Doctor of Dental Surgery Program

Los Angeles, CA, 90089


Dear USC Dental Selection Committee,


I am writing to reiterate my enthusiasm and excitement concerning the possibility of attending the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry at the University of Southern California. After two visits and interviews, USC remains my first choice. If admitted, I will most definitely attend.


I long for the vast opportunities that result from attending the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry: interdisciplinary practice exercises, community volunteer outreach, and a plethora of professional connections and opportunities. I especially appreciate the way that Dentistry at USC is based on student cooperation in problem-based learning; USC is an especially inspiring place where students are able to seek invaluable opportunities to learn beyond the classroom. I have my heart set on USC because I know for a fact that I will be pushed academically which will help me to grow as a person and become the finest possible dentist in the future, maximizing my human as well as professional contribution.


I see my entire life so far as preparation for dental school. I have established that I am  an excellent pre-dental student and have spent the better part of my high school and college years learning all I can about the profession. My own humble beginnings are reflected by the fact that good oral hygiene was never a priority in our family home when I was little. This makes me especially highly motivated, to have come so far and stand at the threshold of such vast opportunity to make a sustainable improvement in the lives of so many.


Thank you for your considering my application. I would be profoundly honored to continue to pursue my passion for dentistry at the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry at USC.
