    I figured I would start a thread for Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health since interviews started going out in mid-August last year. You can post any updates, questions, or information you have about the school on this thread. Good luck to all!

    Here is a link to last years thread: ***Official ASDOH Class of 2022 Interview/Acceptance Thread***

    That's exciting..congratulations!!
    Do you mind sharing your stats and community service hours? Also, did anything change on your portal stating you got an invite, or was it just email?

    GPA (science overall): 3.37, 3.56
    DAT (AA, TS, PAT, RC): 20,19,18,23; none below 18
    ECs: 500+ Community service, 150 shadowing, 1000+ research with publication, 1000+ leadership hours

    On the ASDOH secondary portal, an interview tab popped up. Nothing else, other than that just standard email communication.

    Hi all, can anyone clarify what is meant by a LOR from a "broad-based volunteer community service project"? I have hours under which I volunteered at my local bike shop to gather abandoned bikes and refurbish them for students and residents in my town. Would that be classified as "broad-based"

    Yes that’s perfect. They are referring to a general community service project that is focused on helping others. It doesn’t have to be related to dentistry. Plus I think yours is really cool because it shows you’re well rounded and have cool interests (bikes). Tell the letter writer to focus on the helping the students/residents aspect and you’re golden. Pm me if you need help with this.

    Thank you! An admissions coordinator replied that they'd like to see involvement in programs like food banks and Red Cross, but I feel confident now that my involvement at my bike center would be acceptable too.

    Can those who have been invited to interview share how many hours of community service they had?

    Thanks!

    My aadsas status says “none” for this school. Could anyone elaborate on what this may mean? I submitted around June and had received an email stating my app was complete and under review about a month ago. On the portal most of my under schools either say “received/under review” or “received/app complete”. I would like to know what the “None” is all about.

    That's what my status is as well. From what I understand, A.T. Still prefers to use their own portal and doesn't update the AADSAS.

    Others may know more about this and can correct me if I'm wrong, but I feel it's not anything to worry about as long as you're checking your own portal (and have been informed by them that you're in review).

    For two of the schools that I've received interviews, including ASDOH, the status on ADEA ADSAS says "none". I wouldn't worry too much about the ADEA ADSAS status, just rely on email communication and individual school portals!

    Congrats! I have similar stats to you too, just a little under in GPA but little higher in DAT. My app was complete late July/early Aug though so fingers crossed!!

    I'm not URM. I believe my app went into review at the beginning of August.

    How many community service hours do you have?
    (Ha! Nevermind....I see you posted them above at the same time I posted this question!! :) )

    I have 50 more volunteer hours to add to my already submitted application. I was told that I could update and add any additional hours even after I'd submitted, but can't see where to do that at the portal.

    Does anyone here know how I can add these? Do I need to call them or email them?

    Hmm I thought you could only add new volunteer/experiences and not edit them, such as add hours

    I was told over a month ago (when I called to check on the status of my application), that if I had accumulated more volunteer hours, to let them know and they'd add them. I went ahead and checked with them today and was told to go ahead and write them up and email them to admissions. I don't know if and when they'll add them, but I thought it couldn't hurt :)

    Thanks for your response!!

    I am debating whether I should try to obtain that optional letter of recommendation from my community service supervisor since it's not required this cycle. Would it help applicants, since I don't have thousands of hours of community service hours?

    Did you guys schedule your interviews on online portal? Is that it or do we have to email the admission's office that I've scheduled it?

    I was told by the admissions coordinator today that they do not update AADSAS until way later in the cycle.

    What day did you end up scheduling your interview for?

    Do you (or anyone) know if they've already given out all of their pre-December interview invites?

    Oh, and Good Luck!!! :)

    When I scheduled, they only had to October 9th available. I assume that they will open more in October or November for future rounds of interviewees.

    Does anyone know if the panel interview is a panel of interviewers or interviewees or both?

    Would it be impossible to go to the airport to catch a 6:20pm flight after the interview? The airport is Sky Harbour in Phoenix.
    Other tickets are at least $100 more expensive :(
    I think we are done by 4:30pmish.. anyone interviewed already?

    I think October 1st is the first day for interviews (at least that I've seen). But, I'm anxious to hear how it goes too!!

    I honestly haven't seen many interview invites posted....I'm sure hoping to get one and I hate the wait :arghh:

    How does their interview invitations go? I don’t know if there’s another a portal that we need to check or do we expect an invitation email? My status is “none” on AADSAS.
