What are your general comments?

"Interviews first thing are infinitely better than at the end of a long day. There were two, separate one-on-one interviews. By the second one I had gotten all the nervousness out of my system and as a result I felt like I could really be myself and left feeling confident. The school has a brand new dental building opening Fall 09. There were two tours, one by Dr. Healy and one by a 4th year student. You get to shadow a student in the clinic for 45min. This was a great opportunity to ask questions of students, faculty, and patients. " Report Response
