Pre-Dentistry at Behrend

What do Dental School Admissions Committees Look for in an Applicant?

 

  • Can the student handle the academic rigors of dental school?
     
  • Why does the student want to be a dentist? Do they want to be in the profession for the “right” reasons and know the dedication the career entails?
     
  • Do they have a diverse set of skills necessary to be a dentist?

 

How can Penn State Behrend help the student succeed?
