Do they only send them out to select people? My app was complete on 6/13 and I didn’t get an email to set up my portal weird
not sure. paid the secondary fee on 6/2 if that helps you out. haven't heard other people talking about the secondary either. as soon as they let me in, I'll be able to tell you what all it entails haha

Edit: finally let me in; there are essays. you need to submit a passport style photo as well

6/21 is when i got the email that said:
"Your application has been processed and your admissions file has been forwarded to the Committee on Dental Recruitment and Admissions for review.

Due to the volume of applications that we receive, we respectfully request that you do not contact our office to check on the status of your application at this time. Our office will contact you if additional information is required.

Sincerely,

The Office of Admissions

University of Maryland School of Dentistry"

I submitted my app on 5/30 at midnight and it got verified the next day. It's very early in the cycle, so there will probably be more supplemental invites sent out this week and in the next weeks as well.

Hello everyone!
I submitted my application the day AADSAS opened. As of now, I have only received 3 emails from UMD:

University of Maryland School of Dentistry- AADSAS Application Received (June 2)

Confirmation of App Fee/DAT Scores (June 2)

University of Maryland School of Dentistry- AADSAS Application Processed (June 5)

Is anyone else a bit confused???
Should I contact the school why they have not sent me the supplemental email yet??

from my understanding, maryland doesn't send supplementals to everyone. It's the next step in their process to receiving an interview. I thought everyone got a supplemental after submitting payment, but they don't do it this way according to reddit. So this could be why you're confused. If I'm wrong, someone please correct me, but that is what I was told.

Try to be patient! Some schools take a little longer to send their supplementals. Some are also invite-only (ex. Maryland), therefore you don’t want to seem like you’re nagging the admissions office. I know it’s a stressful process though, but you got this!

It’s crazy when your stats are well above the schools average along with an extensive resume and schools don’t recognize that. 😫 but i know it’s still early in the process and I need to be patient 🙏🏼🙏🏼

For those who received the supplemental essays Aug 7th, have you gotten an interview yet?
 
They sent me two emails on June 28th saying that they received my application and verified my DAT scores but I just got an email today saying that my application was processed. Does anyone know why the processing of my application was so delayed?

First off, congrats! Second, yes that is usually a good sign and it precedes an interview invite. This is speaking out of experience as a re-applicant to Maryland, I got my interview invite a week or two after sending over my supplementary app. May I ask when did you originally send out your apps? Mine went out in mid-July this year in case you are curious.
