I just saw that it takes CASPER three weeks to send results out to schools. I took my test a week ago, and have all my application materials otherwise finished and paid for. Is there still a good chance I could be considered for the first interview cycle?

So I took the CASPER June 28th, and this morning at 5:03 my status was changed from "waiting for material" to "completed/under review". Hopefully that gives you all a rough timeline on what to expect!

Has anyone received an interview invite yet?
Also I heard all interviews this year will be virtual interviews, no in person.
I called the admissions office and I was told that they will be sending out interview invites any time in August. Also, they’re preparing to send invites 2 weeks prior to the date. The reason they’re doing this is because it’s going to be virtual interviews.

Yeah I actually thought the CASPER test was pretty fun, too. It's good to take the practice test to get a feel for it (I only clicked through the questions and didn't answer them for the practice test, just to see what they would ask). Definitely don't stress it too much, especially considering you don't even get to see your scores. I haven't heard anything either regarding interviews, though

Smiles and china, what are your other stats if you don't mind me asking.. Lots of volunteering and shadowing? Kentucky and Louisville are two schools I'm really hoping for but I'm lacking in the shadowing and volunteering categories with about 120 hrs of shadowing and 80 volunteering
Those are plenty of hours! As long as you're able to communicate what you accomplished and learned in those hours, you're golden. I have about 330 shadowing hours and 380 volunteer hours. Just remember quality over quantity so don't feel discouraged if you don't have a ton of hours. Keep reflecting on the experiences that you already have and keep your passion for dentistry alive!

I come here to echo this message. I had much less than smiles and am about the same as you in regard to shadowing and volunteer. But send me PM and we can talk more about other stats/experiences if you’d like

Did you all who received interview invites get something about a caper snapshot first emailed to you? Congrats by the way.
And also, were all invites today sent to only out of state students?
No, the CASPer Snapshot was talking about in my interview invitation email. Also, I am an out of state student - I hope this helps!

Ahh great job, y'all! My application was completed 7/23, so hopefully I'll be notified in the next interview period. I also received the email regarding the CASPER Snapshot, but no confirmation on whether or not I was invited for interview!

Same thing happened to me! I got an interview saying "IF you get invited for an interview, we'll need you to take it" but it didn't say whether I got an interview or not. I'm just assuming I didn't lol.

My ADEA AADSAS Status changed to “invited for interview” for Louisville; I would check that just to be sure. I hope this helps!

I would also take into account when you submitted your app. If it was completed in July like mine, you may be selected for a later interview instead. :)

Anyone still have their status say "waiting for additional information" and took the CASPer test weeks ago? I took the CASPer back in early July and I logged on to CASPer and it said my scores were already sent. However, I did get the email about CASPer Snapshot so maybe they just haven't updated my portal? Any ideas?

Hmm, interesting. I think I’d contact the admissions office and see, just in case!

It took my app to be complete 3 weeks after taking the CASPer. I think it takes 2 weeks for CASPer to score and send them to schools. Then Louisville took a week to probably get them sorted.

they emailed me saying that they got my casper scores yesterday and my portal still says "waiting for additional info"
It’ll be updated soon. They’ll send you another email saying your application is now under review, and then you go ahead and check AADSAS.

NOTE: They will send 1 email saying they received everything, then another that your application is under review!
