What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"What kinds of things did you observe in the dental clinic you volunteered at? (I had over 200 hours of observation time so I had a lot to talk about regarding this)" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"Nothing really interesting was asked. I tutor at a high school in the Bronx and the interview began with the interviewer asking me about it and it turned out his daughter graduated from the high school I tutor at." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Nothing difficult was really asked. The interview was more like him and I generally conversing. It lasted a really long time (around 90 minutes) and it went by relatively smoothly. I just found out I was accepted today so I believe that the laid-back tone during the interview had a big part to play. I guess the most difficult question was "You mention a lot of reasons for wanting to pursue dentistry that can also be said about being a teacher, what specifically sets dentistry apart from that?"" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read over interview feedbacks, went to the school website, knew my information about the school really well, reviewed research I had done in the past (was asked about it in detail)." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Amy Knowles is a genuinely gracious person. She impressed me the most to be honest. I could not have felt more comfortable than I did during the tour. I was also impressed with many things the doctors we encountered during the course of the tour had to say. The Bluestone Research Lab and Rosenthal Aesthetic Clinic are outstanding facilities." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The cost of tuition is steep, but I have been attending graduate school at NYU and am used to everything so it really isn't that big of a deal anymore." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I was the first person to arrive and actually arrived at around 7:40 and was taken to be interviewed immediately. It was my understanding that the interviews began at 8:00 so I was caught in a rush it seemed." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was outstanding. I was expecting it to be dull and boring from what I had heard, but it was exactly the opposite. Amy Knowles is great and the tour was amazing. My interviewer was a professor of behavioral sciences and psychotherapy and it seemed at times that he was throwing things at me to see my reaction. I must have reacted favorably because I got in. Overall, it was a laid-back, comfortable time." Report Response
