    Congrats! I'm glad you're starting to see the interest you deserve. BTW, you most likely got rejected from OSU because you applied so late - if you waited a year and applied again in June you'd be a shoe-in, so just keep that in mind if things don't work out this year or if you want to take a year off :):thumbup:

    PM sent. Hope it lifts your spirits! My GPA is right around yours. :)

    Anyone mind posting that interview feedback site again? I have been searching but can't find it....It's a little early I know, but we all know how obsessive SDNers are.....:)

    This is a great moral booster for finals week! I was beginning to get depressed about all the work I had to do and all the rejections so far!

    Hey! Thanks! You know... that could be it. But they said they picked who to interview by just picking the highest GPA and DAT scores... and my GPA isn't exactly up there!......

    Ya enver know. I don't want to take a year off... so hopefully things look up for the rest of the cycle. :)

    Sounds like by the time they would have received your LOEs they would have already invited everybody to the Dec 6th interview, but you should set up a meeting with the advisors in February, both Sarah and Liz-Beth and very nice! It is actually a requirement to have a 're-applicant' meeting if you think you might reapply.

    I may be being a bit bitter, but averages of 3.3 for 2008 entering class according to ADA handbook, the current predent average of 3.6, along with interviewing the highest GPAs won't give a 3.3 unless they accept a handful of 2.7s, nah mean?

    I don't understand your point?

    I made a new predents account that is not attached to my SDN name.

    Thanks! I guess I should do that just incase I don't get accepted this cycle. But I guess if I don't get accepted there will be plenty of time for that once I've graduated! ha......


    Really nice of you to give me that advice... I didn't know it was required. :)

    oh sorry, you were talking about OSU. What I meant was, if you go to BU's profile right now for the accepted class, it is an average gpa of 3.6, their average last year was a 3.3 for entering class

    You should maybe consider that predents isn't exactly a random sampling... you can't take predents to be a holy grail to admissions.... its just a way for us to compare ourselves with those who are in the system... there are thousands who aren't.....

    Plus I've heard that the AVGs for a lot of schools have gone up significantly this cycle....the rejection letter I got from OSU mentioned that... ha!

    Exactly. Predents and SDN are most of the top-tier psychos applying to dental schools with 4.0 and 23/23/24, haha. I think the stats on Predents are going to be well above what the real average is.

    got an interview as well. What is with all these BU interviews in feb and march. Are these legit or strictly waitlist.

    If anyone is wondering, I have good stats, but very late submission.
