We consider every application carefully, and we read every application within a “whole person” context. Every application is important, because every member of our community contributes to our special culture of diversity, curiosity and connectedness. While it is not required (except for UPenn Dental program), we highly recommend interviewing with a member of the admissions team. This is a unique opportunity for us to learn more about you while having your individual questions answered by a member of our staff.
