Dental School Interview Consultation
The dental school interview is an opportunity for the admission committee to get to know you as a person. Many applicants view the dental school interview as an oral examination, where the interviewer asks a series of questions, and expects you to provide the single right answer. As a result of this misconception, applicants spend hours memorizing answers to every possible question the interviewer could ask. The interview is not an oral exam! How you do on your dental school interview depends on a number of factors. You have to provide thoughtful answers to questions, display professionalism, and leave an overall positive impression based on your verbal and non-verbal cues.
Admissions Helpers assisted me through my application process for dental school. With their help, I was admitted to several top dental schools including Harvard, UCSF, and UCLA. When the time came to begin the application process for residency programs in oral and maxillofacial surgery, it was only natural that I enlist the expertise of Admissions Helpers again. They helped me to understand what information needed to be highlighted and what information was not as necessary to keep on my Statement of Purpose essay, and again ensured that I ace my interview.
