    In an effort to keep this board rolling (and something for me to do while i sit at home doing nothing), I am curious as to what you guys have wrote (or decided to write) on your personal statements.

    To start off, I will describe a lil about what I have wrote.

    I basically described how I had chipped my #9 and was fitted with a crown when I was in junior high. Before the restoration, I had to toil with imprefections with my teeth.....hence teasing from other kids......hence low self-esteem (somewhat BS yet somewhat true). :D Finally when my tooth was restored, no more teasing and all of a sudden more self-esteem! :p Then I went on describing that dentists are cool cuz they give self-esteem via perfect smile (which is true).....yada yada get the idea.

    Hehe....sounds kinda cheesy, but it worked for me!

    I can't remember what I wrote, without having it in front of me.. but I do remember panicking after I had sent it:
    I missed a word, and noticed it about 10 minutes too late.


    Fortunately, they didn't notice it. :) In any case, I talked about how friendly my dentist is and how I admire his work. I talked about wanting to tie in my creativity with some higher order knowledge, and I discussed the fact that I play guitar. :) Actually, I think I spoke a touch too much about the guitar thing, and not enough about dentistry, but no one seemed to mind.

    Does anyone have any comments about Temple University's Dental School and Northwestern University Dental School ? :confused:

    Did you know that Northwestern's Dental school just graduated its last class?
