Hello All, I'm kinda confused on how many schools I should apply to. I was telling on of my pre-dent friends that I am going to apply to about 20 schools, but he told me that would be a bad idea since then the adcom would think that you are desperate to get into dental school. Well everyone is desperate to get into dental school. He said that it's good to apply to max of 7 schools. So by this way it looks like you gave some thought in deciding where to apply. I was wondering how many schools are applying to. Also, do the adcom's of each school you apply to know where else you applied to? Any help would be appreciated from those who are applying and those who have completed the process and have gotten in. Please let me know.
