Congratts, my man! Last year, we got thru the boredom of the Baylor interview info session together, we got thru the waiting together, we got thru the rejection together... but this year, you and I got thru December 1st with big, bright, dentist-approved smiles on our faces! Congratulations, Andrew... you're in!

Hockeydentist - you don't know how happy I am for you!!! Seriously! You just made my night. I admire your stamina and determination - nothings harder than being given a chance. When you come to Philly, look me up and I promise to buy you a round of drinks (if you do drink that is, if not, then your next bottled water or V8 is on me). - Sprgrover :clap:

You are one step closer but by no means "going to be a dentist"

Lots can happen in the next four years. Start thinking on a micro level bec a lot of students get screwed thinking macro

Many must have congratulated you. But I want to add mine to the list. I'm very glad you made it through. I still remember you were even thinking about backing out. Hardwork is always paid off. Congrats again.

HD: I haven't followed up on your posts but from reading everyone's response in this thread, it appears that you really persevered through this whole process. I bet that internal feeling is unbeatable.

It is especially worthwhile when you work towards something and getting it. I know I worked for years in post-bac to get into dental school, and when I got in, it was this peace, joy, satisfaction, that still continues to this day. It's been 8 weeks since dental school started for me, and every day, I feel so priveleged, and proud of where I'm at, no matter how much work I have to do, how negative I may feel, or how tired I am. It's a sense of accomplishment that stays for months, if not years to come.

Perhaps, HD, you may feel the same way as well, and that's why I talked so much about myself.
Congratulations doesn't seem to capture the feeling.

HD: It be nice to see a thread where you post your journey. Tell us the perseverance, the struggles, doubts, confidence that you had to go through. Would be nice to see encouraging stories on SDN.

CONGRATZ!! You are a man of admiration. A person like you with your unwavering dedication to dentistry definitely deserve a seat in a dental school. I am glad Temple made a good choice.

Good luck,

Congrats HD, I've been following some of your posts, and it's awesome that you got in. I remember a post by you, saying that if you don't get in this cycle you will move on. So, it was nice to see that you got in. I'm in a similar predicament, although this is my second cycle. Hopefully I will get in somewhere, although I haven't heard the good news just yet! :oops:
