Hi, I also applied this cycle! I know they schedule interviews "between May and June" so I'm getting a little anxious because I haven't heard back at all. Have you heard anything back yet?

Hey, I got my rejection email on May 13. Below is the content of the email. I hope it helps.
You should contact them for an update on your application status. Keep me updated if you don't mind.

"Hello,


We would like to thank you again for your interest in our program. After a comprehensive review of all applications, we regret to inform you that you will not be granted an interview for one of the positions within the 2016-17 UCLA Dental Post-Baccalaureate Program.


It cannot be stressed enough that this decision is not a reflection of your potential to be successful within our program (or by extension dental school). Rather, it is a reflection of the highly competitive pool of applicants we encountered during this cycle.


The effort invested in your application is truly appreciated, and we wish you success in your journey to gain acceptance to dental school."
