    MYDDSDREAM--

    I just interviewed there and I have to say that if I am accepted I am going. The facilities are great and the "snow" is excellent. You will see what I mean after the introductory lecture, I am pretty sure the speech is the same each time. Let me know how it goes, when I went they said they had 10 remaining seats open :)

    You must "MASTER" dentistry! "Treat, diagnose, and prevent oral diseases"...."Wax on and wax off.."! "Am I clear?" All those words of wisdom from our dear Mr. Lombard! I too had a great time at Temple! Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!!

    Vikas, are you accepted anywhere yet? I forget! Once I get my acceptance at Temple, I'll give it to you. <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" />

    Also, about your interview at Nova in April, call to see if you can move it up, I really would recommend you to visit Nova. The interview day is not as structured as Temple, but you as an applicant must make the most of it! Besides, to be honest with you, the way how Temple makes its decision on who gets accepted, it takes at least a month for you to find out. It's been over 6 weeks now since I interviewed there and I still haven't heard anything from them yet! When I interviewed on 2-08-02, they had 25 seats left, when I called last week, they still have 25 seats left. That shows you how long they take to make their decisions.

    So most likely, by the time your Nova interview rolls around, you will not have heard from Temple yet! Visit Nova and talk to students, but keep in mind, the interview experience will not be like that one that you've experienced at Temple. Lots of positive changes are being implemented with Nova's curriculum and program and it's only going upwards!!! I was also super excited/pumped coming back from Temple's interview, but after going to a couple of interviews later, I've been pursuaded to go with Nova! Glad to hear that you had a great interview experience at Temple. If you want to discuss Temple and Nova more, feel free to contact via PM or email!

    :cool:

    Yah-E @ Nova --

    I am still going to go to my interview in NOVA, I have still not recieved my letter notifying me but I called and they said it was in the mail but that was a week ago, so I am going to call again to check up on Tuesday. I am excited about Nova, mostly due to the location right now :)

    The speech given by Mr. Lombard made me laugh more than anything else. I have been accepted to BU and paid my deposit but that is my last resort. Does NOVA offer the same opportunity of having 70-100 extractions during your professional schooling? I really want to be prepared as well as I can for the real world and I think Temple offers that. They have more chairs than jr and sr students which is a plus. BU students said that sometimes they had to wait on a chair which is kind of a turn-off.

    I am sure I will love Nova, everyone I talked to said the campus is excellent and the ppl are very nice. It will be a hard choice if I get accepted to both Temple and Nova.

    They told me I got accepted over the phone but I haven't received anything official yet. I interviewed January 21st. If it ever arrives it's all yours I'll be across town at Penn.

    It seems that alot of you are choosing other schools over Temple, I am wondering why? Is there something I missed during my visit? I know it is in a terrible neighborhood but you do not live there and you get masses of patients and there are plenty of chairs...

    What are you choosing other schools, just curious?

    Thanks
