Nothing yet. Got an "App ready for screening" about a month ago after getting verified. Nothing since then. Have you received any other communications?

Judging by the previous year's thread, it seems that applicants received interview invites around this time last year. Has anyone heard from admissions about an interview yet? I'm curious to know when they start offering invitations

A few people have received invites according to the Dental School Admissions Bootcamp group on FB! I also read somewhere (might have been from last year's thread) that Case sends out invites in batches and towards the end of every month. Not sure how accurate this is and/or whether it'll apply for this year.

I'm having a lot of trouble too....
Even with a word document it's extremely tough to be able to fit everything under the 4MB restriction.
Anyone have any suggestions?

When you convert it into a pdf file, it will reduce in size. Test it out

Did anyone heard back from them this week?
They have historically sent out invites once a month. First batch went out 7/29 so its likely we can expect the 2nd batch around 8/29. Ballpark at least.

Thank you

Is this still true? My app was fully verified by June 26th and I have pretty high stats. Still haven't heard anything from them. Have they sent out anything recently? Or are they done with pre-december interviews?

I had my interview last week at Case Western and I was really impressed with the caliber of the facilities, location, faculty, and students. The interview day was very relaxed and I enjoyed the actual 1-1 interviews. It was very conversational and they really made me feel like they were interested in what I had to say. Overall great experience!

May I ask if you submitted a portfolio? And if you did what did you put on there exactly? I’m having trouble getting mine off the ground...

Yes I believe the portfolio is mandatory this year. I did it in PowerPoint format with pictures depicting different areas of my life so they could get a better understanding of who I am. Examples: Family, hobbies, volunteer and leadership experiences, and why I thought Case was a good fit for me.

I used PowerPoint but you can use whatever you want! Mine was about 10 slides and I had to compress the pictures to make it fit within the MB limits. I wouldn't worry too much about it, just be creative and express your interests!

Thank you so much!!! I just made one slide and put a few pictures on the bottom. I also placed hyperlinks within the slide highlighting my research accomplishments. Hopefully that will be good enough!
