What was the most interesting question?

"Do you think you could handle the curriculum at UConn?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"No specific question was that difficult, it was more the good cop/bad cop routine from the two interviewers that could trip you up. One interviewer would ask the easy and fun questions like tell us about this sport you played. The other would ask questions like "So your Women in Science club, do you just knit all day?" He was only joking and being sarcastic really but his questions probed more and it sounded like he was waiting for you to contradict yourself or forget something you wrote in your app. After talking to others who interviewed, I think it's a tactic to see what happens when they try to ruffle your feathers a little bit. But if you're relaxed, it's more of a fun conversation and I actually really enjoyed my interview!" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Interview feedback here!" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everything! The students we had lunch with were so friendly, fun and intelligent. Dr. T was so encouraging and friendly. The school is beautiful and really geared to make you the best dentist you can be. I was really excited about the classes being shared with the med students the first two years. I also really liked that the dental class is small. The p/f system really allows everyone to work together and be their personal best." Report Response

"Nothing!" Report Response

"I loved this school and kept comparing every other school I interviewed at to this one. I was accepted (!!!) and can't wait to start in August! :D" Report Response
