What impressed you negatively?

"I drove around the area and found that the "ghetto" was between the school and the true downtown of Buffalo, but the school itself is practically in the suburbs (the North campus is definetly in the suburbs, and really nice too) Winters - but that means awesome sking too." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the school isn't really in the heart of the city, that we were going to have the interviews before the tour, that you have to have an off campus address to get in-state residency your 2nd year. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall the school impressed me, especially how much everyone seemd to enjoy being there with each other, which is a huge plus since this is going to be your life for four years. It really wasn't stressful at all, they just tell you how it is, and it seemed like the students were giving truthful answers and not blowing smoke. Some students passed up some more well known schools to attend Buffalo - I think that says a lot. The essay was simple - what quality do you possess that will make you an effective dentist?
