I think UK has an excellent DS. It is very clinically oriented...even first years get to work with real patients. The school performs some research, but is more focused on public health, especially with Lexington's poor and poor people in southeast KY. The equipment they have is very current and up to date. It's in the Chandler Medical Center, a large hospital downtown which also houses the med. and pharm. schools, and dental students end up taking lots of classes with med. school students, just because the dental school is small. I think a typical class is about 50 or so. It's also pretty affordable.
As far as Lexington goes, it has about 250 or 300k people. Still, it feels more like a small town. The crime rate is low and the city is clean. Bluegrass Airport is right outside town. There is a good public transit system, but most people drive around town. There is plenty of student-type housing in and around downtown. If you're from a big city, you would probably get bored, because there isn't a whole lot in Lex. besides UK.I On the bright side, you're about 40 min. from Louisville, about 1 hour from Cincy, and a couple hours or so from Nashville, Indy and Columbus.
Didn't mean to post this much, but figured I could squash this thread (which most of you guys aren't interested in) quickly.
