    It seems like it's so hard to get into dental school.
    I looked at 'Admission Requirement to Dental Schools' and the applicant/enrollee ratio. It's almost 10:1. This means that acceptance rate goes about 10-15%.
    Is it really this hard to get into dental school?
    Columbia and Penn had about 15:1 ratio. Are these schools this hard to get into?

    The applicant to acceptance ratio may be 10/1 at some schools, but the overall applicant to acceptance ratio is closer to 3/1. The individual school ratio can be misleading because most applicants apply to more than one school.
