Just set it up now.. We had one up Dec 1 lolDr. Killip called me yesterday morning. I am in-state and went to school at Missouri Western State University. I actually just got home from dropping off my deposit! Congrats to everyone. What do you guys think about starting a facebook group? The classes of 2012, 2013, and 2014 all have them.
So, my GPA was a 3.71 overall and my sGPA was a 3.77. I went to Missouri Western State University for undergrad and graduated in May 2010 with a Biology degree. My DAT scores were on the low side, but I felt I could make up for that with all of the research I was involved with. I had AA18, TS 18, PAT 17. I took the DAT when I was burnt out from a tough semester and didn't have Organic II yet. These scores are very mediocre and if I wouldn't have gotten in this cycle, I would have re-taken in a heartbeat. I had over 350 hours volunteering and about the same for shadowing. I shadowed at 8 offices (perio, ortho, oral surgery, endo, and 4 general practitioners). I hope this helps. Just show the admissions people at the school that you want to be at UMKC for your dental education. I made it to the school to shadow and talk as often as I could. Richie Bigham and Sarah Major are amazing at their job and will help you with any questions/concerns you may have. G'luck! PM me if you have any more questions.First of all, congrats on those who were accepted. For those of us who are applying in future years, what were your gpa, science gpa, dat scores, observation hours, and community service hours, and where you got your under-grad work done at if anyone doesn't mind sharing!
This is the closest thing we have. http://www.skisnowcreek.com/Got the call from Richie today. I have been accepted into Creighton and Colorado also; but it seems as though the awesome snowboarding and outdoor environment in Colorado is influencing my decision. Does anyone know about outdoor/snowboarding opportunities near UMKC? Oh...and CONGRATS to everyone who will be future dentists!!!
