How much faith should we put into these "self-reported plans of d-school graduates?" I can't trust some of these numbers. I mean I can be ranked #400 but still report I want to become an oral surgeon. Sometimes people can't get what they want. For example, can a school really generate 50 specialists? There aren't too many openings for specialties. In fact, some specialties are taken by general dentists who have been in private practice for a few years. I have no number 1 choice. I am totally undecided now. I wish we had dental school rankings.
