Anyone interviewed at these schools yet? How was your experience there? I'm a bit worried about the group interview at Temple :oops:

BTW anyone take a Greybound bus to these schools? If so, which station did you get off that's closest to the school?

Thanks!
Jen

I will be going there in January. I am worried about the group interview as well, and don't really know what to expect! Where do you plan on staying? I don't know the city at all so I am trying to look into options.

I've been to Pitt from Greyhound many times. The bus station is in downtown Pittsburgh, but there are cabs waiting outside. If you decide to take a cab directly to Oakland, where the dental school is, it'll cost you around $15 or so (prices may have gone up since the last time I took a cab to Oakland, so you would want to bring more just in case).

As for Temple's group interview, it's nothing to worry about. After lunch, they will call out names and divide you up into your interview groups and you follow a dental student to where your interview will take place.
My interviewer basically read out a question, and kind of asked "so who wants to take this one first?" and we all go around saying our respective answers. It does suck to be the last to go when all the "good answers" have been said already, but it also gives you good info for your own. Good luck to you guys!

Alfie, let me know how Pitt is! I'll be interviewing there on the 28th!

yeah the group interview isn't that bad, esp. if you have a windbag in your group that is sucking all of the air out of the room. Sit in the middle of the group so that you never have to go first (i sat on the end :eek: ) and you will be fine :thumbup:
