    You won't get an interview withouth Part 2. Part 2 is a requirement for LLU. Either they think you will send your Part 2 scores before the deadline or they gave you the supplemental without seeing your credentials. You will be wasting your time with the supplemental because without both scores you don't have a chance.

    They will email you the questions which i guess will be specifically made for you. There are usually 10 questions through which they try to evaluate your personality and beliefs. Dont worry they are pretty simple and straight forward

    They will not accept that unfortunately. This school's policy for the transcript/marksheets + diploma attested and sealed by the registrar is very strict. It must come your college/university. I personally asked the school and they went on to tell that they will be looking at the stamp (postage), to confirm where it came from.

    I don't think so. I sent my transcripts myself in a sealed envelope and they accepted that. you may want to double check with their office.

    Still Waiting too !

    Guys, are you practicing for the study case test?? Well, I know that they give students a case with X-Rays and they ask you to provide a treatment plan for that case.

    I'm sorry I haven't been able to be as active here as I was when I was IDP director, this new position takes quite a bit of time. To clarify though, the invitation you receive for August 19 is not for an interview, it is for the diagnosis/tx planning and dexterity test. Whether you receive an interview or not will be dependent on your performance on the test. The interview invitations will go out after the exam and interviews will take place sometime in the week following the testing that occurs on the 19th.

    That is something you would have to ask the admissions department about (909)558-4621
    Good Luck to all of you.

    hi,

    Invitations will be sent out in the first week of August. That's what the admissions at Loma Linda told me. I have not starting preparing for the dexterity test or the case study questions. Can anyone let me know what they generally ask in the dexterity test and from where I can prepare for the case study.

    Thanks

    I've received some requests for information in PM's so I'll share the information that I have been authorized to release with the group as a whole.

    In the case study you will be given photographs, radiographs, health history and a statement from the patient. You will be asked questions of and given direction on what to do with this information.
    The dexterity test will consist of preparations on a typodont, which is mounted to a mannequin on a dental chair. Preparations could include a combination of full crowns, composite or alloy preparations. Teeth and surfaces will not be selected until the morning of the exam.

    Good luck to you all, Dr. Mitchell

    Thank you Dr. Mitchell for providing us with these helpful info. We really appreciate it.

    For the study case, is it a MCQ or essay test??

    Thank you!

    Yes, I did, about an hour ago. It is just general info about LLU. I dont know why I got it now. I had applied in May and my application was complete a long time ago.

    It would have been nicer if it were an interview invite.. :D

    Thank you Dr. Mitchell. Just one more question. By alloy preparations you mean amalgam preparations? Do we have to Practice inlay or onlay preparations or three fourth crowns also?

    I doubt it, Dr. Mitchell clearly stated that it won't be complex. It's pretty straightforward. So I would say not to waste your time with a prep like that. It won't come.

    Everyone invited will be doing the dexterity and case study on the 19th. Those selected from that will have an interview on the 21st or 22nd.
