    I just wanted to get an idea of how competitive dental is in terms of total number of applicants per year vs. the total number of available first-year seats.

  3. Here are the official stats from the ADEA.


    ----------------------------------------------

    from ADEA -- e-mailed to the national health professions advisors
    list-serv:


    >We have not yet completed the year 2000 entering class applicant
    analysis;
    >but here is what we have for the 1999 entering class.
    >
    >number of applicants: 9010
    >number of enrollees: 4209
    >% of applicants enrolled: 46.7
    >average science GPA of enrollees: 3.26
    >average total GPA of enrollees: 3.35
    >DAT academic average of enrollees: 18.1
    >DAT perceptual ability of enrollees: 17.1
    >DAT total science of enrollees: 17.9
    >
    >While the number of applicants has declined over 8 percent between
    1997 and
    >1999 (and it is estimated that there was a further 10 percent decline
    in
    >2000), there has been no decline in average GPA and DAT scores. There
    also
    >has been no decline in the number of first-time dental school
    enrollees.
