Do an externship. AEGD or GPR aren't that critical for OMFS, but an externship is. I am training two interns who never did an externship but one did a GPR and the other an AEGD and I'd much rather have a fresh dental student that had done two months of externships....

Here's a list of traditionally strong programs:

Alabama, Louisville, LSU-Shreveport, LSU-New Orleans, Parkland, OHSU, Jacksonville, San Antonio, Houston, Kentucky...

There are more, but these are my top ten programs that I believe to have excellent reputations. All are different and will offer different plusses and minuses. Others will offer some more programs, so keep an ear open...
