SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hi All I am new to this forum. Am using my friend's user ID. Am planning on applying to Ortho programs. I have some questions that might seem dumb, but I would appreciate your input. What's the difference between PASS and MATCH- I see that some programs I want to apply to participate in PASS and some in MATCH. And do I need to take the GRE to apply for an Ortho program? It seems like most programs want GRE scores!! Where do you all find the time to take GRE while in dental school?? Do they really look at your scores on the GRE or is it just a formality? What scores on the NDBE are considered competitive? Most people seem to have scores above 90 anyway. So do they look at your dental school GPA/class rank/NDBE/GRE - which would you all say is most important? Thanks in advance for your answers!
