    Do Schools Usually Formally Reject You or Leave You 'Under Review"

    Hey people, Do most dental programs formally reject people they aren't interested in? Or do the vast majority just leave you 'under review' until the cycle is over? Thanks

    Open house for programs that do not interview

    I have been accepted into a DPT program that does not hold interviews; however, they do hold open houses monthly. I plan on attending a session to get a feel for the program before I make any decisions, but I was wondering if there were certain things I should look out for during the open house?

    Error on Background Check

    I had to fill out a Certiphi background screening after acceptance and it came back as expected except it said I had an "alias" (it's my name but spelled incorrectly). There's no criminal history listed for it, so I'm guessing this isn't an issue, just wanted to see if anyone had experienced...

    Continue Volunteering after an Acceptance?

    Social Media + Decision process

    When does ICO notify you of acceptance?

    So I have an interview at ICO on Oct 18th and was wondering how soon they will let me know if I'm accepted or not. I got accepted into SCCO and have to pay a deposit by Oct. 22nd, so I'm hoping they let me know early because these are my top 2 schools.
