i posted this same question in the pre-dent forum, but i wanted opinions of current dental students my bf is applying to dental school next year and he is wondering which address he should use. He is originally from arkansas but he also has a illinois address (aunt and uncle's home). there are some schools that participate in the WICHE program, where they save seats for states with no dental schools such as hawaii, arkansas, etc. do you guys think that he has a better chance at Illinois dental schools if he uses his uncle's address (are illinois schools competitive?) or the WICHE program. does state of residency matter in his case? thanks!
