    Hi, I would like to hear from any Indian dentists who are presently practising in the USA. I am planning to apply for advanced standing to a few US dental schools in the coming year. However, I do not know the chances I have of getting admitted into a program. I would also like to hear from any dentists or dental students who can share relevant information regarding this. Thanx.

    Nope. You'll have to compete for admission to medical school alongside all the other applicants, and then go through the entire medical education/training process.

    BTW, your thread necromancy is impressive. The post before yours was published during the Clinton administration.

    I don't think you can even do it in your own country needless to say in the states. You shouldn't post anything when you're drunk.
