I seriously cannot wait to move down to Florida and get started with dental school. I have an older cousin who will be in his third year of dental school when i get there.

Are you excited? What do you plan to do about housing?

Ditto! Being out of college for two years, I'm SOOO excited to soon be around ppl my age and finally doing what I want to be doing! And being a few miles north of South beach doesnt hurt either ;) S. Fla, here we come! :p

Heck Yeah! I met a girl during my interview and we exchanged phone numbers b/c she had a condo in the area she was looking to rent out (if she got accepted). We both got accepted, so we'll be rooming together this fall :D

I too will be joining you guys at NOVA :D

Housing is expensive in south florida, but to put it in perspective we still pay a LOT LESS than people in NYC and Boston. For me, I will probably live 20-30min away from Campus b/c my family has a condo down by the beach that I might just move into.

I am soo excited to meet everyone. We should all try and meet up before classes start!!!

NSU's new rec center is under construction. If you decide to attend here, then you'll definitely see the new rec center during your 4 years here. It is projected to be completed in 2006 some time.

Here's more info:

It will be state-of-the-art! I'm just hoping that I get to see it before I graduate!

About orientation: One of the NOVA D-1's that will be helping with orientation saying that for this year they want to move the "O" date to early July. Mean while, let agree on meeting date and place.

I will check it with proper people (Su Ann, Dr. Lipman, Dr. Keller) and let you know. So far NOVA didn't send anything officially about "O" day. I guess they're waiting for the guys from MBS to finish their last semester and see who will drop out of the list (here at NOVA guys from MBS have a privelege to be accepted to med or dental if they finished with certain GPA). Once they know it for sure, they will make the move. But again, it is only my assumption.

I am pretty sure all the MBS guys are passing, so that shouldn't be an issue there. Anyways, about orientation, last year orientation was the Thursday before school started and went through sunday with school starting on that monday. That means that if they do it the same as they did it last year, orientation would be July 28-31, with school starting August 1st. Hope this helps.

Hey bioshawn, you can move down here according to your plan - no worries. The orientaton dates will be sent out in a few days to all students. From what I saw at Dr. Lipman's office, the "o" days is scheduled for the first week of August, from Tue. to Sunday. The first few days they gonna brainwash everyone with MediaDent computer software that keeps crashig on us for the last few years, then they gonna give us a few boxes with bunch of things we will not use till the second or third year and at Sunday is acctualy the "white coat ceremony" and then the very first Monday our horrors will start. So, your plans for the early july are fine.

Man, I should have done this a year ago. I've been ADDICTED to this forum ever since I first found it last September. Anywayz, I will be attending Nova in the fall. I'm currently rotting in Queens until July 15th. I found a cheap deal for $400 a month located 1.3 miles from campus. Nice place, friendly management. Just a few quick questions. Any word on any financial aid from Nova yet? I found a cheap website called allheart.com to order scrubs but was wondering about how close the color match has to be. And lastly, I know there is an unofficial student website for nsu-com (can't recall it currently) but does anyone know if there's one for the dental school? Thanks guys and congratulations on your acceptances.
