I have been accepted to both, but I am wondering what the opinion of this board is about which would be better just as far as dental school and learning to be a dentist. I am familiar with Louisville and know many of the students, however, it is older and I have heard some complaints from some, but nowhere is perfect. With that being said, I am wary of Case's new curriculum because I don't want to be a guinea pig and I am not a big fan of the PBL style, though I know Case is hybrid lecture/PBL. Case does have a very good reputation, but I am not sure about Louisville.

If you all could give me some reasons why to choose one over the other I would appreciate it.

Thanks:)

Bump. I am just looking for a little bit of advice about this issue because it is a big decision and I know there are a few people on here who have looked at each school and may have opinions one way or the other.

Thanks.

Louisville all the way. Why you ask? Cause it's where I will be and therefore the greatest school in the world. Also te cost of living is cheap, and the city of Louisville and the area around the school is far less ghetto.

if you want to be at least somewhat decent at practicing dentistry and not get sued for paralyzing half the face of a patient, i would choose case.
