    year 1 = 85,042
    year 2 = 86,218
    year 3 = 89,432
    year 4 = 88,943

    4 year total = 349,635


    Does anyone know how they are financing their dental school education, if you do indeed decide to take Columbia's offer. Apparently loans for health professions are capped at 250,000.

    Any international students have any information/ideas/advise/ on how to go about financing for 4 years?

    im curious to all those who were accepted and plan on attending... what was it about columbia that "sold you" on the school? i have an interview on january 20th, and what's selling me is the curriculum (the strong sciences and that 120 hours during the 3rd and 4th year that we get to specialize with) and research opportunities, but was anyone else on here duly impressed with something i havent mentioned? i've heard that they are revamping the clinical exposure and am just a little too anxious to wait a month to hear about the school lol. thanks!

    The p/f/h really got me hooked, and the class camaraderie was amazing too (they did this chant after someone yelled their class year) and everything seemed new that we saw which I liked. I actually ended up choosing Penn solely because of a gut feeling, but hey now there's an extra spot open! Good luck on your interview and make sure you explore the city a little!

    How does this 120 hour thing work?

    Two questions:

    When was the deposit to hold your seat due for dec 1 applicants?

    Anyone know when they will roll out another batch of acceptances for people interviewed dec 2?

    Diana said we'd begin finding out our statuses mid-January.

    a lot of people got waitlisted on 02/13. I interviewed on 01/20 and was told I was on the waitlist when I emailed, but never received the paperwork, whereas others have. I know one guy that's heard absolutely nothing and he interviewed the same day as me. not sure what to make of any of this. mind u, he had a 27AA and im sure had an amazing interview.

    Does your AADSAS say waitlisted, even though they haven't gotten back to you yet (officially)?

    Nope.. the status still says "Invited for Interview (November 29th)"

    I truly have no idea what to make of that, but I sent in a deposit to NYU so it wont be the death of me lol

    Thanks guys!! There were at least 15 spots left on the day I interviewed because they told us we were all interviewing for a seat. I know that at least two other people I met on the interview day got accepted and that one of them is depositing for sure as well. My DAT and GPA were pretty good but nothing outrageous. I just tried to let my personality shine through my personal statement and the interview. If they didn't like me for who I was, I had acceptances at other good schools and that was something that I could live with. For everyone on the wait list, keep your heads up! There's going to be a lot of movement in the next few weeks with interviews finishing up and double-depositors having to choose before April 1st. Good luck guys! :)

    Does anybody know exactly what grade qualifies as "satisfactory completion" mentioned in the acceptance?
