    Hello everybody!!!

    I would love some advice from anyone practicing, in school, or any input from you all. I've bot a 2.62 ECE and 3.51 WES gpa. An 86 on my Part 1, and a perfect score TOEFL.

    NYU wasn't really interested. I called and their average this year was 3.2 with an 85...

    Should I redo my part 1? I was in the process of preparing for part 2, but that would only help for 2 more schools - Loma Linda and New Jersey.

    Should I do my GRE and get into a Masters program?
    Are there any programs other than MPH??? Just curious indices are really weak point for me?

    OR should I do what most Canadian dentists say? Do the Canadian boards? I'm under the impression its part 1 and 2 COMBINED? The idea makes me dizzy

    Right now I'm thinking of doing every exam I can get my hands on.

    SDN is a great place and well I really wanna want your opinions and advice! Plus the seniors here rock!

    Help me.... my goal's to be in school, come one year...


    Seniors PLS Advise.

    How about your experience ? It's not all about numbers (especially in your case). I am going to say that you have little of it, which may make some ADCOMs (admission committees) nervous voting in your favor with such average numbers ... give us some more input.

    You're on the right track though ...

    I've just have my one year Internship in India, and another year assisting various dentists here in town.

    Do you think my stats are in line with that of a newbie like myself? I'm not too sure. I've been working on my appl packages right now actually. What do you think, with that amount of experience, does it corelate with my stats??

    Jess.
