When I went to my dentist, I was impressed that he went to Wake Forest for undergrad. Why? Because it's wake forest. I have been wondering... do dental schools and clients look at where you went for undergrad? I currently attend an unranked state school, and I'm looking to transfer anyways. It's just not cutting it for me here. Here's the run down: UGA: In the regional south, UGA is a pretty good school. It's decently ranked. It has some strong programs. It's just a good in-state flagship school to go to. If I choose to go to UGA, I will have to stay at my current school for one more semester and transfer for spring 2013. I am a freshman, so next year I will be a sophomore. I have a pretty good schedule lined up for next semester at my current school. I was thinking it would be cheap for me to go to an in-state school. After all, organic chemistry at Harvard is organic chemistry at UGA. Science doesn't change...but then there's the dental admission factor and undergrad factor. Ohio State: Ohio State is renowned. Excellent research school. Excellent dental school, pharmacy school, med school. It's just great. I would love to be a buckeye. The only points here is will it be harder than UGA and it will cost a lot more being out-of-state(granted I already have 40 something credits done in-state on scholarship). I have been accepted for fall 2012 transfer, and I can be a buckeye any time I wish. In the dental community, what do you all think? Also, it should be noted that GMC dental school is really, really cheap for UGA residents. It's around 80k I'm not sure if it's a GOOD dental school. I would also want some input on this. MCG is my safety school. MCG has opened up a UGA campus for med students, and I'm wondering if I could possibly do some networking on that front. OSU dental school is impossibly hard to get into..but case can be my backup if I want to get in-state? I'm really confused and time is running out. What should I do?
