    It's funny, just because you live in South FL, does that mean you automatic know about NSUCDM? The answer is "no". Or maybe you know one or two NSUCDM current students, does that mean you know about my school? Again, the answer is "no"!

    No patient pool? Are you kidding?

    Temple is an amazing school, I'll be the first to admit. They do have plenty of patients, but they're all majority poor patients. When I interviewed there back in 2002, seniors were telling me that they had to fork out thousands of dollars to pay off their patients' balances so they can graduate!

    NSUCDM, we not only have patients, but we have mostly wealthy patients who are willing to pay for their treatments and pay them in cash in advance. Never heard of a senior who had to pay for patient's procedure to graduate!

    Temple and NSU are two different schools in two different settings. No one is better than the other. I, for one, love my NSU experiences and clinical exposure and I picked NSU over Temple (I was also accepted) back in 2002.

    Regardless of where you go, you'll be a dentist, but pick a place where you'll be happy for 4 years! Oh, one last thing, just because NSU did not accept you and you got accepted to Temple, there's no need to knock on NSU!
