    Hey all-
    I am looking to ramp up my application and apply for ortho next year. Can people who are familiar or have been through the process give me some information about the process. Like:
    When is the best time to apply?
    What exactly is the match system and how does it compare to the regular application system?
    What are some key things they look for in applicants?
    What is considered a good board score?
    Any other info would be greatly appreciated! I can use all the help I can get
    Thanks all

    Pass is the application process through ADA. Match is a company that runs the matching process - google national dental match for more info.

    Best to apply as soon as PASS opens - I think its like sometime in May

    They look for research, high board scores (the higher the better - anything under 90 is getting borderline)
