good to see a thread on UPENN a good school indeed ..
well,me too applying for UPENN and i'm sure for everyone a school like UPENN ,is a dream school.
what all i know about UPENN's interview is....just be yourself in interview and dont exaggerate what u can do or any such sort of things be honest that's what they look for ..if u search old threads on this school im sure all your queries will get answer ...they dont look for just good grades in part 1 ..they look at you as how suitable you are for their school?your grades are good till your interview call...rest is your performance at that time
hope have cleared your doubts.. :)

I think Indian Bds gave you your reply.There are people who have gotten accepted with no experience.It is the overall package they look at.If you get a chance though, try to observe or volunteer at a dental office here.
Good luck

Hi,
I m also planning to apply to upenn ....regarding the nbde score report and toefl(code 2944 dept 00), i have sent the application directly to the college...but i will also be attesting notarised copies of nbde score and toefl along with my application.
regarding the transcripts( in my case its ECE) they accept notarised copies.
hope this helps.....

wao what great stats you have
hats off to you!! :luck: actually as far as i know upenn has no criteria for toefl..just eligibilty[i might be wrong]
but i have applied to ucsf too..that's the reason im retaking it they have specified in application form toefl split score ..no personal offence but that sucks ...we are not applying to any management schools or grad schools ..its dental school and having >28 in speaking ..is like cocentrating more on language than dentistry :sleep:
cant help it ...beggers cant be choosers ..application process has made me insane i dont know what 'll happen when we have to wait for interview calls ...and our adrenaline level 'll keep increasing :confused:
