    I had two interviews already, one at NYU and one at VCU. NYU was very laid back, they asked why perio? why nyu? and what questions did you have about the program? VCU was more structured, but same idea- why perio? why vcu? where do you see yourself in 10 years? any questions for us? good luck!

    I just interviewed at Rochester, South Carolina and Minnesota.

    Rochester and South Carolina were both pretty standard.
    - why did you decide to apply here?
    - why do you want to be a periodontist?
    - why should we take you?

    Minnesota was a little different. It was just us asking them questions, not the other way around. I don't know...

    At all the schools, they spent a good amount of time showing us around the clinic and the rest of the school. They wanted to make sure we had a good idea of what we were getting ourselves in to.

    Good luck to everyone!

    My husband and I have decided that VCU is our number 1 choice. Despite the fact that we will have live separately for three years cuz I work in DC, its worth saving the 150K+ it costs to go anywhere else. This wait is killing me more than it is killing him. The man is like an iceberg and I am going crazy!!

    I guest, if you have not got offer today, you may in the wait-list. for the applicant the program like most will get offer today.
    you still have chance since someone will get several offer and decline some. just my cent.




    good luck

    hi everyone, i have withdrawn my applications from columbia and maryland. if you are interested in those schools, I would call to see if they will give you my interview spots - 9/7 for columbia and 9/12 for maryland. it could be that the classes are full already due to the new agreement, but it's worth a shot if you think they are your top choices. i got into UNC but did not accept, so if you know anyone who interviewed there I would give the same advice - call and express your interest ASAP. not sure what kind of system they have in place to fill the class if their initial offers didn't take.

    as for me, i'm sticking with staying at stony brook!

    Congrats and Thanks wigglytooth!!
    I just dont understand how Maryland is still interviewing and already sent out acceptances on Friday? or are they having the interview and acceptance process over like 2 segments or something?

    thanks! i'm really not sure how it works if they possibly already filled their classes. maryland initially wanted me to come on either the 29th or 31 but I could not rearrange my flights - so they offered me the date on the 12. good luck to everyone!

    My husband got into VCU so we turned down the offer from maryland. Maryland has three interview days and picks one person from each group. Now they have an extra spot. Good luck to everyone!
