    Tentatively, Orientation for freshmen at Buffalo will start August 2 this year.

    Orientation will be 2 weeks. First week will be all the computer issue/literacy/resources/electronic textbook stuff, second week will be all the dental stuff-- Equipment/instrument/materials issue, CPR certification, etc.

    Classes will start August 16.

    Actually, class starts on Sept. 29th. Orientation is the 15th-28th. I don't know why orientation is so long. It is nice to start late and have more time to earn some $$ but you know they are going to cram the material down our throats because of less time to cover everything :eek:

    ShawnOne,
    Dr. Ancajas told me May 10-14 is the scheduled "big move" (to the new building). I don't know the exact date UNLV starts either. Just know that, as I recall reading UNLV web site, their third semester of the 2003-2004 will end around August 22.

    May I know why Pitts has two orientation dates?
    Is the earlier one like a gathering?

    Beats me. The first orientation in June seems pretty exhaustive, covering a large variety of topics (housing, parking/transportation, campus walking tour, financial aid, scrubs, and so on ad nauseum...), so I'm not sure what point the August orientation serves.

    FWIW the second orientation date is titled "Academic Orientation for First-Year Students" on the calendar, and takes place just before the start of fall classes. Make of that what you will. *shrug*

    It looks like there are some social events (including a night out with DS1's, and the ASDA picnic).

    I dunno if I really agree with this plan....many people will not appreciate going to Pittsburgh, going back home and then going to Pittsburgh again....with all the stress of finding a place and moving, AND two orientations......just seems like a bit much.......I dont understand why they didnt just stick to the norm and have one orientation week :confused:

    Dr. BadVibes,
    On the contrary, the early date could go a long way. People act differently when they are people or when they are students. In most occasion, it is better to get to know that person rather than the student. I am sure those student going to UPitts will meet new people/staff/faculty and make new friends to keep for a long time. After their meeting, some of them may decide to meet up to arrange housing and other activities. It is similar to multiple posts on sdn, i.e. those with "who is going to___" titles. It is just nice to share the excitement about going to dental school with ur friends. In addition, knowing that people will go visit sch again anyway, it gives them a set date to group togther.

    I like having an orientation early, even if it means an extra trip to Pittsburgh. It's really convenient for housing purposes (i.e. finding roommates and apartment hunting).

    The second orientation, OTOH, is just puzzling. Honestly, is there any issue that cries out to be addressed only in August and not June? I can't think of any. Truth be told, that second orientation strikes me as being just a tool to ensure that DS1's get to PGH at least a few days before class (to settle in, and to avoid cutting the move too close and accidentally missing class like so many undergrads do).
