I'm from GA too,went to UGA, but got denied from GRU, but got an interview at PENN nextmonth so...yeah GRU is somewhat perplexing.They accept 5% OOS and all in state. They wanna produce Georgia dentists who will stay and pride themselves in being the only dental school in the state of Georgia. They get tremendous amount of support from the state government.
I'm a ga resident. Still haven't heard from them after my interview but I was accepted to Penn and ucsf. So a bit confused.
