I have been accepted to NYU dental and waitlisted at two other schools. I am thinking that if I don't come off of the waitlist then I will try to defer my acceptance to NYU and reapply this summer again ( I sort of applied late this year). My reason for doing this is that I am unsure about how well NYU prepares its students for passing its boards (with high scores) and how well their students do in placing into top specialties such as (oral and maxillofacial as well as perio). I also would like to one day return back to California and so how well do NYU students do in passing other difficult state boards. Any information that you can share would be much appreciated. I just think that going to a school that will not get me to where I want to be is just not worth my while or my finances. Is that stupid thinking?
