Obviously not a true statement. It may generally apply, however. The same could also be said for med applicants -- those who don't get into med. school would not have a very good chance of getting into dental school (at least not on the first application cycle).Originally posted by Dr. Wall$treet
if your stats arent good enough to get you into dental school there is no chance of you getting into med school. it is about 10 times more comepetiive to get in.
Very true. Think of it this way: a select few medical specialties have enjoyed higher incomes and better hours as of late. Eyes, rads, and skin would probably top this list, although there are others. Even those have had some loss of income, although not as great as other specialties.Originally posted by JScrusader
You know whats funny? A lot of doctors now recommend going into dentistry instead of medicine as they are unhappy with medicine now. One ortho surgeon told me that his income has dropped 5-10% every year he has been in practice!

You cannot simply look at the percentage of applicants that got in to see which is more competitive. You have to look at the stats of the people getting in. I'm not saying it is, but med school could be 10 times more competitive, even though a larger percentage get in. It would just mean that, in general, more highly qualified people apply to med school.
