Haven't seen one for Rutgers, so starting a new thread here. @artist2022 add this to official as well!

Has anyone been contacted by the school for a secondary fee yet?

Best of luck to all!

I received the request for the supplemental fee on June 18th after submitting on the 5th. Note that you have to snail mail the fee to the school.

I was contacted for the supplemental fee about a week after submitting the application. I then received a follow-up email when the check was received and processed. Nothing since then.

They take time, but they will start sending invites shortly, if they haven't yet. They are probably busy getting us, and the D2,D3, and D4's set up for this year.

Slightly surprise that not more people are posting on this.

Did anybody hear anything from them? How many interviews had they conducted so far? Really wanted to interview with them but hearing nothing yet. :(

Also received the interview invitation from Rutgers! Could someone who attended the interview share some insights of it? I also missed the webinar they hold in August, does anyone have the record? Thanks a lot!

I had my interview recently, it was very conversational and easygoing, could depend on who you get as your interviewer. The student ambassadors were also really friendly, you get a chance to talk to them in the morning, so make sure you come early!

As far as interview questions, its pretty much the basic stuff, just know your application and your motivation for dentistry, Rutgers etc.

My 2017-2018 ADEA guide book says Rutgers IS tuition is 38,883 and OOS is 63,001. Their website now says it is 47,766 for IS and 77,392 OOS. Did they seriously jump $9,000 IS and $14,000 OOS in one year? Should we be expecting this kind of rate increase over 4 years? This is extremely discouraging

They didn't mention anything about tuition increases during the interview day but they did say SEVERAL times that OOS students get in-state tuition after the first year

does anyone know how many people get interviewed and how many acceptances they send out?
According to ADEA, the 2016 entering class had 132/336 IS interviewed and 185/1598 OOS interviewed. 54 IS and 27 OOS enrolled, not sure how many were accepted from interviewed pool. The online ADEA dental school explorer guide is for 2017 entering class but doesn't provide number of ppl interviewed.

Hi, I'm an in-state student so obviously this is my first choice but I have not heard from them since September when they received my supplemental fee :( Should I email or call them asking about my application? Or should I wait until Dec 3rd since they will be sending invites? How should I approach them? I'm really sad but I know they are a competitive school so I'm not surprised since my stats are not the greatest

If you don't mind me asking, what are your stats?

My sister as well got the none thingy. She really loved the school, so I really hope this means a good thing for all of you and her, but you never know. Best of luck!

Honestly, if you haven't already called or emailed, I think waiting till Dec 3 is best since its so near.
