Dental School Admission Statistics in America: In-State vs. Out-of-State Applicants
Many dental schools in America explicitly skew their admission process in favour of applicants who reside within the state in which the dental school is located.
Some of the American dental schools that favour in-state applicants explicitly state the maximum number, out-of-province applicants, that they will accept and the maximum number of international students that they will accept. Take a look at the acceptance rates comparing in-state vs out-of-state to see what universities might be the most appropriate to apply to.
