depends on school. columbia has a 2 month summer break after 1st year, 2nd year is flexible depending on when you take the national boards, 3rd year you get 1 month i believe.

BU has a 2 week summer break, if you don't count in the pointless APEX program. Otherwise, it's 3 months off!

Off topic, but do you really think APEX is pointless? IT sounded intriguing during the interview.

It seemed pretty horrendously pointless to me. You're not allowed to do any hands-on dentistry during your APEX rotations, you're just supposed to shadow. Most pre-dental students shadow before going to dental school anyway, so I fail to see the point.
