I'm a late applicant. I applied mid September, and AADSAS has completed my application and submitted it late September. On AADSAS website, the status has been 'Received/Under review' for more than a month and a half now.

Knowing that there's not much time left until schools stop sending interview offers, I'm starting to get worried.

My stats are as following:

GPA: 3.82
Canadian DAT: AA 22 PAT 23 (Reading comp 22, Bio 22, Chem 21, Science total 21)

Would it be a good decision to call individual schools and ask about my application status or should I give them some more time?

Seeing a lot of people on this forum getting interview offers and acceptances, I'm starting to get nervous.

Any advice will be much appreciated.


I wish the best for everyone and happy new year!

-J

Since September is not SUPER late, and your stats are great, what's probably holding you back is that you're an international applicant.

At this point, I can't offer you any advice besides sit and wait. If you don't hear back this cycle then be ready go on June 1st. Since your grades don't seem to be at issue applying early should help you out. Good luck!

Don't worry. I'm also from Canada (not Canadian though), and I applied late (my last LOR was sent in on Nov 1) but I received few interviews. Our stats are similar (I have lower gpa but higher DAT) so I'm sure you'll get some interviews especially when Jan 15th comes around. I just started getting the invites so if you wait I'm sure you will hear good news :))!!

I have a feeling you'll be getting an invite relatively soon. I don't think that the interview process is over soon like you mentioned above though. I think they have to interview until the class is full and that could go until May! Just stay positive!
