I have yet to see people post in the specific thread for VCU that they received an invite where are you seeing this?
I've been keeping up with which schools have sent out interview invites with this thread

Hi friends! Have any of you replied to the supplemental application question: "Is there any information not included elsewhere in your application that you would like us to know?" I can think of a few things to say, but it's such a broad question I'm trying to consider the best direction to go. Any thoughts?

Had my interview today, was very laid back. Only 30 minutes was devoted to the single interview session that was conducted (two faculty and you). Rest of the time was dedicated to staff presentations, lunch & student panel, and wax carving a tooth for fun.
If you don't mind, I would love to hear what your experience was like once you finish your interview. I've heard VCU interviews are pretty chill, but just a little curious what to expect :)

Things are changing due to covid obvi but ~100 students. And it depends on what context you mean faculty - if its a lecture then 1:100. Your early sim lab classes have assigned faculty about every 10 students. There are also upper classmen that sign up to TA that help out in those lab courses as well. If you are struggling with didactic upper classmen get tapped to tutor (the dean asked me to tutor some 1st yrs after the first big anatomy exam). When you get into clinic you'll have 1-2 faculty per 8-10 students.
Didactic stuff its pretty easy to get into office hours if need be. Then for clinical/sim lab stuff there are a ton of people happy to help; they're all dentists obviously so any of them are good to give you support on the more practical dental stuff.

Sorry - class culture - I felt like it depended on the class. Classes sort of get a label just like anywhere; I feel like our class was pretty chill (although definite insane gunners) but there were whispers that admin thought our class was a bunch of slackers. While some other classes were notorious cut throats apparently. So it varies. But generally (in our case anyway) the class really supports each other, like shares notes, a big shared google drive etc. And that loosened up even as the years went on.

Appreciate your honest opinion, thank you!
