Holistic admissions

holisticHolistic admissions for dental schools means assessing candidates as comprehensive individuals with varying competencies and experiences that, when taken as a whole, will make it likely they will be successful dental students.

Dental schools want their classes to be comprised of interesting, talented students who will contribute to the dental school, and the community at large, in meaningful ways.

The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) is a great resource for additional information on holistic admissions and holistic review.
