    Hi everyone

    This is just to share my interview experience with Marquette univ.I was interviewed on 31-st. There were 6 members including me for 2 seats. All of them where Wisconsin residents and only one girl from Chicago,but moving to wisconsin in 2 months.

    We were asked to do Chalk carving,the instructions for carving were given in a sheet of paper,along with dimensions.It went on quite smoothly.None seemes to have problem with it.

    Then we had interview, 4 members interviewed us.The questions were as usual, tell me about yourself, strengths and weekness, why did u choose this school, what subject do u like the most in dentistry, your challenging situation in college........etc.

    It was not much tough,but they seem to concentrate on wisconsin residents.My hopes are getting reduced every day.If not said this week,i can go on with my other works.

    :confused:

    Hi Meggs and Ann03

    All 4 people together interviewed us.They already sent the fee details with the application form. So they didnt mention about it.

    The Univ is Big...It extends from 10 th to 25 th street in Downtown. The street was full of students. It seems to be a good univ. The people who attented interview with me were wisconsin residents. They said it is a good one.

    Dont worry about rejection letter Ann03 ,u wont get it soon,coz' they said me if they didnt select from this first 6 members they are going to call the next 6 for interview.

    Yesterday i called them to ask the results,they said they selected the 2 people,if they didnt accept then i may be called it seems.I think i have to get ready for next year.:(

    All the best Dhee. :) Thanks for sharing.

    What I don't get is why the school does not specify on their application that they give preference to wisconsin residents.. if they don't accept people from elsewhere, they should not 'accept' their application fee either!! I applied last october, I did not receive any intimation from them to say that I'm not being called for an interview. Ditto Nova. Very unprofessional.

    Don't worry. Marquette Dental University has a very good program for foreign. If you really that worry may you can called up the adminstrator --Brian or talk to Dr.List. She the one that designed the dental anatomy and carving test . She is the most understanding Professor in the school and have help many minorities and foreign dental students.

    Marquette has builded a new school and has upgraded its curriculum gearing toward research and academic. Also if you call to check your status---it will reflex your strong interest of the school...Worse you can apply again---do not give up.

    If you need any assistance you can email Doctor James at [email protected]
    and asked him more about the school. He is my friend and has graduated from the school of Marquette
