Hi All Dental Veterans,
I would be really obliged to have all your opinions about my question.
I got a score of 82 percentile NBDE part 1 in 2008. Now since the rule change I dont' think I can give NBDE Part 1 again. I live in Minnesota and have applied to UMN & Wisconsin the last 2 years without any luck. :(
Can you please suggest me other colleges I should apply to where I stand a chance ? I am willing to relocate to anywhere in the US.
Really appreciate your inputs on this.
Also if anybody from Minnesota has voluntary experience, can you please let me know where to look for these kind of positions.
Thanks :thumbup:

If you took ur NBDE part 1 in 2008, I think you can retake it again.
ADA mentions that only those candidates who took their exam beginning Jan 2010 and getting above 75 cannot retake the exam.
You may try and improve your part 1 score or take part 2 and then apply!
