Tuition is same
I know dental school is hard but looking for a school that supports you if you are struggling and won’t just fail you
Looking into a less hand skilled focused speciality bc of age so dental anesthesiology, dental radiology, dental public health, dental pathology

I took the DAT last week and I’m not super happy with my score in QR. ive heard that some universities can look past a low QR score if the rest of the scores are adequate, and I think I fall in that category. Unfortunately, I don’t think I’ll have time to improve enough on QR to retake before...

Dental school tuition is steep.
I heard from somewhere that we can try to "negotiate" scholarships into our financial aid package. I was wondering if that's a good idea and how people can go about doing that without being "rude"?
