    Howdy!

    Has anyone applied to UHCO and NOT heard back yet? I know many people with interview invites from UHCO, so I am very concerned. My application was mailed off by OptomCAS on 9/5 and I did call them mid-September just to make sure everything was received. I wasn't sure if it was okay to call again to check up on the status of my application :/

      I called them once a while back to check my application status, she asked if I had all three of my letters of rec turned in and also when I took my OAT. Both of them were done well before that and she looked them up then said my application would be sent to committee. Being impatient and curious as to why I didn't hear back from them I called again like a week later and asked the same thing.. And so did she for some reason. So for some reason it didn't get sent to committee right away and she had to look everything up again. But after the second phone call she said it would be sent to committee again, but this time it actually was thank god. So call again for sure. You're not bothering anybody and the sooner it goes to committee the better.

        Thank you! I ended up calling them this morning and was told "your application is ready to be reviewed." I wasn't sure if that meant it was already sent or not, but she said I can hear back as soon as this week or the end of the cycle :(

          Still haven't heard back yet :/ Mine was mailed back all the way back on Sept 1. My stats aren't horrible, I don't think...meh.
          Have you tried calling or emailing them? I called once last wk and spoke to Tiffany Robinson. She told me my app is being sent to committee and will be reviewed but she can't tell me when they'll get to me because she doesn't know..

            Yup, I was told the same thing. I wonder if they send out rejection letters early on or if they wait until the very end? I rather know now :/

              Oh wow, I also heard back from all the schools I've applied to except UHCO and my optomcas was sent 9/25 and UHCO received it on 10/4. My stats aren't terrible either I think.... I called them, and fyi Tiffany is out of office right now (she's sick). Does it usually take 1 month to review an application? It's weird though b/c a friend of mine submitted her optomcas 1 week after me and already has an interview next week. At least I'm not the only one waiting too.

                What are your stats and your friend's stats if you don't mind me asking? I think UHCO goes by the 700 scale rule. The closer you are to 700 the faster they contact you for an interview..

                  Sorry to revive an older thread, but is anyone else waiting on UHCO? They keep on telling me my application is waiting to be reviewed, but they received my application all the way back on September 5 :(

                    I sent mine back in October and when I called them in November they said it was sent to committee and I would hear from them in 1-2 weeks...which I never did. I would have called them again, but they weren't really on the top of my list and I fortunately gained admission to my top choice. At one of my interviews, a couple of other people also said that UHCO was the only school they hadn't heard from. However, I would be considered international and the other people I spoke with also would have been out-of-state, and as it seems UHCO has a strong preference for in-state-students, this may be a contributing factor.

                    I would definitely call them again because from what I've heard, their office seems very disorganized :/

                      Congratulations on getting into your first choice! I'm actually from Houston, so I'm definitely In-State :( Sigh. I'll try giving them a call later today. Thanks for the response.

                        I would definitely give them another call in that case! In-state tuition would be AMAZING! I applied because I have family in Houston, but I will always be out of state unfortunately. Best of luck!! And thank you :)
