    Hi Everyone!
    I was recently accepted to Rush Universities one year Biotechnology program and Barry Universities one year Biomedical program for Fall of 2012. I want to apply to dental school and will be a re-applicant probably next cycle. Which school is better as far as me reaching my goal of eventually getting into dental school? Any thoughts/feedback? Please let me know. Thanks

        I'd say if your ultimate goal is dentistry and you feel convinced you won't waver from that, go with the biomed program. It seems more geared toward that eventual goal with useful stuff on neuroanatomy, head and neck anat, general dentistry, and biochemistry. If you're not so sure about dentistry and enjoy research, go with the biotech program. If you're still unsure after this assessment, price is a viable reason to pick one over the other since they both sound like good programs. After all, dental school is going to cost plenty without hefty additional loans packed on.
