What is the average acceptable NBDE 1 score and class rank for most GPR programs?

Each program differs.

We require passing scores on National Boards, and passing in dental school.
We then compare the grades with the letters of recommendations and select the best to interview.

Acceptance is often based on the interview and what else the person has done - i.e. extracurriculat work/research/volunteerism/hardships

Many programs look at grades only.

We try to blend our program from different schools and try to get 10 residents who can function as a team.

This year we have residents from 6 universities, next year its 4... each year is different.

Do scores in the low 80 range on part 1 signal a red flag for most GPR directors even if every other part of the application is strong? thank you.

Honestly, some programs will be glad to have warm bodies in the seats. MANY GPR/AEGD programs go unfilled each year (about 500 open spots this year, as I recall).

Some programs are very competitive. Others aren't at all.

This trend in unfilled spots has been around for some time?

How many GPR institutes do the dental graduates usually apply in every year?

When is the best time to apply?
