    well i am sure the applicants in the cycle after you will be glad you mentioned your stats :laugh:


    people, the whole idea of posting your stats is to help applicants the year after you. if you really do wanna help your fellow students, then you should post your stats according to the format given in the 1st post in this thread. otherwise, its of no use to know who wants to go where.

    International Students are those, who are not US citizens or Permanent Residents (Green Card). Practically this means, everybody who is here in the US on some kind of a Visa. You are considered an Intl Student even if you are in the process of becoming a Permanent Resident :( .
    Canadian Citizens are usually considered Intl Students, but lets not forget all the folks from China, India, Taiwan, Philippines, Carribean etc..

    Now fellow intl. students. Where are you all applying ? Thus anyone know if UMDNJ accept intl. students ? I think they don't because they still haven't change their policy. I need also a list of schools that accepts intl. students

    yea, this is true about UCLA.

    also, UCSF only accepts students who have gone to university in the US...as I found this out the long and expensive way after paying to apply there :oops:

    You are correct, as the above poster mentioned. That thread was over a year old, however. If anybody is interested in more current information, check the International Dental forum (LOTS of students applying over there!).

    Can anyone plse help me!
    I have a bachelor's degree in Mol Bio from Univ. TX dallas, 3.5 gpa, honors program, lots of activities, lots of dental shadowing (but done in Kuwait), working on getting in some shadowing here in the states; also have research. I am international so they will be more stringent in my case. Will take Dat Aug 30- am applying right away.

    Extra-curriculars: student government- senator, committee chair, tons of other stuff like being in the committee that chooses the dept dean.

    Research: I researched drugs at the tissue culture level that could be potential treatment for neurodegenerative diseases.

    Working on DAT!

    I need to knw this:
    1) What schools am I likely to get into? Is there any way I can call and find out where to apply to even be considered? (financial constraints)
    2)Is there a great advantage in applying through your pre-health advisory committee? I already graduated- I hope they won't hold a non-AC application against me.
    3)How can I find a cosigner for a loan?
    4) In general what you think of my credentials: strong, good, fair, bad, poor?
