Tours & Interviews
Interviews are by invitation only during the fall semester. They will consist of a conversation with the Chair of the Admissions Committee followed by a tour of the School of Dentistry which will be conducted by a current dental student. During the tour there will be opportunities to talk to other students and faculty. All interviews are scheduled on Monday and Friday afternoons and the entire visit (including the tour) will take one to two hours.
During the spring and summer semester applicants need not be formally invited for an interview. Students who may be applying in the next admission cycle may call 800-544-5072 during the spring and summer semester to schedule a visit to the School of Dentistry. The format for this visit would be similar to an interview appointment.
