Dental Admissions Purgatory
Dental Admissions Purgatory? Whaaaaaaat? That seems scary... We have all studied for a big test, taken the test, and then waited two weeks before we get our grades back. This can be one of the worst feelings ever because, even though you prepared and were ready, you still start to doubt yourself. This is exactly how waiting for that admissions decision can be. You have worked so hard to get here and now you just want to know if your dream is going to continue. In this episode we discuss what we like to all "Dental School Purgatory". At this point you don't know if you are in, out, or somewhere in between. You haven't been offered an interview yet? Don't sweat it! We discuss exactly how to handle that decision as well. If you're stuck in Dental Admissions Purgatory and feel like you're going crazy, be sure to give this episode a listen and reach out to us!
