I've seen people have gotten invites as well as deferred. What if you haven't received either? Probably still going through the applications?
I’m in the same boat, applied on June 16th and hadn’t received anything yet. I’m sure that they are going through applications since it’s still early in the process

Just got an email notifying me that my application got Deferred.
I did ask one of the students in D2 about if there is any chance of being deferred to get accepted, he said that non on his class was deferred before they got accepted.
I guess this is a nice way of sending rejections.
any different opinions?

I would like to know what is the interview format at Iowa?
The interviews are 2 15 minute interviews with 2 people in the room each time. So 4 people total.
But as to who interviews, Iowa likes to pick a variety of individuals. It could be a top professor of the college or even a janitor.
I have also heard that they will ask questions but give no sort of feedback or indication that you have finished answering the question.

Any interview tips from anyone who's already done theirs?
Be yourself, dress appropriately, get lots of rest, relax, relax, and be yourself! Everyone is really nice and remember you are there! Review interview questions but don't memorize. Also, truly ask yourself why this profession? Good luck! You got this!!!

Yeah that's interesting because I don't believe North Dakota has a dental school and usually they like to take residents with no dental school. I'm sorry, but if you really want to go to Iowa then Private Message me with your stats and I can see where your application might need a little help at.

Yea it’s really frustrating cause it doesn’t give us an opportunity for the instate tuition prices.. they have wiche but they give that to like 4 students.. I’ve heard Minnesota doesn’t have reciprocity for professional programs but unsure if it’s true
