    I already got one acceptance at NYU, but I haven't gone to any of my interviews yet. I have received four interviews so far (Tufts, Pittsburgh, Temple, UDM).

    Is it worth it to go to all of these interviews? I don't want to regret choosing the wrong dental school, but I clearly don't have the financial resources to go to all of them (Since I am from Canada). The tuition from these schools are pretty much very similar for international student. Also, for some of these schools, is it harder for international student to get in (i.e. they only take a couple of international students and you need to have much higher stats to get in) ?

    I don't know much about the reputation of these schools. Out of these schools, which ones do you think I should go and not go?

    I am definitely going to tufts and Pitts. Temple, I am not sure, because they started interviewing people so early and send out so many acceptances already.

    How bout University of Detroit Mercy? Is that a good school? I never heard anything about them?

    I would go to the Tufts' interview. They are a solid school and you can check from other threads that they have a strong reputation. I have over 10 friends at Tufts, and every single one loves the school except for tuition. Just my 2 cents, good luck to you in your dental endeavors...
