Final List of Schools - Any Suggestions???

Discussion in 'Pre-Dental' started by BalooTheBear, May 14, 2008.

  1. Here are my stats and my schools I'm applying to. I'd love to hear any suggestions you guys would have:
    In-state: Illinois
    Cum GPA: 3.51 & Science GPA: 3.23
    DAT: 21TS/21AA/20PAT

    UIC (top choice)
    Southern Illinois
    Marquette
    Iowa
    Indiana
    Louisville
    Case Western
    Columbia
    Pittsburgh
    Buffalo
    NYU
    Maryland
    VCU
    UT-Memphis

    Any other suggestions? People have told me to apply to Boston/Tufts but I've also heard people say to not apply to schools that I wouldn't want to attend (don't want to attend due to location and costs (tuition and cost of living in boston))

    Also, I'm going on vacation for a couple weeks starting this weekend so I might not be able to submit my apps until the first week of June. Would i still be part of the 1st wave of applications?

    We're actually almost in the same stats except your cummulative gpa is a little higher than mine. I was also planning to apply first thing June/last thing May. I think we'll still be considered first wave of applicants... and as long as you get an early application, I think your stats are really good. The only thing that may hold you down a little is your science.

    UT-Memphis takes mostly instate students, and the majority of out of staters are from Arkansas (Tennessee and Arkansas have an agreement). It might help if you're a minority applicant though. Good luck applying!

    Why not Cali schools?
    I really don't want to steal this thread, but anyone know UoP tuition for each of the 3 years?

  8. Thanks for the advice. I've also spoken to some of my professors and they said i should go ahead and apply to boston/tufts anyways. i changed up my list a little so here's the ACTUAL final list:

    UIC (top choice)
    Southern Illinois
    Marquette
    Iowa
    Indiana
    Louisville
    Case Western
    Pittsburgh
    Buffalo
    NYU
    Maryland
    VCU
    Temple
    Tufts
    Boston

    I dont really want to waste money applying to schools like columbia/upenn just because my science GPA is so low.

    Thanks again everybody! And if you see something i should change, please let me know!
