Hello everyone,

I am planning to apply this upcoming cycle. Please help me finalize the list of schools I should apply to. I am also an international student.
These are my stats: [oGPA 3.835] [sGPA ~3.75] [DAT: AA 23, TS 21, PAT 23].
I also don't have any experience in research.

This is the list of schools I have so far. Is there any I should add or take out?
  1. Western University of Health Sciences College of Dental Medicine
  2. Loma Linda University School of Dentistry
  3. Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of University of Southern California
  4. Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine
  5. Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine-Illinois
  6. University of Maryland School of Dentistry
  7. Tufts University School of Dental Medicine
  8. Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine
  9. University of Michigan School of Dentistry
  10. University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry
  11. Columbia University College of Dental Medicine
  12. Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine
  13. University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine
[Debating]
- Columbia University: I know this is an ivy league school so with my stats and with no research experience, I was thinking of taking it out of my list.
-University of Pacific: I thought of adding this program, but I heard it's very hard to get in.

Thank you in advance!!

First and foremost, I would apply to all international friendly programs. Since these will be your best shot. Other than that, your stats are in line with those accepted to columbia and pacific. You don’t have to limit yourself. Previous research is a plus but not necessary.

U of P is a 3-year program. It's tough to get in but it's also really tough to complete (condense 4 years into 3). Academic rigor and maturity are very important.
