How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"You get your own operatory 3rd and 4th year. Seeing patients is a gradual process, so you're not thrown into someting you can't handle. It's a cheap place, easy to get in state tuition. The class size is small. The female dental students were really good looking (just an observation). You get good clinical experience in your last two years. The students are very laid back and helpful." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"You don't start seeing real patients until your 3rd and 4th year, so lot's of preclinical stuff your first two years. As we were getting the tour, one student told us not to be surprised if we see cockroaches. The lecture rooms were dimly lit and a student told us if you sit in the back you might get wet when it rains because of the holes in the ceiling (the tour guide was not happy with that remark!). The library was not impressive. They show you a very outdated video of the school." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"They decide if you're accepted after all 12 are done interviewing and you're touring the library. How's that for pressure? Ya....Oh yeah, don't lean in when looking at dead bodies, you'll get knocked out by the smell. Upstate New York people have accents, cool! Times Square is very far away." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"planes got delayed like crazy, so prepare for that. when i got to buffalo, it was smooth sailing. the best part of the trip was meeting the d students and the other kids getting interviewed. they were awesome. starts off with a video from 1985, then a 10 minute writing sample, then interviews, tour, lunch. great time!
