Hi everyone,

I'm really stressing out about my application status!!!:(:(

I'm planning on submitting my application on July 24 (this Friday)

And taking my DAT on August 25 or 26

Does this eliminate me from the first cycle of interviews???

Do I still have a decent shot!!

Thank you everyone

I really don't know. If you can fax your unofficial scores to schools after you take it you might make it in the first cycle. Since AADSAS was pushed back to JUNE 1st everything might get pushed back. I guess we will see, I hope that for your sake it gets you in the first wave. I would recommend getting any supplementary apps and money sent into schools now, so all they will be waiting on are your DAT scores.

It doesnt eliminate you but it puts you at a major disadvantage compared to someone who is early. Your application wont be viewed until after your DAT for most schools which is right before the "early" deadline. Depending on your stats, you may just get less interviews when compared to you applying in June.

Ok, what if schools have everything but are just waiting on DAT scores? All my stuff is in, and I'm going to take DAT at end of august. Will I still be ok for pre-december interviews??

You might have a chance for pre december interviews if you rock the DAT.

You'll still be towards the end of the "early" deadline and I know most schools wont look at your application until they have received your DAT scores so your application will be at the bottom until then and some schools dish out invites for interviews by end of august. You might get some but prolly a lot less when compared to applying with the same stats in june.

This is like asking the weatherman to predict the weather. Who knows what your GPA is. What you will get on the DAT. The first wave of interview from Nova have started to go out. Look at predents when people submitted and when they received their first interviews. Interviews will still be going on well into November and throughout Jan/Feb. Patience my friend, it's a long ride.

There is no "official" end of early deadline. Many dental schools recommend you apply in June/July so that they can receive all your application materials by August. If you look on most school's websites, they state this and also that admissions is on a rolling basis, meaning the earlier you submit, the better. VCU has already started sending out emails that applications have been complete and will be under review, so it could be a matter of weeks or even days before they start sending out interview invitations.

It all depends on the school. My file was complete in mid july. But i heard from some schools later in the cycle while most of them responded by august end or September beginning.

Who knows, they might find something about you that really sticks out. Plus, kind of a side NOTE but I know that TMDSAS isn't rushing us as much as AADSAS.

Well I want to be well prepared before I take the DAT...so I don't have much choice but to take it in August.

Anymore feedback, anyone?
