I have a 3.81 GPA and 23 DAT score. The only thing is that I wasn't able to finish sending in my application until mid July. I realize that isn't the earliest date to submit, but it isn't late right? I know a lot of schools haven't sent out Interview emails yet, but a couple I have applied to have, and I didn't get an interview. Do schools send out more then round round of interview invites?

Your stats will likely get you an interview. These schools are rolling admission. Interviews will be sent out in batches. I don't know if this matters, but I sent out my application in late July. 1 interview so far.

For people who have already interviewed, how do you suggest you structure the answer to the question, "tell me about yourself"
I never know where to begin with that one :laugh:

I would say, “Hello, I’m futureddsyancy. I have a major in Health Sciences with a 2nd major/minor in Biology. I love doing (list a couple of hobbies) in my free time, and I’m excited to be here today!” It’s not too long, not too short, they know your education and have gotten to know you personally.

Will dental schools tell you if they are no longer considering your application/puting you on a waiting list?

almost every school will not
a few will notify you right away, and another few will let you know on the dec acceptance date
