I'm excited, only one week away!

Any other SDNers going?

Attire = dress shirt and slacks?

Rumor has it Armorshell will be a "row instructor"... so bring your cameras.

Rumor? What rumor, you can bet I'm going to be a row instructor, as well as lecturing you young whippersnappers on how to do a posterior composite.

I'll be there and am excited as well. I'd say yes to dress shirt and slacks, maybe a tie as well.

Went to Pride Day today, and all I can say is WOW. It was a very well organized, informative, and motivaitional presentation of the UOP program.

Now, if I can just get in...

As far as dress code, my opinion would be that this is a pre-clinical simulation, and if you're going to role play the part of the student you may as well go for our dress as well, which would mean shirt/tie/slacks. I would necessarily go so far as a suit jacket though.

You'll be wearing gowns that pretty much cover up all your clothing. Definitely for guys, shirt and tie is a good idea...a suit jacket would need to be taken off during your time in the sim lab, so you might as well not wear one.

Girls..."Women must wear either a skirt or slacks and blouse or a dress. Hosiery must be worn with skirts and dresses, and socks or hosiery must be worn with slacks. Dress shoes/dress boots must be worn. Trousers/slacks must reach the ankle. Skirts and dresses must approximate the knees in length or fall below them. Culottes which conform to the skirt/dress length standard are acceptable."

-from out code of professional attire handouts.

Yea I went last year too, jeans and tees not a good idea. I think too dressy prob not comfy since you will be working. But then again, the dean and other important people will be there so you do want to look snazzy!:thumbup:

Go to the UOP website -> current news -> School of Dentistry events

It is open to anyone willing to pay the registration fee.

Unfortunately the course is full this year. Look for it next year. There is a 1 week window to register and it is limited to 60 students. Attendees are picked by lottery from all of the registrants. Good luck.

I called last year to register only seconds after the window opened and all I got was a message saying they were extremely busy and to hang up and try again. I felt like I was trying to win concert tickets from a radio station! After 30 min I gave up. Called back in an hour or two later, finally got through, but they were already full.

My saving grace: I had mailed in a registration form and check 2 weeks earlier to get there before the window opened.

So if you want in next year, keep an eye out for the dates and register immediately!

Well, I don't know about last year, but this year, they have this lottery system. It doesn't matter if you turn it in the first day or not. It is all based on your luck.

That makes sense. There were probably many other people in my situation, and many more angry ones who we left out.

We just got our assigned pre-dents. Mine are from UCLA and San Jose State. Anybody from the board? Anyone want me to look up their assigned instructor?

It looks like dress is business casual. I just received the following email:

Hi,

The attire for the course is business casual. Jeans are fine as long as they are in good condition. We want you to be comfortable. No sweats, flip flops, shorts, etc.

We will provide you with a booklet that will include all the lectures. This is yours to keep. You can write notes in here during the lectures. If not, I do suggest you bring a notepad and pen.

I will see you this Saturday at 8am. Registration is on the 5th floor. If you forget, there will be signs posted near the elevators.

Thank you,
Janelle Victorio

See you all this weekend.

Enjoy,

Brian
