    In about four days, we will find out whether we got accepted or rejected. So, let's say that you got rejected from all schools you applied to (God forbids). Do you have a backup plan? Will you try again next year? Personally, I will apply again next year.

    I will definitely apply next year... this is only my third year of undergrad... so it's not a big deal to wait a year if I have to... I REALLY want to do this. I'll probably try to get a job somehow relating to dentistry and spend next year doing that.

    I don't think I will apply again next year. Ive already been trying to get in for 3 years. If 3rd time isn't the charm, it's time to boot myself into reality. I think that if I don't get in this year after having taken a post-bac program, I'll just have to find a career in the biological sciences, as there is really nothing else I can improve with my dental application. :(

    don't give up hope yet. I hope you don't tell the adcoms this... but seriously...don't give up. BUT THEN AGAIN, hopefully you get in so that you don't have to consider a different career. Stay strong. I'm amazed you persevered for 3 years applying. :D you deserve to get in. hehe
