It’s really wise to think about your residency program well in advance, therefore we have prepared a great list of the easiest orthodontic residency programs to get into.
GPA, or Graduate Points Averages are essential in the application procedure. Naturally, you need to have the highest GPA in order to be able to apply for the best residencies. According to Insider Monkey’s investigation, the average GPE that is needed for orthodentic residency is between 3.44 and 3.8. If you are a foreign student, you will need other requirements, such as TOEFL or some other proof of English proficiency.
But if you think that having good grades and scores are enough to get into residency programs, we must tell you it’s very hard to get into these programs, because tha acceptance rates are very, very low. Generally only very few applicants can start their studies there, and only the best ones are accepted. And we mustn’t forget about the tuition fees, that are extremely high in these institutes as you will see in our list.
