    For me I am going to apply to 15 schools, and I am in the process of preparing the required documents. waiting for my TOEFL and NBDE official score reports to be mailed to me, although most of the schools have a certain code to send the reports directly from the institute but when I called these schools to ask about this issue they mostly prefer me to send it my self with all the other papers as a full package. If any one needs a web site for the certified translation and notarization of the transcripts and diploma, her is the one that I used http://www.masterword.com/ , since this issue was a hassle for me.

    Yes it can make a difference for some schools.. my suggestion is that u can inquire wid the individual schools regarding the validity of the LOR and nt take any risk. :)

    It depends on your priorities like the fees, the state, the level of experience that you can get and different other things. As for me I am going to apply to most of the schools that require step 1 NBDE only. I am not sure if I am going to apply to Marquette Uni in Wisconsin, Louisville in Kentucky, Minnesota or Oklahoma. Do any one have an idea of those schools? In term of the chance of acceptance?

    I suppose it is going to be in the Professional experience/ Other work experience, bcz we can not consider it as practice of dentistry

    When you enter the information of the evaluator and press save, there will be a place that tells you print paper request. This might help you more http://www.adea.org/dental_education_pathways/CAAPID/Pages/SubmittingPaperLettersofEvaluation.aspx

    If you can update your score results, request the ETS to send it directly to the school.
