btw, I'm Persian and I'm going to UoP as well!!!!
And I guess most of the Persians either go to schools in California or in Boston. I know a lot of them in Boston.

From what I've heard is that Persians make up about ten percent of every dental school on average.

I'm trying to get into ASDOH. I know of a couple other Persians who have already been accepted there.

Not to get racy here, but i actually think that persians lack manners. I had several of them in my college and they all formed cliques and tried cheating of everyone else, yet they never gave anyone answers. The were rude and bad mannered. So i really hope that either you all are not like them or that you dont go to the same school as me.

Where did you go to school? I know a persian who is doing extremely well at Tufts Dental. I also used to have a persian classmate who whined a lot. They are no different than anybody else.

WOW....Thanks for being so narrow:rolleyes:Not to get racy here? Well here is the news: You did:thumbdown: First of, 35% of persians/Iraninans who live in this country are health care professionals. You can't tell me they ALL got into med-dent-pharm-nursing schools by cheating. Right?​

2nd-you said they never gave answers to anyone? How do you know? Where you trying to get an answer?

Well they should have told you that ALL persians are not cheaters, but they ALL are nationalist.:mad: Now back to pre-dental!!!

Klutzy, where are you from? I'm asking about your race. I can come up with a lot of sterotypes in my mind for you, if you just let me know. However, stereotyping is not something a wise man would do.

LOL i apologize, i was just trying to get this thread closed and I was a little bored. Ive got nothing against anyone lol. Maybe it was just a poor judgment of my part, there are probably easier ways to get this thread closed.

Why would you want this thread closed?
Cuz im not very high on all the "this group thread that group threads". I dont thinkn it is relevant or important, how many people of a particular race are here. We are all the same regardless what race or anything. Why should it make a difference hom many oersians or orientals or hispanics or anything else there are. Who cares.

You do make a good point as far as everyone is the same and all, but not everything has to be serious on sdn, I personally think forums that allow people to find others with similar backgrounds refreshing. A better approach would be to ignore the thread if you feel that way.

Dear Fellow Persians,
It's always nice to see lots of motivated pre-dental Persians here, keep on the good job. Actually I have a question and would appreciate if you can answer me.
I'm applying form Canada (Not a US citizen) and I will be taking my DAT for Oct 20th.
Does it even worth to fill out any application for this cycle or should I apply for the next cycle?
Honours cell & molecular biology (graduated may 08)
GPA: 3.71 science GPA: 3.83
MCAT: bio 10 phy 10 ver 5 writing M
DAT: to be taken OCT 20th
Schools I would like to apply: NYU, Boston, tufts, Howard, USC (though very expensive!!), buffalo, michigan, conniticut
I also would appreciate if anybody post which schools tend to take Canadians.

You are going to get some serious grief as to why you took your MCAT. The dental schools are going to think that you do not really want to be a dentistand it is like a backup option for you. That is not good. I wouldnt mention the MCAT anywhere on your application. If your applicatiopn is already in then just do well on your DAT and you should be fine. If your app is not in yet, then youd better get it in quick cuz by the time you intervies almost all seats will be filled.

Thanks Klutzy for the quick reply,
I haven't sent my apps yet. I would like first to see my DAT score before sending my apps since I'm a bit worried about the RC section which is why my MCAT score is low when I took it last summer. This way, I would save money and can estimate my chances before sending the apps. Is it too late to send the apps by the end of October/early November.
What are the chances for the 2nd round of interviews?

I'm not iranian so i dont even know why I opened this post to begin with .. i think to see if any racist comments pop up whcih they tend to..for one I agree with klutzy...there shouldnt be these kinds of posts on SDN..they arent useful..wherever you go you'll find people of many cultures try to spread your roots and learn about others...and since I'll probbaly get bashed for this i will now respond to Peter...you took MCATS nad then you planned to be a dentist so NOW you're planning on doing DATs b.c you didnt do well on some of the MCATs. sectons..bad call...because you're going to hate your life seeing as how your first choice wasnt to become a dentist at all..but good luck anyway..
