    I am a US citizen studying dentistry in the philippines and am graduating in october 2014. My plan is to practice in CALIFORNIA. I am aware that i must complete another 2 years of school before i am eligible to take the licensure exam. I am also aware that colleges accept only a handful of international graduates (less than 30) each year to enter the 2 year program.

    Now, being completely straight forward, my grades during college were average. I am even delayed a year because of failed classes.

    This brings me to my questions:

    1. How competitive is it to actually get into a program?
    2. Are there waiting lists for these programs?
    3. Are admissions based more on nbde scores or your past grades?

    I would appreciate any information at all, or even anyone with a similar predicament, just to shed light on the situation.
