well, the good news is.... Part 1 for us is pass/fail

The bad news is... theyr probably gonna start paying more attention to part 2 scores since this one isn't pass/fail (yet) hahaha

There's no "cosmetic dentistry" specialty but Pros is the only specialty that teaches cosmetics. So, Pros.

Otherwise, become a GP and limit yourself to cosmetics.

Really? pass or fail for part I? wow ~ is this new for 2015?

Part I boards are going pass/fail in 2012 so it'll be c/o 2014 for those schools that take it after the 2nd year (most) and c/o 2015 for those who take it after the 1st year. It's been in the works for a while now.

Class rank is based on whatever it is after D3
