I do not know which schools are the best, but I have seen an international student getting into Case and NYU.

There are lots of international students at Creighton, but I think most of them went there for undergrad as well.

I talked to several international students during my interview at Columbia University (mostly Canadian). UOP and Creighton accept international students as well. If you want more info, you should check ADEA guide to dental school and predents.com. Your Gpa is good. Just do well on your DAT and you will have a shot. Good luck.

I thought Georgia only accepted in state applicants. Am I wrong?

Buffalo accepts quite some Canadians, and they also accepted me. So I guess they are pretty international friendly as well.

Puerto Rico? I never heard of anybody that went there but I love spanish and I am actually semi fluent and would probably enjoy the experience and advance my espanol simultaneously. Thanks I will look into that as well.:rolleyes:

I am in the same boat as u r... I am an international student... and i m from India!

UOP is a good option too... also, they have a 3 year program (instead of a 4 year program)!
