What are your general comments?

"NYU is one of the top dental schools in the country and really wants its students to do well. My interviewer told me that there was some truth to the rumors about drop out rate, however those rumors were based 5-10 years ago, but now the rate is comparable to any dental school. It seems that NYU's integrated exams are helping students to score well on the board exams (>98% pass) and NYU is dedicated to technical excellence (rather than technical competence). Predoctoral students placed over 1000 implants last year and graduates are invisalign certified. I absolutely fell in love with this place and would go here in a heartbeat. " Report Response
