    So I saw a big envelope in the mail today from U. of Detroit Mercy and thought it would be an interview invite but alas it was just a big folder full of info. Anyone else get this? Has anyone gotten interviews from them?

    I got the same thing...talk about cruel. Did you fill out the open house card and send it in? I think it might be tied to that.

    I got the same too. I read it three times. I thought maybe I missed the "you have been invited for an interview" line and I looked in the envelope couple times, thinking maybe the invite is stuck in the envelope or something.

    I almost Sharded myself when I saw the envelope!

    Then it turned out to be an information packet.

    I had an interview there a few weeks ago. The interview invite comes in a small business envelope, just so you know..

    I got the same huge envelope. I too was thinking the invitation letter is left out of the folder.

    Does anyone else find the contents of the folder a bit out of place?? there is no interview invite, yet there are directions to the school. There is also info on how to prepare for the DAT.

    I think this is just bad. I have receieved so far 8 envelopes from UDM and everytime I check it is something different that what I am expecting. Mostly Thin letters telling me what is missing from my file. I got the same letter 3 times in 3 days telling me my letter from Dentsit is missing. Now what the hell is this. Anyway, I was really excited but after I opened the packet it was just information no invitation. Anyway some of us might get an Acceptance before the UDM interview. Good Luck to All.

    Here's some info I got from them during my interview:

    I was told that they will interview about 60 people and accept ~45 by December 1st. However, their class is something like 75-78 students, so they will be interviewing a lot more people after December. So just hang in there...theyve hardly interviewed anyone thus far, so I'd expect alot more interviews to be granted after the holidays.

    UDM sends soooooooo much ****!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The best part was the huge packet I got from them back in December. Inside the packet was a booklet and a way to sign up and take the TOEFL exam (for foreign students) but I graduated from a university in California!!!!!

    Also, they send me a admission info page and highlighted the area that says that admission look negatively at long academic absences. I finished undergad and then went on to a masters program that I am finishing up right now!!!!!!!!!

    Thank god i withdrew, no more of their SPAM!

    UDM is ridiculously behind in terms of the admissions process compared to other schools. I was told by their office that they will be holding interviews through June! They cashed my app fee in September, then in mid - late November I got a letter saying that they hadn't received my app fee. I can't figure out what their deal is.
