UBTom makes a good point.Originally posted by UBTom
Also, "ghetto" schools are usually the ones with good patient availability because they are often the only source of affordable dental care for the underpriviledged inner-city populations-- i.e. you have a captive patient pool. Makes life easier during your third- and fourth-years when you need patients with specific problems (operative, endo, prostho, etc.) to satisfy clinical production requirements! A good source of licensing board exam patients too if you are going to practice in a region that requires live-patient exams for licensure..

Hi DesiDentist, thank you for replying my question about "how many biology courses should I take?". I saw you get very good opportunities to be accepted and I think the courses you took (general bio, neurobio, microbio, and biochem) are really desired by dental schools. Hey, good luck for your UPenn and Temple interview. Let us know while you get "real-time" admission as soon as you finish your interview!
Yeah, it's for everyone. I haven't gotten anything lately from other schools as well. However, I DID get that UPENN interview confirmation letter as well, Desi. I'll see ya there! Time to dust off that suit.Originally posted by DesiDentist
I was thinking that since I haven't taken my DAT's schools aren't looking at my app. But it looks like its for everyone.
I'm interested to know what NYU and Columbia is upto. I thought NYU would definately hurry up and start interviewing.
UNLESS if you are brown like me and you expect to be searched from the waazoo to who knows where. Buy a paper ticket, and don't lose your temper, and if they touch you in the wrong spot..STARE.Originally posted by ItsGavinC
Tickets are a joke! BTW, many airlines (if not all) are adding $25 to the price of paper tickets, so be sure to use e-tickets when you can. I prefer them (so you should to! ).

If you want long secondary applications you should check out the one for UCSF. There are 12 essays. Oh joy!
Which is very interesting, indeed, considering that the Arizona school has no affiliation whatsoever with AZCOM.Originally posted by DesiDentist
I got Arizona's secondary today. It's pretty long, also there are two essay questions:
