Thanks for starting this thread. I already paid my $75 to Columbia. However, my transcript has yet to be received by AADSAS. Should I have my 3rd science professor send his letter with my AADSAS number to [email protected] now?

Good luck fam! For anyone stressing out later on in this thread, I didn't get an interview invite until February (was one of the last 2 interview groups) and I got accepted in March. Anything can happen!

Attention applicants... DO NOT EAT A LARGE BREAKFAST BEFORE THE INTERVIEW. SAVE YOUR APPETITE FOR THE LUNCH BUFFET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
+1 best food I had at any of my interviews bar none.


When did you e-submit and may I ask yor stats and EC's?

I esubmitted 7/31 so I was somewhat late compared to most SDNers. This may partly be a reason why I got late interviews. Also, my stats were not amazing so that could be another reason. 21AA/22PAT | 3.33 GPA | great extracurriculars, amazing research (published co-author in high end journal) + great shadowing/volunteering hours, "7" total LORs (5+cover letter and then 1 extra submitted electronically from a dentist I shadowed).

It varies by applicant , average accepted AA and TS is around 22-23 and gpa around 3.6-3.7 but you have to remember they really do try to have a very holistic approach to applicant viewing and or screening , extracurricular hold some weight and other non stat app portions are also viewed with a decent amount of weight , nothing is guaranteed regardless of stats and anyone with decent stats on par with the level of accepted students from years past stands a chance , or so it would seem

Hi
Thanks for giving me that info. Based off a snapshot of my stats, do you think you could give me an idea if I would be invited for an interview?
DAT: AA-21 TS-22 GPA -3.89 Science GPA-3.89 Non-science GPA - 3.9
I have extracurriculars working in hospitals, medical clinics, 90 shadowing hours and running 2 school clubs.

Hi future dentists, I apologize if my question doesn't relate to this thread, but how long did it take for your status to change under School Decisions after you e-submitted and paid the supplemental fee?

Thank you so much!

I e-submitted on 6/6, paid the fee two days later, and my status was not changed to "under review" until 7/1. :)

When you got the email, did they give you a set of dates to choose from? Or did you have to call in to find out which days were being offered?
