One hasn't been posted yet, so here it is! Last year, interview invites began going out roughly mid-July. According to several sources, they should be going out sooner this year! Good luck everybody!

Here's a link to last year's thread: ****The Official University of Colorado Class of 2022 Interview/Acceptance Thread****

Link to interview prep: University of Colorado Denver School of Dentistry Interview Feedback
----> Be sure to give feedback on your interview to help future applicants! :)

Yes! I was also told from someone on admission that review might start earlier than last year

No. They either sent an email asking you to pay the fee or this email. I did not wait to pay the fee, I paid the fee when I submitted my AADSAS application
I also just paid the fee right when I submitted my application.

Received an interview invite today! Guess the rumors of interviews starting in July were wrong because the earliest interview is August 13th. Close enough though!

I’m wondering if they’re only inviting OOS Applicants at this point?

South Dakota resident with a 3.92gpa and 22AA. From my understanding, SD is part of undergrad WICHE, but it does not carry over to professional schools :(
Thanks for sharing, doesn't seem to be too big of a problem for you and congrats on the invite!

That's actually pretty neat. Looking at the ADEA 2017 book, there is some other cool statistics for Colorado:

Out of 1700 OOS applicants, 132 were interviewed, and 96 of them were accepted. That's close to a 75% acceptance rate for OOS applicants who get an interview!
96? Their class size is 80 though

I also got an interview invite today. They had 5 August days to choose from. Submitted mid June, OOS, above average GPA and DAT.

Good luck everyone. Maybe I'll meet some of you on August 20th!

Same, scheduled my interview on Wednesday and haven't received a confirmation email. I might call in an hour before buying my plane tickets. I don't want to wait too late since the interview is soon.

For those of you getting interviews from Colorado, have you already filled out their supplemental app?

Ok, thanks. Their email saying they had my app under review said “supplemental materials will only be needed upon request” so I assumed they had one.

No supplemental, just the $65 supplemental fee.

Last year was closed file, and I believe it’ll be the same this year. I think it’s very conversational, but I’ve heard a few people say they can be kinda tough on interviewees. It’ll be hard to know until people post back after the first interview date.

I have applied too! OOS and same GPA but my DAT Scores are 18AA 20TS 19 PAT 15 RC, do they have cutoff? Trying to figure out why I didn’t get one?
There’s a bunch of factors that go into inviting someone for interviews. Not only stats. Your 15 in RC could be a reason, or it could be something else! Good luck!

Ok so I just got an email from CO asking if I wanted them to wait to review my app until I retake the DAT on September 1st. Should I tell them to wait or just go ahead and have them review it?

Residency: SD
AADSAS mailed: 06/05/2018
DAT: AA 19 TS 18 PAT 17 RC 22 (16 in gen chem, 21 ochem & 20 Bio)

Undergrad GPA(Science, overall) 3.25, 3.5

I was obviously a fool during the beginning of my undergrad which hurt me later with my average science GPA. I just finished a MS in molecular bio with a 4.0 and am retaking the DAT at the request of another school. I’m trying to have at least a few schools review my application early since several schools have told me they won’t review my application until they receive the new scores.

It's better to get a late interview than no interview. Tell them to put your app on hold until the new score comes in
