    Hey guys I recently got into ASDOH and OHSU. I have no idea which school is better. Which school gives you better clinical experience? Which school prepares you better for the boards? Which school prepares you better to become a general dentist and which school prepares you better to specilize?

    Honestly - I just want to know which school gives you more overall opportunity...I dont care about money or city...someone please just give the inside word on which school they've heard is better ; )

    thanks gang!

    You will become a dentist no matter which school you choose to go to. You will have to work hard at both to do well, and prepare for the boards. I think the biggest factor would be, where would you rather live at?
    Oregon or Arizona?

    Portland is a nice city, Arizona is closer to Vegas (if you had time).

    Put both names in a hat, and pick out a school, and if you are hesatent go to the other school. Decision Made.

    So do people not research schools before applying for them nowadays?
