31 - Considerations for Non-Traditional Dental Applicants with Dr. Barbara Miller


Dr. Barbara Miller from the Texas A&M College of Dentistry joins us again to discuss considerations for non-traditional applicants to dental school.

While the criteria remain the same for non-traditional applicants, they must take into consideration that the rigors of dental school require more academic engagement than medical school. We also discuss how life experiences align with what dental schools are looking for in their applicants.


Join our online communities to receive early access to the podcasts, ask questions and receive information directly from TMDSAS, professional schools and advisors.

  • The TMDSAS Hub is open to all applicants in the EY2019/2020 cycle. 
  • The TMDSAS Non-Traditional Applicants group is open to all applicants who identify themselves as non-traditional and would like to connect with other applicants.

If you have any questions or comments about the podcast, reach us at podcast@tmdsas.com.

The TMDSAS Podcast is a proud affiliate of the MededMedia network.
