School Overview

School Info

LSUSD, the only dental school in Louisiana, is considered one of the finest dental schools in the world. Its state-of-the-art facility offers students the best possible clinical education complimented by opportunities in research, national externships and community service. Students and faculty provide over 100,000 patient visits annually in 22 locations throughout the state, serving as a valuable resource for Louisiana citizens. Research, through the school`s Center of Excellence in Oral and Craniofacial Biology, creates a rich research environment for the education and development of students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty researchers in oral and craniofacial biology.

Curriculum

The curriculum in dentistry represents a blend of basic, clinical and social sciences covering all four academic years. As the emphasis on basic and pre-clinical sciences decreases from year one to year four, the student`s exposure to the clinical sciences increases. The objectives of this approach are to help the student interrelate the basic and clinical sciences and to fully comprehend patient care and its rationale.

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
