You will have to explain your logic a little bit better, because in your view, the ADEA /AAMS appear to be clueless. There is a great deal of variation on what individual ds report as accepted and, as such, it is an unreliable statistic. In either case, the information provided is that for the total population of applicants/enrollees and, like it or not, roughly 28% of applicants with excellent statistics (gpa, dat, mcat) do not enroll/matriculate in either dental or medical schools for whatever reason(s).
