You've gotten no responses because your question doesn't make any sense. Are you asking how much time people put into applications, or how many times they apply before getting accepted?

The average number of times applying for those in dental school is probably one, if that's what you're asking.

for every application cycle, roughly half (although that number is gradually decreasing every year) of all applicants will attend a dental school the upcoming school year. There are many factors that come into play though. Some people simply give up after 2 or 3 application cycles if they don't get in. Some people will be able to successfully boost their stats for the second application cycle while others will continue to have terrible stats and thus will never get in a dental school. Someone may be applying to like 20 schools so chances of getting in somewhere will be high...while another person who's applying to 3 schools may get rejected from all 3 schools. If you have a good solid application, you'll probably get in a dental school. If not, it all depends on whether you can patch the holes before the next application cycle comes around.

"ItsGavinC" , so sorry for the confusion but yeah, about how many times do people usually apply before actually getting accepted.
If what "INFNITE" saying is true, then every year, about half of the people either give up or try again.
My follow up question is that if you do get rejected from all the schools, how long after do people wait and then reapply?
