    Hey guys.

    I received an interview on November 21 from Midwestern. I know that a ton of people have interviews there too. I was curious to know everyones travel plans. I got the email that Midwestern sends that gives a list of hotels. I am trying to figure out which one is the best value. As of now, I plan on flying into phoenix and getting a taxi to a hotel close to the school. I am trying to find a hotel that has a shuttle service to the school.

    What are you alls plan on travel arrangements?

    You'd be better off renting a car and finding a hotel somewhere off of I-17 and making the 10 minute drive in the morning.

    What is with everything thinking UCSF is the best dental school out there. Sure if you want to do research. But if you wanted to do PhD DDS you would go to school in Japan that is where the best double dr for oral cancer and research are coming from

    Going down to phoenix for 5 days. Renting a car, hanging out with some old buddies, staying in a hotel room the night before the interview, attend the interview, hang out with some buddies some more, and try to do a little studying inbetween all the fun.
