What are your general comments?

"My interview experience was horrific. NYU has a huge class size compared to the other dental schools. Because there is such a large number of candidates interviewed, the interview process was boring, uneventful, and unpleasant. You are first seated in the admissions office waiting area. Other schools have you sit in a room with other candidates so you can talk and enjoy breakfast which is nice because you end up seeing a lot of the familiar faces. I arrived a bit earlier and was immediately taken into the interview. My interviewer was terrible. 80% of the interview was him talking about how wonderful of a school NYU was and that all the rumors about it were untrue. He was very blunt to the point that I was offended, making an effort to point out a weakness in my application. I interviewed at 5 schools, got accepted into 4, and will be attending UCSF this fall. He made it seem like I should be honored that NYU would even consider me. As I went on my tour, students either repeatedly told me not to come to NYU or didn't bother to say hello at all. Everyone minds their own business. I attended a large public school for college so I am used to feeling like just a number and gpa, but for those who need/want more attention, I highly suggest you look into another school. The student I had lunch with seemed extremely happy to be at NYU. He confirmed that some of the rumors were true and others were blatently false. He told us that NYU definately has is negative aspects, but your experience as a dental student at NYU depends mostly on your attitude. NYU was definately not the school for me. " Report Response
