From what I remember, I believe it goes like this:

Harvard, UCONN, Columbia, UPENN. In that order.
I know that Stonybrook is up there somewhere after these, also hard as some of these to get in there.

If Harvard invited me, well.... wow... i wish.

:laugh:

whoops. You were asking about boards. I don't know, then. :scared:

No, no.. I was right the first time. It is in that order. Boards :smuggrin:

Here's what I could find on Dental School Rankings:

How are Dental Schools ranked, and how could I get more information about the rankings?



Thanks for the question on our Ask the Dentist Web site regarding the ranking of Dental Schools. To my knowledge, there have only been two individuals or organizations that have ranked dental schools; US News and World Report in 1993 and The Gourman Report on a periodic basis. Both organizations have multple flaws in the methodology of ranking the schools.

The major problem is that the rankings were based on the perception of Deans, administrators, faculty and others about the relative quality of the schools and not on any objective criteria that compared "apples to apples". The dental schools complained bitterly to US News and as a result US News has discontinued ranking US dental schools. Parenthetically, the dental schools were given wide acclaim by our colleagues in higher education as being the only education enterprise that has stood up to US News. As you may know, rankings of all colleges and universities are under intense criticism by our colleagues in the higher education community.

The original poster was asking about how schools do on the boards, not the dental school rankings.

That's what we've been told too for Part I. It's been Harvard #1 and UCLA #2 for awhile, but I have no idea where any of the other schools rank. It's interesting how secretive schools are about this stuff.

I was told that harvard is #1 and uconn is #2 for boards, by admissions people at uconn. I think its pretty ridiculous that we cant find official board score rankings from a website somewhere. :thumbdown:

Did they say what boards they were talking about? Part I, Part II, regional boards? I know last year Harvard was #1 with a 92.7 average for part I, and UCLA was #2 with a 92.0, with the next closest school having an 88, though I don't know what school that was.

Tufts published their numbers in the big book they give you at interviews.

On Boards Part 1 from 98 through 06

Their rank: 12, 7, 8, 9, 6, 5, 24, 23, 4.
I thought I remembered him saying that you could get all this information which is published by the ADA.

"National Board (DDS) Part I and Part II: Ranked in 1st Quintile last six years."
