Deciding where to apply
As part of the
application process, it is important to decide which schools you will apply to.
While there are many publications that rank the dental schools, they are often
inaccurate, as there is no level playing field to rank one against another
since they all offer programmatic and mission-based differences. This is why it
is so important to determine what you are looking to get from your dental
education and how you want it to be structured.
There are many factors
to consider when deciding which schools to apply to, including geographical
location, student body, curriculum type, clinical or research focus,
community-centric or larger clinical experiences and many more. Use the map and
dental school preferences sheet below to help you determine what schools you
want to designate on your ADEA AADSAS® application.
