    I sent my payment about two weeks ago and never heard back about them receiving it and on AADSAS it still says "waiting for additional information". Should I call them?

    I'm in the same situation except I sent my check just a little over a week ago and havent heard from them. I tried calling a few times but nobody answered. My status also says "received/waiting for additional information" so I'm hoping we hear back soon. You could try calling, hopefully you have better luck than I do. Let me know how it goes!

      I am in the same boat, on AADSAS it still says waiting on additional information. My guess is that this school is kind of slow but I'll give them a couple more days before I call. By the looks of this thread it seems like not many have applied to Howard so far.

        I emailed them and they replied very quickly!

          It takes a while before AADSAS gets updated for a lot of schools, so be patient. Also a bit of advice, Howard takes a lot of time, I applied in June last year and didn't get an invite until October and an acceptance on Dec 1st, so be patient.

            What are your guys thoughts of applying here as a non-URM and non-disadvantaged, but have worked extensively in underserved communities and would also be willing to post grad?

            And how does Meharry compare to Howard in terms of accepting students like this? I believe Howard is more inclusive correct?

              I sent in my fee right after I got the email and I did next day arrival. It took them about 2 weeks to let me know they received it and that my application was complete. The portal is also updated for me.

                I sent in my supplemental fee on July 10th, and have emailed them twice and no one has gotten back to me! I have also tried calling, but both phone numbers they have are not working! I am worried they have gotten my supplemental fee payment and it got lost in the mail.

                  That is strange.. I wonder why they got back to some applicants and not others. Im reaching week 3 after paying and still no notification.

                    That is strange. I received an email about a week after sending my application fee. My status on the AADSAS also updated the day I received the email. You didn't by chance pay with a personal or business check did you?

                        Hey guys! I started this thread and then just got lost. Sorry! Yes, so I also applied early June. 20AA and 21's in science (biology and organic - but 19 in chemistry). 3.3GPA. I also heard of the person who got accepted with a 14 in the DAT - I was in disbelieve when I saw that, but happy they gave that person a chance. :)I am local, and HU is really my only choice because I cannot leave home.

                        More info: Made my payments and got an email about 2 weeks after that it was received etc.

                          I had a question on Howards admission criteria for the DAT. On the AADSAS portal under requirements it says "DAT: 18(Total Science)" but on their website it says "DAT: 18 (in each of the eight categories)", which one is it? I would think that the AADSAS portal would be more up to date than their website but curious if anyone knew

                            I haven't submitted my app. Yet, but I will when I get my DAT score at the end of August!
                            I don't know if I should submit it before I get the DAT or should I just wait now!

                              I would say apply now, so once you take it your scores will be sent to the schools you select. The application process with the AADSAS is quite lengthy

                                It won't really matter. The schools won't look at the application until you have all of the documents, DAT included.

                                  I am pretty sure it is 18 in all categories - based on the web site and previous emails to them. But I don't think one lower score will throw you out of the cycle. I guess as long it hovers around it (?!) I have a 17 in the math section but I still send it because everything else was better.

                                    Yes Tabasom, I heard that too! They won't review the application until they received all the documents. So the AADSAS will hold my application until they received everything, then they release it to the schools I chose! This is from the administration office of HU.
                                    Another thing, I don't know why some of the schools I could submit my application to through the AADSAS and others just still not ready to submit! Like for instance, I chose 15 schools to apply to, only 10/15 I could submit my application to.. :/

                                      That's odd. Did you fill out the questions section of all the schools?

                                        Yes, you must still be missing things. Did you answer all of their questions and attach your classes to each requirement they have. They changed so much this year... Just call AADSAS, they are SO HELPFUL and nice. They will walk you through it. Also when are you taking your DAT?

                                          I don't know, but I went through the application sections all! I believe the only thing missing is the transcript of my second school! They mistyped something belong to my grades, and I called my school and they said they fixed it and sent the correct information back to the AADSAS! And I'm taking my DAT in August 28.

                                            I don't know, but I went through the application sections all! I believe the only thing missing is the transcript of my second school! They mistyped something belong to my grades, and I called my school and they said they fixed it and sent the correct information back to the AADSAS! And I'm taking my DAT in August 28.
                                            What schools out of the 15 can you not send the application for if you don't mind me asking?

                                            1. Pre-Health (Field Undecided)
                                              Is there a calculator during the science sections like GN Chem, math?
                                              And, Do you need to have a recommendation letter with you when go take the DAT test?

                                              Hey! They provide you with an calculator online but only for the math section. So the calculator is a basic functions one (no graphing, functions, etc). And for you second question, I'm not sure what you mean by a letter of recommendation. When you go to take the DAT all you need is identification, they send you an e-mail for what kind of identification you need to bring. I brought some study notes and a snack for my break so I could eat and review for the math section.

                                              Hope this helped, and all the best taking the DAT. Good luck!!

                                                After submitting AADSAS, how long did it take them to reply to you guys in regards to the secondary? I submitted the app last week and I have heard nothing yet.

                                                  That's what I meant. So it took them like 2-3 weeks to get back to you regarding the supplemental feed submission? Thank you for your help!

                                                  I submitted my application 7/14, received an email from them 7/26 saying they had received my application and requesting to mail them a money order or cashiers check to be made no later than 10 days from the date the email was received. Hope this helps!

                                                    Hi,
                                                    I need some opinion about whether to apply to Howard university or not?

                                                    I have Master's degree in engineering. I was a research assistant with full fellowship in my MS degree. My DAT scores are:
                                                    AA: 23, TS: 22, PAT: 22, RC: 20, QR: 28, Bio: 20, GC: 23, OC: 26 GPA: 3.79 Shadowing: 120 hours
                                                    I am taking most of the prerequisite courses now, so my problem is that I don't have any course to match with Human Anatomy, Physiology and Microbiology in the required prerequisite courses.
                                                    Should I apply? What are my chances if I apply?
                                                    Thanks,
