Secret Tips For Getting Into Dental School
Here is my second biggest tip on how to get into dental school.
Now that you?ve applied to dental school, you may start to get some secondary applications. If you have a favorite dental school, and you get a secondary application, use it as a way to make a connection.
What do I mean by this? Well, if the school is close to you, call the dental school and ask some questions about their program. Make a connection with the person on the phone. Find out who the main person in admissions is, and try to get them on the phone for a few questions. If you can?t get them on the phone, try to get an email address to make a connection. If that isn?t successful, find out when that person will be in the office, complete the application, and drive it to the dental school. You can say you were stopping by, and you wanted to take a quick look at the school, and also you wanted to drop off your secondary application.
In fact, you should do this a few times if you can. Now that you have taken your application in, and made a connection with at least 1 person, you are no longer a number in their application process, they will be able to put a face to the name. This will be important when they are sorting through the applicants. If the school isn?t close to you, you can still call and make connections. Don?t let the distance stop you.
