Congrats to DentalMO....UMKC too. That's awesome. Got my acceptance to USC while flying over the Florida coast. Nothing like being cramped next to complete strangers and finding out a decision that will forever change your life.

At the interview, they said that ~ 30-40 ppl will receive acceptances today. I dunno how accurate that number is tho. And yes the next round of acceptances will be in Feb.

I got the acceptance around noon on 12/1! This is definitely a great school and the student atmosphere here was unlike any other I've seen thus far. The price tag for me compared to my state school is just overwhelming... another seat will be opening up here for those of you who are waiting for USC!!! ...again, great school!

I got into both schools as well as a few others including UF (which is in state tuition for me). Truthfully, I wasnt even considering USC or NYU because they are both extremely expensive, however, I received a $30,000 a year scholarship from NYU, so now I'll probably be going there.

I went to USC for undergrad and worked at the dental school. I would interact with many of the dental students and they all seemed to love the school. They even had good stuff to say about pbl. People were very friendly and the atmosphere was pretty laid back.

The area surrounding the school may not be that nice but it's only a 15 min drive from downtown, ktown, lil tokyo, west la, and hollywood. Also, the dental school is on the main campus, which means you have easy access to the libraries, cafeteria, gym (which is directly across from the dental school!), etc.

If you have anymore questions, feel free to pm me.

Hey!

Congrats to all who got in!

I am a first year student at USC and I absolutely love it!

I didn’t get into NYU, but I am from NY, and have lots of friends who went there. I found people at NYU to be super snobs and not very friendly. In addition their professors (wouldn’t speak for everyone though) are not very accommodating (a friend of mine had literally take a final exam lying on his stomach in the lecture hall, as he was after a surgery and he could not seat. The professor refused to give him an extension and told him that he needs to take it with everyone if he wants to pass the class. And btw, he would just step over him, as he was walking back and forth!!!). During second year—you will have ~300ppl, once international dentists will join. I personally have no idea what can you learn when you have so many people…

At USC- lots of you might be scared about PBL way of learning. And to be honest- it is not my favorite part either. I do think that PBL would’ve been great during 2nd year, once we have a strong science foundation. There are lots of positive changes happening here (I am a part of curriculum committee also, so I am well aware of the changes). Our year (2014) has PBL 2 times/week, instead of 3 as was before. In addition, we start having some lectures. Overall, you might not like PBL, but it does give you lots of flexibility as far as the schedule is concerned, therefore making your life in dental school less stressful. With new changes in place(we were the first year to experience it) you will start drilling from day one of school (and I mean it literally). We are finishing the amalgam course and staring the composite. Lots of students in other schools don’t even see the drill until the end of the first year. Therefore clinically you will be very strong. In addition, there are lots of opportunities within school to observe and work with the best in the field (just to name a few--Dr. Nowzari, who is the head of perio residency, Dr. Malamed- you can try and get into his IV team at the end of second year, therefore you will undergo super extensive training in IV sedation and would be IV certified upon graduation. I am sure not that many schools offer such opportunities).

Last but not list, I absolutely love people at this school! Everyone is super friendly (including upper classmates) and always willing to help (from upperclassmates to residents). I think it’s the best school to have school-live balance.

Overall, every school has pros and cons. You will always come across something that will bother you. Remember that this is my subjective opinion. Yeah, there are moments that frustrate me and I wish the curriculum/professor/etc were different, but this will be at any school you go to…To me it's the people that make all the difference :)

Hope this would help you!

Fight on!!!

Hope to see you in August!!!
