I received a rejection from CWRU recently. So far, though, I didn't receive an interview to any other schools I applied to. Stats: GPA: 3.0 Science: 2.9 DAT/PAT: 20/18 ( got a horrible 16 on bio, though ) Notes: 4 W's, 1 D in sciences. Also, one semester of academic probation but the difficulty of my courseload is high. Recs: Not sure but I expect them to be below average Quality of Undergrad School: Nationally well-known and respected ( what a waste of money this is ) I applied to seven dental schools across the country, which includes Columbia, Penn, NYU, Detroit, USC, and Pitt. CWRU is statistically "easier" to get in than most other dental schools. The common belief is that you will get rejected everywhere else if you get rejected by a lower ranking schools. So should I write the year off and assume I won't get in anywhere? I know that there are some who would rather feel elated by my news and there would be some that feel sympathy to my cause. But I'd like to know your impartial thoughts to this, if you have any and are willing to share.
