On AADSAS, for Meharry it says "Received/Application Complete" even though I haven't turned in my supplemental or my application fee... Any of you guys have the same issue?

Does anyone's AADSAS portal say "received/waiting for additional information" after you submitted the secondary? I submitted my secondary last week and Meharry should have everything of mine but my AADSAS portal has not changed to "Complete".

Anyone here with GPAS right under 3.0, what are your DAT;s? Chance of acceptance or even interview with these stats?

Expect interviews to start around October. They also run very late -until around April. Most of my class seems to have been accepted after January.

I have a quick question. Today I received an interview invite for September 30, but this date conflicts with another interview. I already committed to the other school's invite a few weeks ago and purchased a plane ticket. Should I be 100% honest with Meharry's admissions board about the reason I can't make their date? Does anyone know if they allow rescheduling?

I feel like you should be 100% honest about the interview you scheduled first and ask if there is another available date.

I think you should be honest as well. It's early in the application cycle so they probably can give you another date.

Congrats! I agree, you should just be honest, I'm sure they will be more than willing to reschedule your interview.

Has anyone else heard back from Meharry?

How many post bacc credits did you take if you don't mind me asking?
I had 23 post bacc credit hrs!
I'll just tell you what I took lol
Histology, Cell bio, Human anatomy, environmental bio, biochem II, immunology, and a bunch of physics/biology labs. So basically all the recommended courses from each dental school website. Hope that helped!

Hey! Congrats on your interview! I bet you nailed it! I have a question about your post bac classes...did you take them through a program of any sort or just took classes. I'm considering taking classes but don't know which route to go (just taking classes or master's program).

Thanks in advance!

Hey! Thank you! I did informal post bacc. So I just took recommended courses that were listed on each dental school website.
From what I've heard from admissions panels, post bacc work is just as competitive as grad school work if you do really well in it. So a 4.0 post bacc is better than a 3.2 grad school GPA (from what I've heard). And post bacc is WAYYY cheaper haha

Thank you! I believe we had 20 minutes per one-on-one interview, but my first one went over by like 10 mins lol I think they really liked me so hopefully I get an acceptance! There were 2 interviews total. I interviewed with Dr. Gray (SUPER personable and friendly) and Ms. Thompson (very nice but a bit more professional).

Did you guys receive supplementals from Meharry?
everyone receives supplementals. they don't process your application further unless you complete the supplemental application and pay $65, that's what is written in an email after they receive your AADSAS

How about your extracurriculars? That may be the problem because your DAT scores are good.
