Dental School Admission Statistics 2010 Entering Class

Below is a table displaying the Dental School Admission Statistics for the class entering Fall 2010. These statistics are designed to help pre-dental students choose the schools they plan on applying to. All pre-dental students should apply to their respective state public school, and then apply to private schools which have a high acceptance rate for out of state students. As a rule of thumb, you should apply to at least 10 private schools in which your DAT & GPA scores are greater than or equal to the 2010 entering class, to have a better chance at getting accepted.

Buy the ADEA Official Guide to Dental Schools 2011: For Students Entering in Fall 2012 for more detailed school statistics using the link above.


1. These are the most updated statistics and were created for students who plan on applying to dental school Summer 2011.

2. I created these statistics because much of what I found on was outdated or inaccurate.

3. When values were not reported I reported the value as 0 on the table to make the table sorting function work better. Some values where actually 0, using good judgment and common sense it should be easy to distinguish the 0 values and the not reported values, any questions or clarification please comment below.
