    Hey y'all I got an invite for an interview at the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry this month! I'm super excited and nervous at the same time. Has anyone been through this process? What can I expect? :)

    It was really laid back. The interviewers were really friendly and so were the students!

    One interview was open file and the other one was closed... The closed one had a lot more interview type questions - the other one was more like a discussion.

    Just relax! It was a LOT more laid back than I thought it was going to be. It was a really good experience! They give you lots of info about the school, etc.

    Good luck!

    Awesome thanks for the info! What kind of questions did they ask ya? Are there any questions you remember them asking? What about any dexterity activities or tests?

    Just basic interview questions. Nothing that was too out of the ordinary. Why UK/dentistry... What do your peers/professors think of you... And then they asked me to explain a procedure I observed while shadowing.

    Nothing about manual dexterity.
    Really it was a LOT better and more relaxed than anticipated.

    one of the questions that I have to answer is "What do you see as being the greatest challenge you will need to overcome as a dentist? How will you overcome this challenge? "
