Hi everyone,
Can you please help me take a look at my school list?
I'm Vietnamese, DAT not taken yet (~18-22), cGPA 3.84, sGPA 3.73, Texas resident, strong volunteer and dental experience records, mediocre LORs (I think), good interview skills.
Are there schools that do not disadvantage Asian / Viet? Feel free to add to the list. Thanks!

Why not apply to the new Texas Tech dental school opening up in El Paso? It doesn't cost anything, and you just apply through TMDSAS like the other three. It sounds to me like you're a pretty good candidate for in-state though, as long as you do well on the DAT (21 or up).
The Texas schools especially value diversity in their student body (race, gender, age, occupation, etc.), so I don't think being Vietnamese will necessarily put you at a disadvantage.

Wouldn't even bother applying to NYU. Unless you're rich, considering the military/NHSC, or dont' mind taking out 650k in loans, you're probably not gonna go there.
