    Pretty
    A buddy of mine is a student at UW Seattle.. He absolutely loves it. But in my opinion, pick the cheapest.. At the end of 4 years two things are guaranteed.. a dental degree and what you owe.

    Ok this makes a huge difference. I would've done the same :) Ive received an international airline discount through a friend who works for an airline and I was only charged to pay tax so it was a steal. Anyway I envy you lol I think we all do! Must have been nice traveling to different cities across the country though!

    Hi!
    My dentist's son goes to Roseman. His son is a fourth year and he said his son is super disappointed with the curriculum because he's barely had much clinical experience.
    Not sure if that genuinely is true or if my dentist was just being harsh. Just thought I'd share!

    When did you interview? I haven't heard peeps since my interview, not sure if that's a good sign or what. Also were you notified via email or mail?

    Each trip averaged about $200, but I have frequent flier miles and discounts with airlines and hotels so that's why the number is lower-ish.

    I need some advice, trying to choose between nova and Louisville. I loved my interview day at Louisville, everyone was super friendly and the students seemed happy. As far as nova, I didn’t have as good of an interview day but I’m a Florida resident so nova is closed to home and my family. If anyone has any input, I would greatly appreciate it!

    I haven’t heard good things from Nova, from the blogs and from my friend attending. I got admission, at Nova, VCU, Maryland, and MW-IL.. Nova is my last option, not just b/c of what people say, but b/c of the vibe I got there... even a pharm student at the gas station outside gave me a bad review of the school...
    I’m also a Florida resident... but I’m choosing to go outside and use this opportunity to keep growing

    Whatever you choose, best of luck!

    One of the schools I was accepted to makes you pay your deposit in 7 days. I didn't realize this was a thing...? I thought it was supposed to be 30 days at least.

    I’m guessing so they can fill their class quickly. If you don’t mind me asking, how much are they asking? If you don’t pay you lose your spot?

    Strictly going off vibes. Obviously the academia is top notch, however the atmosphere wasn't the best for me personally. By no means am I knocking the school. Great people! Just personally not my style. Plus my wife is a Yankees fan lol. Wouldn't have worked lol.

    I have a friend who interviewed there and didn't like it either. Her impression was that it's a great school to specialize but not the best if you want to practice GD right after school.

    I have the same GPA and really want to go to San Antonio. What did you do on your application that made you stand out? How many volunteer and shadowing hours? I am applying next cycle!

    I shadowed some residents there through connection and have to agree that it’s not the best place to practice GD after school. Most students there wanna go to AEGD because they dont feel ready. Their crown requirement is like 4...

    I didn't get one yet as OOS, so not sure if they forgot to send it or they only sent to AADSAS applicants (assuming you applied thru AADSAS).

    I did apply through AADSAS, since only OOS apply through that I bet they only did it to AADSAS then

    I liked it. Modern, good pt load, and a new dean that’s improving the school (he came from AZ). Also very close to Chicago.

    Very expensive and cold. But overall a good place to spend four years. It just wasn’t my top choice, but I would have considered it if VCU had not granted me admission.

    It's a great school and program. Some of the best clinical experiences in the country and very modern/advanced technology utilized. Obviously, very expensive as well. Would have highly considered if I did not get into OSU (roughly >$200K cheaper)

    It's not over until it's officially over!! Not hearing back yet is better than being rejected already. I'm also waiting on interviews since being waitlisted is kinda a gamble.
