What impressed you positively?

"the fact that they have paid actors (which is really unique to dental schools) come and sit as "patients" with varieties of personalities/fears so that students can learn to respond more professionally and effectively. interesting idea." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"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." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"that the interview wasn't worth it." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"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."
