"I knew a lot about the school prior to my interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The school is very nice and the education you receive is obviously top notch. Students are extremely close-knit and participate in lots of class events. There are two different interviews: one 10 minute discussion with the dean of admission about an ethical situation in dentistry and one 20 minute interview with a faculty member and 4th year student. Both interviews are extremely laid back and more like a conversation than anything." Report Response
