    Hi everyone, I am currently a sophomore pre-Dental student.

    I realize that there are several posts from the past on how to get into dental school. However,
    I would like to know from whoever will be a first-year dental student starting this Fall 2014 or whoever applied this past year regardless of acceptance, how to apply to dental schools step by step. It would be great if you could copy and paste the links for websites and be as specific as possible.

    I'm a complete newbie at this, so I would like as much information as possible. There aren't many people around me to guide me in this process, so this forum really helps.

    Thank you so much and I'm excited to read all of your responses.

    Do a bit of your own research on the process, schools, requirements etc. SDN is a great tool to have at your disposal, but to depend on it is probably not the best idea (at times from a accuracy point of view as well).

    Your message sounds as if it is a request for information. It won't go over well with some people here.

    Good Luck bud.

    Here's a link from my undergrad's Pre-Dental society: http://www.bio.udel.edu/dental-programs

    It gives a nice, quick semester by semester breakdown of ideally what you should be doing while in undergrad to be successful in the application process. It mentions our adviser/committee, so just ignore that and if your school has those, use yours.

    If you are asking how to get into D-school
    1. Join your school's pre-dental club
    2. Google is your best friend. Research schools' requirements and MAKE AN EXCEL SPREADSHEET. ADEA Official Guide 2014 is available for 10 bucks.
    3. Shadow!
    4. Keep up grades and volunteer

    If you are asking how to apply to D-school
    1. Check out AADSAS website for general application answers
    2. Glimmer's FAQ compilation thread http://forums.studentdoctor.net/threads/aadsas-faq-compilation.1020426/

    Thanks, everyone. I should really look into those websites.
