If anyone has any questions about Iowa or the Iowa City area, I am here to help from Iowa originally and went to the University of Iowa for my undergrad.

Actually no. I received the application received email very quickly after I submitted at the end of June then didn't hear about the deferral until the end of July.
Haven't heard anything since.

I believe the interview days vary; the one on August was a Tuesday, and the next one in September is on a Monday.

I sent my application in early June and haven't heard about interviews or deferral. I did get an email on 8/5 about Iowa student well-being and on 9/2 about IASDA. Does everyone who applied get those emails?

Good luck to everyone interviewing tomorrow! Bernie Sanders is in town for tonight by the way, so take your nerves off by checking him or the rest of the city out, we’ve got this!

It doesn't get done till between 3:00-3:30 p.m. So don't book flights till about 5 p.m. or so. There is an airport about 20 mins away in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Did anyone else still waiting for an interview invite receive the research email from Iowa today? Not sure if that is supposed to have any value or not. Does anyone know if there even any pre-December interviews still available for Iowa?

I believe these are the types of emails they send out to everyone who applied, regardless if they’ve already interviewed, have been invited to interview, or are still waiting to hear back.

That makes sense. So anti-climatic to get an email like that when you're waiting to hear back for an interview!

Hey guys! Anyone know how the writing portion of the interview day goes? Also, it isn’t MMI style anymore is it? I didn’t think it was, but just read someone from this interview cycle said they had MMI.

Just wondering if anyone's AADSAS status has been changed from "Invited for Interview" to "Check Back to Dec 2nd" after the interview day so far?

Does anyone know if Iowa is done sending out interview invites? Is it true that they don't conduct any post-December interviews?

Almost just one month left before the Dec 2nd. For those who were interviewed OOS applicants in August and September, just wondering if your AADSAS status has been changed to "Received/Under review" or "Check back to Dec 2nd" from "Invited for interview". Thanks in advance for your update!

I still have invited for interview as my status from when I interviewed back in September. I don’t know if the labels mean much/are accurate of real time decisions, but all we can do is wait at this point! I’ve been counting down from 75 days and I’m so excited!

OOS, interviewed in October, and still “Invited for Interview.” Was wondering if there was historically any significance in the statuses as well!

Just got an interview invite from them, and in it they said that they recommend scheduling an interview within two weeks from the date the email was sent, so they are still doing pre-dec emails it seems!

Correct they don't have post December interviews to my knowledge though.

So there have been no interviews yet? The earliest ones are after Dec 2?
December 6 is the last interview date Iowa offers; I believe there are only 2 November interviews on the 15th and 25th.

With it being pretty late in the interview cycle, I am hesitant to pay the $60 fee to create a student ID just to see available remaining dates in the case that I am unavailable for those remaining dates, and there's not a ton of information online about the school so I just don't know a ton about the program. For anyone who has visited campus and/or interviewed, what stood out to you about the University of Iowa's dental program??
