    Shadow two or more dentists for 100+ hours; take DAT and score in the 20s; get involved in the community; and try to get some research experience. If you do all of this while maintaining a 3.5+, you'll have an excellent shot.

    make sure you have some profs who will write you good ref letters. i think that international applicants have to have better stats or something that stands out on their app, otherwise why educate people who may not stay in the country after they graduate.
    look into case western and detroit mercy, they like canadians
