    The AADSAS application opened on June 4th, 2012, I suppose. So, I don't think we can have any news before the end of this year. :)

    This school is not that impressive.

    IU dental was supposed to open up a new dental school and start the building the new school last year, but decided to scrap that plan. Rather the admins decided to re-build a dental lab down in the basement floor of the building. The new lab looked soooo depressing. I wouldn't want to spend my time working on my project in a basement lab.

    the instructors at this school are not that cracked up to be. I toured the school last year during my interview, and one of my friends who's in his last year at this school told me that I shouldn't attend indiana while I was deciding which dental schools I should commit to. I also looked at the students working in the basement dental lab, and they didn't look too happy at all.

    My friend told me that the students in general, aren't that friendly. Being in PBL groups brings out the animosity and cockiness of the student who tend to be from within indiana.

    Lastly, I didn't want to attend a dental school associated with a university with a defunct basketball team, and a football team that could be beat by a high school football team. :laugh:

    So did someone contact you and ask you to send a fee?

    I thought a fee request and an interview went hand-in-hand at IUSD.

    In-state. predent1210 said that he sent his fee in and I think he is out of state. It has been my experience that a fee request from IU means you have an interview. They don't skin you like most of the other schools these days. I respect that.

    I've heard that IU accepts less than a few out of state applicants. Is there any truth to this? Do out of staters have any chance?

    Second invite (2 days after my first, go figure; I was starting to freak out).

    I'm sending in my interview email on Monday and hope to get an interview spot on Nov.15th.

    I am OOS, NC resident.

    Best of luck to everyone!

    My friend is in her first year at IU and she's OOS. I believe they accept ~30 OOS. The OOS alternate list moves fast... went to almost #30 last year.

    If you received a NR Fall interview letter in what format did you respond. Did you make changes to the word document (or PDF) and send it back or add an additional letter stating what was asked along with the Fall Interview letter? Any other specifics on format would be helpful thanks!

    just curious... i am an 8th batcher and have received 4 interviews so far. i feel very fortunate. but im still waiting to hear from 3 schools. two in Illinois and indiana.

    I have only received the first acknowledgement email from indiana that they have all of my materials. and i got that email days after i submitted. So should I call to see the status of my file or wait it out still?

    I was thinking one more week

    thanks

    Just to let you guys know.... That the interview is a closed file....... They started doing this last year bc the interviewers were scoring people based on their academic status..... Therefore the interviewers have no way of knowing your background. But! They will have a print out of your personal statement..... So make sure to read over your ps before going to your interview. Also..... They ask you questions back to back......it was crazy for me cuz i never had a one on three type of interview!! It was crazy for me..... What an experience....

    Fyi, they asked me if i knew the name of the dean.... And of course i did not look that up before going in.....


    So yea.... Good luck to you all!!

    Honestly i dont even remember their names.... The female interviewer had an accent....and she was the one asking me all kinds of questions while the male interviewer was pretty relaxed and friendly.... The d4 just sat their and jumped in whenever he felt like asking questions.....


    I was just sweating the whole time i was in the room....... Or maybe it was just me.... Idk :confused:

    It sounds like we had different people.

    No don't worry I was nervous as well when I had mine, everyone once. You could tell everyone was really tense and uptight. If it makes you feel any better I had a small panic/stress attack (sweating/head spinning) while waiting in that small room with all the other applicants. Just played it off for a minute or two and rolled with the punches :)

    Not just you!
