the interview is completed. My interview was the fastest out of all the 12 students were there. Everyone looked at me odd when I walked out because it was too fast. The staff and faculties really tried to make you feel very comfortable. Each faculty only interview one student, so it is all depend on who you going to get. I had a faculty and she was very easy. She asked me overall about only 4 questions, but the questions were really typical. No tricks at all. I learned that the interview length doesn't mean anything. I got accepted 3 days later.

"Quite an ordeal. I woke up at 5:30 AM to hop on a bus to get to the NJ transit. i took the transit to NY, and then took a cab to the School. i arrived at the school no earlier than 8:45 AM (my apt date was 8 am). But, this was my 3rd interview and i had called in ahead so i was quite relaxed...probably to relaxed. due to my tardiness, my interview was given to professor hittlemen. now friends...pay attention to that name. he is a psychologist who teaches patient behavior. he is super tough. i had barely gotten 2 hours of sleep the night before because i had just flown in from CA...and due to the 3 hour time difference i was wide awake...that plus waking up at 5:30 am is equvilent of waking up at 2:30 AM for me! so when i got into my interview...i was pretty fatigued. Worse yet, he also did not get a good nights rest and he kept yawning and fluttering his eyes during my interview. during one of his questions...he actually closed his eyes and started snoring. however, this was no deter in his pursuit in understanding me. he grilled me for 1 hour no less. i felt like he was psychoanalyzing every one of my answers, challenging them and forcing me to answer from a different angle. later, i figured/found out that he purposely put me in a stressful situation to see how i would react. i was accepted a day after so i guess i passed. if you get him, just stay true to your answers and all will be good.

"The interview was one on one - it was hard to get a read on the guy. I think I answered all the questions pretty well. Overall it seemed like a great school. The facilities are brand new and the students seemed to love it. We were ignored by many of the students and the faculty, but it was very busy. The presentation of the school by admissions and financial aid was wonderful. I think NYU is a top notch program and obviously NYC is wonderful. Very expensive but living in NYC for 4 years is an experience that no other dental school can compete with. " More from this Member | Report Response

"my experience at NYU was awesome. Honestly, i added this school after originally submitting my AADSAS and I am glad I did. I stayed at a hotel called Hotel 17 which i recommend. It was very close to the school (about a 5 minute cab ride). It's not like it was very luxurious or anything, but i paid 100 bucks and had a decent room (although the bathroom was shared and in the hallway). It was just a convenient hotel to stay at. I had breakfast at a little cafe right across the street and then arrived at the school early. We began interviewing right away. the interview was extremely conversational and not stressful at all! there were some questions, but while i was answering, the lady who interviewed me would say stuff as well, so it was very conversational and i just felt like she was trying to get to know me. then after the interview, we had a very helpful question and answer session with a 4th year student who is the president of the class. he was very down to earth and I could tell he was honest and wasn't just trying to sell the school to us. then we went on a tour of the school, which was great. we then had a financial aid session and the lady presenting was also very honest as well. finally, we were fed lunch. I suggest eating a large breakfast or bringing a light snack to eat in between your interview and lunch time because i had breakfast at 630 and we didn't have lunch till about 1230. But, they fed us very well for lunch. We were able to go to the cafeteria and eat whatever we wanted. The lunch concluded the day and I took the subway back to the airport. Overall, i left with a very positive impression of the school and I am happy that i added NYU to my application list! " More from this Member | Report Response

"I have mixed feelings about it, the guy was really nice and seemed very interested in my file and what I had to say, but it was only about 10-15 minutes and 3 or 4 questions long. I felt like we had just started and he said "well, do you have any questions?" I felt like I had better ask lots of questions so he can at least have 30 minutes of interaction with me, otherwise I would have felt that he didn't really get to know me. I don't know if the short interview time was a good sign or a bad sign. I asked the other interveiwees and they said they were asked many questions...but they were interviewed by different people" More from this Member | Report Response

"Honestly, I had applied to NYU as a backup. I knew that I would have a good chance of getting in. The interview realy changed my views. NYU is an amazing school. The fact that they have a high attrition rate is a math and the state-of the art facilities make the tuition worth it. You can see how much funding the school receives and there are so many opportunities available to the students. All one needs to do is be active. Due to the large class size, they won't hold your hand. The class president was very nice and helpful. Cute, too. :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great experience. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I was interviewed by Dr. Palatta. He was VERY nice. He seemed like he wanted to get to know me and cared about what I had to say.

"I was really impressed by NYU. Before I went on the interview NYU was not one of my top choice schools, but it has since gone up my list. What impressed me the most was the technology that is available to the students and the open door policy that the professors have. However, I really didn't like how big the dental class is. They admit 225 students the first year and add 125 foreign students the second year for a total of 350 students." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview was easy and very pleasant. Felt like talking to my best friend. The facility was ...hot and sexy... don't know how else to put it. The waiting area of a particular clinic looked like a hotel lobby. Every pieces of the 11 floors building were new and amazing. All rumors of NYU aren't true. Very multicultural (heard 5 diff. languages in 4 hours) Of course, big student body. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a very positive experience. I had heard very good things about NYU and they all proved to be true. The interviewer was very sincere and had read my file beforehand. He asked me really only two questions: what do I do now and what do I really know about dentistry. The rest of the time was very conversational, we talked about how a dental degree is not really necessarily the ticket to easy street (which I of course knew). He asked me what questions I had and I asked about the school's culture/competitiveness and what NYU did to help students find jobs after graduation. He said since most go on to do GPRs it's not really as much of an issue for NYU. I really liked NYU and how its size gives you the opportunity to pursue any of your particular interests, be they research, outreach, specialties, etc. I love the diversity and exposure to international students. I think their clinical program is very strong. Anything you want to do while at school, you can do it. For me, the only downside is the extremely high cost of living. Who has $2500 a month to pay just for rent as a grad student??" More from this Member | Report Response

"I liked the school. If you want to go into dental research, NYU dental is definitely the place to go. Although it may have lower admissions standards it does have a bigger and more prestigious name than most state schools. Students seemed to be very stressed from the coursework, which i think is typical of dental schools and only shows that its curriculum is challenging but rewarding. Another point is that we were told that only 10 dropped out of the class(09')of which is a very low attrition rate. Overall i had a great experience. I know a couple of the interviewees had a dentist who was not the nicest guy but the guy i had was so nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was actually very pleasant. Pretty laid back. My interviewer spent a lot of time just looking over my application (seems like he never saw it before), he went down my entire transcript grade by grade, but didn't ask any questions (he said I did well). Then he read each of the letters of recommendations as well as my personal statement. So it was strange having to sit and watch him basically judge me off of what was in my application rather than talk to me the whole time. Nonetheless, after all that, we did talk and it was fun. He answered many of my questions and egged me on to ask more." More from this Member | Report Response

"people in the admissions office were realy nice and friendly, but the whole process was itself poorly organized. there is no conference room designated for the interviewees so the applicants have to sit in the waiting area before they get interviewed which kind of makes u feel a little nervous. the financial aid advisor, was helpful but very general, and just rushed through the presentation. my interviewer seemed to have carefully reviewd my application, as i understood from the questions she asked. the best impression was the interview itself, the rest was ok. i feel that it is quite possible to have an enjoyable experience at NYU dental school and get decent clinical knowledge, it all depends on your persoanlity, study habits, and need for attention from the faculty. the class size is a big minus to their program but they make it work.

"My interview experience was horrific. NYU has a huge class size compared to the other dental schools. Because there is such a large number of candidates interviewed, the interview process was boring, uneventful, and unpleasant. You are first seated in the admissions office waiting area. Other schools have you sit in a room with other candidates so you can talk and enjoy breakfast which is nice because you end up seeing a lot of the familiar faces. I arrived a bit earlier and was immediately taken into the interview. My interviewer was terrible. 80% of the interview was him talking about how wonderful of a school NYU was and that all the rumors about it were untrue. He was very blunt to the point that I was offended, making an effort to point out a weakness in my application. I interviewed at 5 schools, got accepted into 4, and will be attending UCSF this fall. He made it seem like I should be honored that NYU would even consider me. As I went on my tour, students either repeatedly told me not to come to NYU or didn't bother to say hello at all. Everyone minds their own business. I attended a large public school for college so I am used to feeling like just a number and gpa, but for those who need/want more attention, I highly suggest you look into another school. The student I had lunch with seemed extremely happy to be at NYU. He confirmed that some of the rumors were true and others were blatently false. He told us that NYU definately has is negative aspects, but your experience as a dental student at NYU depends mostly on your attitude. NYU was definately not the school for me. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was the easiest interview I had by far. We just talked and the interviewer kept saying really nice things to me. The whole time I was thinking is this actually my interview. No tricky questions.

"The interviewer was very easy going. The interview felt like a conversation between friends" More from this Member | Report Response

"Out of all my interviews, this was the worst school. The interview was more about antagonizing you instead of trying to get to know you. The interviewer skimmed over my application and made incorrect assumptions. When I stated that he was wrong about my previous dental experiences, he came back with saying that what I had done was still not "real" enough to understanding the dental profession. Overall the school was unimpressive. I tried to separte my negativee interviewer from the rest of what the school had to offer. But throughout the day, it became apparent that NYU is not as great as it promotes itself to be. When asking questions of the "drop rate" rumors, the admissions staff stated that they were unsure of the exact numbers but that they would find out and get back to us. How hard is it to remember how many people didn't make it into the 2nd year? Especially when they claim to care about all of their students, as if they were their own children. Overall, everything seemed shadier and shadier as the day progressed. " More from this Member | Report Response

It is either I was fortunate to have a wonderful interviewer or I was just on point that day because things went very well." More from this Member | Report Response

"What I have learned from the many interviews I have been on, is don't take to seriously what other students say. Make opinions for yourself. My good friend said she disliked aspects of NYU, however, she was probably not meant for the big city/school. Likewise, when I visited Creighton, NE I was almost suffocated by the "averageness" of the town. Everyone affect was mundane and unoriginal. Personally, I like a bit of color and life. Bottom-line, this site will not give you the answers, it may only hint at what to look for. Make decisions for yourself, don't be spoon fed." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was some reverse psychology stuff I dont even know how to explain like I was thinking the interview was going great until he started advising me on taking graduate courses and retaking the DATs and applying to more schools and that's what he had to do to get into dental school.

Secondly the fact that there failure rate is so high, and percentage wise it is higher than other schools, so dont buy into there whole argument of, "oh we have more students, therefore we fail more..." their failure rate is 10%. which is higher than other schools. Thirdly, the foreign students do so well in second year, that there is no bell curve, so other students suffer. " More from this Member | Report Response

The facilities overall are nice, especially the Sim Lab. The ones that are not are being renovated soon. Those who are worried about the 20% drop rate should realize something-dental school takes a lot of work and individual study. You must be motivated and study on your own at NYU, which is very similar to USC's program (which is a highly respected one). To be honest, I'm going to NYU for the location, because I would hate to live at most of the other schools I've been accepted for 4 years (ASDOH, Temple, Pittsburgh, Case Western, UW, USC).

After lunch, I talked to several students and they said the way they survive is relying on transcripts not vital books??? I also learned that faculty members try to fail a lot of students and make them retake the courses so that students don't have enough time to study for the board exams during summer. I had a very positive impression during the informative interview but then I heard too many negative things about school while talking to students.

Dr Weisselberg ask me if i want to interview now and i said "Yeah" and he grabbed my file and off we went. 15 min in to the interview we get up and head to a faculty area were we have some donuts and coffee then back to the interview room we go. The whole interview was more like two friends hanging out talking about random stuff. Finally about 25 min in he looks at my DAT score and says that he does not like my PAT and Math section scores they seem a little low but if i can answer two questions he will over look them. Thats when he asked the questions i just posted in the "interesting question" section. After i answered he said good answer and told me he would be right back. 5 min later he comes back in and tells me that he really wants me at NYU and to expect "something very good in the mail form NYU in two weeks".

They are both in the same building but the floor it was on was AMAZING. I can't believe how people had donated $ to have this done. The dentist of the Stars, i.e. julia roberts, etc... had donated a bunch of $$$ for the Aesthetics department. I was really impressed that it had 6 flat plasma screen TV's and a room where they would operate and people in another room with a glass wall can see... Their equipement at NYU is all at the top-end, top-notch tools!!!... I don't know what else to say, but first I though NYC, wow how scary is that??? am i gonna die from walking to my apt.. NO! I found out they got cops on every corner, and the new mayor on NY has really put alot of $ and work to make the city better than ever. University of Michigan, University of Detroit, University of Texas Health Sci Center's facilties can't even compare to NYU's!!! I must have gotten lucky, but the person that interviewed my was REALLY laid back, he hardly asked me any of the "typical" interview questions, it was more like he was telling me why to go to NYU and how cool the city was...

"you can't compare NYU to any CA schools. to utter the NYU and UoP in the same sentence as someone else did in a previous posting is ludicrous. NYU is considered IVY league, and UoP is well...UoP. NYU is a hell of alot nicer than say PENN. I just worry about the enormous class sizes there though. But I was told by an upperclassman that 98% will pass. Those that usually struggle are married students with kids. Which makes sense in terms of committment and care for children in general. My general impressions of NYU are positive. NYU is my first and only choice. Seeing is believing though and I encourage those with NYU interviews to go physically there to see it and not do a regional interview if it is offered. September is the earliest they offer interviews and they're held mondays and fridays only so plan ahead!! Good luck and hope to see some of you at NYU. " More from this Member | Report Response

"i see you founded this organization at your school, a monument would have lasted longer"... implying i solely did it to boost my application/ego (i was actually a bit hurt by this since this was an organization my friend and i started together to help disabled adults which took a lot of time and a lot of effort). he was very sarcastic and rude at times. he asked my age several times and said i'm too young to know what i want to do for the rest of my life, etc. he was relentless with the questions and sometimes didn't even let me finish my answer to the question before he was interrupting me with his two cents and another question, or throwing my answer back at me and questioning that. at the end the he again reverted back to the sweet old man, and said he hopes to see me next year. very odd."

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"to make sure before hand that the room they're gonna use to take the test is in the same building instead of having us going back and forth from one building to another" More from this Member | Report Response

"Add an informational presentation about the school to the interview day, and please do the interviews after the presentation and tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"Offer a better platform for students to find roommates with other incoming dental students." More from this Member | Report Response

"This is weird -- but I would say to change the lighting fixtures. I was really excited about NYU, but I interviewed on a cloudy day and everything looked dim and dark. In retrospect it seemed to really affect my perspective, especially after the financial aid talk. Also, I wanted feedback on how alumni liked NYU -- basically, more information about "why NYU" and how well NYU prepared them." More from this Member | Report Response

"interview, then dean of admissions speech, then lunch, then tour" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. Very friendly and informative staff." More from this Member | Report Response

"Please provide better directions to the admission's office. Allow more time with the student tour guide. It might make sense to break the tour into two groups, and have two guides. Give name tags to the students." More from this Member | Report Response
