    NO not yet, the only thing I received was from UIC telling me that they have received my CAAPID application.

    I really don't know their preferences..
    My gpa is not good may be that is reason, otherwise everything regarding the application is not bad I think.

    Good luck all.

    HI,
    those who have taken the date for nbde part 2 from prometric can u please tell me what is the earliest date available...?
    like which month approximately? its written that dates should be taken 60 -90 days in advance...do you need to book it that early? Also they send reports to three licensing boards...did you guys allot those right now when taking the part 2 , since we are just starting our applications for the 2013 cycle and its 2 more years if we get in and then graduate? I'm not sure how this works...
    thanks for the help..

    Hi,
    You have to look for the dates in the prometric centre where you want to take the exam. In my case, I took the date last week for June end so it depends from centre to centre. You can check that online.

    UPENN usually use regular mail to communicate, last year it took about one week after sending my application to receive a confirmation. And they started sending invitations for IV only after the deadline, and they used regular mail as well.

    Doing your own digging is part of the process... The harder you look into schools, more info you'll have, but you have to do a lot of it yourself...

    How many seats? CAAPID Directory: 30
    http://www.adea.org/dental_education_pathways/CAAPID/Documents/University%20of%20Pennsylvania.pdf

    Schools website is a great place to start your work:
    http://www.dental.upenn.edu/

    I had already received my acceptance at UIC last year when I was invited to an interview at UPENN, for personal reasons I stayed in Chicago, but I've got to say that I was quite tempted to attend that IV at Pennsylvania.

    Good luck!

    You can only find the good things and the bright side of any school at their website, but real rating and critique of any program is from the students and graduates.

    i already sent my documents to CAAPID and i recieved this email today from them

    ADEA CAAPID is in receipt of an incomplete copy of your foreign dental school transcript evaluation. The foreign dental school transcript evaluation we have received is a summary evaluation, not a course-by-course evaluation. You must submit your dental school academic record (transcript) to Education Credential Evaluators (ECE) or World Education Services (WES) and request a course-by-course (not summary) evaluation of your record.
    i already enclosed the unopened envelop of my ECE report with transcript matching form.....plzzzz help me ...what is this ....what should i mail other than ece and lors....they already update my lors???????help me my app gettin late

    You should check your ECE evaluation if it is Course by Course or not. If not, you should get a course by course evaluation done by ECE again and mail that to the CAAPID.( In course by course evaluation, all subjects are mentioned separately)

    dont worry ...if there are some updates in your online status .. that's means they are working through it...you will get it soon. worst case scenario, if you dont get it till next week email her and she does normally reply back in day or so.
    the wait is killing , just imagine what will happen when we wait for decisions.

    1-Did anybody receive anything from Upenn?
    2-Has anyone got started to study DAT and do you think that NYU will remove this requirement for students who have scores?

    Notarization is done by a public notary that you can find in the banks, public libraries and some places like UPS.. They will stamp and sign the copy of the document after they check the original one. Most of the schools require actual notarized which means that the stamp should be an actual one, not copy, so if you need 10 notarized documents you should have 10 copies stamped and signed.
