Hey guys,

Quick question, I just interviewed at Buffalo last week. Has anyone heard anything back from them yet? Also, for those who didnt get accepted on dec 1st, what was your status?

ps i received a thank you letter from them today, did anyone else get one?

thanks

I interviewed on the 5th and haven't heard anything, so I'm supposed to be hearing back by this Friday if the 2-week-wait they told us was accurate. I did get that lovely thank you email as well; I thought it was really nice of them, it's only school I've gone to which has done something like that.

No,

What day did you interview? I was there Friday...they told us that we can expect to hear as early as Wednesday. They told us it would come in the mail, but most likely be up on AADSAS prior. They said that you would either be designated as: 1) accepted 2) waitlisted 3) denied....and if you were waitlisted the only thing that would change your status would be new semester grades or new DAT scores which confused me a little.

However, looking at past posts, all of the people accepted on December 1st were notified by email so seems so who knows....I am really nervous, buff is my first choice. good luck to you

Nope, no thank you letter.

and I think it's worth analyzing this one.

Chances

Accepted>Waitlisted>Post December interviewees>No Decision>Rejected



Waitlisted>Post December interviewees>No decision

Do you think this is correct?

Anyway, I think the order can be changed based on my predent.com analysis.

(Hopely, I want to focus on Columbia for me and Buffalo for OP)

no word from buffalo yet... .. bump

yea I interviewed last thursday. They told me the same thing about acceptances, but I didn't know they would get back to us as early as Wed. I thought they'd get back to us in 2 weeks. But Im starting to get worried beacause the people who interviewed 2 weeks ago dont seem to be responding to this thread... are they placed on the waitlist? I dread that thing, I only hear bad things about it.

For those that went on interviews, did they tell you how many spots they had left? My interview isn't until the end of Jan. and I'm getting really worried that it'll be full before I even get there.

They didnt tell us how many spots exactly... someone in our interview actually asked this question directly. The reply was that, currently, the class is by no means filled.

My friend was on continuing review like 2 months ago and then he got an interview invite. His interview was today. Coninuing review doesnt mean anything, it just says that they havent offered you an interview yet but they may in the future. My buddies stats werent all that great either.

All that great compared to yours or to the average? ha ha :)
Thanks, I hope we all get an interview....

Buf was my 2nd top choice... until my state school didn't want me... now its my top. I'm really hoping to hear from them at some point. Close to home... reminds me of cleveland... ahh yess :)

Interviewed Dec 5, found out via AADSAS today (Dec 18) that I was waitlisted. Bummer. Looks like I'm destined to spend the rest of my life in Jersey. I'll be depositing at NJDS as soon as I can scrounge up $1000. I was pretty sure I bombed my UB interview, so I'll take wait list over a rejection any day. :cool:

I think no matter what my stats were, I screwed myself in my interview. First off, I traveled with my father who is a smoker and my f'n suit reeked of smoke even though it had been in a suit bag far away from his seat - I was so pissed. I asked another interviewee if it smelled and she assured me it didn't but I am sure she was just being nice. Smoke-stench suit is never a good impression. Secondly, when they asked me where I see myself in x years, I said (which I have said at EVERY school) "Well, I realize that I may change my mind in d-school once I've had actual hands on experience, but at this point in time I am interested in pursuing a pediactric residency--" at which point I was cut off and lectured on how I'm applying to d-school, not pedes school, and then a next question was asked before I could refute the interviewer's shpiel. I planned on finishing my statement by talking about the tremendous flexibility of d-school and how I realize I don't have a solid idea of where I'll end up but I know no matter what I do within the field that I'll be enjoying my job and life and bleh bleh bleh. I realize you're 'not supposed' to say you're interested in specializing but I saw no reason to lie to adcoms and this type of question/answer led to good conversation with my interviewers at 3 other schools so I figured I'd stick to what had worked in the past --- and it didn't. I'm just stoked that I was wait listed and not rejected lol. I hope to get in off that wait list if I don't end up getting into Stony. But if I don't, oh well, I'll still become a dentist at NJDS.

... So I think if you didn't basically stick your foot in your mouth on your interview like I did, you should be fine.

I interviewed at stony also, did they get back to you? They told me that since I interviewed post dec 1st, that I am under their rolling umbrella and that the earliest I'd even hear a word is around Jan 15th.

He's a shoe-in for Canadian schools so it's all good.
