"Pretty much knew everything from SDN.. One thing is arrive early because they will interview a lot in one day and they won't start the tours until everyone is done.. i was one of the first ones there and i interviewed third.. they interview you on the order you came in so if you come in last you will have to wait a good hour- hour and half before you interview.." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I liked the school. If you want to go into dental research, NYU dental is definitely the place to go. Although it may have lower admissions standards it does have a bigger and more prestigious name than most state schools. Students seemed to be very stressed from the coursework, which i think is typical of dental schools and only shows that its curriculum is challenging but rewarding. Another point is that we were told that only 10 dropped out of the class(09')of which is a very low attrition rate. Overall i had a great experience. I know a couple of the interviewees had a dentist who was not the nicest guy but the guy i had was so nice." Report Response
