What are your general comments?

"I had an idea going into the day but now I am quite certain that UB is a great dental school. The clinics are beautiful, modern and the best part is that you keep the same operatory for 2 years. I really like the research program and the possiblity of graduating with honors in research. The school also has a minors program where students can specialize in an area during their 4th year. The curriculum utilizes a DVD system that has lecture slides, presentations, textbooks, the works. But if you're not happy with reading something on the computer, printing is free for dental students in the medical/dental library (another fine aspect of the school). The cost of living in the Buffalo area is very reasonable and I like the area -- a mix of big city and suburbia. " Report Response
