    Thanks a lot Treasure....I appreciate your helping mentality.

    Do you have any idea regarding the requirements for applying at Univ.of MINNESOTA?do we need nbde part 2 score also?[as it is a 2 year programme]

    Have they told anything about minimum score requirements for nbde,toefl and GPA?i couldn't find it in their website.

    Good luck & Thanks

    UMN PASS Program doesn't have minimun requirements like Upenn. It's the same program. Dr. Peter Berthold is the director of the program and he was the precursor of the PASS program in Upenn.
    It's a 2 year program and just apply with your score.
    Good luck!

    guys stop thanking me... Plenty of people have passed on useful information out before and I am doing the same ..no big deal.

    Anyway,I have spoken with a lady called Janet there and she said they will have about 8-10 seats this year as it is the first year.

    Does this means they'll be closing their programs for foreign dentists practicing in their state? The education by credential stuff they use to have?

    Let's put it this way.
    Now you have 2 options to get licensed in Minnesota.
