Any tips for the interview?
Honestly, this is so cliche and I hate when people say this to me, but it’s true: be yourself. I am normally very bubbly and enthusiastic, and I was in the interview (I was a little worried I may come across looking stupid at first, but I really was just so excited to be there) and it was very relaxing. Don’t change yourself based on what you think they’re looking for! It was a great two-way conversation that didn’t feel like my interviewer was drilling me with any questions.

Has anyone tried contacting them for an application status check? If so, did you email or call and which phone number?

Yes they will invite you for an interview again if you’ve shown improvements in aspects of shadowing, DAT, productivity, GPA, and all that good stuff.

I know multiple people that have interviewed at the same school even three times! It’s all about improvement like this person said. Do a masters to show you are able to integrate into challenging courses, score higher on your dat to show you have proficient study habits and knowledge, and lastly all around increase your volunteering and shadowing hours to show your dedication to dentistry. Good luck!

3.3oGPA 3.12sGPA 3.07BBCP 23AA, 23TS, 30o-chem. My DAT last year was 21AA and my GPA's were about the same. I have added significant shadowing hours and community service hours as well as stronger recommendations. I hope to hear something soon.

I agree with the people earlier, this interview was very laid back, one on one, and with friendly faculty! Very nice school!

Would a ND resident Have much of a chance at either Kentucky programs?

Yeah, Louisville is very OOS friendly. I got an interview from Florida. more than half of their class consists of OOS students as well. I think 70%

I came here to say the same thing. You’ve got wonderful stats, and with a good personal statement and experience I’m sure you’ll have a case!

Thank you! Yea I was pre-med until like last October so most of my experiences are tailored towards that.. like 1000 hours as a hospital orderly, 1500 as a Nurse aide, 2000 Usda research hours and I’ve been a covid contact tracer for a while now too.. tough when you home state doesn’t have a dental school but it is what it is! Good luck you two!

I hate that QR, it is such a useless piece of crap, I don't even know why it is even part of DAT....

QR was so hard for me!!! I struggled badly on that and got a 16 on it. Ugh
Yea I had the kindest of wanting to work through each question which of course wasted tim so I was only halfway through with like 10 min left.. as I started filling in random answers I realized how many easy ones I could have gotten but simply didn’t have time.. had no issues and lots of extra time with the rest of the test

How did you guys answer the question "Why Louisville?" in the AADSAS application.? I think I didn't answer too well on that one. I am not sure if that has any impact on interview prospects.

they didn't even ask me that lol. I would avoid thinking about the interview, we as applicants always wish we answered better to the questions and think we didn't do good. I'm sure you did well so block it out haha
