    [HPSP] Maryland (OOS) vs. Tufts

    Hi everyone, I’m trying to decide between Maryland and Tufts. I know most of this thread talks about cost, but I was selected for the HPSP, so the only factor is the cost of living above $2,200 per month. I already put in my deposit for Maryland, but recently interviewed at Tufts. I'm from...

    Maryland (IS) vs. Penn

    Any input would be helpful. Given that price is not a factor, would both schools give comparable clinical experiences for students wanting to practice general dentistry? I realize most recent grads will have slow hand skills anyway, so are the differences among schools' D3/D4 clinical years...

    How OOS friendly is UMD?

    From what I’ve heard UMD Dental School is decently OOS friendly but I have no recent statistics to back up those claims. I was wondering if anyone has any up to date OOS and Instate admission statistics for UMD. I’m a Maryland resident so I won’t be affected even if it is biased. I’d just like...

    UMDSOP vs Rutgers

    Hello! I know many people are pessimistic about the future of pharmacy and how saturated it is, I would like people to just keep those thoughts to themselves, since I am not asking about that. I got into both Rutgers and UMB SOP's. I would be going in as a transfer to Rutgers. I am having a...

    NYU or Maryland?

    Hello everyone. I'm having a hard time deciding between NYU and UMB. I'm a Maryland resident, so yes large cost difference. However, I don't like Baltimore and if it doesn't negatively affect my education or cripple me with debt in the future, the extra $ may be worth it for me to live the last...

    Maryland vs. Wake Forest

    3 days left to make a decision, and I am at the end of my sanity - although I'm very fortunate to have options at all, of course. The decision is complicated due to finances. UMD: - Loved the school, fantastic program and excellent residency placements, strong research. - Love the city, plus my...

    UMD hopeful success story

    I messed up pretty badly my first attempt in undergrad as a bio/pre-med major. I had taken 12 credits (orginally 15 but I dropped a class). Out of high school I had a 1200/1600 SAT and 3.2 GPA (did not study very hard ever). My grades for that semester resulted in my GPA being at a measly 0.45...
