Your scores are good. Your only problem imo is that its late in the cycle for a new app. I applied late last year too and only landed up getting one interview, then rejected. Everyone on SDN and from the schools "HIGHLY" recommend early application. I suggest that you call the school directly for more information. Also, Doc Toothache has some good excel spread sheets that have data on pre/post Dec acceptances etc...

Does anyone know of any living arrangements?

Should we live in DC or should we try and find an appartment in Arlington or similar areas?

Hey guys i have also received that magical email yesterday and i am very excited to join you guys in August. I currently live in DC area (Arlington to be exact) and i can give you guys some insights on the living situations.

Getting a place in DC

Pros
-Close to campus (depending on which area of DC)
-Less traffic to deal with
-being part of the diverse DC cultural community
-Great night life
-Many things to do when you are free

Cons
-PARKING is a big problem (unless you get an apt with parking garage you will suffer) & its not just about finding a parking, you also need to learn how to decode the million types of parking signs they slap on each curves.
-Hectic life (if you are not used to big cities like DC)
-Rent is slightly more expensive

Getting a place outside of DC (Arlington, Alexandria, etc...)

Pros
-Relaxed life style/less hassel
-No parking issues
-You will get more for what you pay for rent (compare to DC)
-nicer environment

Cons
-Traffic, Traffic, Traffic-395N is nasty b/n 7am-9am
-Farther away from campus
-Parking on campus
-public transportation (metro) can be pricey

These are the only things i can think of right now but please feel free to message me if you have any questions.

Also i would really appreciate it if you guys post the link for the facebook group cus i can't find it.

HOWARD CLASS OF 2015 here we come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i read the post above... I would strongly reccomend googling the dc metro map and looking for housing close to the stations... the areas outside of dc along the metro line (in both md and va) are typically in very urban and populated areas... but relatively inexpensive and make travel easier.

When I last called, Ms. Inge said Howard is waiting for all the seats to fill up before they send out the acceptance packet. Also said this is the first year Howard is doing this.

I had an interview at Howard in January and it went really good....Then, when i called Ms. Inge last Monday, she told me that I should be hearing back by Friday (yesterday)..Does this mean I got rejected because I haven't heard back yet? Did all the acceptance e-mails get sent out already? I'm really frustrated and I don't know what to think anymore...plz HELP!!!!

I'll let you know....I was interviewed on January 14th and I found out that three people (from the same day) are on the waitlist so of course it's scaring me...but honestly they should have sent out e-mails informing students about their status...I'm definitely getting hopeless!!

Yeah, I figured. (Only saw one rejection on predents.com). I didn't wanna bother her. She is probably getting a lot of calls around this time.
I'm just gonna wait patiently. Hopefully we get in.:xf:

Hello everyone, I've applied to Howard COM and I am really excited about this journey I'm embarking on. I'm just waiting on Howard to send my secondary app. Can someone give me a timeline maybe of how long after my AMCAS has been submitted that I can expect to receive my secondary? Thanks :)

This is a thread for the dental school, not the medical school. I doubt they'd be on the same schedules. There is probably a Howard thread in the pre med forums.
