Does anyone know if Houston is still giving out interviews?

So they sent out 50 rejections as well as acceptances?
No, I think he meant they sent out 50 acceptances and it seems like, based on SDN, it's 50/50 as far as people accepting the offer. For example, some people got in to both San Antonio and Houston and they might choose San A instead, aka deny Houston. Baylor instead of Houston, etc.

In other words, if Houston sent out 50 offers on December 1st you can safely assume not everyone accepted the offer and there are 50+ seats still available to be given out.

Historically, they've needed around ~150 offers to fill 100 seats. So, still plenty of seats and time to go...

Has anyone who has gotten into UT Houston received a formal letter in the mail? I haven't gotten anything from them since the first email on Dec 1, so just curious!

Congrats! I had my interview in Houston on November 17th. Starting early in the morning they gave a presentation about the Dental school and then around 10am, they split the interview group into 2. One goes on a tour of the school and the other half gets picked up by different members of the Dental Clinical Directors for a one on one interview for about an hour. After an hour the 2 groups switched. Then you join the rest of the interviewing group for lunch with D1-D4 students there to welcome and answer any questions you may have at noon. After that some more presentations all the way until 3pm. Before leaving the school, they sized us for our White Coat Ceremony!

I had my interview before December 1st. I'm still waiting too. I turned my application (super late) on October 1st and was surprised to hear back from any school within a month for an interview. I'm being proactive and getting ready to reapply if I have to when the next application cycle opens up in May.

Congrats on your acceptance! If you don't mind me asking, could you tell me if they asked a lot of difficult questions during interview? I am a Texas resident and this is my only interview in Texas. I am really nervous. Thank you!

The interviewers have a list of questions that they have to ask. My interviewer was like "So i'm gonna ask you these questions on this form and fill it out as you talk. So if it seems like i'm not listening don't worry." Lol. My interviewer didn't ask anything too crazy. I think the most difficult question was "Tell me about a time you had an ethical problem in college." Or something along those lines. Other than that the questions were pretty standard.

Don't worry you will do great!

So its safe to assume I most likely won't hear anything (acceptance wise) until possibly after Feb 11th?? Since I did not hear anything today?

Maybe...
It might be sooner if people that were accepted today accept/reject their acceptance quickly.

Which school are you deciding on going and how much time did they give you to respond to the offer?

I got accepted to Baylor on Dec. 1 and I had to accept their invitation by Jan. 8, but now that I got Houston's acceptance I withdrew my application from Baylor! So hopefully someone amazing gets my spot there. :)

Has anyone received any late interviews? From last years thread, it seems like they gave some interview invites out around this time :nailbiting:

Did you had to put down a deposit for Baylor?

I know that school is closed today due to holiday. They suppose to send out some letters by next week I think. I had my interview late Jan. They said class is less than half full.

If you don't receive an email from the school about them not getting your letter of intent, then they have it. Rene told me that she only contacts those who haven't sent theirs/if there were problems of any kind.
