"The faculty was very friendly. So was the admissions office." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I got a bad vibe from the school. I think I saw a total of 6 patients throughout the course of the entire day. The clinics were a ghost town. Students kept making excuses. "Oh, the clinics are normally busy...". They send you on externships and APEX because there's not enough patients at the school, in my opinion anyway. Students also said "you don't do much of endo, it's too tedious", and "you refer extractions down to oral surgery". I want to learn to be a dentist, not how to refer things out and not do procedures because they're too tedious! The facilities were also "meh", nothing too special. During some of the presentations, some of the faculty were yawning and had their head in their hands, and playing with their cell phone. Doesn't exactly send a professional message." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The school is far away from the T stops. It's a 20 minute walk from the nearest T. I think this contributes to their lack of patients." Report Response
