    I'm trying to finish filling this sucker out, but what do I put down for school code if I don't know which school I"m going to go to? Can I just put one of the schools i got accepted to down now and change it later if I change my mind?

    Put down all the codes for every school you have been accepted to and even the schools you are waiting to hear from. You will only be accepting the financial aid award from the school you chose to attend. You can list six schools comfortably and go back in later and add another six schools, should this be a problem for you, shortly afterwards. Complete your FASFA as early as possible. Good luck.

    On fafsa, some schools are not listed specifically as dental schools (e.g. loma linda---listed as loma linda university), should I just put down the main university code?

    Yes, many schools are not listed as the dental school specifically. The best way to check is to go to the school's main website and check the financial aid section. More likely than not they will give you the school code.
