I have a quick question about the UF supplemental app. I was filling it out and noticed online that theres an "optional" form to have dentists you shadowed sign.

How many of you actually did this? Is it mandatory? I mean I know it says optional but will not doing it be bad? I already listed the dentists I shadowed on aadsas.

The thing is, I shadowed 2 dentists a while ago, and I was set to shadow 3 others this summer. I submitted the aadsas app with hours in it a couple of days before I actually shadowed the 3 other dentists.

I put approximate hours down figuring an 8 hour work day. Of course with my luck 2 of the 3 dentists I shadowed after submitting aadsas I actually shadowed less hours than I put on aadsas.

One of the dentists had 3 cancellations in his afternoon schedule and was about to go on lunch so he said it was pointless for me to stay since he was basically doing paper work for the rest of the day.

The other one I followed on a friday and he only works until 12 on fridays and I didnt know that.

I dont want to submit papers showing different amount of hours from aadsas you know what I mean?

Will not submitting this form basically negate what I put in aadsas because theres no "proof"?

I put 16 more hours on my AADSAS application than what my dentist put on the UF form. I don't think it should be a big deal.
