What impressed you positively?

"Friendliness of student body. Every student gets their own chair. BOCA. Curriculum is intense but after speaking to the current students it isn't impossible." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"No sim lab but it shouldn't make a difference as students still come out more clinically prepared than other schools with sim labs. Facilities were a little bit older than others but no means of losing efficiency. And the worst was the tour, our tour guide practically sprinted through the whole school. We spent more time in the library than the dental school!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall I had a great time there, there's plenty of things to do in Buffalo, downtown, eat (WINGS!), sight seeing, and other outdoor activities. Although the tour was quick, I was still able to see students at work and they worked well with one another, helping each other out on some stations. Great school to attend even if you are out of state, you get residency in one year. " Report Response
