Did you already get an interview at Midwestern Arizona?
Yeah! The email surprised me too, considering I`m international with not-so-special stats. They received my application and fee like four days ago.

EDIT: Also a little concerned, because I haven't seen a single person on the forum who also got invited for an interview. What makes me so special!? OR IS THIS A PRANK

Midwestern Arizona sent an interview invite to my gf today who is a South Dakota resident! Looks like they are ahead of the game this year

Congrats on getting your interviews! To help other applicants, both present and future, please post the dates they're offering for interviews if you don't mind :) Or if not the date, then maybe the month, so that applicants can see what the timings between submission, invite, and interview are! :) Also, if you post your date, you guys can coordinate for rooms and such :) Don't forget to post in the school specific thread too (which can be found in this list) Congrats and good luck! :happy:

** Don't despair if you have been waitlisted for an interview. There is still hope, and it's not a rejection. You never know what could happen! **

In the link they sent I was free to choose any date starting August 15th (except weekends and some other specific dates, I don't remember exactly). I'm guessing that's the first interview day. Good luck to everyone!!:clap:

Waitlisted for interview MWU-AZ. Didn’t even know that was a thing...is it usually really a soft rejection?
I also was waitlisted for an interview. From looking on past threads, our chances are not great BUT it is better than a rejection. Best of luck to you!

Can someone tell me what is the deal with "any section below 17"? Is 17 included?
Thank you.

This statement refers to sections of the DAT. Some schools have minimum cutoffs. Each school is different on what they will accept. If it says below 17, I would think 17 is not included, but it is right there. So, that's not great.

Thank you. Is it likely you will be interviewed if you don't have any below 17? Or someone even with none below 18 would not be interviewed. Pretty much I am asking if DAT is weighted heavier than GPA.

Another interview invite to Nova!

Canadian applicant, low stats. Guess I'm hogging the game ;)
Dang, that makes 2 interview invites and it's not even July yet! How many schools did you apply to?

15, three apps not complete yet because of supplementary apps (UDM, Loma Linda, Rutgers). People told me that as a Canadian I needed to apply broadly (20 schools)! My top choices are UDM and Pitt!

For anyone who’s filled out the ASDOH supplemental, for the question about prolonged periods of non-academic activity, if it doesn’t apply to me do I just leave it blank? Or do I need to mention the 2 summers where I didn’t take summer classes?

I wouldn't think summer break counts as "prolonged". Put N/A if it doesn't let you leave it blank.
