I just called admissions, gave them my name and asked if I was on the Dec. 1st acceptance list, then he replied:
"The admissions committee has decided to offer you an acceptance this round"

YEAHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!

They said that they mailed out acceptances this morning.

I am extremely happy for a Dec. 1 acceptance! :D

sent in my check, but i just got back from an interview with UCSF so we'll see how things go.:xf:

i'd be more than happy to go to UNLV though.

im from so cal.

I see where you're coming from. I had an interview set for UCSF on Dec. 15th but ended up not going. I figured UNLV was good enough and it wasn't worth going to UCSF and dealing with the stress of trying to sell myself. I'm glad you'll be joining us, potentially. I'm from so cal too!

Who else is going to UNLV?

I already live by the dental school. We live walking distance off of charleston and las vegas blvd in "newport lofts". I am planning on taking my bike to school next year. They are expensive to buy but you can rent them out from people.

Have you guys received your packet with more info yet? If so, how long after you sent your deposit did you received it? Thanks.

Nothing here yet. . . hopefully we'll hear something soon!

Does anyone know what else we need to do to get ready to go into debt? I filled out my FAFSA. Is there anything else I need to be doing to apply for all those loans? Is that something done through the school?

I remember them saying to get out of consumer debt (credit card debt essentially) and do what you can to have a good credit score... 700+ I would think.

I am not sure if there is anything else to do for the loans. I think filling out fafsa is it. I was wondering how fafsa will know that we are attending dental school and need alot more money than all grad programs. The code that we are given to use is just UNLV, not d-school specific. Then on the fafsa it only asks if you are going to be attending grad school, not what school. Any thoughts??

Sorry for the scare. I called the school and they said that those trying to gain residency after the first year shouldn't have a problem. I've gotten the impression that those trying to get residency between now and this fall might run into a few problems.

Hey I interviewed on Feb. 12 and I just called the admissions office yesterday. Still no decision, but they told me that the adcom is getting together in about 2 weeks to make final decisions for their last round of acceptances. The wait is almost over!!

Did you say that you called on the 6th of March? I wonder when they are going to do it. Do you know if the reviews are done on Thursday or Fridays?

What's up guys, I'm headed to UNLV this fall as well! I'm from socal and am looking for a place to move into this summer, and hopefully find roommates. Can anyone already living in Las Vegas recommend some places I could check out that are close to the school?

To sophlu, how do you like living in Newport Lofts? Can you PM me about how much you're paying for rent? Thanks in advance for all your help!
