It is expensive course but little less than NJ. In my opinion if you are planning to apply in a school with the bench test exam than it is a good idea to take any of the Bench prep course. I think VCU is little different than other places. If you are near to VCU than why not to take the course.... I have heard people saying it is worth taking the course. But it all depends upon individual.

Hi,
I booked "Lindon Row Inn" where is located in downtown Richmond, a 10 minute walk from the Virginia State Capitol and 20 min from dental school. The boutique historic inn offers a daily continental breakfast, free Wi-Fi and a 24-hour front desk.
any female who would like to share the room with me, message me, plz
I paid $260 for three nights, so it'd be $130 per person.
