Schools similar to Univ. of the Pacific?

<p>Hello everyone,</p>

<p>I'm a high school senior right now that's looking at becoming a dentist. I've been looking at different dental programs and I have found that UoP (University of the Pacific) has different levels of accelerated dental programs, 2+3 years, 3+3 years, and 4+3 years. This is probably my first choice school, and I'm looking mostly at the 3+3 year program because I don't want to completely miss my undergrad years. However, applying to only one school isn't going to work, so I've been trying to find other schools similar to the UoP but I can't find any? :( it's kind of strange. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong places, but could you guys help me out? I'm looking for a school that is:</p>

<p>Not a highly competitive school, but not a bad school either. I've been recommended by some dentists that I volunteer with that I should find a school where it's not ridiculously hard to maintain a good GPA, but not a bad school either. It's just that GPA > School Name when it comes to admissions.</p>

<p>A school that preferably is on the West Coast, I'd rather not move too far from home.</p>

<p>A school that is relatively small, under 15,000 students would be ideal.</p>

<p>A school that has a decent percentage of Asians (like ~20+ %). I'm not racist or anything, but I'm Asian myself, and I personally feel more comfortable around Asians. I don't only have Asian friends, I have friends from many different backgrounds, but...I just like Asians I guess XP</p>

<p>In general, a school similar to the University of the Pacific :P</p>

<p>Anything you would recommend? Recommendations don't need to exactly match what I'm looking for, I'm pretty open minded :) Any recommendations would be nice.</p>

<p>Sorry for the long post :( Thanks for reading :)</p>

<p>Oops, I forgot that I should probably include my stats:</p>
