I got into UCLA Grad School or Oral Biology a 2 year program. I have not looked into applying for the 2008 cycle yet. However, I do have all my LORs. I just need to write my personal statement and get my transcripts ready. My career goal is to become an Orthodontist. I am not sure if I should go to UCLA grad school or not. Grad school starts this fall. Should I just take a year off and work, while applying to dental schools? I would be attending UCLA grad school to better my chances of getting into dental school, but that is two more years. I am looking at 9 more years of school. As of now I think I am an average candidate. My GPA: 3.3, DAT:19aa, 20pat. I have a lot of research and volunteering experience. My cousin an ortho told me to just apply to dental school and that grad school is a waste of my time if I want to go to dental school and become an ortho. Someone help and give me advice!!!
