    does anyone know what shuld be the approximate length of the personal statement for university of columbia.
    the application form mentions that the personal statement shuld be about 250 words... i think thats too short.
    however the website mentions 1-2 page personal statement which sounds good.
    i am not sure which ones right...
    does anyone have any idea?

    I have checked a lot of universities on the East Coast myself by meeting the doctors and the actual students who are accepted at Columbia and a lot other universities too. This was through my dentist that I work with who was an alumni and we both found out that for the last couple of years they have been accepting only 1-3 international dentists per year. These are usually if you have a MDS from your home country with a lot of experience or similar backgrounds. I would sincerely suggest you to not apply there as its a waste of $100 application fee. This is a way for them to make easy money as its $100 per student into 1000 students i.e. 100,000. If you dont believe me, you can certainly call them directly at http://dental.columbia.edu/education/advanced_stan.htm
    and ask them "Approx how many international students actually get accepted at the university"?
    I hope this helps to most of the people who read this message before wasting their money on theri applications.

    hi,

    I am sorry but I have a different opinion on this as I got into columbia last year . Though I know the seats are very less Generally 1-3 or 1-4 but its not necessary that u require MDS . Both of us who got selected neither had any MDS nor any MS degree . The only thing to restrict yourself is your part-1 score. If its below 91-92 your chance fades away for an interview call. The best part of columbia is they call only 8-10 people for the interview and give the results in 3-5 days so no waste of time and money.

    So I suggest high scorers do apply for columbia.

    hi
    i am new to this forum and i am very very interested in getting into columbia university for advanced placement. whoever i asked had a negative answer but reading ur posts today really boosted my spirits.
    my nbde score part 1 is 91
    my toefl score is 287(cbt)
    my gpa is 4.0
    as soon as i completed internship in my country, i came to new york which was 7 mths back. i was since preparing for the nbde. i am probably going to repeat my nbde part1 again as i believe the average score of people admitted last yr was 93...however i had done my best the first time ,dunno if i can make it better this time but i will definitely put in more efforts ... i was wondering if u could tell me if i stand a chance if i apply with this score or its best if i repeat the exam,and i heard abt the bench exam too so could u enlighten me abt that too...thanks in advance
