Anyone applying for 2007 and already have interviews?

I noticed in one thread there were a few Texas students that already had interviews..
Is this normal? or a weird Texas thing?

If you have an interview for the 2007 Application Cycle, let us know
post the date and school..

Texas schools start pretty early compared to the rest of the schools. They usually start interviewing in August (the time when the rest of the schools are starting to hand out interviews). I don't think applicants to any other schools have gotten interviews yet. If they did, there'd be dozens of threads saying so by now. ;)

Its a weird Texas thing. Texas residents are required to use the TMDSAS, a separate application service that operates similar to the AADSAS. The application was made available on May 1. And because the deadline for the TMDSAS is Oct 15, interviews generally start early. Just more proof that TX thinks its better than everyone.

And that's because Texas is better than everyone else. 3 top notch dental schools, all of which cost WAYYYYY less than the other "wannabe" schools out there.

Keep telling yourself Texas isn't better, it may buy you some time till you have to start paying back the 300k+ loan you will be taking out elsewhere.

For the 2007 entering class, the AADSAS application service opened up in mid May 2006. People are already sending in their applications and some have already taken the DAT while others are planning to take it in the next few months. Each school has a different deadline for when applications and DAT scores need to be sent in by, but I think you may be a little confused. I think you're thinking about the 2008 entering class? If not, then you should start working on your application because most school deadlines are in early 2007 for the 2007 entering class.

Yea, I think I was just confused. So the 2007 class will be attending their first year of dental school in autumn of 2007 correct?

I am taking my DAT in September and plan on applying May/June 2007 so I would be applying to start dental school in autumn of 2008, correct?

thanks for the quick response

Everything depends on the school you are applying to.

If you are trying to start Autumn 2008, then you would start hearing about interviews at the earliest in August 2007. Acceptances (via mail, phone, email, etc) start showing up in December for some schools, and January for others. Rolling acceptances continue for several months after that.

Dental schools won't usually go hunting down grades for semesters after you apply, but some people will send the schools letters containing new transcripts to show that their GPA improved, and some dental schools will ask for you to send new transcripts as part of the secondary, so you might have to show them that info. If you're asking to know whether you can let your grades start slipping after you hit the send button on AADSAS...I wouldn't...at least not until I had already gotten an acceptance.

Somehow I'm guessing that you aren't going to be too popular with the dental school adcoms...
