    Hi Reds

    I'm glad your UPenn date went O.K. Just keep on praying and hope for the best. How was Dr. Lopez ?..........mmmmh?I believe you'll say she's something else. Who were your other 2 interviewers? 'Cos I know you get interviewed by 3 members of the panel.

    As per Boston ,I think you also stand a good chance with your part 1 scores.....and honestly you'll probably stand a better chance if you'd taken your part 2. Notwithstanding ,I'll still advise you to hope for the best. I had my interview in Boston the day after my UPenn interview.You're interviewed by 1 member of the panel and for this year they are taking up to 65 adv standing students. Selection criteria is based on your board scores, Toefl scores,past and present dental experience,your personalty and so on. In Boston ,just like most other schools though, admission is on a rolling basis ,which means the earlier the better.

    Best of luck!

    Hey Reds

    I know there is a list coming out in December at Boston. Even if they make a list of 65 already, there are still gonna be people that are gonna opt out due to one reason or the other . A good example are people that will end up with multiple admissions ,..........they are only gonna opt for one and drop the other(s). Thereby creating spaces for people.
    I know a girl that was taken in both Tufts and Boston last year, she opted for Tufts therefore relinquishing the Boston slot.......So I'm preety sure that January interviewees still has a good chance especially due to the fact that session does not commence until August '03.

    Keep praying.
