    Someone on SDN said they were rejected from Boston U for this current cycle. I haven't even heard that they wanted their application fee $$ from me yet and my app was mailed out from AADSAS back on July 10. Schools received it by July 17. Anyone else have this?

    I didn't get anything either. I called them a couple of days ago to check to see if they received all my stuff. All they told me was: "Unfortunately, I can't tell you that now, but when we do receive your application we will email you.:confused:

    I still have not heard from BU either my mail or email.

    My AADSAS application was mailed to all schools on July 21st.

    I would think BU would process the applications quickly.

    I already have dental schools emailing me, telling me to download a secondary application,...or mailing me secondary applications in the mail.

    Does BU email you to send them a secondary processing fee? Or do they mail you a packet with the secondary/supplemental application?

    Well, on AADSAS under the "Dental Schools Supplemental Info" section, it says this for Boston:

    Send these materials to the dental school only when an admissions officer contacts you:
    Application fee $60.00 U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents; $90.00 International Applicants
    Wallet size photograph

    So are we supposed to send it after getting that empty email? I sent them an email asking but so far no response.

    I just got a new email from Boston that has all the information the other empty email left out. There is a link to pay the secondary fee online, or you can mail a check.

    I haven't gotten anything from BU. I called them this morning and they said no e-mails have been sent to any applicants. They also said no applications have been looked at and they won't begin until September. This sounds odd considering people on SDN have gotten @bu.edu e-mails.

    I sent my app to BU on the 17th of July and I haven't heard from them either. Strange...I know UIC doesn't start reviewing till September so maybe that's when BU does too

    I think if you haven't gotten any emails from BU, just wait a bit and you will. I sent my app in really early and it was mailed out in the first batch. If you have gotten an empty non-link email, email her back and ask, and she should email you the right one w/ actual info. And no, Lucass, the 2nd email I got did not have a link to the secondary, it only requested payment.

    This is the link that everybody gets in the email, you just put your AADSAS ID and pay the fee online. The rest of the email is not really important, it just says that everyone needs to send DAT scores, and letters of rec and stuff

    I also just got the blank email, but in the title of the message there's supposed to be a link to an address. It looked like the end just got cut off right at the .h, so I just added in the .html and it led me to a site to pay. Was there supposed to be anything else in the email besides this link? What address do you send the photo to?

    I also got BU e-mail today, there was 2 empty one, and only 1 that actually have the link and instructions inside, hmm.....

    Anyway, in the e-mail it didnt mention anything about photo, but on the AADSAS schools instruction page, says we need send photo when they contact us, so do we just go ahead send it to them????

    I just emailed Ms. Weber (who sent out all those emails) and she said "A photo is not required this year. Can you please tell me where you got that information, so I can change it?" Hope this helps!

    correction: Ms. Weber said that photos are only required if you are granted an interview. So I gather they will ask for a photo only if we are granted interviews so I guess just wait until they ask for one. Just wanted to clarify my last post!

    Yes, I got that email from BU today.

    The first email had all the information including the website where you can pay the application processing fee. You just enter your AADSAS # and your credit card number and other pertinent information.

    The next "two" emails from BU were blank! LOL! Something wrong with their software? :laugh:

    Good question! I forgot that the AADSAS website said that we should sent BU a passport-sized photo of ourselves as one of the requirements.

    Hmmm, I guess I will call them on Monday and ask the admissions office about that.

    That's strange as the online pay system should work 24 hours a day.

    When I submitted my payment yesterday, it was 7:30PM Eastern Time.

    Perhaps your AADSAS number is not yet placed into their computer database yet?

    Best thing is to call them next week.

    That was fast. Just got the full e-mail with all the application informtaion and link to payment page. Must be a screw up with their system.

    PS - The e-mail says "We have received your electronic application from the Associated American Dental Schools Application Service (AADSAS)". Guess some schools do look online.

    It looks like BU has made a lot of money this year...Isn't it kind of funny how willing we are to keep handing money out with no guarantee of getting in?? I think I'll open up a dental school. Will you all send me $65. I promise to at least send you a nice thank you note on some nice stationary.
