    Unfortunately, you need to wait a little longer as they will consider more applicants to be interviewed once those with multiple acceptances will decline the offer.

    I wanted to post this for those that may not get in their first time around. Before this cycle, I applied twice with no interviews and no luck and a whole lot of tears. I can now officially say I am going to be a dentist and I will be attending my dream school. It has taken a lot of work to get where I am and I am so glad I gave it another shot. For everyone that is still anxiously waiting today, it's okay if you don't hear back or get the news you wanted. Keep working hard, show that you are 100% completely serious, and always show improvement. It is not the end of the world if you get rejected and always always always take the time to re-evaluate, learn and improve your weaknesses. Admissions will notice. If this is what you really want to do, DON't EVER GIVE UP! It will pay off. The first time I took the DAT I had a 17 AA (I got a 13 in Orgo), the second time I got a 19AA. I took the DAT 3 times and ended up getting a 21 TS, 20 AA and a 23 PAT on my last try. I had an undergraduate GPA (SGPA) of 3.1 (3.32), I got a lot of C's in my prereqs so I decided to do a Master's program and ended up with a 3.43 (3.70). Please don't apply if you do not feel ready and don't think you've prepared well. It's a waste of money and your time (take it from me). But DO keep grinding and do anything and everything to make your application the BEST it could be. I've done everything in my power to make the best application for myself (applying early, doing a master's, taking the DAT 3x, shadowing, volunteering, research). I decided that this would be my last time applying and I ended up applying to 21 schools (I know.... GASP. that's a lot of money and I died a little inside with each school I paid but I wanted to know that I tried everything to give myself a chance). I heard back for interviews from 6 schools (UK, UF, NYU, Buffalo, UCSF, and Columbia [truly shocked by the last two]), rejected from NOVA and LECOM and I ended up getting accepted to 3 schools (NYU, Buffalo, and UCSF) and waitlisted for the others. It's been a long freaking journey but when you hear that call after working so hard, you will never feel prouder of yourself than in that exact moment. I'm so thankful that schools have given me the chance to prove myself and see me for more than just GPA and DAT scores.

    TBH I almost gave up. I was exhausted. But seriously, Don't Ever Give Up! Pick yourself up and dust yourself off because if I can do it, you can do it! :love:

    They said in the interview that all applicants are considered for the scholarships, no additional application was required!

    At least you are not on the "Invited for Interview" Bandwagon after everyone got waitlisted or accepted there and you are still invited to an imaginary interview that you are pretty sure you have already attended and spent a lot of money on the flight and the hotel + food there. :woot:

    I am sorry though, not knowing your destiny sucks and I hope you get accepted soon.

    No, no there is no somehow here, you worked pretty hard for these scores and you deserve more, to be honest. I am surprised you didn't apply or didn't get in Upenn or Columbia or Harvard.
    Awesome scores and congratulations.

    I'm leaning toward Creighton because I have family in the area and I was very impressed with the school. I'm sure you'll make the decision that's best for you!

    Reverse alphabetical order?
    Really though what does it mean if you are still "invited for interview"? Does that mean you're wait listed?

    I have a cousin that currently attends Creighton and he loves it so I have some ties there as well, but I cannot complain about these types of problems :highfive:

    I wouldn't worry too much about the AADSAS statuses. Two of the schools that I got into still say "Invited for Interview", and another one of them literally says "None".

    your not very encouraging, but in the event that you were trying to be... thanks. maybe best. I would rather be going on more interviews than just ending my dreams early.

    Alright welp no acceptances and no rejections today. But I got an interesting email from Marquette saying "The Committee has decided to hold making a decision on your application at this time in the process. While both offers of admission and denials have been made at this point, your application will remain active in our applicant pool"
    Is this a soft rejection?

    I know the feeling. I've spent months daydreaming about being accepted to my top choice only to get an email that I'm still under review :( Spent the day pretty sad about it, but at this point, I've come to terms with it and am trying to look on the bright side: it's only the first day for acceptances! It's a long process and things can still turn around. Wishing you the best of luck!! :)

    Oh wow, I got the same exact email! I’m shocked that they sent it to you with no interview. I interviewed with them back in October.

    So it's normal to not receive any emails or any aadsas updates if you're waitlisted?

    Thank you!! If I'm not mistaken, you're a fellow Floridian, so an extra special congratulations on your acceptances !!! :claps::claps::soexcited:
    About where I'm going, NO CLUE. I wish I could go to them all!! I'm seriously torn between Maryland and Pittsburgh. Can I just attend both? I'm willing to commute all 5is hours it takes..
