Did anyone get a notification that their application is complete yet?
I submitted mine midnight of June 16th and submitted the supplemental app + fee a week prior.

I have done the same thing, and I have received an email saying that my app has received and verified on AADSAS application.

But my AADSAS status still says Received/Waiting additional info.

So I wanted to know like i did not do so well in my undergrad, got a very low gpa but then i just did a biomedical science masters and my Gpa was 3.7+ and on my DAT i got AA 20. I also have a lot of shadowing and dental assisting experience. With this information would anyone be able to tell me my chances of getting into dental schools?

Chicago has a rolling admissions process that goes until April, so I’m thinking they probably take their time interviewing applicants. I wouldn’t worry too much yet! Especially with Covid and decision day being later than usual this year. :)

I actually don't believe that person received the interview. They claimed they "just" got the interview at 7:39 PM CST. Really? They don't send out invites that late. But who knows maybe they did receive it, but I highly doubt it. So don't worry too much!

I actually did receive an interview e-mail last year (from a different school) at 11pm and a girl I know received one after 7pm this year. So it is kind of odd, but possible! Everyone hang in there! We will get those invites!

I feel ya on that. I actually have to retake my DAT in a couple of weeks so I’m not expecting any invites yet anyway. Maybe that’s why I’m less anxious about it lol

Sorry I was too busy preparing for the interview. I actually already had it two days ago, if you want me to attach the email I could. The first day of interviews was 2 days ago and there's more next week. I am not sure why other people haven't said anything but I am sure they will soon. I thought I was being helpful with discussing that I had received an interview, they are still sending out interviews though by different groups. Hope that helps! Best of luck.

Would you mind telling us about your experience and how everything is done with things being online this year?

Congrats to you!!!!

I'm slightly confused,I received my complete email the first week of August. I thought it was rolling admissions?

I got my app complete email on July 20th, with no interview invite.
I think they recently started to review applications so they're looking at all the applications at the same time regardless of when they were submitted.
Either that, or they just decided I'm not a good enough in-state applicant to receive an interview invite.

Hey guys. Interviewing early next week and was just wondering if anyone else is a little confused regarding the virtual tour/information session. In the email it states that the sessions occur the 2nd and 4th Friday of every month and you are supposed to attend the session following your interview week. But then it gives an example stating that if you interview on a Monday you would attend the information session on Friday of that week.

We are supposed to attend the meeting AFTER our interview and not before it correct? The email was a bit vague about this and I just want to make sure. My interview is early next week but there is not an information session until the week after (not the week of my interview). Would that be the informations session I attend? Thank you in advance!

Hey there, I interviewed last week and I had my friday session today. You would probably be doing the information session two weeks from today.
