    New school....has anyone looked into it? Is it fully accredited/will it be? What are your thoughts on applying/attending a new school like this?

    No dental school is fully accredited until it graduates it's first class. If a student goes to a school with preliminary accreditation (Western), they will graduate with a DDS despite the final accreditation status of the school.

    Same thing that's going on with MWU this year.

    Western U should be fine. :)

    I am not applying to Western U so i'm not 100% sure but for most of times, supplement applications are filled out once you finshing applying your regular application first (so you have to apply first and then they will either send it to you or you will have to go to website and download the pdf file - Baylor does this, and send it in through mail)

    if you are still confused, call and ask to be sure

    Will be sent via email. You'll also receive a statement in the mail that you can precede to the supplemental step.

    The supplemental app is now available on their website. There are a couple forms you need to fill out and send in along with your app fee.
