C-grats!!!

I am interested in UPITT, and studying for July NBDE 1.

Can you tell me what was the bench test like, if you had one, and some important facts about interview?

How much time passed since you took your NBDE 1 to getting a mail of acceptance?

Thanks, all the best!

hi buddy,
i had already given my stats in one of the messages above. u can look in to that. but that is not the only criteria. one thing is for sure, u need to have part-2 score and good toefl i suppose.
for the bench exam we are asked to make PFm on #14, class-3 on 7( upper right lateral), class-2 preparation on 21 DO (lower left first premolar), rubbber dam placement, and then do an amalgam filling on already prepared class-II, thats it, we were given 4 hrs. besides these we had an interview which was really cool.
time between step one and admission offer- around 6 1/2 months.
hope i had answered what u wanted, let me know if u need anything else

Thank you very much, VASIREDY!

You are very kind.I intend to do NBDE 1 in july, and NBDE 2 in Sept or Oct this year.After that I would apply bcause, i think deadline is NOV 15.

Do you think my plan is realistic?

One more, and I won`t bother.Which books did you use for learning?Kaplan, decks, papers etc.

Thank you, once again! Hope to see you next year, or sooner...

yes, it is very much realistic. but try to give ur part one by end of june (computer based), and then step2 by say mid-way in sept (compuetr based), this way u have enough time to prepare for both the exams.
u will get the results pretty soon and u will have enough time to prepare SOP and all that stuff.
at the same time u need to have patience and u need to back urselves. it is very easy to get discouraged midway.
all the best
