    I will be applying this year to US dental schools

    GPA 3.6 overall
    sciGPA 3.5, BCP 3.6

    have a very strong upward trend, basically all A's except first year. Double majoring in Chem and Bio. I have also done a honors thesis. Research volunteering, general volunteering, dental volunteering, Start-up company, etc.

    I got 19AA and 23PAT on my canadian DAT and will be writing my aDAT coming june expecting to get over 21+ on all sections.

    Schools I will be apply to
    USC
    USCSF
    Midwestern
    Kentucky
    Michigan
    Boston
    NYU
    Tufts
    Columbia
    Temple
    University of Pennsylvania

    I really want to avoid dental schools not to be blunt but ****ty areas. Ant input of addition/removal would be great. I want to cut the school list to 8. Preferably move to the West coast with nice weather.

      Q. Do you accept applicants with international residency?

      A. No. For the 2012-2013 application cycle those applicants without US citizenship or permanent residency will not be considered for the DMD program.

      To @Connauton, I think it is for American citizens residing in Canada who wants to apply using Canadian DAT score..?
      I didn't apply to Tufts, but I have read from premed101 and other forums that Tufts does not accept international students anymore.

        Add Buffalo, Detroit Mercy, Minnesota.

        Also, why do you want to cut your list to 8? Your stats are right around the average, so maybe apply to a couple more than 8. As a Canadian you're fighting for a smaller number of spots right off the bat.

          But private schools shouldn't discriminate so everyone is on the same playing field

            not exactly entirely true
            look at the statistics of how many Canadians were accepted to each school in the past several years. (doctoothache uploaded the excel file)
            from what I can remember, even Canadian friendly schools (either private or not) only gave out 10% of their class seats to Canadians.
            Is it because non-Canadian students had higher gpa and DAT? Maybe, maybe not. but nonetheless those are the statistics.
