You can go to any ups centre in shopping complexes they will have a notary person who can notarize your copies of transcript and degree certificate.There will be postal centres also in shopping areas where there will be notary.you need not contact your university.If u do not find UPS centre you can even enquire in your bank and they can guide you.Hope this helps.

Check their minimum requirement. I know that if your score is even one point below their requirment they will not accept your application so it's better to apply to any school w/ minimum scores that they list.

hey guys! you apply directly through them, not CAAPID. And yes you need part I only to apply but it wouldn't hurt to have part II.
I have a question for those of you that have applied already. I went on to check the status of my application and they show that my application is incomplete, it only shows that the translation of transcript and diploma have not been recieved!:confused: I'm freaking out because i know that i sent that stuff. My question is does it take a while for them to review it and that's why it shows that that stuff is incomplete? HOw can i get a hold of them instead of an answering machine? Is there an email i can get a hold of them at?
thanks

Hello, I have the same problem, my application online show that the english translation is not received. I have a question, should the translation be an ATA certified?

Thanks Guys! I spoke to someone who's already gone through the application process and they said that if they need anything else they will contact us. And that it does take a while to process the info! Hopefully we'll get a "complete" application soon! Good luck EVeryone!
YOu know i'm not sure about the ATA Translation. I don't know if it's required to have it translated by someone certified. I did though because of the other school's I applied to. But i'm sure it will be ok.

attaching our resume/CV wont hurt for sure. some universities specifically mention not to attach resume with the application, there you can avoid. since UIC doesnt say so, i think we can include that in the application packet.
regarding SOP, is anywhere mentioned how many characters are supposed to be present?? i didnt knew that. mine is also short.

This university is extremely difficult to get intouch with. I called about 2.5 weeks ago and left a message. Noone returned the call. I sent an e-mail to them about a week ago and no returned e-mail. Since I was born and raised in the US (1st language is English)and went to Dental School in another country, I wnated to know which documents I need to send to them inorder to be waived from the TOEFL. if anyone is in a similiar situation, can you please let me know. My application has been ready for a while, but I haven't sent it since I am not sure of the TOEFL. Thanks.

Same here, my understanding is that pending manual review is actually the process that separates those that will be invited for IV from those that for some reason do not present an interest for the school. They always invite more potential students for IV than available spots. Hope that helped.

All the lines should be filled out. It takes about 3-4 weeks until they fill that, too many applications. It takes time, also until not long time ago they were busy with the regular addmissions, so be patient, I know is hard. I dont see my toefl line but I know that they received it because the application is complete, otherwise it would have been incomplete. Heads up, even between us someone will be accepted someone not I know haow that is. God Bless Us All.
