What impressed you negatively?

"the staff/interviewers were rude, constantly questioning my motivation to be a dentist. i didnt feel like they cared about anything but the numbers. it was very unprofessional, the facilities were old, the technology is 30 years old, and the staff is to. What will happen when the current teaching faculty leave, there will be a lot of spots to fill with untenured doctors. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That all they are interested in is your G.P.A, experience means nothing. i have worked at the U of N dental college for a year doing clinical work, and they didnt really care about that at all, and another year i spent working in a hospital. i also had a reccomendation from several alumni, staff dentists, science profs, and even the DEAN of the dental school, but again accounted for nothing. i dont know that i would go there even if i do get accepted."
