Tips for getting a decent score in organic/ gen chem sections?
Favorite things about D1 year? Hardest things about D1 year?
What loupes did you get? What about the magnification, it's 2.5 enough? Should we get adjustables ones?

I think he means if you can get something like the Orascoptic Eyezoom Mini which can adjust between 2.5 and 3.5 magnification. It seems most people here are recommending 3.5x. So the commenter thought getting something adjustable might help meet the requirement of 2.5x but still give you the flexibility to use higher magnification without getting a whole new set of loupes.I got my loupes from Q-optics, which was the most affordable out of all the other brands, and it works great for me! We were all told to get 2.5x magnification so that's what we all have. Not sure what you mean about adjustable ones though
Yes, we have 4 fewer people in our class.Any people fail out or drop out first year?
I see. The school requires 2.5x, but it is up to you really if you want to get something else since it is your money. No one ever checked the magnification for our loupes.I think he means if you can get something like the Orascoptic Eyezoom Mini which can adjust between 2.5 and 3.5 magnification.

I was highly involved in undergrad and thought that there wouldn't be too many "extra-curriculars" I could be part of. There are tons of different clubs at RSDM and it's very easy to get involved with e-board positions as well. Also thought that as D1s, we would be at the bottom of the totem pole... and although we are, it doesn't feel like it. The upperclassmen have been more than willing to help us out which made our transition so much smoother than I had expected.Did you have any expectations before starting school that turned out differently from what you thought?
The only thing I pay for with my loans are tuitions, fees, and my living situation.. We borrow almost 100K a year and I return as much as I can to my loan providers. From the moment that our aid is dispersed, there is a grace period where you can make a payment and it will go straight to your principal rather than your interest. Definitely take advantage of that! I also make sure not to wait until I graduate to start repaying, since interest accrues while you're still in school. So over the summer, I try to work and allot a portion of my earnings towards my loans.how much debt do you plan on having? did you have an idea about how your going to repay it?
I believe you have some leverage! Apparently, if you get a certain gpa during your masters, you are guaranteed an interview. Not sure about the specifics of it but hopefully someone who did a masters and got accepted will see this and provide some input.Hi! Im currently doing my masters at Rutgers and I'm applying to their dental school. Do I have any leverage in my chances with Rutger's dental school since I'm already affiliated with the school?
It varies. Our class is very collaborative and we all pretty much help each other out and share study guides and notes. The upperclassmen pass down all their resources to us too.. There will always be competitiveness among some people since our school ranks. Socially, friend groups have formed but we're all still very cordial with one another.
