    Hi,
    You can still apply for the PASS program, you'll just have to hurry it up a bit. Iam not familiar with the MATCH program thou. You can also get info abt the schools at <a href="http://www.aads.jhu.edu/links.html" target="_blank">http://www.aads.jhu.edu/links.html</a>

    If you've got all the requirements (ECE, TOEFL,notorized copies of ur transcripts etc) done, then you can still make it .

    Good luck.

    Hi,
    Iam not very familar with GPR, AEGD or MATCH :rolleyes: :) I'll just pass on what ever 'lil bit I've heard .

    MATCH is a graduate program... Iam told that there's a common application form for MATCH thou ... You can apply to 30 or so schools just by completing one form . It's tough to get into the program without an US degree as the school will not be funded for accepting a non US graduate. So they usually prefer US graduates.
    You might be able to get more info from <a href="http://www.ada.org" target="_blank">www.ada.org</a>
    GPR, AEGD are like internship programs ( so I've heard) which is usually done by students to gain more experience & confidence before they enter private practice ..But it can be done independently , you dont require an US degree. I guess you get paid too . Iam not sure . Please dont take my word for any of this ....Iam just passing on what I heard abt it so far ..
    Also in washington state ( & florida??) ... you can just do GPR or AEGD ( for 2 yrs ) & can get a the licence to practice as a dentist .

    Iam sorry I dont know the details of all these programs..

    PASS is nothing but advance standing program.Its also called IDP,IDS,ISP.

    I know I havent been of much help here....To get detailed info pls contact the schools that offer the program & speak to them personally. Iam sure they'll be more than happy to help you . Ppl here are really helpful & polite so dont hesitate to call up .
