I will be graduating in the fall of 2001 with a BS in biology and plan to take the DAT in the spring of 2001. I am very strong in my decision to apply to dental school and have completely dedicated my life to getting in....researching as much as possible and maintaining a good GPA. I am, however, really nervous about the prospects of applying and then not getting accepted. Do you have any advice for a young pup? Also UIC is my first choice (I plan to remain a resident of Chicago) and was wondering if anyone had heard about the competiveness of their program? Thanks much!
