    According to the 2008 ADEA guide to dental schools (for students entering in '09), schools such as Colorado seem to only tailor to colorado residents. Why not add a few more private schools such as NYU or Tufts? The more you apply to, the more possibilites, don't limit yourself. ;)

    I think 10 is a good number. Don't be afraid to apply to as many as 15. Nowadays people apply to a lot more schools than before. Make sure you get 20s in the DAT. You really are going be counting on a very strong showing on the DAT. Add BU, Tufts, Detroit-Mercy, SUNY-Buffalo (look at their latest stat on their web page 60% out of state!), NYU (I know it is pricey but you really don't have the stats to be in a position to avoid schools even with strong DAT scores), Pittsburgh, and Temple. As to state schools, I am going to defer to others who can post on those you mentioned.

    You don't have to apply there. I was just suggesting.

    You might apply to Indiana, they take a lot of out-of-state. The only problem is the increased number of prereqs compared to some other schools.

    i would definitely put VCU on your list. great school and they take around 30% out of state. I also think a lot of state schools have really active out of state waitlists because people will accept at their own state school or private and turn down the out of state offers.
