"The area seemed nice" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I was not impressed with what is offered at the school. They seem to think their sim-clinic is everything. I talked to students about the sim-clinic and found out about some issues. Yes they have 80 seats, but they are for all the students including hygiene; so that is 160+ students with limited hours of availability. Also, the patient care facility was EMPTY. The students that were there were discouraged about being able to meet their requirements. As far as classes go, students told us that they are having problems with the way the school handles issues with professors. The students feel the school is more interested in its research than about teaching dental students. I only found 1 student that said they would choose this school if they had to do it again."
