    congratz!! guys!
    so, midwestern updates aadsas status?
    I have my interview there on Jan 6. and they've never updated anything on aadsas, it's been totally blank... So, is aadsas update only for the acceptance? i guess..

    mine is still blank.

    Did you guys have "interview" before? or was it blank and then to offer made?

    Mine has always been blank. Nothing ever from Midwestern was posted. I interviewed in late october

    What's going on ???

    Thanks man! and congrats! you deserved to be going crazy about this moment!:thumbup:

    yeah..it seems they only update on aadsas for the acceptance. if you did pre dec 1st interview and your status is still blank..that's not a good sign..I think. But don't lose your hope yet! you might get a call tomorrow!! GL!!

    Are you genuinely excited even though you're going to be paying very high tuition, or just glad to get in somewhere?

    Im in CA but no update...I would think that the update would be based upon the time zone of the dental school, not the interviewees...am I wrong to assume that?

    I hope I'm wrong...so that theres still two more hours to get an update!

    For us that still have a blank I just talked to admissions. All acceptances have already been updated. Rejections and wait listed should be updated later today. Good luck to those like me hoping to get on the wait list.

    So the class is already full? They are only going to make waitlist acceptances now?

    Were they kind to you on the phone or were they agitated? I'm thinking about calling.

    Thanks for the info!

    Only the acceptance spots for predec 1st have been given. I expect that they have spots still available for people put on waiting list and interviewed after today. I am merely saying if you hoping to get an acceptance today and havent gotten one its not going to change today.

    Thanks! So if you interviewed pre-dec 1st and didn't receive an acceptance then you only have a shot at waitlist or rejection? They won't extend 2nd round acceptances to pre-dec 1st interviewees?

    Were they kind on the phone?

    Best of luck to you!

    I think you are thinking way too far into it. If you don't have an acceptance or a rejection by the end of the day you will go back into the pool plus all the other people who interview after today and the rest of the spots in the class will be filled from there.

    You are never out for good until you have a rejection notice.

    Something to keep in mind when you are calling MWU. The people you are talking to over the phone are the office assistants, not the admissions committee which are basically our Dean, and couple of our dental faculty. The office assistants aren't even part of the "Dental of College Medicine". The admissions office at MWU is used by all the programs (Medical, Pharmacy, Dental, etc) on our campus. The office assistants have no say in your file.

    If I recall, they try to fill up around 60 - 70% of the class with the acceptances they sent out today. The other spots will be filled with the people on the waitlist, and the other people they are interviewing in January through possibly March.

    As long as you don't get a formal rejection letter your still in the game, its just a big waiting game from now till around the end of January which will be the deadline for the people who got acceptances today.

    Best of lucks to all of you!

    Since Midwestern is an expensive private school the chances of getting in off the waitlist will be relatively high. I know of a bunch of kids who sent their deposit to Midwestern and then backed out a few months later when they got other offers. Keep your heads up!

    Thanks for the positive note. I was wondering if you can clarify something for me: the waitlist? If I interviewed pre-Dec. 1st and was not offered an acceptance today, am I either placed on the waitlist or rejected? Is it possible that if I'm not rejected that I'm considered in the "2nd round" of acceptances rather than being on the waitlist. To me the waitlist seems like they would take you only after their 1st, 2nd and 3rd round acceptances have declined admission and there are still seats open. Which is the correct view of the waitlist?

    Thanks!

    Just because you didn't receive an acceptance today it does not signify a rejection. December 1st is just the beginning of when all the dental schools can officially give out acceptances.

    From what I remember last year, people were also getting rejection letters starting in december as well.

    I think for everyone that didn't get an acceptance letter today (and for the people that didn't/wont get rejected) your basically all placed on a waiting list in some sort of ranked order. As soon as that deadline in January arrives, the higher you are on that waiting list, most likely you'll get accepted in the 2nd round. Now whether or not they give preference over someone from the waiting list vs someone with a post-Dec. 1st interview (or vice versa) I have no clue, and I don't think anyone can tell you that accept the admissions committee. But I do know they did take pre-dec 1st interview people off the waiting list during the 2nd round of acceptances.

    I know some people didn't get off the waiting list till like May, even though they interviewed in October. So as I mentioned, as long as you don't get a rejection letter, you still have hope!!

    Also I remember last year, people that are on the waiting list, they got some sort of letter stating that they were on the waiting list during the first 2 weeks of December.

    Especially with the economy these days, people that got accepted into MWU, but also get accepted into their state school later, most likely they will choose the state school for the cheaper tuition. So this should help out all the waitlisted people.

    For those of you waiting for a call, you may get one yet. I had to give up my seat for 2013. The Army has denied my release to go to dental school until I finish my current service obligation in 2011. I thought the deferment would help, but apparently the Army needs helicopter pilots more than dentists. Good luck to the rest of you.

    I am sorry to hear that!!!
    BUT thanks for your early decision and notice.
    For those who are in the alternate list, please don't make a deposit or withdraw it if you decide to go somewhere else.
