Ok guy and girls, so what are all the applicants looking at next year( this is for 2008)? Do you think its going to be harder or easier? Do you think there are going to be more applicants or less(some people might get discouraged)? What do you think is going to be the norm DAT scores (20, 21, 22)? Do you think dental schools are more sympathetic to applicants reapplying?

Is becoming a dentist and going through all this bull**** worth it? Do you think there is going to be a demand for dentists in about 5, 10 years?

All good questions I really want to know the answers to. Also probably some other people to. Do you think talking to people on the admissions committee is a good idea about what they didn't like about your application?

Personally speaking, i have a 3.3 overall GPA, 3.4 science GPA, applied late October, 17 in Bio, 18 in GChem, 19 in OChem, 19 PAT, 18 in Reading Comp, 19 in QR. Got 1 interview at Stony Brook in late January but no answer from them or any other school. I applied to Stony, NYU, UMDNJ, BUffalo, UPenn, and Temple. Still haven't heard anything, no acceptance, no rejections, NOTHING!!! So i lost hope but am looking forward to applying this year for 2008. Goodluck to everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!

first thing....dentists will always be in demand...even with the technological advances someone will have to administer the procedures who is a dentist...talking to the acom cant hurt so why not...and being a dentist will be extremely rewarding...not only will u get to help people but will be able to live a lifestyle u might not even know existed...im excited to goto school and its definately going to be tough...but in the end hard work pays off and ull get the dough to show for it.
