Check the Dental School Explorer. I think some of your schools on the list are very OOS unfriendly (Augusta?, Buffalo?, Maryland, Washington) do check about this before removing from the list. Check out tuition and cost of living for USC if you really think you want that level of debt. How have you networked with the schools on your list? We had a virtual fair in June so other than this...?
