    Hello, I'm new here. I"ll be starting UMDNJ this august and i was wondering if there is anyone here from UMDNJ. Anyone a commuter or you live in the area? How do you guys like the school (if you already go there).

    I was wondering the same thing, as it looks as though I'll be starting there in the fall and it's a big move for me. Let me know what you find out :)

    yeah, it is! well, i'm still waiting for a response from baylor, though i think it'd be really good for me to go out of state for dental school (for the experience). i also interviewed at NYU, but i wasn't impressed. on the other hand, i got a good feeling from UMDNJ and i've already paid my deposit, so i'm 90% sure that's where i'll be going. i'm a little nervous about the move, because i don't know the area at all, so i'm trying to figure out housing. what about you?

    Hey guys Im was wondering if UMDNJ accepts out-of-state applicants. Isnt that what it says in the ADEA Guide to Dental Schools? or am I mistaken? I was wondering because I have relatives in the area and would really like to go there if possible, but I was under the impression that they dont accept out-of-staters (also, Im canadian).

    And whats the tuition there?? Environment? Facilities? Faculty?? All info would be great. thanx

    and good luck to those starting this august

    It used to be that UMDNJ gave priority to NJ residents... But they changed the policy this year and doesn't do that anymore. So yes, apply if you want to.

    HTH!

    Heh UB Tom
    Does it mean that intl.studens can also apply? My probleme is that I am an international student, but NJ resident. Am I eligible to apply ? i thnk I need to call them and ask. If someone from Canada is eligible to apply, why not someone from a different country, but still NJ resident. The think is that I did a pred-dental intership at UMDNJ and the people there know me!!!

    During my interview, there were about 10 applicants- half were from NJ/NY, the other half were from out of state. I'm from CA, and I've been accepted, so definitely go for it!

    I just emailed them last night. They said you have to be a resident of one of the states...or have a green card. Otherwise, international students cant apply.
