so lets say if you only get into Meharry...would you take it or would you rather reapply for next cycle and see what hapns?When I interviewed at UT-Memphis, a few of the D-4 students said that Meharry has horrible board passing rates since several Meharry dental students had to take extra classes at UT to help them pass.
Whether or not YOU pass the boards depends on YOUR effort. You are responsible for learning the necessary information. Why would you postpone your career for another year? That's one less year of your life that you will have to make a dentist's six-figure income. Just my opinion...so lets say if you only get into Meharry...would you take it or would you rather reapply for next cycle and see what hapns?
worth the wait huh?
What if you are a white African (Afrikaner)?Pro: If you're a URM (hispanic/african american/american indian/pacific islander) who feels that your stats may be below average then it is definitely worth applying to.
Con: If you're caucasian/asian/indian then, statistically, you have very little chance of getting in. Also, you should do some research into their retention and board passing percentages.
We all are from Africa originally, one way or another. You are out of luck with Meharry if you are white though.What if you are a white African (Afrikaner)?
Ps. Afrikaners are descendants of mostly Dutch but also many French and German people who travelled to and settled in what is now called South Africa in the 16/17 hundreds...
Well, I have dual citizenship. Does that count for anything? I don't understand what my skin color has to do with it. I still came here with nothing...Still it'd be interesting to see them to unveil the criteria by which they decide whether I am an African-American or not. I have a scientific proof that at least at one point of history ALL ancestors of mine were African, and I do have a US citizenship.
Therefore, I am an African-American. I'd take them to court to prove me wrong if I had time. Just think about potential profits from youtube videos with adsense inlay
