The prospective employer is offering a guaranteed base for up to 5000 wRVUs and then $/wRVU system after 5000 wRVUs. I am not sure if 5000 RVUs annually is achievable.

    Is it possible to work for a corp or private office 3 days a week?

    I was looking to work essentially 3 days on 4 days off. Is this possible? Could I possibly do 3 10-12 hour shifts as a dentist working for a corp or private office as an associate? Is this something that needs to be negotiated? If you have personal experiences with this please let me know!

    Grad Plus or Federal loans?

    I've read that it is essentially only the private medical schools where undergraduate "prestige" of the university matters. However, I've also read that public medical schools give great preference to their own in-state students. So, as an attendee of a public school in a state with very few...

    MCAT Tutoring

    Which MCAT tutoring company did you all find most useful/helpful and most worthy of your money? Did you find that group tutoring was more helpful than one-on-one? Any side books or flashcards that you ordered that you found helpful aside from tutoring? Thank you!
