Ok did my 1st 2 hours of shadowing today with my Dentist Dr. Z He is so cool, real, and honest. We talked for about 20mins before and during him filling two cavities, Man got skills! I was telling him, I am only applying to my top five choices for the 2010 cycle. He said I should apply to as many schools as I can. His points are valid concerning wanting to be accepted my first time around. I know this is a good idea, but it will be costly. I am really going to have to keep my full time job. N*E* way I was just wonder how many schools you all are applying/applied to, and the cost including DAT testing and AADSAS fees? Thanks in advance I love this forum. PS. He said he is going to teach me everything he can and supports me anyway, he can. I loved the whole experience and I'm so pumped and looking forward to reaching my goal.
