    The OP is pre-dent so I don't know if that helps.

    Check out some dental schools and see if they have SMPs. Two off the top of my head is Tufts and Midwestern Arizona (the one I am currently at).

    yea, ive looked at the site before, but there are too many options that are non premed/predental...maybe one day i'll just have to sit down and go through them all.

    thanks for the tip about tufts and midwestern. at least that gives me a couple of more options.

    do you happen to know when the deadline to apply is?

    For Midwestern AZ? It's fairly late; I applied in mid March and got in about mid April. There is a quick phone interview along with it.

    I suggest applying early though, like Jan or Feb, because they do fill up.

    MWU has two options: the 2 year MBS and the 1 year MA. This is the first year with the MA program, which I am in, and it offers a conditional interview for all MA people. This is for all of their programs (OPT, med, dental, pharm, etc.), so it's a nice thing to have, but you must complete at least 2 quarters and have a certain set of grades/DAT/MCAT, etc.

    If you want to know more, I plan to make a MWU SMP thread with info and maybe get some current students in there as well. I was fairly active on the last thread so there's a lot I can tell you and maybe others who are interested.

    Since you live in Florida, check out Barry University and Nova Southeastern, both of which have SMPs.
