    Hey guys,
    I am planning on doing an externship during Christmas break and I was looking at some omfs programs and realized that some of the program (LSU, Parkland) ask for your class rank. They want you to be in the top 1/3.
    When you apply for the externship at these 2 programs, do you really have to be in the top of your class to get accepted? I did one externship already and they didn't ask me about my rank.
    Any info will help

    No. That's not true. Go ahead and "apply"

    Thanks, that really makes me feel better. To follow up, how soon do I need to apply for the externship at LSU or Parkland for Christmas? I was going to do it in September when I receive my NBME score. Let me know if I should apply early.

    Are there any internship opportunities for first-year dental students?
