    My dad is from Pittsburgh and I have always heard really great things about the PITT dental school. My aunt even gets her dental work done there. But congrats for getting in....thats a feat within itself.

    After this week's series with the Yankees, Pittsburgh might deserve a special place in my heart.

    Congrats! too bad you got accepted so late, you missed all the fun at pre-orientation. you didn't miss much important tho...just friendship stuff..lol.
    but seriously, i love pitt. it's all year round, so less credit hours/semester=lots easier on the stress lvls than a school that packs on the classes. It is VERY managable. so, dont worry about school...just worry about getting a place to live and stuff. are you looking yet? married, single? pm me if you want more info

    I'm not a Pitt student, but I shadowed at Pitt dental school a few years ago for a day, and two of the d-students there said that it wasn't too bad. (Obviously different people are going to have different opinions. I would think d-school would be hard!) They both went to Carnegie Mellon for undergrad, if that helps.

    Pitt is one of my top choices... a lot of my area's dentists went there and loved it! Have fun at Pitt and congrats!

    Pitt is a great school man. i have 3 friends there and they love it. they were the first school to accept me & i deposited ("donated") there, but later interviewed at VCU and decided it was a better fit for me.
    but yes, 2 of my buddies are going into their 3rd year at Pitt and they love it. one of them is 2nd in his class, planning on going into oral surgery. it's a really good school, congrats!

    PM replied, tho I forgot to discuss competition at Pitt: I'm sure it depends on the class and the individuals in that class. Pitt has a ranking system, so students know roughly where they stand within the class. I'm sure that could work to foster competition or in some cases eliminate it, just depends on the people.

    good luck!
