Hmmm do they have cutoffs?
 
Anyone got a supplemental email for the fee? I still haven't paid it, as I am waiting for the email.
 
I did. Application was verified on the 6th and received the email last week.

Verified on the 6th of this month, or June? I got verified late June and still haven’t received a thing. Wondering if I should contact adcom.

6th of June. I honestly wouldn’t contact anyone. If the application went through it’s only a matter of time.

Does anyone else's decision status on AADSAS still say "None"? I submitted early July and haven't received an email to pay the supplemental fee. I know you can go on the site and pay the fee, but apparently you shouldn't(?):
Although there is no official deadline, it is highly recommended that applicants submit the UCLA secondary application fee within three (3) weeks of receiving the instructions by email from the Student Services Office. To prevent delays, please do not submit the secondary fee to the School of Dentistry before receiving the email notification.
I've emailed them, but waiting for a response.

@artist2022, your thoughts?

Don't pay until they email you to pay. Paying in advance of the notification will just delay your app, it doesn't help your app at all.

Hmmmm I still have “waiting additional information” on mine :/
 
I’ve still got “none”. No supplemental fee email yet either
 
I paid the supplemental fee. But still it says - “waiting additional information”
 
Got the supplemental fee email today, paid the fee right after seeing it. AADSAS verified 07/02 submitted 06/27
 
I got their email today too and paid the fee but never got a confirmation email after making the payment. Do they send out the supplemental fee email to everyone?

Also received supplemental fee email today, 7/21 submission date. I received a thank you for your payment confirmation email after submitting payment

Did you get the confirmation email immediately after submitting your payment? I also received the supplemental fee email today (submitted 8/1) but haven’t received the confirmation of fee payment email yet.

Yes it was right after. I used debit, maybe if you use credit it takes a bit longer?

My confirmation email ended up in spam so I would check there - I also got it right after I paid.
 
I think it's just random that some ppl get the confirmation email. I checked with few other friends and they never got it either after they made their payment

has anyone heard anything since 10/9?
They call almost every day I believe, and will keep doing interviews every Monday and Friday, so just be patient! They've only done three rounds of interviews so far and it's like 7-10 people each time. The interview was really chill and conversational, I really really liked my first faculty interviewer.

So it’s like a group interview ?

Nope, the zoom is a group for the info sessions but then I was put in breakout rooms for two separate one on one interviews with faculty
