    Actually, NOVA is the best.... I love that school so much...still waiting for an interview.

    So, go to Nova.... it's not even an issue... I'm sure mostly everyone will agree with me.

    Sorry about the last post-- I wish everyone would go to other schools and leave at least one space open for me at Nova. My conscience got to me... I must be honest!!!

    4.oo :eek: :D ;) :cool:

    Hi Masoud!

    Well, people don't really speak too highly of Meharry. I don't know too much about it except that they are rumored of having the lowest acceptance stats. I heard they are also in a bad area, and I don't know if you went to Nova for an interview yet, but NOVA is in the most beautiful area... it's not too expensive considering the education you get, weather, area, etc.

    I love Nova!!! Thanks for the luck... and don't make the biggest mistake of your life, go to the best school!!! hehe

    4.oo :p :eek: :rolleyes: :D

    Hey 4.00,

    Why do you love Nova so much? I interviewed there, and I liked the school, but do you think it's too new to have a solid reputation yet?

    Thanks guys for the input, well, as far as the area, I agree that it is in a bad area, however, it is a very old school and I think meharry is one of the oldest dental school in the nation while nova is very new. I think that is its plus. as far as acceptence stats, I think you are rigt i just looked at it, however, acceptence is not based on DAt and GPA but on your charac and being a minority. Well, I would appriciate more input from anyone who knows more.
    thank you all
    merrcy Christmass and happy holidays.

    Masoud,

    I applied and got accepted to Meharry. I think it is a great school. I found the faculty and students to be really friendly and I liked the small class size. The fourth years actually know people from the first year....you can't say that for most of the dental schools b/c they are so huge! Anyways, the board passing rates are pretty good. I also liked the schools long history. In the end, we will all be dentists so just choose the school that feels right for you!
    Also, I don't think it is the "easiest school to get in"--especially when you consider the number of apps vs. interviews vs. class size.

    so are you gonna go to Meharry? I decided to go to meharry for two reasons,
    1) less expenssive
    2) experienced School
    If you go there, hope I will see you
    thanks
