What impressed you positively?

"i was not impressed at all. but if i had to pick something, the facilities were new." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"everything. i felt like the place was a dentist factory. they made no attempt at making anything personal. the lady couldn't even sign acceptance letters. they sent me a photocopy of the letter i think. nothing about the interview day was professional in the least. the interviewer could tell i was overqualified for the school (no offense, sorry)and it was evident she didn't even bother to read over my application before interviewing me." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"that if you have even thought about specializing or deing research or academics, don't go to BU. if you want to finish school and go into general dentistry, go to BU. don't waste your time and money at other schools." Report Response

What are your general comments?

""i'm just trying to get a C in each class to pass so I can take over my dad's private practice"- tour guide... that was the sentiment running through everything that was presented to us. you pay loads of money to feel like you're on a dentistry conveyer belt, just try to pass and just get through school so you can go right into filling cavities non-stop for the rest of your life."
