What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"They ask you to be there at 8:45am and I thought it would start at 9:00 and arrived at 8:50am and they already had started (BE there at exactly the time they say) The reson I was 5min late was because the cab got lost - the signaling for the school is TERRIBLE. Even once IN the Buffalo campus it was very confusing - NO SIGNS WHATSOEVER. And people and cabs in Buffalo dont seem to have the slightest idea os where the dental school is located. Go WELL in advance - I left ONE HOUR before and, well, read above..." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Interview was done by a faculty member (guy) and a 4th year student (girl). She seemed to enjoy making me sweat and he seemed in a rush to finish, would bareley listen to answers to his questions...didnt like the interview OR them. Others had better experiences with other professor-student teams though, so maybe I just got a cranky pair." Report Response
