    Hi Frank! Thanks for creating the thread. How would you describe your experience so far and what is the cost of living like? I'm coming from sunny Florida so I'm wondering if you had to make an adjustment weather wise or how anyone you know has had to. Thanks!

    Hi PredentalPrincess!

    My initial impression of the school from interviews to a week before class starts is very positive. Everyone has been very kind and helpful. The D2s I have talked to have been very happy with their decisions. The Cost of living is pretty high because the school is very close to NYC (less than NYC, but higher than a lot of places). As far as weather goes, I am from NY so no change for me. We experience all 4 seasons, the summers are hot (won't be a problem for you lol), Winters vary (some winters we get a couple feet of snow and some years we get very little). As long as you do not have to drive, the snow is not that bad plus it keeps you inside studying ;).. Good luck! I start classes in about a week so feel free to check back in a couple months and I should have a lot more info

    I received the "admission processing fee" email, where I paid the supplemental fee (a little over a week ago) but haven't received the "application complete" email but it on AADSAS it does say "received/under review". Anyone in the same boat, lol did they forget to send me the "app complete" email?

    Just received an email that my app is complete and will be moved to the Committee to review now, but I don't have my official DAT scores in yet.. Has this happened to anyone else? My scores should hopefully be submitted within the next couple of weeks, but they can't really review my application without them.

    Thanks for the info! About how long did it take for you DAT to be uploaded? It feels like it's been the longest week ever so far

    I took mine last year so I called aadsas and they linked it on the phone. If you took it a while ago then you can call aadsas, if not you have to wait.

    The website doesn't say they require a certain DAT score. Since it's a new school, maybe they're a little more lenient on DAT scores if you have a good GPA, extracurriculars, etc. If the average DAT for dental school in general is around a 20, that means that people matriculating scored both above and below 20.

    Once again, the average DAT score for our current D1 class is 21. This is higher than many other schools. According to the administration we were ranked in the top 10% of the country. The current D1 class has some very competitive stats in addition to extracurriculars and what not.

    The reason being that its a new school and therefore they are gping after stats rather than ec's. This is not a negative on the school at all, but a smart tactic. I actually have applied to the school and have it high on my list.

    Yes, I saw your post. That doesn't mean that'll be the class average every year, however. With Touro being such a new school, it's very difficult to compare personal statistics to the current classes. Don't get me wrong, those are impressive stats, but I think it's worth applying even if you don't have a 21AA.

    As long as you're a well rounded applicant you can say that about any school really! :) Good luck to everyone! Feel free to ask questions!!!
