    does any of you have problem uploading your personal statement to PASS. For some reason, it keeps saying "The page you have requested does not exist on this site." when i try to submit my PS.

    Got a 92 woot woot. Hopefully it plays a decent role in my app. I know some programs don't look at ADAT all that much.

    I had chance to talk to a program director. I think they just use it to retrospectively "study" the correlation between ADAT and their residents' performance for now. im surprised that only 113 took it...

    Did you really study for the exam though, geewizz...I study for it, but the damn thing leaves my brain so fast. I took 2 weeks off from study and I almost forgot half of what I learnt.

    This is probably a dumb question, but when some programs say that they want your board scores sent straight to them from ada, are they referring to the actual numerical value even tho board scores r p/f now?

    I believe they just want to know whether you passed or not considering whether you took them when they changed to p/f

    As I understand it, you need to request an official score report be sent to the school. It'll be something like $35 per score report request.

    I noticed that UMKCs website says that ADAT scores should be self reported on the PASS App. I think I saw this requested on another school that requires it but can't remember for sure.

    Where is the appropriate place to self report our scores? I was going to upload a screen shot of my scores but can't find a space to do that.
    Will our June 15th scores be uploaded to the STATUS page? As of today, my scores are not listed.

    So does that score report just say "pass" or do they see an actual value even though boards are p/f now?
     
  19. Big Time Hoosier

    It would just say pass.

    Has anyone else had trouble getting their institution eval done? I graduated a few years ago so I'm not anywhere near my dental school now. I sent them the request on May 18 and my PASS application has been otherwise complete since May 30. Several programs have emailed me reminding me that my application isn't complete because of the institution eval. I emailed the dean of student affairs 2 weeks ago and she said she'd try to get it done. Still nothing though. I know they have to do a ton of those for everyone applying through PASS but I can't believe it's taking this long. Just curious if I'm the only one having this problem...

    I was in the same situation last year during the application process. It took forever to get those completed and it got to the point where I had to constantly nag them about it until they got it done. Keep harassing them until they do it just to get you off their back.

    My IEF was just completed. There was an issue with mine not being completed correctly by the university. They were able to fix it pretty quickly. I agree with awalke12- just keep contacting them until it's complete.

    So I've already submitted my application but then added a new evaluator. Is there no way to have this new evaluation sent to the schools I've already applied for? It doesn't seem to give me that option.

    I called PASS today and basically they told me that if you didn't already specify the evaluator before applying then there is no way to go back and add them. They told me that now you have to have it sent to all of the schools individually, which I really think is ludicrous. I mean how can I ask someone who is already going out of their way to do an evaluation to then go and send it to 10 or more schools? And how do you even do that in a secure way and ensure it's received properly? I don't understand the reasoning because say you already specified someone and they hadn't competed the evaluation yet but you already submitted, then surely PASS still has to get their evaluation to the schools right? I mean what's the difference? Does anybody else have any input or suggestions?

    I believe most schools are OK with you sending the sealed letters to them. You can ask your evaluators to send like 10 copies to you and then you mail the letters out yourself. Michigan is the only exception, they are so strict about everything

    I will give schools that participated in PASS and dont require random secondary more "desirable" score when interview time comes. PASS while expensive makes the application process more tolerable. For schools that don't participate in PASS, I had to call one of them like 10 times to make sure that my application was correctly filed.

    I finally got the institution evaluation submitted after seriously ruffling some feathers at the dental school. Feels great to have the application complete....now time to sit back and wait to hear. UTSA sent me an email saying that they would be contacting applicants after July15th for interviews. Last year they interviewed early August I think so I'm guessing most programs will be giving 2-3 weeks advanced notice for interviews from the looks of it.

    This may be a dumb question, but how do you guys plan to handle the travel arrangements for interviews? For those going through the match process, they will obviously just buy plane tickets and go to every interview. For endo thought it's a totally different ball game. It's looking like I could have an interview on a Thursday, Friday, and Monday all basically back to back. I'm thinking optimistically here, but lets say I get accepted to the interview on Thursday so I wouldn't be going to the others. I wonder if airlines would even allow me to cancel a flight with that short of notice and still get a refund or credit. Second thought is, if I have plane tickets for the next interview but got accepted at a program already and still would like to interview at the next place. I'm just curious if anyone has some great advice on how to handle this stuff. This is all new to me...
