    Hi KMM!

    The interview day at UW is really short.
    It's from about 8 or 9 to 1230pm. The last part of the day is lunch with a couple of dental students.

    Your interview is the first event of the day (45 minutes) and then a short tour of the school, financial aid presentation, and then listen to one of the deans.

    Hi Dental-
    Thanks for the reply. When did you interview? Will you be attending UW next fall? I'm wondering how laid back the 45 minutes interview is? What kind of questions did they ask you? Any more info. would be great. Thanks!

    Hey K!

    I interviewed a couple months ago. My interview was very laid back. But I think it depends on who you get. I got a student and we just conversed like friends. Questions from my application was asked.
    However, I think I'll be attending school on the East coast instead. The city of Boston impressed me.

    I recently spent a day at the UW S of D. I found it to be a somewhat disappointing experience. I had a Pharmacology professor for my interview and he seemed to act like he was forced to be there and was hardly interested in anything but going back to sleep. The group who had another interviewer seemed much happier. The interview is about 40 minutes, followed by the standard financial chat and tour. It was definitely laid back with one on one interviews. The UW has an impeccable reputation and academic credentials. However, it is much different than a private school feel. They will not be interested in recruiting you, they simply don't have to. I found it to be a sterile, grey environment. I hope that others have a better experience at UW and I am sure many have. It was my 3rd interview in 3 days so I was pretty spent. I know several students who go there and are very happy.

    Hi Dental-

    Congrats on going to Tufts! I was wondering if you could share why you chose that school? I've been excepted to Boston U., but I really want to interview at Tufts to compare the two. Also, how long did it take to hear back from UW after your interview? Sorry for so many questions! Thank you!

    K,

    Tufts===is a great school in my opinion for many reasons:
    faculty, students, admission staff, facilities, interview day, the city
    I think it's a fun city to live in while attending dental school.
    Another reason: my future spouse will be attending Tufts. <img border="0" alt="[Lovey]" title="" src="graemlins/lovey.gif" />

    I heard back from UW less than a month after my interview.
