Does anyone know how many more interview sessions they will have? And if they will be interviewing anymore out of state applicants?

Hello everyone :)
I have a quick question about the interview

Do we have any writing portions as well?

Thanks!

Is anyone applying to get into their post bacc program?
You can't until you have been rejected. Or are you asking "Is anyone applying to CU Dental with the intent of being rejected and applying to their Post bacc program"?

I'm told that the admission committee won't meet until the last week of November to make their decision. No decision has been made yet, regardless of when you interviewed.

They have already made unofficial decisions throughout the whole cycle. The November meeting is just to finalize and make it official and see if any changes need to be made as well as choose who to accept from the November 26th interviews.

They have interviewed over 400 applicants. You can’t sit in a room and compare 400 people in one meeting

i'm glad to hear they already have an unofficial decision. I don't know how they would remember someone from August even if they stood out.

Im just relaying what I was told. Also they dont interview 400 people predecember. They also does post december interviews. Im positive majority of your interviewers wont remember who you are from the interview, they will just rely on the notes they took during the interview.

Also they are not planning to fill the class on dec 3rd. Only 60 or 70 acceptance will be handed out, and they continue to fill the class as applicant make their decision.

So Crystal at the ASDA event told everyone that they were doing over 300 interviews pre-december.

Plus, the current students have told me there were about 10 weeks in which they could pick from to help with the interviews. Each week has around 40 interviewees. 10 on Monday, 10 on Friday, 20 on Saturday

That's what they used to do in past years. Earlier this year they said they wanted to fill up most of their class by the end of December which is why they started interviewing in early August and sending out interviews by July.

They told me they dont want to over commit on dec 3rd. They wont fill the class up on first day since they will continue to do post December interviews.

Has anybody been able to get into contact with the admissions office? I’ve been calling every hour today and several times the past two days but still no answer. I’ve even emailed them earlier today. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I will not be able to make it to my interview on Monday. I’m worried not showing up will mess up my chances

Just email Crystal. But just so you know they only had November 19th and November 26th open as of last week but I am not sure if those days are still available.

If you PM me your name, I can pass a message along to someone directly. If not, best bet is to email, like you have done, and hope they get it.

is it true that even if you change residency to CO, you'll still pay the OOS tuition since they base it off when you entered. They don't reevaluate you every year. I have it written down on my notes from the interview, but wanted to make sure.

They told us exactly that. No re-evaluation, once you enter as OOS, that is what you remain for the duration of the four years. There may be some exceptions, but I am unaware of what they would be.

You still pay out of state tuition. But after the first year you can apply for financial aid as a resident which means you would be you could potentially be eligible for Colorado state grants which can bring your tuition down to in state.....if you qualify for grants based on your FAFSA

About 400 interviews for 72 seats?

I got the email with the massage from the dean. Look like they are not filling the class on the 3rd.

Same. Unless my only acceptance is from a highly expensive school.

You know that people are given a month to accept or reject their offer right? Why would you just take the first offer you’re given? It would make more sense to wait to see how things play out over that first month. If you’re in a bind with a deadline and need to accept something, yeah, for sure, accept something. But to jump the gun and accept the very first school who contacts you doesn’t make much sense...
