    If any of you are working or have worked on the supplemental, how did you address the question:

    " Describe the major influences in your life."

    I'm stumped on this question. Any suggestions?

    I didn't finish that question yet because I don't know. Is it to corny to say your dentist? probably. And duke since you'd be competition I probably shouldn't say this but I think applying is worth a shot, because it really is a great dental school. While $150 is a lot I figure its worth it so that you won't regret later not applying

    yeah the thing is a beast.... I agree with you Krisko that it's worth a shot, even if applying OOS.

    That supplemental took me about as long as the AADSAS application to finish haha. The best advice I could give is honesty. Maybe not all your influences were huge, but small ones count as well. Maybe a piece of advice from an advisor, or a class from a professor. That kind of thing. A profound Confucious-esque statement would help, but lying or exaggerating could be worse, at least in my opinion that's how I went about it.

    Hope this helps!

    Yeah, and the question, give reasons for your interest in dentistry. Um, can't they read my personal statement?

    I have a question about the UNC supplemental not related to the essay question. When it asks "Date your AADSAS application was sent" do they mean the mailing date? Or the date you e-submitted?

    Thanks guys for your suggestions. I just talked about my two mentors and how they inspired me. That should be good enough.

    Faith: I filled it out as the esubmit date.
