Buffalo is a wonderful school if you are in-state at NY. UMDNJ is great at clinical and it is very easy to establish residency once you get in. I myself am deciding b/w columbia and UMDNJ. Lets hope ppl post helpful things so we both can benefit from it.

although i did not apply to columbia, i was accepted to the other 3 and am choosing nj. my top choices all along have been 1)umdnj and 2)stony brook...i was personally not impressed at all by tufts...i liked umdnj's newer facilities, clinical exp you get there, medium class size, the students, low tuition (def a plus)...i got an overall good feeling from nj...i liked buffalo also but i am from downstate ny and prefer the atmosphere here to upstate ny...as far as columbia goes i obv don't know...don't think that helped much...if anyone is choosing umdnj, where in nj are you planning on living bc i am not so sure i want an apartment right in newark itself... :)

ive only heard good things about buffalo. Right now its my first choice, but im also waiting for columbia and upenn to get back to me. The only reason why i would go to columbia over buffalo is that i plan to work in NYC, and going to columbia would help me make connections in the long run. Other than that Buffalo is great and is prob. where i will go if i dont get into columbia or upenn.

rocco: I'm curious as to what you didn't like about Tufts too... Because pre-interview, I wasn't sure about Tufts because I knew little about the school and their large class size but post-interview, I was definitely positively impressed! Their clinics are new also (as is some of UMDNJ). But I do agree that Tufts is more $$...

JMoney: I don't know about Case cause I didn't apply there but Tufts is definitely a nice school... it's worth debating over! :D

Jmoney: i got accepted to case also, and i actually liked case a lot...

Yes I think tufts was a nice school with a nice clinic, but I did not like how so many students had to share a chair in the clinic...what gave me the negative impression though was speaking with two 2nd yr students at tufts who didn't seem very aware of the program at their own school (which left a bad taste in my mouth)...but that is just me- if you liked the school go for it bc im sure others have very positive opinions on tufts also...a lot of students are successful there and it holds a high reputation with other dentists that I know... :)
