    Were any of you previous to your interview invite placed on "continuing review" by Buffalo? Just wondering...I was placed on continuing review a couple of months ago, and I heard that it means that they are considering you for interview invite.

    The interview experience was awesome. It consisted of a writing sample, Case scenerio discussion, and traditional interview. There's a tour of the facilities and lunch with faculty and students. Good Luck, the faculty is really nice and just wants to get to know your personality!!!

    Yeah. I got an invitation today. But same here. I am very worried about the case scenario interview which I did not do last year. Is it also one to one interview? Do we need to be prepared for it? (any themes? ethics?) If anyone knows, please share with us:)

    I have never received anything from them in the mail...they emailed me saying that my application was complete and ready to be reviewed on Oct. 6th and the first time I heard from them was yesterday when the interview invite came via email.

    The case scenerio is nothing to get nervous about. It is just there to basically make sure you are an ethical human. Think dental ethics and answer confidently!!

    The packed has a letter from the committee. It also has a map of the campus and a car parking permit. it also has a list of hotels where you can stay and ask hotels for discounts since you'll be visiting with the university. i stayed at ramadaa inn, they have discounts, and also a shuttle service to the school. as far as i can remember i think that's all there was in the packet. the letter also explained what to expect on the interview day, since the interview is a few parts. good luck with it.

    yes, it would be helpful for you to have a shuttle service. I stayed at Ramadaa Inn near the school the staff was very nice. they had shuttle service for free, but you have to call in advance to arrange it. i didn't use it for airport but i know people did who came for interviews. i used it for morning ride from hotel to school. it also had complimentary breakfast, which i suggest you take advantage of, because i think the school does not provide breakfast, only water. and you dont want your stomach rumbling during interviews.

    Hey dfordat!
    Thank you so much for the suggestion. Do you happen to have the phone number for Ramada Inn? Is it far from the University? And you said that they offered you a shuttle ride to the school, but how did you get back to the Inn, and then to the airport/bus station/etc? If you don't mind me asking that is.... =) Thanks a bunch.

    Hey, it seems a whole bunch of you guys will have an interview this Friday. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in sharing a cab back to the airport from the campus? If interested, send me an e-mail, I will check it tomorrow before my flight to buffalo. Good luck you all.

    No need to be prepared with themes or ethics.. The traditional interview is 2 on 1. Everyone is unbelievably nice and just wants to see what you can bring to the program so just be yourself and be confident, not cocky.
