"Interviewer was very negative and didn't even seem prepared for my interview. Left me feeling like the school didn't really care." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"They give you an envelope at the beginning of the day. Right below your name (on the sticker on the envelope) will be the name of your interviewer. I thought it was in the folder. It's on the envelope, not on the folder. Ask your student guide about your interviewer. Maybe they'll tell you that your interviewer hates dentistry and is really negative so you can be prepared for that if that happens to you." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Wish they had more 3rd and 4th year students for the brunch/tour. Makes me wonder about the happiness of the 3rd and 4th years. Wish they had organized things a little better. Was late to my interview because they were disorganized. My interviewer was not in his office and was busy -- made me feel like they didn't even care about me and wondered why they even bothered to invite me to interview. Interviewer was very negative and preoccupied. Thought the school was great but left with a little bit of a bad impression. Wasn't able to see clinic either except through a window -- what's with that?" Report Response
