What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are beautiful and very modern. It's a huge school but every floor I saw looked great, if a bit repetitive. They have all their own specialties in house and lots of research opportunities as well. The plastified anatomy labs sound like a great feature. NYU also does a good job crafting its public image to attract patients. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The tuition is the crippling factor, most expensive dental school in the country and no big scholarships offered. Also, make sure you want to live in New York City for 4 years. It's twice the size of most dental schools and they add 100 international students 2nd year so that may be intimidating to some." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I found myself liking NYU a lot more than I expected. It's a top-notch school if you can get over the costs. I asked about the rumors of the students being very competitive and lots of students failing out of their first year. Students and faculty found that laughably untrue, only people who don't want to be there fail out. " Report Response
