Hello guys,

I was trying to write essays for the UPenn supplementary application, and the first essay prompt is to write about pre-dental experience that isn't listed on the AADSAS.

The prompt exactly says: Please list any additional predental experience not listed on your AADSAS application. This experience can include but not limited to observation in practice, dental clinic, or hospital setting; dental assisting; dental lab work; dental research; etc. Please include the time alloted for each activity, dates of attendance, location, and description of your experience.

What does this mean? Doesnt' AADSAS give enough spaces to put down the pre-dental experiences?

Is this only for those people who may exceed the space provided in the AADSAS application?

If so, how many spaces are available for the dental related experiences on AADSAS?

Thank you!

You can write about stuff you're doing over the summer or planning to do during the year.

Anyone know if the prompts on the 2010 Penn supp app are going to be the same as the ones on the 2011 supp app. I'm guessing they won't change too much year to year...
