What impressed you positively?

"The small class size, high board scores, good school to specialize. Also, the pass/fail system, no GPA...early clinical experiences as well. I was really impressed with the program." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The students were unenthusiastic and not really helpful when showing us around...but they were still nice, don't get me wrong. Perhaps, they should have picked a more motivated group of individuals. Also, the EMPTY clinics....i guess they said it was lunchtime. The somewhat isolated location of the health center, although students and faculty said they have no problem getting enough patients." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Out of state students can get re-classified as in-state after the first year!!! Awesome...." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall it was nice...Uconn is now one of my top choices. The small class size and "extremely demanding" curriculum will definately ensure a good dental education to anyone who is willing to go through it. The interview itself is not exactly stressful, but not a blow-off either. THe ask ALOT of questions...trust me, you'll be talking the WHOLE time, so be prepared for anything. " Report Response
