    Hello :)

    As the subject of my post implies...I am wondering whether it is possible to transfer from a foreign dental school to an American dental school. Below u'll find info relating to what I've completed and been up to over the years:

    1) I'm an American citizen (not sure if this makes a difference) and resident of California
    2) I graduated from University of the Pacific in Stockton with a B.S. in Biology in December of 1998. Some of the courses I took while there include:
    *General Biology (2 semesters)
    *General Chemistry (2 semesters)
    *Organic Chemistry (2 semesters)
    *General Physics (2 semesters)
    *Human Anatomy (1 semester)
    *Human Physiology (1 semester)
    *Histology (1 semester)
    *Microbiology (1 semester)
    *Genetics (1 semester)
    *Psychology (1 semester)
    *and a bunch of other G.E. classes
    3) I took the DAT in October of 1996
    4) I enrolled and attended a full year of medical school in Cairo University in Egypt, completing the following courses:
    *Human Anatomy (1 year)
    *Human Physiology (1 year)
    *Biochemistry (1 year)
    *Histology (1 year)
    5) I will be transfering to and starting Dental school this upcoming fall in either Cairo University or Ain Shams University; both in Egypt

    With all this in transferring possible? If so, who should I contact, what schools do this sort of thing? and who out there has done it?

    Thanks in advance for your replies :)
