    With start of the race approaching, it might help to look at some statistical information available from ADEA in deciding which schools to place on your wish list.

    Thank you so much Doc. I really appreciate it.

    Do you have the stats for 2011 Dental schools rank based on Race (asian specifically)?

    i feel a bit dumb asking and maybe its just not working right for me but...

    can you explain the chart a bit. it seems like theres a bunch of gpas and % in state and then schools listed way underneath those.

    NBDE scores are about as closely guarded as Area 52.

    The other option would be to print ~70 pages that are available on line and still be left scrambling to find the info from the other 200 pages.

    -How many out of state applicants applied...
    -What percentage of the entire application pool were OOS applicants
    -Total # of OOS candidates interviewed
    -The next two columns (I think!) are total applicants interviewed and then the number of OOS applicants interviewed.
    -If you go over 3 more comlumns, I think it gives you the number of OOS students accepted.

    Not sure.

    If you want to see my discussion of Out of State advantages/disadvantages go HERE: http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=791510&highlight=dantemac

    It uses the 2009 data but is pretty clear as to which schools are OOS unfriendly

    Sorry, this is kinda off topic... what Microsoft version are you all using? my computer always opens the excel sheet in compatibility mode. I think several columns get moved down to one column?? Not sure.

    Thank you DocToothache for taking out time to help us pre-dents

    Do you mean compatibility mode? I don't think there's a computability mode...

    Hi would anyone know what school MID is in that chart? I tried googling MID dental and came up with an dental academy that treated horses.

    Just curious, where did you get the stats for # Accepted? I have the 2010 ADEA book and it only list # applied, # interviewed and # enrolled. Did you contact each school individually or is this an estimation?
    And I noticed for some of the schools, there aren't all of the calculations. Creighton, for instance, all of the numbers are provided to make the calculations (Total interviewed/accepted, for example), but they are blank at the bottom of the column. Just wondering where the info came from.
    Thanks!

    For some schools the information is fragmented. There are no estimates. Your 2010 ADEA guide has the same info in Table 3-2 (p 32). The schools that did not provide the info are listed at the bottom with no numbers.

    The number of applicants interviewed/number of applicants accepted. It is a way of getting a handle on the chances of acceptance with an interview.

    For all the posters lurking on this forum waiting for the 2012 application cycle: Use this guide RELIGIOUSLY when applying. Buying the book also couldn't hurt.

    You are likely to find discrepancies with all the school. Keep in mind that the Guide is published in February.
