I just recently retook the DAT and got a 15 on the reading section but a 20AA & 21TS . Do you think they’ll penalize me especially since the minimum is 16 for reading. I’ve taken the dat exam before this one and got a 18 on reading.
I’ve actually seen posts about people getting into buff with a 16. Multiple even. Still worth a shot.

I’m not entirely sure if they’re one of those schools that enforce score minimums. There is a chance that they might sort you out of the applicant pile since they only consider your most recent score, but if it’s your state school, you might still want to apply

Hey, I'm working on a predent subreddit /r/predent (please subscribe!) and have been working on the minimum requirements for schools. I recall that UBs website stated that the minimum is 16 in all sections, but 15 in all previous takes. I am pretty sure UB has a hard filter on these things, so you might have to retake the DAT. That said, getting a 15 this try then getting all 16's would qualify you to not be filtered out.

I got an email from UBuffalo saying my application is incomplete. I am not worried since my school evaluations didn't register to AADSAS yet so they are not posted but should I reply to the email or contact Buffalo admissions to let them know? Or just leave it and wait a week until my evaluations are posted?

I would just wait. That letter basically just means they got your application and are just waiting until they get your evaluations to start reviewing your application.

Also, they will know once AADSAS receives your evaluations and marks your application as complete.

I don’t think they sent out interviews yet. I called last week and they hadn’t sent them out as of then. Prob this upcoming week or the next.
Last year UB sent out interviews 8/23. Since most deadlines were bumped back 2 weeks this year, I expect this to also be true of interview invites.

I haven't heard anything yet. I'm OOS but I called a few weeks ago and they told me that the interview invites were about two weeks out...which means that hopefully it should be any day now!
They'll likely be sent out right before the weekend. I'm OOS, submitted my app on 08/06 and informed on 08/10 that it's complete and under review
