Hi everyone,

I just got my result for this august cbse exam. It was my last time giving it and I was hoping to touch a 70.

I ended up with a 68 :(. very disappointed. Is this a competitive score to apply with? I am graduate of a US international dental advance standing DMD program and I already have less chances of getting in :(

I think 68 is competitive. Know a girl who got a 59 and is at Yale for OS. Then again, I also don't know if Yale OS is a big deal program

A 68 is passing. So yes, that is a good score. Depends on what the rest of your app looks like.

What is considered a normal application for an Oral surgery applicant?

I have strong extra-curriculars but my class rank is weak. It's 25/83. I do have a score on the NBDE as well, 91.
May be I should try my luck.

Thank you yuggernaut! Just because everyone here has around 70's on NBME and it will be very hard to compete with the columbia/harvard etc guys who go through 2 years of med school.

Not everyone here has 70s... Those are just the people who want to share or compare their score. I had a lower score than yours with a comparable NBDE.

Thank you vellnueve and Cmistry for the encouragement. I really appreciate it. I going to apply with a more positive attitude now. I hope my class rank doesnt hold me back a lot. Thanks again.
