    Did they call you or just change your status to "offer made"?

    "Offer Made" on AADSAS and status update on the Pacific Dental site to "Accepted", both dated 11/30/2010. :D Still not even 10AM right now, so no call yet.

    So, this is pretty random, but I have a funny question. Now that acceptances have been given out, I am sure that some of you are thinking that you won't be trying as hard in school. This is my dilemma...with Pacific, you have to get B's. So my question is: Can those be B-'s? Also, does the "B rule" apply to only pre-reqs? Or does it apply to all classes?

    Congrats everyone!!
    I have a very random question, and I figured by asking you guys that you all could give an unbias opinion. :)
    I am from a state that doesn't have a dental school, and I got accepted as an outstate dental student to UMKC, LSU, and Tennessee. I am having trouble deciding between them. How would you guys rank these schools? Which ones would you go to,and why?
    I have talked to several people and at 3 schools, but, of course, there is a bias towards their school. I would really appreciate any input you guys could give me. Congrats on your acceptance! :)

    Well I have an interview in early February, peerless who is currently a student said he interviewed last year in March. Being that UOP is expensive I anticipate they will interview like last year until March or later. I just wish I knew if now they are interviewing for alternate positions still or not.

    Accepted! yay!!

    And to eringer: Get B's, not B-'s, in all your classes. Fall semester they are more forgiving but spring semester not as much... It shouldn't be that hard to get B's in GEs anyways, bio classes might be a bit more difficult but its all good :p

    My interview is coming up and I am very excited. Does anyone know when UOP will start to interview for wait-list positions? When I scheduled my interview there was no mention, but I want to know. Thanks in advance, and congrats to those recently accepted!!

    I still see it haha. But sometimes when I scroll down I pass over it. I'm too used to seeing "UoP" and not "pacific."

    Oh...sorry, this thread slides down the page faster than you could believe. Hmmmm... The only update I got was at the UoP portal and the acceptance letter in snailmail (Denticles11 was kind enough to provide the link.)
    I don't expect anything from, or bother checking AADSAS anymore.

    Does UoP accept international students for their 3-year DDS program (not advanced standing)?

    Yes Pacific does take students who are not citiziens. The person who sits next to me in the sim lab is from Korea with a student visa.

    Oh wait, I forgot to mention this. The person did her undergrad here in the US so I don't know if this will fit your situation.

    So I was just accepted to UOP recently. However, I put my deposit down at Louisville back in December, I loved it there too. I want the opinions of those who will be attending on how they feel about UOP? I am torn between both schools.

    As soon as I got this interview I cancelled every other interview I had after. 3 years to be turned into one of the most qualified dentists in the country, in a humanistic surrounding. Not to mention I can toss my beach poster that I have in my room currently and just look out the window when I feel like seeing a beach view. I'm not speaking on behalf of everyone, but most would agree with me when I say SF>KY. Come join the UoP family!
