    I recently got into the GSBS Masters program at UMDNJ-Newark.

    I was wondering if you guys think its ok to apply to dental school while still in the program?
    In other words, do you think there is a chance of geting in by just taking Masters classes at the school for a few semesters without actually completing the degree?

    Hey, you need to talk to the dental schools that you are planning on applying to. I spoke with a medical school admissions officer and they said DO NOT apply until you have a year of grades. Granted I am making up for a sub-par GPA, and this was a UC school but anyways... You get the picture. Depends on your undergrad statistics, and on the wants of the admissions officers. So you can share with us your stats, but I would definitely contact the schools!
