What are your general comments?

"Look if you took the top 40 students at any dental school their board scores would be just as good or better than UConns. By having a small class size you're just eliminating the poor students that pull most dental school scores down. They have very poor clinical requirements that many dental schools are noticing. You must pass off a single procedure in each case. I would have never interviewed at this school had I known what it was like. I've talked with other schools since UConn's interview and they have been dissatisfied with how clinnically capable UConns students are. I will not attend this crappy school! I would rather apply next year! " Report Response
