Acceptance rates for many of the top dental schools are less than 10%, so it’s no surprise that most candidates get dinged from their dream schools. Most of these candidates reapply to dental school after working on their profiles for another year or two. But did you know, the dental school reapplicant acceptance rate is lower than the overall acceptance rate at several top institutions?
Getting a rejection from your dream school makes it tougher to get accepted. You need a very compelling narrative that takes into account what has changed since you last applied. You need to re-think every application document and draft your personal statement, essays while crafting a narrative that uses a lot of the same experiences as before.
If you are or plan to be a dental school reapplicant, the dream of going to a top school, and don’t want to repeat previous mistakes (or make new ones), this service is for you. We help you surface critical gaps and give you ideas on ways to fill them.
We know how hard a dental school rejection can sting, and we want to be very comprehensive in analyzing your documents so that we can provide targeted feedback. Our superstar team of Graduate Coaches, writing experts, and former Admissions Committee members conduct a thorough review of your documents. They start by analyzing your overall story, and academic and non-academic experiences and assess if your documents communicate a compelling, differentiated reason for why you should be accepted at that dental school.
Next, we evaluate your AADSAS application, personal statement, and essays for grammar, tone, and sentence structure. This includes an analysis of how easy it is to read your documents. The best-written documents are usually written in simple English. Technical or literary prose never works well.
Finally, we zoom out and look at everything in aggregate including test scores, undergraduate transcripts, essays, resume, and reference letters (if available) to provide holistic feedback on what you can improve before you reapply to dental school.
Yes! While the interview is a very important part of the admissions process, it isn’t the only part. Admissions committees look at your entire application before making a final decision. It is possible that you did really well on the interview, but your application package as a whole was lacking something.
It is pretty common for applicants who use the dental school rejection analysis and feedback service to go on and work with us through one of our end-to-end consulting packages. These candidates are 2.3x more likely to get accepted at a top 10 school. Several go on to attend Harvard School of Dental Medicine, UCSF School of Dentistry, and NYU College of Dentistry, among other top schools.
