    There is a lot of disagreement on dental school rankings. Some are better in research but happen to be not so good in our areas like avg acceptance stats. of incoming students. Another factor are the avg. grades of students on the board exams 1 and 2. Funding by NIH is a big factor for some. Price is important. How long they have been a dental school. What specialty programs they have. Clinical exposure is a big one.
    There is not easy way to grade the schools in a comprehensive manner.

    There is no longer a ranking of Dental Schools.

    Make a list of areas you are looking for and make your own ranking list. For example, look at class size, location, cost, clinical experience, board scores, how many specialize, research funding, scholarships, etc.

    LOL I enjoy a good laugh every once in a while! I love these threads that break the monotony of the questions that you see over and over again.

    It's not working because a lot of people are trying to get on! Try again after midnight Pacific Standard Time. The best time to get on is usually around 3 or 4 AM! Good luck. Great info on these sites!

    Try this one:

    www.dentalschoolcrystalball.com

    This one tells you exactly where you will be accepted and when, where you will choose, if you will specialize or not, etc. Amazing!!!! Enjoy.
