I got an email stating to update my application for any missing pre- requisite courses. However, I didn't think I was missing any what should I do?
 
Hmm, I would call and leave a message with the admission office to ask. They are responsive; I left a message last week with a question and someone did call back to answer my question.

i got the same email...hopefully they will make interview offers soon!



I got an email that essentially said after review of my application they are “not prepared to take official action at this time”, then it just outlined how competitive applicants are and said I will get an update if they make any decisions.

Anyone else receive this email? It sounds different from the one you guys got. But also not a straight up rejection?

I got the same email as the above ones - saying that mine made it through the initial screening phase and is in a pool of competitive applicants from which they will send out interviews. I can't tell if it's a good sign or they sent it to everyone saying that there are lots of competitive applicants, good luck, and don't hold your breath lol

I got this email :( Hopefully it isn't a straight up rejection, but maybe we'll get some type of response later in the cycle *fingers crossed*!

betterthistime, odontogenesis, pkris: do you guys mind sharing your stats? Or message me privately if that's more comfortable for you?

Sure,
I’m OOS but with ties to Oregon (I grew up there and my dad still lives there but my official residency is Washington). OGPA: 3.5 SGPA: 3.1 DAT(AA/TS/PAT/RC/any under 17): 22/20/23/29/none. App was verified in mid July. Anything else I can share?

IS; oGPA: 3.3; sGPA: 3.1; postbac GPA: 3.8; 21AA/21TS/22PAT/20RC/21QR; submitted 8/2. Application was verified two weeks later and then I got that email a couple days ago. Really hoping for the best this cycle considering this is one of my top choices and I'm an instate student *fingers crossed*!

Any OHSU dental students/almuni out there on this forum that are willing to answer a few questions? Thanks so much!
 
I'm a DS4. I dont get on SDN that often any more, but I can try and answer any OHSU related questions you may have. You can also message me directly if you want.

How long will OHSU be giving out interviews?
 
How long will OHSU be giving out interviews?
I interviewed this week and they said that they would be continuing interviews in January and into the Spring. A friend of mine who is a D2 there had no contact or interview until the week classes started when he was admitted from a waitlist. No news is good news!
