    If what you say is correct, your spot was already given away. December admissions are only good for 45 days.

    Does anyone know if they are still sending out interview invites, even if for wait list?

    I am holding onto a glimmer of hope. LOL.

    when did you guys interview? maybe you interviewed at different times and are in different batches therefore you were told that your decisions would be made at different times?

    no, I interviewed the same week and they also told me Monday would be the day, but since then I spoke with the admissions office and they said it wouldn't be Monday but that it would be this week sometime.

    Also, I heard that they are doing one last set of interviews for the alternate list. you should call rose and let her know that you are still interested in the school! good luck!

    Just phoned in the news.... hopefully one of you get the spot, I know that you really would love it. It is a great school, and was a tough decision.

    no they have three interview dates with 50 ppl each time for the spring interviews..the 11th, 18th, and (i'm assuming) yesterday were the three and i was told there is 40 spots for those interviewed. idk if they have extra interviews for the waitlist, i didn't ask about that. so anyone that interviewed recently were interviewing for a seat not for the alternate list.

    yikes 40 spots for 150 interviewees! But they probably accept more than 40 since not all those that get accepted will deposit and say yes. Anyone know when they will finish giving notices on final decisions for all those who did and did not interview? I guess Upitt is wrapping up their cycle and finishing filling their seats as well.

    Does this mean that the people whose AADSAS returned to "Recieved / Under Review" are NOT being accepted ths round? Seems like it...

    she didn't say much to me i practically started to hyperventiliate so she told me to take a breathe and finally when i did she said letters should be goin out hopefully today, that they are self explanatory, and that was pretty much it..it can't hurt to call if youre worried about it

    Just to put people at ease concerning aadsas...... none of the changes before meant anything. Mine never changed at all (stayed as invited for interview) and I got accepted.

    congrats to all of you who got into pitt. I spoke to Rose today and they made their final choices for who was getting the last set of interviews and they are pretty much done with interviews. she said those who got interviews had min scores of 21 on each section. is there anyone who got accepted who had lower scores? just curious. anyway, congrats again!

    my aa was 18, but this is my third time applying and i've been working in a dental office for the last year and half, so that may have made them offer me an interview.

    during the interview she did say they move through their waitlist quite a lot so as long as you haven't been declined you still have a good shot :)

    Did she say anything else or did any of you that called or got calls know if how many offers they are making and plan on going through? The committee must have made deicisons on all the people that interviewed so far so I wonder if we can call and ask what the status is?

    yea, definately you should call rose and ask for ur status rather than just waiting to get a phone call. I have called her last friday and she told me that they have made their first decision and I figured out that I was the one of the accepted applicants there. So, just call and ask! Rose said she is going to make a phone call to everybody but I do not think it would happen in few days so.

    In the way of calling her, I simply sent her an email thanking her for the opportunity to interview and she called me back within 20 minutes.

    For anyone that has been accepted: Do you know any dates or times for anything? I thought I heard something like a 3 day meeting in June or July. Also does anyone know the first day of classes etc? Just any important dates thanks.

    My understanding is that there is a three day orientation the first week of june (4th, 5th and 6th.... i think), the first deposit of $750 is due on the 13th of march, the second deposit is due on May 1st, and school starts on the 22nd of august. I hope that helps.

    In the way of the deposits, can we simply mail in 1 large payment($1500) or do he prefer it to be split into 2? I just don't want to get to the second date and have it slip my mind. That would really make my day:mad:
