What impressed you negatively?

"The lack of housing, and the neighborhood -- as much as the tour guides tried to say that the area isn't really bad, it's obvious that it isn't very good either. Also, even though it's a state school, it's still fairly expensive, so some financial aid info would have been nice." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"There was actually some mixups, so I watched my interviewer lecture to dental students for an hour and a half before the interview. I had read here that the interviews at NJMS could involve ethical questions and the like, but mine didn't. It was a very relaxed conversation. My interviewer told her story, which was a little unique (switching from OB/GYN to pathology). Overall, very fun, and I learned a lot about the school." Report Response
