What impressed you positively?

"The faculty, especially the clinical, were very nice and willing to help the students anyway they could. All emphasized that they were training dentists and wanted the students to get the most of their time at NYU." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The facility is a bit older, but still is not that bad. It sounds like they are slowly updating it. I would rate it a 7 on a scale of 1-10. 10 being Marquette's facility and 1 being dirt." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"They are only taking about 230 students now instead of 265. The schedule is better than most students realize... and easier. They are 1/3 Problem based learning and 2/3 traditional. Relax if you worry about the 20% drop out rate unless you are a partier and plan on failing your classes." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was with Dr. Huberman. He is an retired dentist who interviews very few people. We just talked dentistry... more him than me. No real questions except if I had anymore questions for him. Very relaxed. I think they want to know if you are a nice individual or not and if you care about dentistry. Convince them of that and your in! They sent me an acceptance within one week." Report Response
