    My status on AADSAS is "invited to interview", but I haven't heard anything directly from the school yet. I'm not sure if I actually received an interview invitation

    Hey guys. I was invited to interview but I didn't get an email from them. Is there a number that I have to call to schedule my interview or do I just call the school of dentistry? Thanks

    ^^ i just recently received an interview invitation email from UDM, they will give you a number on whom to contact.. If you're AADSAS status says "invited for interview" they should send an email shortly, if not I would call the dental school and speak with someone from admissions office.
    My interview is Thursday, nervous!!:xf:

    My aadsas page said invited for interview on Monday but I never received an email from them. I called the admissions office and they were super friendly and scheduled the interview for me despite not receiving the email.

    Does everyone have an AADSAS status for this school? I don't have one.....and I'm concerned. The school doesn't show up under the "School Decisions" page. Thanks!

    Do they assign you a date or you have to choose one? If the latter, which interview date did you choose?

    Hey guys! So happy to join this thread! :D:D:D

    My AADSAS status was changed to invited for interview on 9/13. I tried to contact them many many times but the call kept going into voice mail. Finally, I someone picked up this morning and I was able to schedule an interview on 11/3 :D

    During the call, she told me that they're not sending out any emails/snail mails for interview invitation. You just have to call them. But they will send you confirmation in snail mail once you shceulde an interview. So if you haven't called yet, it's time to pick up that phone! :)

    I am so excited b/c this is my first interview. Anyone else joining me on 11/3? Btw, if anyone wants to share hotel room or taxi ride, definitely let me know. :p

    Hey guys!

    UDM is my number 1 choice! I applied on August 28th, and I was wondering if I were going to recieve an interview, would it be before December? Do I have a shot at an interview before the first batch of acceptance?

    instead of just two dates mentioned by other people in this thread

    They do offer interviews on Saturday ( I think there's only two days available though). I had originally booked my interview on a Tuesday and the admissions office called me the next day to let me know about the Saturday dates. It was actually very thoughtful of them :thumbup:

    I also have an interview on September 29th. Kind of wish it was later but I was under the impression that they were GIVING me a set date and that I was not allowed to change it.

    Does anyone know where I could find more information about UDM's interview process? I feel like there is a thread for that sort of information for ALL dental schools somewhere on SDN. My interview is in 9 days so I really need to prepare now!

    Have any Michigan residents been invited for interview? I ask because I know people out of state getting interviews but I have yet to be notified on anything. I called yesterday and Betsy told me that they've completed my file but haven't made a decision yet.

    I have an undergrad gpa of 3.0 from Oakland University (lots of factors for the low gpa explained in my personal statement), 4.0 from a masters in biomedical sciences, and a 23 aa, 25 ts, 26 pat DAT. I am not sure if I should take the news as good or bad, and what my chances are because unless they read my personal statement my file can easily be passed on.

    I am a Michigan resident. I am in the same boat as you, however I have a classmate that has already interviewed, so at least in that one instance they interviewed a Michigan resident.

    Good luck on your interview! It is VERY low-key. Honestly, my interviewer was so kind and we talked for an hour about anything as if it was a conversation between friends. I wouldn't be worried about it at all.

    Hey, Sulcus, just thought I'd chime in here. I'm a MI resident and I was invited for an interview on August 27 with the actual interview on Sept. 10. I hope you hear back soon! Good luck with everything

    Jimmy, thanks for the info. Hopefully we both get invites, but for now I guess it's a waiting game.

    Dentstudent, thank you! I need all the luck I can get. I hope the interview went well for you and good luck with everything.

    To anyone who already interviewed at UDM this cycle or in the past,

    I have my interview coming up in a few days. I know it's suppose to be laid back and relaxed, but I cannot help but be super nervous. My heartbeat is actually racing right now just thinking about the whole process. I was wondering if anyone had ANY helpful tips for this important day? Maybe anything they wish they had brought or said for/at the interview? Maybe something the interviewer said that caught you off gaurd? Did they talk about your application a lot? What kind of specific questions did they ask?

    Any help would be greatly greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.
