What are your general comments?

"From the moment I walked into the interview room I felt as if they were trying to belittle my accomplishments, force me to say "I don't know" and be unsure about what I know were good answers. This is an excellent school, but unlike some other excellent schools I have since interviewed at, I felt as if UFCD was doing me a favor by interviewing me, while other schools made me feel like part of their "dental family." They had very informative and open information sessions, although everyone was afraid to ask questions." Report Response
