SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hey SDN, Like you, I received the following message; "11/16/2012 : Dear ADEA AADSAS Applicant: You are now eligible to participate in the 2013 ADEA AADSAS Academic Update (AU). You can begin the Academic Update only after your ADEA AADSAS application has been mailed to your designated dental schools. All applications complete for at least one designation on or before January 17th, 2013 will become eligible for the Academic Update. " Are we required to submit an update to our coursework + transcripts or is this optional?
