    Is it so hard for everyone to understand that aside from VCU being a great school/clinical experience in general, I will be there...and that in itself makes it the best! Is that so hard to fathom? :rolleyes:

    Wow, if that didn't sound just a wee bit sarcastic! Many, many good things about VCU. Location, reputation, clinical exposure, research opportunities, seemingly happy dental students and professors, not too large of a class size, that new DentSim lab...oh, and did I mention that Kooch and I will be there? 'Nuff said!

    Hi Guys,
    I have been selected for an interview at VCU on the 7th of May for the advanced standing program. Is there anyone on the list who got the call too? Does any of you know about the interview procedure? Kind of questions? Is it more of a personal interview or is it more of theoretical?
    Your help will be greatly appreciated. Please PM me for replies or mail me at [email protected]
    Thx

    Hey and contrats on the interview. Most, if not all, the ppl you will find on this forum are entering VCU as D1's. Were you wanting to know about the interview process for advanced standing? If so, I doubt anyone on here would know. I think that is a very rare situation. You might have more luck in the dental forum instead of the predent forum. Well, good luck and if you do have any questions about the school or about how our interviews went then feel free to ask. Again, congrats and good luck! P.S. If you don't mind my asking, why are you transferring?

    What percetange of out-of-stater does VCU accept every year?

    And what's their typical profile (DAT, GPA, experience..)?

    Thanks.

    VCU, at least historically, has accepted 35/90 out of staters. In our class, there are about 4 from the Northeast, 4 from Kuwait, a few from the Northern Mid-west, some sprinkled around the South and I'd say most of the out of staters are from Utah. For our class (Class of 2011), we had an average incoming GPA of 3.45 and average DAT scores of a little over 19. Good luck.

    I keep wondering if there were any SDNers in the lab on oct 15 when I was there. I kept trying locate SugarNaCl and koochooloo.

    "excuse me, do you know a D1 named sugar sodium chloride?"
