hey i am an undergrad junior right now, will be applying this May and taking my DATS shortly thereafter. However, I currently have no plans for July and August, and was wondering what dental summer programs are available in the NYC area?? What do most pre-dents do during the summer besides continuing with their shadowing hours? I will be graduating a semester early, so I was wondering what to do with my time then also because I want to show the dental schools that I'm not just sitting on my bum =) Also, what are we suppose to include in the personal statement? Anyone have any guidelines for that? Thanks!
