This has been the only school I applied to and have heard nothing from, even after calling their offices repeatedly they can't divulge any sort of information other than that my application has been complete since the beginning of july.
What is the status on that school? I'm guessing since i never heard back from them even to get waitlisted that I have no shot, b/c I never interviewed. please let me know if anyboyd has any information on this school

WVU is FULL from what I heard as they only have like 35 spots and tons of WVians applied this year and supposedly they had an 'above average' year so I imagine that next year will be very difficult to get into as well.

Bummer.

were you a west virginia resident when you applied ???

I know they screw out of staters big time. THEY TOOK IN LIKE 600 applications last year from out of staters and only interviewed 8 of them.

Thats crazy and a true rip off if you ask me !!!

I'm not a WV resident, and I did get a phone call from them about 3 weeks ago inviting me for an interview, but they stressed that it would only be for a spot on the alternate list.

Honestly, and definitely not to discourage you, if you are an out of state student I wouldnt bother.

I think they took 8 last year out of the 600 that applied. If you got an interview with them then you must be very exceptional and if that is the case you can get into a better school anyways.

Unfortunately, WVU is not a great dental school and the facilities are very outdated. I think this reflects the overall atmosphere of the state. The schools cut back every year and it seems that things just get worse and worse there.
