I got almost all rejections and am hoping to get into NYU(as you know it's a back-up school) Then, when is the last day of interviewing?

Your question would probably be answered by now if you hadn't called NYU a back-up school.

A lot of people don't have clear cut ideas about what a back-up school when applying to d-schools is...

Just like we get Q's like... whats the diff bet DDS and DMD... or what are d-school rankings.... etc...

People see schools like NYU as a "backup" becaues of the lower GPA average... when in reality there are other factors (such as cost) that cause this GPA to be lower. Not necessarily the "level" of the school. I've had someone say that to me about Boston and its quite annoying but i suppose it happens when people let the average numbers/stats speak for the school's rep.

Some people get into IVYS and don't hear a peep from "backups" like NYU. There is no guarantee Gegogi.... just wait it out.

Dah well.

My friend who applied from my school last year got into BU, Maryland, Buffalo, Creighton, Tufts, but rejected without interview from NYU...3.6/18,14QR (wasn't something insanely high)

As has been said, there's not really such a thing as a backup school these days, regardless of how many seats NYU has to fill.

To answer the original question: I think they said they interview through April, not positive though. I remember a few people on SDN got accepted from the waitlist just a few weeks before the semester started.

Supraman is right. There ain't no mo' backup schools. Look at schools that have NO clinics(no patients, no chairs, no clinical faculty) like Midwestern and Western. They were very selective as to who they admitted. Your only hope is that you fill some niche somewhere and you catch the eye of some Adcom. If you only got rejections, then you probably have to improve your credentials either with a DAT retake or postBacc or grad degree. Good Luck.
