Hello all, my adviser received a copy of the 45th edition of the ADEA Official Guide to Dental Schools.

There are major improvements most important is that the breakdown of total applicants to each dental school is more detailed.

It divides in-state and out of state for each school and the number that are interviewed and accepted!

Of course it has the stats of the entering class (DAT and GPAs).

Highest Academic average for the 2006 entering class : Harvard, 24.4
2nd-Highest " ": Columbia, 22.16
3rd-Highest " ": UCLA, 22


[I am not a vendor for ADEA!]

I bought it for my cycle, if you want to get it go to

There is no way harvard jumped 2.4 points in DAT average...

UCLA's is not that suprising, nor is Columbia's...they've both been near 22.

i'm assuming this info will eventually show up on predents?

Yeah... are you kidding me with 24.4? A 24 is supposedly 99.5 percentile. If 12000 take the DAT each year, that means only 60 people in the WHOLE COUNTRY scored a 25+! Therefore, chances are half the Harvard class or more scored 25+ (I'm assuming they accepted some people with 22s and 23s). Perhaps 18-20 out of 60 went to Harvard alone. That is insane.

I mean, those percentiles may be off and more people scored over 24, but still... that's an impressive statistic.

Wow, most every school is 3.5-3.6 avg GPA. I was looking over at the ADA's website last night reading a report of economics and dental education, and in 1990 the avg. incoming student DAT was a 16.1!!!!

Actually a very interesting report if anyone cares to go through it, they cover dental faculty salaries and trends in dental education etc. the grade graphs are on pg. 123 of the pdf.

These are the stats for the class of 2010...not 2011. The stats for students who got in this year might be a bit higher than what posted above. Wowwww....it is getting harder and harder to get into dental school. It happened faster than I initially thought.

I was considering waiting to apply next year.... Maybe not. I might not get in then!

I have to figure out where my residency is soon tho :/ NC or FL ! Which would be better overall/easier to get in to!?

Right now I am sitting on a 3.73Avg 3.52Sci 22DAT

Good luck to you all, I am already starting to get a little worried.

I have heard from admissions committees that the big jump in grades and DAT was last year. I bet that the grades and DAT scores for 2011 are slightly higher than 2010 but not as big of a jump as it was from 2009 to 2010 (Harvard from 22 to 24.5....and most other schools jumping a whole point).
