    Hi Gisele,

    Well, I'm your future classmate for this coming year. Congrats on your acceptance.

    I think it's great to meet someone who will be toughing it out with me next year.

    Hey Stanford Fencer,

    Congrats on UCLA by the way. I've been so busy I didn't have a chance to message you.

    I hope I'm not going to have to be very brave when I go to Columbia, as I feel that dental school shouldn't be intimidating, but rather a place where us soon-to-be "professionals" can learn with each other in a good environment. Although, the students sure make it sound intimidating over there!

    Whne ar eyou in chat? Are you going to come to the Predental chat on Tuesday. If so, looking forward to seeing you there.

    Bucky

    hey buckyball.. i actually missed last tues. chat, but if there's going to be more of them, i'll be there! i chatted with you way way back, before i even had interview offers, i think... (and *you* had already gotten into columbia! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" /> )
    i'm undecided on schools still... UCSF or UCLA for now...

    For all those going to Columbia Dental school can you please tell as to what they look for as far as DAT and GPA goes and what kinds of questions they ask in interview. Thanks in advance.

    Hey Stargirl,

    So, you've finally decided! Or sort of decided! That's great!

    It'll be great to see all of you that I've chatted with in person at Columbia. <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" />

    Does anyone know when the second deposit is due, by the way?

    stargirl,

    are they supposed to send you something in the mail, or are you just supposed to send them a cheque automatically?

    hey everyone! buckyball, sorry i didn't respond back to your reply.....was so bogged down with work last week! i'm really excited to meet you all in september! what did you guys decide to do about housing? i heard the dorms were pretty crappy so i thought i'd look into getting an apartment. but then again, if most of the class is going to be in the dorms, it might not be a bad idea to rough it out in the dorms.

    Congrats to you all!

    Question from a 2003 applicant:

    What are you stats and are you a minority or out of state student?

    Hoping to join your ranks!

    Hey I'll be there with y'all.

    I'm pretty sure i'm gonna stay in an apartment. I was looking at the convenience of having a kitchen and a living room.
    I looked at the med area map, and don't see many places i could eat cheaply and healthy.

    But then again, I'm not from New York so I don't know how convenient it is to buy groceries, etc.

    I wonder how hard dental school is. I'm kinda cruising along at Texas A&M.

    Oh by the way, anybody golf or bike?

    tj lee,

    do you ever head up to dallas? I'm up here working and will leave for NYC in august.

    I'm not much of a golfer, but i like getting out there and hacking away at the ball. let me know if you're ever in my neighborhood and maybe we can hang out? if not, i'll see you in the fall.
