Primary Application Consulting Service for the AADSAS or TMDSAS Applications
The primary application to United States dental schools is processed through a centralized application service. For all dental schools (Both DDS and DMD programs) in the US except those in Texas, this centralized service is the Associated American Dental Schools Application (AADSAS). For Texas dental schools, the centralized application service is the Texas Medical & Dental School Applications Service (TMDSAS). These centralized application services process your application and send it to the individual dental schools you choose to apply to. The AADSAS and TMDSAS applications have several components including the personal information section, the activities section, and most importantly the dental school personal statement (statement of purpose). The dental school personal statement is where you have the opportunity to make a convincing argument for why you should be accepted to dental school among many competitive applicants. It is your chance to communicate directly with the dental school admissions committee.
It was my second time applying to dental school. After four years of hard work, studying for the DAT, and filling out applications, I felt demoralized! But there is always light at the end of the tunnel. Admissions Helepers gave me the tools that I needed to become a strong applicant. They helped me with study techniques for standardized tests, my personal statement, filling out my application, and even taught me phenomenal interviewing skills. It was a pleasure working with them.
AADSAS and TMDSAS Application Services
We work closely with applicants on the AADSAS application or TMDSAS application and personal statement. Our dental school admissions consultants help you develop an outline for your personal statement and assist you in building the content for a wining essay. We help you articulate your reasons for your interest in dentistry and your competitiveness for dental school through unique reflection on your experiences. We also work with you to highlight your most important activities and present them professionally on the AADSAS application or TMDSAS application. Our dental school admissions consultants also have experience helping you select which dental schools to apply to. Our specific services include:
Personal Statement Idea Development
If you have not started writing your personal statement, our consultants are prepared to help you develop the necessary content for a strong dental school personal statement. This service includes an initial review of your personal and professional background, and a consultation on how to present yourself as a strong candidate based on your background. Our dental school admissions consultants will work with you to develop the outline for your personal statement, help you decide which ideas to include, and assist you in developing these ideas.
Personal Statement Editing
If you have written your dental school personal statement (on your own or with our help), we assist you in modifying it, and reducing the length to fit the character limit. At this stage, our consultants can provide you with written or oral (depending on the client’s preference) feedback on your personal statement and grammatical/organizational edits to your essay.
Primary Application Assistance and Dental School Selection
Our consultants assist you in putting together other parts of your AADSAS application or TMDSAS application, including the activities section. We can help you decide which activities to choose as the three most meaningful and guide you as you elaborate on these meaningful experiences. We also help you with the dental school selection process, recommending dental schools based on your GPA, DAT scores, and additional experiences.
A combination of the above three services.
