I know I already posted something about this on Facebook, but I had to brag some more. If you didn’t get a chance to check out the link on FB, basically UNR & UNLV have created an accelerated BS-DMD program and our niece Milan Montero is the first and only student accepted into the program. She will attend UNR for 3 years to complete her undergraduate degree in biology and then head to UNLV for 4 years of dental school.
So what’s the big deal? The big deal is Milan gets to stay close to home, she won’t have to worry about applying to dental school, she’ll finish the program 1 year ahead of most people and she’ll save a ton of money with in-state scholarships and tuition. So excited for you Milan!
Although she also got in to accelerated programs at New York University and the University of the Pacific, I’m happy she chose my alma mater. Go Rebels!
