    I think equally as good of a chance as pre-december interviews. Penn is a school who saves seats for those interviewing post-december, unlike other schools.

    For the current students,
    Are the summer / winter vacation durations different for each year? If so, how long is it? Do a lot of students start spending a big chunk or all of the summer for research right after D1? If not, when does that usually start?

    Thanks.

    I have heard of some unique situations in which students completed an externship at the end of D3 year so I wouldn't say no outright. Like I said though, it was a unique situation...
    Integrated boards isn't administered by the school so it really depends on ADEA!

    When I Interviewed on Feb 2nd. Ms. Cacas told me she was going through September/October submissions and thus they are behind. Also, she mentioned that you never interview for a wait-list. GL.

    Meaning there will always be spots vacant. Some schools at this time interview you for a wait-list/ alternate candidate. Penn doesn't do that.

    Yes. Every school has a wait list. An interview never guarantees an acceptance.

    Anyone here choose Penn over UCSF? I'm really drawn by UCSF's P/F curriculum and location, but I've heard specializing is a lot easier at Penn (is it because everyone after 1-10 is ranked #11, faculty and students are closer and recommendations are better, or specializing is the norm?)

    Can't decide between these two schools. Has anyone been in a similar predicament?

    I think both penn and ucsf are excellent places for specializing if you work for it. Both schools provide the resources and education that can help you go into fields you want.

    Both schools are good for specialization. Specialization is specifically good for Penn because many of their alumni are directors of specialty programs

    Interview invitation today finally! :) There are still a few days left. Not sure about chances of acceptance this late (it seems like there were many high caliber applicants who were waitlisted), but will still be attending

    Does anyone have any recommendations for hotels? Would it be unsafe to book a room outside University city? It's a bit cheaper so I'm just wondering

    Cause it looks like hotels in downtown area is a bit cheaper

    I stayed at a hotel in downtown, around a 10 minute uber drive to the dental school. I used hotwire and got a room quite cheap.
