    The students accepted last cycle had an average of 101 on TOEFL... They give preference to early applicants so send your application right away and update your score as soon as you get it back.

    I couldn't find the school code either.... Send an email to Braulia asking about it, I'll be with her tomorrow so I can also ask in person.

    "TOEFL Scores: Evidence of English competency - Official scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). A minimum score of 80 (internet-based: IBT) with subsection minimum requirements of: writing 21, speaking 20, listening 17, reading 19 or 550 (paper-based) or 213 (computer-based). Please note that TOEFL scores over two years old are invalid. TOEFL scores must be reported directly to UIC by ETS, please request ETS to send the score electronically."

    hope 4 - thanks for your replies...i have read your posts in the last cycle ..congrats for getting into UIC..has school started?
    i did email her yesterday but i haven't got any reply...i even called the office and left a VM.
    what should we do now? by the replies it seems all are having a problem ...
    also UIC doesnt mention any requirement for LOE - so does that mean we cant send any extra LOE directly to the program other than CAAPID?

    your help will be greatly appreciated to us who are applying for the first time ..thanks a ton.

    For CAAPID you need to send only 3 Letters of Evaluation and ECE report. They accept notarized if you don't have originals.
    Transcript,degree certi. etc. you have to submit to the school and not to the CAAPID.

    --I don't think you can pre-order additional scores without having the score for the exam first...
    --You can order NBDEs reports send direct to you (keep the envelopes sealed though!)
    --I'm not sure about CAAPID this year, but last year they didn't require NBDE (neither TOEFL) scores to be send to them, only ECE and LOR's.

    PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE MULTIPLE DOCUMENTS IN ONE ENVELOPE. EACH DOCUMENT SHOULD BE SENT IN A SEPARATE ENVELOPE. ALL THE INDIIDUAL ENVELOPES CAN BE SENT TO OUR OFFICE TOGETHER IN ONE LARGE ENVELOPE.





    so, i have my original ECE report with me but its not in any envelop....can i put it in any plain envelop and send to cappid with my 3 LORs......or i shud order new copy from ECE

    plz help its taking too much time

    That would be new for me... Unless they have changed something they require sealed envelope from ECE.

    You can start your CAAPID application without your TOEFL score but you'll only be able to submit as a final application after you get your results. There are a lot of things to fill out on that application, so you should start working on the other requirements, and when you have your TOEFL just add and submit it.

    CAAPID accept 'up to' 3 LORs, with you have all of them doesn't hurt submitting them all. Some schools have specific requirements, most of them as one of those to be from the Dean from your dental school, and other from Faculty. For UIC it is very important to have one from a dentist in the US (let say someone that you worked as a dental assistant for example).

    About the WES report I really don't know how it would work... I don't know if you'd be able to have both evaluations on your CAAPID application, best thing here would be calling and asking them directly.

    Good luck.

    I was partially wrong! I checked CAAPID website and they have stated that you can either send original ECE report and if you don't have it you can send a notarized one. You can check the below link to find what all is needed for CAAPID application. CAAPID application seems complicated at first but if you go through all guidelines then it's very easy and convenient. All the best.

    hope4 - As u mentioned, UIC gives importance to US dentist LOR- can u please tell me if its ok to have an undated one? i mean there is no date on the letter that the dentist has given me. Or should i go back and ask her to date it? do schools have a problem with this?
    thanks.

    I had submitted a LOR that didnt have date.but that LOR was from my country..US dental professionals usually put dates on LOR..& in case if you dont have date,dont worry..So far I havnt faced any problem.

I am still waiting to submit CAAPID.. all my records still have to get to them plus writing SOP. I wish VCU app did not have such an early deadline! I won't be able to write Part 2 in time =(.

    Log in to your ETS TOEFL account, click on (register for a test / order score report)
    click on TOEFL services, choose( send additional score reports to institutions), select the test date, enter institution code which is (The University of Illinois at Chicago institution code with ETS is 001851).this is from UIC site .(when i entered it it only took 4 numbers 1815) select grduate uic then for the department i chose biological sciences , then department dentistry then pay for it ((this is what i did any thing different just correct me)

    Thanx,I knew this process however I called ETS and asked them regarding this issue.They told me that UIC must first send them an email and then ETS will contact us for payment and other part of this process.I think this process must be easier than what I heard from ETS. I'm so confused.
