i in no way want to offend anybody with this, but i think that there is a trend of reverse discrimination in dental school admissions. i am a michigan resident, have above average grades/scores, and have family connections to the umich dental school. all of this added up should result in me being accepted to their school, but i just found out that i have been put on the alternate list. i know that the dean of admission has been very passionate about diversifying the school, to the point that being a white male is a penalty. is this fair? now i have to spend over twice the money to go to a private school, just because i am a white male i think. i am sure that the people who have been accepted to michigan are as smart as they come, so no offense to anyone who is attending, or was accepted.
