    I currently have my dental school applications in. I'm wondering when most dental schools usually start. I'm planning to compete in an Ironman next summer. There is one Boulder, CO that I'd like to do but it is Aug 7th. I'd hate to drop $700 on a race and then not be able to show up. I know most dental schools usually start in August sometime but I don't know where to find dates or if they even publish them.

    Look up the academic calendars for each school and you should be able to either get an exact answer or an estimation.

    Actually I've heard of schools that start as early as June, and my school starts late September, so there is a very wide range.

    Thank you for the responses. It looks like I'll just have to do Ironman Texas to be on the safe side. It is May 15. That way there is no possible conflicts with school starting.

    Ironman Texas is on the 14th, not 15th. I'll be right there in the water with you.

    Over here at VCU we just finished our second week of class after starting on August 3rd. Be sure to keep in mind that you will likely be required to attend a mandatory orientation as a D1....ours was a full week before classes officially started.
