Hi, I got waitisted in NYU which i thought was easier to get into and was my last hope. The letter states that i have to wait untill a space is available or I have to reapply for next year. This is very dissappointing and its like a punishment to me. I really dont know what to do. I am very confused :confused: whether to retake my part1 or go for part2 now? I posted another thread also part1 or part2 but nobody is helping. Guys please help. I should make my decision real quick in order to take the exam cuz i dint startstudying yet. My part 1 is 87. It dint get me anywhere. I am really depressed :( and embarrassed :oops: I have two options either to retake part1 or to take part2. Please suggest which one is best for me. :eek:

Well if I were you then I would have retaken part 1. It will be a lot easier for you or anyone else to retake it, since you have already been thru the prep and all. There are many examples, and also on SDN, people have taken it and got real good marks.
Just be relaxed and concentrate on part 1. You will do real good this time.

Hope it helps.

Someone with stas of part1 87 and part2 86 was accepted in UPenn for 2005 session. At the sametime someone with part1 95 was rejected by UPenn for the same session! It's a strange world of DDS advanced standing. I don't think no one is in a position to advice correctly. But the safer bet would be to move heaven and earth, study like hell and retake part1. And if possible and if you feel confident and comfortable then take part2, look at the score and then assess. Most likely you have to retake part1 anyway. But you have your complete part1and 2 scores. I am following the second route. Taking part2 in April and then assess. The advice came from couple Faculty of different dental schools.

Hi there, what about your GPA and your Toefl exam, how much did you score in those?? Becasuse if your GPA is low you must try to score more than 90 to get into school.

86/273/3.79; It's in every relevant thread. What's your TOEFL score and GPA? Since you haven't started preparing for part2 your choice is very clear. Retake part1 if you want to get in DDS advanced standing program. your Part1 score is good enough for Grad programs (except possibly Ortho programs...one needs 90+). That is the reason why I am taking part2, as I might go for Grad program instead of DDS.

Hi rahmed, my toefl 250 and gpa 3.95. when i retook part1 I was working part time and studied for 2&1/2 months. I did decks and old exams only. I dont have kaplan. So if I do take part1 I shd do something new like kaplan otherwise the range is not gonna change. Is it good to go for Grad programs. Cuz my main goal is to get the licence to practice. Can we practice still after the grad prog or we have to go for dds again after that?

Grad programs will get you a job in Faculty. And there is a good possibility you will be able to do your DDS as a member of Faculty at a lower cost. Since there is a huge demand in certain teaching areas at this moment, one stands a good chance of getting a job.

On the otherhand if your aim is to pursue pure dental practice then you should have single-minded determination to get into an Advanced Standing program. For that a higher score in part 1 is important. In your second attempt you have improved your score. There is every indication you will improve it further. My only advice is to broaden your knowledge by consulting some Text books, like Chaurasia/Snail's Anatomy, Wheeler's Dental Anatomy etc. Kaplan online question bank is very useful. If you have online access then get it soon. It costs $199 for 3 months or $99 for one month.

You should target to take exam after 3 months prep. This is my opinion. Please follow your instinct.

hey guys,
my question is that if they have started putting people on the waitlist..does that mean that all the seats have been filled already? i havent' even gotten an interview call yet so i guess my luck has run out...or perhaps they are saving some seats for the interviewees for march and april...because i called and they told me that they are interviewing till the end of april...i'm confused,, they wouldn't call more people for interviewing if they had 0 seats left would they???

There are 5 threads currently on 'NYU and Future Plan' or similar topic. I think they shoulhd be tied together. I think we all should follow this thread and post our views regarding NYU, Waitlist and future plan.

Hi shine. Count me in the waiting list with you. My advice is since you have a good GPA and your part 1 score is good then, take part 2 because it would be a big plus for you,especaily on your application. Also , when any university sees that you have completed both of the national board exams then your capable of passing there exams and any other exams . Wish you the very best on your decision ....

I just got accepted to NYU and I was on Waitlist. Wow its such big relief. I interviewed on Feb 24th, and was put on wait list. Just got snail mail that I have been moved from waitlist to accepted student. Letter was mailed on March 25th.

My scores are
89, 3.41(ECE), 261.

Did any one else get the same letter. Good luck to everyone else.

Hi Robert,

Congratulations!! Thats really a wonderful news. I also have my inteview on March 31st. I am preparing for the interview. I will appiciate your help in this regard.

The most difficult question to answer for me is my weakness. I am reading the postings from various members. And most of them have been asked this question.

I need your Suggestion as to how to answer this question? If you dont mind can you share with me how did you handle this question?

I mean is there any specific weakness that we can share with them......?

An early reply is highly appriciated.

Thanks & regards

Hi all the wailist and used-to-be wailist people,
Did all of you notice that you received the wailist letters a week later than the people in your batch who received the acceptance letters?
Well, right now I'm so anxious about my status as many people in my batch did got their acceptance many days ago and I do not get anything as yet. Does that mean it's over? Please somebody tell me.
Thanks for all the replies.

Hey Gujjudent,
I just reached Chennai. My parents got the letter 2 days back [UPS Courier]. If you haven't heard from them yet, take it positively. I must have acted way too dumb to get waitlisted so FAST. The letter was dated 28'th. I guess UPS is getting more and more efficient [Or I was dumped right after my interview :p}

Hi all,
Did NYU ever send the rejection letter to anyone after the interview? Or they just place everyone who are not accepted on the waitlist? I'm really concerned about this. If anyone know anything about this matter, please answer. Thanks.
