Marquette because 25% of their class is made up of students from my undergrad (20 out of 80 incoming students usually). They also have a new building which means new equipment and a new curriculum to go with it. New curriculum will focus more extensively on clinical instruction, which I am very interested in.

Arizona because they are recruiting heavily here at my undergrad, and I expect that 10-15 students from my undergrad will comprise their incoming class of 50. I've also had extensive experience volunteering with Native American/minority populations. Also, Arizona will have all new equipment. Along with this, I'm interested in the M.P.H. degree which accompanies the DDS -- leadership skills are always of interest to me.

Those are the general reasons for my applying to those schools. I have some other personal reasons, but they are probably minor when compared to the above reasons.

By the way, you aren't having trouble with filling out secondaries, are you? Fishing for ideas perhaps? Tsk, tsk! ;)
