LOL... yeah but the summers here in Georgia aren't too pleasant either. i have been accepted to these schools as well, so i feel the OP....If you don't mind me asking, What made you decide to go to Nova? and are the clinical issues that bad, that it will add an extra year of dental school( Is that a common thing at Nova)?I can tell you what I know about Nova, not sure about your state school. Nova is a realatively new school and we're getting a strong rep. Weather is excellent in the winter, but the summer is brutal, for me- not a fan of the humidity . cost is a factor, I'll be around 300k in debt once everything is said and done. Additionally, they are still trying to iron out issues in the clinic, we have gone to a lottery type system- but still isn't a bonus. No one wants to be a super senior in dental school! It's okay, but not perfect. They are working on, hopefully, having a new clinic in N. Miami.
