    On UNC's supplemental application it asks to list all other dental schools to which I am applying. Should I list out ALL the schools I am applying to or will this look "bad" to them that I am applying to more than just a few?

    Thanks.

    They just wanna know where they rank in your list. No one likes to be a backup school. Listing the relatively unknown schools could help you out a bit.

    I also had a minor question about the UNC supplemental...

    on the Academic Info page, they ask you to select your "Current year in higher education". Here are the choices (in this order):

    First
    Second
    Third
    Fourth
    Post-Fourth Year
    Graduate Study
    Post Graduate

    For people still in college, this is easy. I graduated a year and a half ago, so what would I choose? The most logical choice seems like "Post Graduate" but based on the order in which it's listed, it seems like "Post Graduate" = post graduate school. So would I be considered "Post-Fourth Year"?

    I did post-bac work and listed myself as post-fourth year.

    Definitely list all your schools - I think it's always a good idea to answer each question truthfully. I applied to 13 or 14, and I listed them all. It never came up.
