    I was accepted before I finished my M.S. (which I do in a week) but I am supposed to finish it before I start d-school in august.

    I think most schools will want you to finish your M.S., meaning if you get accepted while working on your M.S., they will require that you finish it before you matriculate into D-school. I wouldn't count on just dropping out once you get accepted, as I doubt schools would like that...

    It depends on your M.S. My program is strictly coursework based non-thesis M.S., meaning I take X number of classes with B- or higher and get my degree. But there are so many different M.S. programs out there its best to consult your academic advisor.

    b) above 3.50
    c) above 3.30
    d) above 3.00

    etc. Thank you all.

    This isn't exactly the best way to tell whether or not you should do a thesis or not. You'd need to look at the number of acceptances out of the number of people who applied... unfortunately, the way the polls work, you can't really do that...

    What if 5/6 master's non-thesis people were accepted while 9/25 master's thesis people were accepted? That would say a non-thesis masters is better.... on the other hand, they may have the same acceptance rate... This poll is really just telling you what kind of master's people decided to pursue, not which kind the schools seem to prefer... don't all go off and switch your non-thesis to a thesis! haha (4.0 gpa in a non-thesis)

    Sephisabin: Thank you for the inputs. Like you said, this post isn't about which type of master is better, I'm simply just want to see what kind of master's people decided to pursue dentistry.
