Any other Africans on here that's applying to or already in Dental school? If so, where are you from? I'm from Nigeria and everyone else I know if going the medical route. I'd like to know that I'm not alone. Lol

According to the ADEA, underrepresented minority (URM)-Black or African American, Hispanic/Latino of any race, American Indian or Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander-students composed 13 percent of the overall applicant pool. You are not alone :)

Lol! Possibly! Glad you ended up at Baylor! If I wasn't getting free rent and food 20 minutes away from the medical center, then I likely would've attended Baylor as well.

Moved to the states when I was 8...been here ever since, so I guess I'm pretty Americanized..:highfive:
