I am currently a Chemical Engineering major and would just like to see if there are other engineering majors out there that have applied, or have applied and been accepted. I am a senior, and will probably apply within the next two years.:)

BASc - Industrial Engineering (more like the engineering of business), 4th year student, all technical electives in biomaterials and material science

BSc - 2.5 years of a science degree, fulfilling the requirements + taking some second and third year courses during summers + overloading my engineering curriculum (courses are free if i do that)

I applied this cycle. If I don't get into the school of my choice, I am gonna do an MEng in biomedical engineering and repply in early june next year.

Best of luck to all!

I've got a BS and MS in Mechanical Engineering and worked in industry until January of this year.

I have spent the past two years doing prerequisites. I applied this cycle, had two interviews already, and am patiently awaiting December 1st.

Bioengineering major here. just try to keep up that sci GPA. i know its hard with the courseload we take but its hard for all adcoms to justify taking a engineer with 3.1 over another major with a 3.8. keep it in the 3.3-3.4 range and you should be alright. sadly enough, biomaterials in dental school isn't stressed very hard, and so all our knowledge about torque, stress-strain curves, and creep won't give us much of an advantage. if anything you should do better on the DAT in QR and PAT while being able to juggle ALL hard classes whereas most other undergrads might only have 3 out of 5 classes that were hard per semester.

goodluck engineers!!!!

I minored in Computer Science. That is not exactly engineering. I worked as a software engineer for 4 years. I learned a lot of problem solving skills.

Now I am about to graduate dental school. I I love dentistry. It is not very similar to software engineering obviously, but the problem solving skills have been useful. Plus a well-rounded experience helps.

I have a BS in mech. engineering, and I've been working in the auto industry since 2002. I am in the process of fulfilling pre-req's and have applied for this cycle. Oddly enough, QR was my worst score, and I got a 23 in RC! No wonder I'm leaving the engineering field...lol. Looking at the ADEA book, engineers have one of the highest acceptance rates among all majors that apply to d-school...although I think that's because of the low #'s of engineering major applicants...good luck to all!

I graduated from Chemical Engineering in 2007 and I'm applying for the 2010 cycle. After working in the field for a few years, I realized that it is definitely not what I want to do for the rest of my life.

I've heard that admissions committees like engineers and I've been getting some good feedback from them so far. I think that the most important thing is to do well on your DAT. It is difficult for a committee to compare your GPA (assuming that it's lower) with someone's in an "easier" major, so the DAT is the one thing that can make you stand out.
