    Seeming that we're already halfway through November, how many more interview invitations do schools send out?? I was a late applicant, and my application didn't get sent out unti late september. I have one interview with Temple, and a Alternate List interview with Case. Do many other school's hand out interviews after December 1st, or should we be expecting the rest of the interview invitations to come within the next couple of weeks??? After applying to over 10 schools, I feel like i threw my money away. What schools should we expect more interview invitations from? :scared: Also, do most schools fill up the majority (or atleast 2/3) of the class after the December 1st acceptance batch?

    I sure hope that more interviews are going to be sent out. I've only gotten two interviews out of 19 schools! :oops:

    When did your application get sent out by AADSAS? And what are your stats - if you don't mind me asking?

    I only have 2 interviews scheduled out of the 9 schools i applied to.

    When i called UMDNJ, they said that they will continue with more interviews in Feb. :confused:

    But I hope we get more interviews coming.

    When's your interview date for Temple? I think we're getting the shaft on these interviews. It sucks to spend soooooooooo much money for the application cyce and only get 2 interviews. Doesn't Temple interview students regardless if their interested in accepting them or not? I heard Temple interviews all the way into march even if their class is full :eek:

    i'm not sure if they interview with those intentions, sure doesn't seem like it from the letter i received. It said only a select group of applicants get interviews, but still it's by no means a guarantee of acceptance. My date is on Jan. 31st, what about you?

    it seems like most schools take a break on interviewing btwn dec. 15th or so and jan 15th. THis is probaly for the winter break and it allows them to give 30-45 days to the people accepted on or after dec. 1.

    I hope you're right man, cause I'm getting pretty nervous. Good luck to everyone. Hopefully we'll get some acceptances from schools that don't require interviews on dec 1st. :thumbup:

    Besides NYU, what schools don't require interviews to be accepted?? Do Dental schools generally hand out more invitations after Dec 1?

    Don't worry, I'm sure a lot of schools are still sending out interview letters. During most of my interviews, the schools emphasized that they want to give equal opportunity to late applicants so we should be patient even if we are not contacted with an acceptance or rejection letter in the beginning of Dec.
