Does anyone know what the deferral means? I feel like I am a decent applicant and getting deferred a week into the cycle seems weird to me. Any thoughts?

decision to invite or reject is on hold until they get more information or to compare you to more applicants
better than a rejection, and not silence like you get from most schools

Yeah they sent me an email to set up an account where you can pay the fee and answer some questions. Midwestern AZ and IL use the same website but they have different supplementals. I received the link on June 10th. Hope y'all receive yours soon!

Just want to say "Good Luck" to all of you future dentists out there. For some, it will be a glorious experience, for others (like myself) a torturous marathon! Don't be swayed, don't give up, persist!!! You will be rewarded for your hard work!

You're in for a long cycle lmao
You have no idea man! My heart beats so hard and I legitimately have trouble sleeping and when I do I only get like 3 hours of sleep; what if they think I'm lying about my extracurricular, what if I mess up during my interviews, what if my advisers don't remember me, what if they lose my application, what if I only get accepted to the most expensive school or even worst I GET NO ACCEPTANCES! IT'S KILLING ME, every e-mail my heart races !

As a second-time applicant, let me tell you: I felt that same way my first application attempt. Then I failed. It is okay. LOL. You will be alright.

Ehh... I’m on my third cycle. My application is already submitted and I haven’t batted an eye. At this point I’m just like, “If I keep on applying the have to eventually let me in.”

Nice! They waitlisted me for an interview. They emailed me and said even though my GPA and DAT were very competitive for them, I didn't give enough information about who I was in my personal statement. I'm confused because I felt like I answered why I wanted to pursue a career in dentistry on my personal statement. I didn't think they wanted me to put personal things about myself on there.

That stinks! There are quite a few people that apply to MWU as well as many other schools, so you may have a chance to move off the waitlist once the interviews and acceptances start coming out. That is if this is your top school.

I'm applying to all the Texas schools for sure, as I'm from Texas. I still have not finalized my AADSAS school list :( I know for sure I'm applying to WesternU, though! What about you?

That’s really surprising - your stats are great! Did you get rejected for interview this cycle or last cycle?
