What was your response? Maybe the real meaning of his question was lost in translation? I cannot really make out what you're suggesting he said to you.

I hope you were able to explain that your undergrad education and good performance in the prereqs has prepaired you well for dental school. Basically - respond as if he asked you "how have you prepaired yourself for dental school?"

I did answer what you suggested. However, the logic of the interviewer was absurd, I was not happy and said no to the school at the moment to myself.

I dunno, sounds like a legit question, or from what I'm understanding it as. As in, have you spoken with dental students (in general) to get their perspective on the school or what their daily life is like?

At the risk of being perceived as incredibly arrogant, I wrote off two schools this cycle because of some incredibly inane questions that came my way.

I will venture a guess that what the OP meant to say was, "...how then will you know what it will be like in dental school..." line = like. Simple typo and poor grammar.

You are correct, I post it during my flight with anger. Anyways, the interview was not very pleasant.

To be honest, my goal is to be a dentist, not to consider my feelings to certain school, going to dental school it's just a process, however, during my interview, the committee emphasized on the importance of THEIR school instead of dental school in general, it is as I would say arrogant and unprofessional.

It's just my personal opinion :sleep:

Uh...why didn't you say answer that you know what it will be like from talking to dental students on tours and other dental professionals you have met along the way. It really doesn't seem like that big of a stumper.

I did answer that too. It's not that I am not satisfied with response in interview, I am just not happy with the way they interview. Well, I would not go now anyway. :)
