    Wow I must really suck at interviews and/or have no people skills because I had a ton of interviews and my stats are competitive with what is being posted, yet no match.

    Did you get my PM? One of them will be joining you down in Gainesville. Two from my school matched to Case, one to Indiana, and one took a non-match position at Loma Linda. I'm not sure about the rest, I've been at the hospital today. Boy #3 was born at 3:00 EST. 7 lbs. 5 oz, 19.5 inches long, and incredibly handsome like his dad. :thumbup:

    Research: not really helped with project in school
    Extracurriculars:Have worked in pedo practice for 2 years doing sedations and pretty much everything pedo. Not really sure if this helped applied to 37 programs got 6 interviews and luckily I matched somewhere


    For everyone who didn't match hang in there. It is a crap shoot. I actually got in to a program I liked but to be honest it was probably the interview I felt the least positive about. I saw over 200 people who ranked programs didn't match. That doesn't include the people who withdrew or the people who didn't get any interviews (didn't rank anywhere). Over 200 seems like a lot to me. Anyway, hang in there. I wish you all the best. If anyone is looking for a job in peds pm me. I boss is looking for some people

    Hey cabo....Im currently a 4th year dental student who just matched into an AEGD program....Im very very interested in applying to pedo next year, but I have very limited experience, no research and I wasnt really active in dental school. I was hoping that my AEGD was going to improve my application, but pedo is so competetive these days that Im a bit worried.

    I noticed that you got into a really good program at UCLA....wow, congrats! How did you pull that off? Do you have any tips, cause I would love to goto a program like UCLA....living in LA during residency sounds like a dream! Thanks for your help. PM me if you would like.

    Has the Pedo Match occurred for everyone? Is it a bad sign if I haven't heard? Maybe my match will come this week in the mail. My friend Blkwidow said he matched at 4 programs. GoneFishin sent me PM and said he prematched in Cincy but then took a spot somewhere else. Does this make any sense?

    Congratulations to you and your successful resident.

    Was the class rank high? How much does a GPR play a role in decision factors?

    Everyone matched (or not) on Jan 25th. You should have heard either way by email.

    No, you cannot 'match' to more than one program.

    Yes, you can be offered a position outside of match.

    Have you tried to call Jacobi to double check if the position is not filled yet? Also, I think the program director there is setdoc7. Good luck.

    I highly doubt that anyone could have gotten into a respectable program with low 80's on Part I. Lots of people have low 80's on Part II and match, but to get interviews with low Part I scores would be very difficult. I would think about re-taking.

    hi, since you guys are all very experienced in the application process for pedo, can you answer these questions for me please?
    (i just started dent :p)

    for pedo, what's the cut-off gpa (and also average gpa if you konw) they accept?
    does having little experience working with kids after dent school started affect your application if you did quite a bit of work before dent school?

    thanks in advance!

    Not true, know several residents who got into pedo with low pt 1 scores. It is not as academic as it is patient management. A lot is personality, believe it.

    This is mainly responding to Himynameis. To be completely honest people who matched in peds are all over the board as far as rank, gpa, experience, GPR/AEGD, etc go. I know several people who matched at great programs with low board scores. A few more who matched with minimal peds experience while finishing dental school. Some others who have spent ten plus years working in practice. Pedo is really all over the board and it is as much if not more about your personality then anything else (totally agree with setdoc). If you are currently in dschoo;l just do the very best you can, see if peds is really for you by spending as much time as possible in the pedo department, and apply. If you don't match try to get into a GPR or AEGD or you can find a job working in a peds office. If you have a good attitude and are willing to work at it you will get in. Just my 2 cents

    Nothing more true. People get in with 75's on part I and part II and in the bottom half of their class. They prove they are truly interested in Pedo, have a good personality and are clinically sound, and they match. Simple as that.
