briansle said:For a highschool student you sound really focused and smart. If I were you I would just apply to the best undergrad college you can get into. I'm sure your smart enough that you will get into multiple dental schools even if you decide to go to a really competitive school like Princeton. I don't see why you want to rush things? I know that you looking for a guarantee to dental school and you feel that UOP offers one, but have confidence in yourself. Go to a really good undergrad, work hard, and then apply to dental school. In the end I think this is a much better decision, you'll have more fun too.
