hi guys, I’ll be graduating dental school sometime next year at my home country (Philippines) and I’d like to know or at least have a general consensus of what are the chances of me being admitted to a dental school that’s provides a two year reciprocity program for foreign graduates. My GPA isn’t that all admirable compared to those I’ve seen posted on this board since that it is only between 80-83 %, but I did however score a 95 on the NBDE 1 last December and I plan to take part 2 after I graduate. How is the screening process like, is this a good enough score so that my overall GPA wouldn’t be a factor (or at least not too much) in admission? Thank you in advance

hi , ure part 1 score is great.
ure gpa will also be ok. as long as its above 3.00 , no questions will be raised.
ure Gpa is calculated depending on ure university .... i mean most student s who come from india .. have about 60-65% and yet manage a decent GPA. thus i guess the GPA is calculated compared to the scores given by ure university....
dont worry.. ure chances of gettign admission to a 2 yr advanced standing programme are great ...
