I don't think it'll hurt you at all as far as you can spend your time with a defined goal during that year. After all, I'm taking a year off, too.heywhatsup said:does it look bad to take a yr off after you graduate? i dont thikn im ready to apply
I like to study CS:Source to practice these important skills.reapply2007 said:I took a year off to work hand and eye dexterity as well as visual acuity. Splinter Cell, Halo 2, etc. Best choice I ever made. You'd probably do yourself a favor by working at least part time in a dental practice.
As long as you can tell the admission people what you did during your off year during the interview, you will be good. I also took a year off before dental school because I was not ready to apply. I basically did a lot of volunteering at the hospital and dental clinics, tutored a lot of students and did a lot of traveling. I am glad I took the year off, because I did things that I know I won't be doing when dental school starts. Also, I feel so refresh, just before the start of dental school.heywhatsup said:does it look bad to take a yr off after you graduate? i dont thikn im ready to apply
