So I applied in October and haven't heard anything from any of the schools I applied to.


Except USC which said I passed the preliminary review.

I applied to:

USC, Tufts, VCU, UoP, UNLV, Arizona, NYU, Columbia, Boston.


What could this mean?

Do you mind me asking what your GPA and scores are? As well as your most significant ECs/research, dental experience? These factors will somewhat give me an idea of what some of these schools are looking for. Also, are these the only schools you applied to?

You did apply pretty late. I applied during the summer and even I'm getting interview invites for dates in january. I think you will have to keep waiting, hopefully you'll at least get invited to USC & Columbia since they're known for filling the class slower than other schools.

You applied to 9 schools and haven't heard back. I applied to 16 schools last year Oct 14th and didn't hear back from any. This year I applied early to 22 and get 7 interviews. Like the above poster say, procrastination doesn't pay.
