Let's say you got accepted everywhere you applied to (lets hope that is the case), what school would you pick and why?

Right now, My top three choices are U.Washington, Temple, UPENN.

I would love to go to UW because it would save me 150,000 grand and i can be with my family. The school is the king of dental schools with a solid foundation in both clinical and research.

Temple, because I love philly. I like Ghetto neighborhoods and because the clinical is excellent. The people are awesome too.

UPENN, if I want to get to the prestigious side of things. Its program is solid like gold, since you practically have to be made of gold to afford to go there.

I will let you know a detailed input after my interviews. Well what about you guys?

1. Ohio State (they treat their students like gold!). For example, in previous years they have paid for the airline ticket, hotel, and meal budget for interviewees AND their spouses!

2. Case -- some of the best clinical opportunities in the nation/students have their own clinic chairs ( no bickering with other classmates over facilities).

3. UNLV -- brand new buliding = loads of fun. Plus, it's a great opportunity to network in Vegas, where dentists earn 15-25% greater income, on average, than any other place in the nation.

Hard to say until I visit the schools, but I'll guess...

1st: Temple (great clinical exposure) or MCG (cheap)
2nd: U of Maryland (oldest and well established) or Nova (sun & facilties)
3rd: Indiana

As a New Yorker, my top choices are obviously the four New York schools (in no particular order of preference):

Columbia SDOS
NYU College of Dentistry
Stony Brook
UB

They are competitive to get into, and their academic and clinical programs are no slouch either. And two of them are very affordable for NYS residents.

New York (next to California) is one of the most litigious places in this country, and consequently NYS dental schools will teach you very well on how to survive as a dentist in today's conditions when people will sue for the silliest of reasons. Frank Sinatra got it right-- if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.
