    Hello. Can anyone please give me some information on the Baylor Post Bacc. Is it only open to Texas residents? Is it competitive (assuming the applicant is disadvantaged)? Any other useful info?

    I'm not sure which specific program you are referring to but here is a link with some contact information: http://www.tambcd.edu/research/officeofresearch.html

    If that doesn't help you might try calling the admissions office number which is 214-828-8231. I know that the people at Baylor are wonderful and will gladly help you with any questions that you have. I'm not sure about admissions into the program in question, but I do know that they admit very few out of state students into the DDS program. Hope this helps.

    There was a pretty good thread about the post-bacc program last year. You might try a search... and I think the program is only open to Texas residents. The program only accepts around 8 people I think...

    It is for Texas residents that have applied to Baylor Dental school before and not accepted. A total of 16 people are accepted...and from last years post, most of them BUT NOT ALL have a Masters degree. If you're accepted, you're pretty much accepted into their dental school for the following year. You have to score an 18 after the DAT prep course, and maintain a GPA of at least 3.25 in the courses that they recommend you take (at UTD or UNT) and you're in for sure! I'm applying for this cycle! Hope it helps!

    There hasn't been any activity on this thread for a few weeks...
    Has anyone who applied heard anything back from Baylor? I know apps just closed on Friday...Ms Sneed informed me that they would be contacting candidates anytime within the next week and a half or so...Hopefully someone will hear something soon!!

    I applied there too. I called Ms. Sneed last week and she told me that they have received 70 applications so im guessing the numbers might have gone up little bit by the dead line. I keep checking my emails to see if i got their email. Hoping for the best. :)

    I spoke to Ms Sneed on Monday of last week. She informed me that the adcoms would be reviewing and offering interviews within about a week and a half.....but now I wonder....is it a week and a half from the time applications close, including spring break? or a week and a half after spring break??? Hmmm

    I'm new here! I applied to the Baylor Past Bacc Program and I have an interview on Wednesday. Natasha called me while at work last Friday morning. I'm so stoked! I'm assuming that there are 6 people interviewing on that date because she gave me two different times in the morning.:D

    I applied to this program and submitted my application Monday, March 9th. I believe my application to be competitive, but I have yet to receive a phone call regarding an interview date. I called the office and was told that Natasha will return my call tomorrow morning (i called at 4:50pm after reading this post). For those who read this, please give input as to when you submitted your application and if you have received an interview date. Please keep this thread active in order to inform the community of any good news. Thanks! :):D;):p

    My friend applied to it last year and was told if you get an interview your chances of getting in are super high since they don't interview many people. Hopefully we'll be getting that call soon!

    i applied in early feb when the application was available so i am guessing they recieved all the required documents by mid feb. I am not hundred percent sure but when i spoke to Natasha she was talking something about that the only students who have so far recieved a call are the ones who applied last year too.

    Hey everyone, I submitted my application in late February and had an interview today (Monday). As far as I know they are interviewing on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of this week and don't know whether or not they will continue next week. They mentioned that they had received around 70-75 applications and would be taking the 16. They also mentioned that they wanted to let us know quickly in order for people to make arrangements whether they were accepted or not. That is about all they let us know. Good luck to everyone who has applied and let us know if more interviews occur next week.

    hey all, i also applied to this program this year. i submitted mine a few days before due date (due to teacher taking forever on the LOR.) i thought my app was well qualified but i havent gotten any calls yet =( i was sad to see that others have received calls, was hoping adcoms didnt start meeting yet lol. but good luck to those who have gotten interviews...you're SO SO SO lucky! oh yeah, was wondering if they actually send out rejection letters....anyone know?

    i called them this morning and they basically verified that my application is complete..i also mentioned that some of my peers have received interviews and wondered if they were going to continue interviews following this week..i didn't speak directly with Natasha as she was "with a student"..but it would not make any sense if they only interviewed this week..i hope we still have a good shot as my argument would be that they have not had a chance to review all applications....WHO KNOWS?!?! blahhhhhhhhhhhhh

    Hey peeps, i called Natasha this morning and she said they are pretty much done with the interviewing process :eek:, that if Dr. Lacy has the need for more students or if anyone rejects the offer, she'll continue the interviewing process!!!

    Yea....I'm one of the alternates. :( The selection committee selected two alternates. Interviewed 26 applicants, picked 16, 2 alternates and 8 rejections from the interview process. The interview was extremely similar to past dental school interviews. I did not apply to the program last year, so I plan to mimic the post-bacc program this year and apply next. Taking graduate/ upper level sciences rather than re-taking any classes is what I plan to do. Don't give up! Keep on smiling, and everything really does happen for a reason!
