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.

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 please comment below.
On Some Versions of Internet Explorer the Sorting Function on the table does not work, try using Firefox.
