"expensive, new school so there are many changes, and patient population" More from this Member | Report Response

"Felt like a really long day. Lots of discussion about the program. They also had about 100 interviewees that day alone; For a school that promotes co-operation vs competition that is not the best way to handle things in my opinion." More from this Member | Report Response

"Cost of admission" More from this Member | Report Response

"Negatives about the interview, started at noon and left at 5 so it was a long day. Also would have appreciated some food since the day was so long. Negatives about the school, they haven't yet had a graduating class." More from this Member | Report Response

"No open clinics yet, since it's a new school, they are missing a few traditional types of courses such as anatomy lab with hands-on learning. They only have lecture rooms with very innovative learning techniques. I'm just a hands-on guy with gross anatomy and working with cadavers." More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"sdn prepared me pretty well" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, student doctor network made the interview great." More from this Member | Report Response

"That renting a car is way more convenient than using a taxi." More from this Member | Report Response

"No lunch." More from this Member | Report Response

"Read all of the feedback and plan accordingly." More from this Member | Report Response

"To relax. Roseman just wanted to put a face to the application. Although, it would have been nice to know it was 3 interviewers per interviewee. Also, bring a snack because they won't feed you." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was a group activity where you had to team up with a group then get to know each other. Finally you had to introduce a person in front of all of the interviewees and Dr. Harman. That was probably the most stressful part, considering the time constraints of getting to know your peers was around 8 minutes." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the interview was not formal at all and it was very comfortable!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"How laid-back and fun the interview was going to be. If you're an outgoing and sociable person who gets along with new people very easily, this will be a walk in the park. If you're an introvert, shy kind of person. I'd work on being more open to talking with strangers and just smiling and having a great time. They are evaluating your people skills so that when you become a future dentist , you will have no problem making patients feel comfortable." More from this Member | Report Response

"How easy the interview was going to be" More from this Member | Report Response

"The group interaction assignment that they have you do. Basically they have you quickly interview another applicant and then advocate for them" More from this Member | Report Response

"How relaxed it was going to be. Every one was super nice." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"solid school" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone there is very friendly" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great experiance, It is worth checking out if invited." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school, even better faculty, they really care about you ; life long colleague motto" More from this Member | Report Response

"Don't stress about answering everything right, they are more interested in seeing who you are as an individual and if you will fit in well with their program. There is a activity were you get into groups and have to introduce a member of your group, who they are, their qualities, and why you think they would be a good addition to the school. Be personable and make yourself stand out without coming off cocky." More from this Member | Report Response

"Absolutely loved the school and the facilities. The students and faculty believe in cooperating and working together to achieve the competency demanded of future dentists. Definitely now my top school I'd like to attend." More from this Member | Report Response

"Remember that there is a portion where you talk about each other in a group setting. Don't go over the 30 second time limit!!!!!! So many people did and I believe it was truly a negative reflection on the presenter. He adamantly said before the presentations that he would be timing and to not go over 30 seconds." More from this Member | Report Response

"Amazing school. Though new, I can already see it moving towards great heights in the future." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview experience was pretty low-stress, and the atmosphere at Roseman is very much the same." More from this Member | Report Response

"Be calm, and participate as much as possible throughout the entire day. The actual interview is only a small portion of their evaluation, so remember that. As Dr. Harman is presenting make sure you are participating authentically (don't just be the know it all who says all the answers constantly)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Awesome school!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I really liked the school! Aside from the general stress of being at an interview, was not a stressful time at all! Everyone was extremely friendly and welcoming." More from this Member | Report Response

"Good program. Roseman is a new university so there is still room for changes/improvement but I feel like Roseman university is a great dental school. They are very passionate about their program and the students seem happy with it." More from this Member | Report Response

"Amazing school with a very innovative curriculum. I think this is going to be one of the premier universities in the country very soon." More from this Member | Report Response

"I loved the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"This school is rather remarkable. It isn't even fully built yet, which (according to Dr. Harmon) will allow the students to have a great impact on how the school as a whole develops. Definitely not for everyone. The students we talked to expressed some frustration with the constantly changing schedule, but all seemed to think it was worth the hassle." More from this Member | Report Response

"I think there is a lot of potential for the school, but it is not for loner-types. A key aspect of the program is social interaction and ability to work with others, so just know that ahead of time." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really liked the school and the program they have developed." More from this Member | Report Response
