Schools vary in applicationd deadlines but most are around December. I think your counselor meant that August 31 is the lastest you should submit your application just to be on the safe side, although it is possible to submit your application later than that date.

unlike some other things in life, waiting until the very last moment when applying to dental school isn't too hot of an idea. it's not like showing up fashionably late to a party, but still getting in cause you missed the cutoff time by 5 minutes.

Applying early increases the chances you will get accepted. Applying later decreases them. that's pretty much it.

thx i realized that because i can do that but iam in the process of shadowing a dentist and it will be odd to suddenly ask him for a letter when i've only been there for a week, heh.
