Hey all, For those of you who've already applied or already gotten in, what were the biggest factors in your decision to go to your dental school of choice? I've been hearing that prestige isn't so much a factor as location and the amount of debt that you'll be coming out with. I'm deciding whether or not I want to go to a state school because I don't want to accumulate massive debt, but I do want a decent shot at specializing. I know if you're intent on oral surgery, then Columbia is the way to go, but I'm not sure 3X the tuition plus living in NYC is really worth the cost. Any advice? Thanks a ton!
