    I interviewed on Jan 13 and haven't heard anything back yet. I keep checking the mail everyday and so far nothing. My wife is starting to get a little antsy.

      I interviewed around the first week of Jan. and I was accepted the same day I interviewed via phone. Got it in the mail a day or two after that... I don't think it's a bad thing you haven't heard yet necessarily though. At the interview they said it took them months to make all their decisions. Good luck to all of you!

        this is slightly off topic but you guys would be perfect for the Q:

        I'm interviewing at ASDOH on Feb. 17th and I need a place to stay. All the hotels in the immediate vacinity are $100+. Any advice on where to stay on a student budget, transportations to/from airport/hotel/interview, etc?????

        I would really appreciate any advice on this and/or the interview itself. Thanks guys,

              I stayed at the La Quinta Inn & Suites which was recommended by the school. It was about $60 per night. Its brand new and actually really nice, about 2 miles from the dental school. And a free shuttle runs between the hotel and campus that can take you to and from your interview which was pretty convenient. I rented a car from the airport to the hotel which costed me about $20-25 per day (got it from expedia.com).

                in order to get the $60 hotel rate though, make sure you say you are there for the dental school interview at ASDOH.

                  Was that a yea or a nay?

                  It was yea (or, should I say, "Yay!"). Sorry I did not indicate that.

                  But don't fret if you don't hear right away, they told me the same thing they told Dane. Dr. Simonsen told us they are going to interview 400 people for the 54 slots, and they had over 2000 apps by the time I interviewed in DEC. I believe I was somewhere around interview #200 (just a guess). They left me with the strong impression that #399 and #400 will get the same consideration that #'s 1, 2, and 3 received.

                  Good luck!

                    I interviewed Oct. 25th, but haven't heard anything yet.


                    I interviewed towards the end of October. At the time they had my first DAT scores., which weren't so great. I retook the DAT on Jan 5, and I'm sure they
                    have the new set of DAT scores.

                    My question is: Did I retake the DAT too late. Do they touch your file once, and then you are out?

                    (By the way the PAT on my first DAT was a 14. That was the lowest score. I dont have the scores in front of me to give you)

                      Nice increase on the PAT, congratulations!! Why don't you give them a call and see if they could consider you again since you re-took the DAT? I would do this if you are seriously considering going to AZ.

                        Ditto. It will let them know you are still interested, and bring notice to your improved scores.

                        Good luck!

                          does anyone know what the group activity during the interview is about? and what kinda questions do they ask?? thankS!!!!!

                          You watch a short clip about a helicopter crash in a blizzard and you need to rank items 1-10 in order of importance. (You and your friends are involved in the crash) I am not sure what criteria they are looking at during this part (leadership/working as a group) You, individiually rank the items and then you rank them as a group. Good luck.
