Yup, this is correct. The only dental school in Georgia is at Augusta University and is called the Dental College of Georgia (DCG for short).

TIL they’re different
Haha yeah. Here are some fun facts for you.
1. DCG is located on the border line of South Carolina and Georgia.
2. There are DCG students who live in SC and cross a bridge and boom - they are at the dental school.
3. It's quite cheaper for SC state residents to go to DCG than their own state school of MUSC.
4. They get a day off of school for the start of the Masters golf tournament (It starts in Augusta every year).
5. Epstein didn't .....ehhhhhh you know the rest.

Anyway, I have a question, has anyone written a letter of interest to a school before receiving an interview? Did it affect whether you got an interview?

Acceptance #2- Midwestern AZ- Notified in person at the end of my interview this afternoon.
Have you decided which school you are going to attend? I saw you were also accepted to UW, so I’m curious what you think of the UW. I’m having a difficult time deciding whether or not I want to accept the offer I received from the UW.

Why accept the offer if Iowa was your top choice? Give that spot up for someone else. This profession is about being unselfish if you accept that offer your just wasting money and wasting other people’s time. Please be a good person that’s all I ask! :)

I haven’t accepted any offers yet, I have until January to do that. I’m definitely leaning towards Iowa, I really liked it. Tuition is pretty similar, but being from the Seattle area I would be closer to family. Also the weather is far milder in Seattle than it is in Iowa but definitely leaning towards Iowa, my plan was always to only put down one deposit but I have a little bit of time to decide.

edit: it’s also just kind of scary to commit to moving to a state where you know no one and are pretty unfamiliar with. I wrote out a pros and cons list of Iowa vs UW and it was pretty obvious I should go to Iowa, it’s just that taking that first step is frightening.

Relax bro, let him make his decision.
I was relaxed and no one told you to come into this :rofl: But I just wanted to make sure he was making only one deposit because it truly would be a waste of time and money on both ends. Just watching out for people as they make decisions. All in all, Apl101 you should take that leap. Iowa is amazing and you will love it. Look forward to becoming your classmate!

Not yet, still kinda in shock from yesterday honestly, so I haven't even had time to weigh out all the pros and cons of each. Both great schools and felt like a great fit for me so it will be a tough choice. Deadline for my deposits are both in the first two weeks of Jan. I'll post in the " will be attending ___ and turning down ___ " thread once I decide.

When does UCLA stop sending out interview invites?
We traditionally interview until March, but last year, there were very few post-Dec interview dates, probably just 1 (since only one person in the 2023 class said they interviewed post-Dec). Not sure how it'll be this year -- will probably have to wait until the deposit deadline to see how full the class is to decide whether or not they'll interview people.

Are you attending UW mainly because of the price difference?
No, in my research both schools were pretty close in overall COA for 4 years. Also I’m planning on military HPSP, so it was more a location decision for my wife and I.

wow...
things were really different back in the Acceptance/Rejection thread of 2014-2015...
around Jan. 5 of 2015, that thread already hit 85 pages....
lol ppl were so vocal back then..
I've seen statistics from 2 separate schools from the most recent application cycle that have shown applications trending downwards. This is just a personal theory but I think the med-dental pendulum has been swinging back in favor of med recently with the rise in dental tuition and the rise in med salaries and more humane (still crazy) training for residents.

No surprise to be honest. Medical school and its professions as of right now are basically going through its golden ages with much better result in terms of debt, pay, and honestly, hours worked (EM doctors have arguably bad hours but hospitals are seeing this and are being proactive in changing their working hours) and this is all due to the government keeping the residency spot fixed.
With schools that have both dental and med schools-- compare their tuition prices and you will see just how absurd the differences are.

Is it bad to feel as though the 1980s dental school "crash" will soon happen again?
