    The title speaks for itself. I just got one yesterday. Just wanted to see if anyone else is in my boat? It's a very sad and lonely boat!

    Sorry to hear the bad news. I interviewed there Decemeber 7th, I haven't heard anything yet. Would you mind telling me when you interviewed there? Thanks and don't lose hope. All you need is one school to say yes.

    It's such a nice letter too isn't it? They don't wish you luck with your application at other schools or wish you luck in dentistry. They just wish you luck in your future career field. It's like they are saying - you all really suck and I hope you don't ever get into any dental school.

    I'm still a little pissed off that they made me waste so much money to go down there just to be rejected within a week (see avatar).

    I was wondering if anyone got the electronic greeting card from Arizona? I got one, but I couldn't view the card and the link was not there either. Just wanted to know if anyone one else had this? Thanks and merry christmas!

    Hahaha I got mine the other day too. SHORT and SIMPLE. Hopefully it'll be the ONLY rejection letter. Maybe they thought we were just too good for them and they were afraid we'd end up rejecting them. :D

    I never had an interview. Their letter said 'we're not going to invite you for an interview'. Yes, it was short and simple. Two REALLY short paragraphs.

    Although I'm bummed, I guess it's okay because I've interviewed with some other schools. Hopefully someone will take me...

    I got their season greeting card. I interviewed there Dec. 14th and I guess still under consideration since I have not heard anything.

    Got back from a business trip to find Arizona's rejection letter waiting in ambush. Never interviewed. Secondary app dated 12/1/05.

    I'm in the same boat. Got a rejection w/o an interview. At least I didn't waste the money on the trip down there.

    I didn't get a rejection letter but when I looked at my AADSAS application, it is marked "Received/Application Denied".

    I guess that about sums it up.

    Still waiting for the official, "You Suck" letter.

    :( :( :( :( :(

    I also got a sad, short and depressing rejection letter in mail. Do you guys think it is a good idea to call them and ask why? :idea:

    I think it is reasonable to call and ask why. They will probably tell you how you could strengthen your application. Maybe you lack something you have never thought of. Also if you reapply next year you will have found out whether you should even apply there again. Good luck
