Has anyone else received an email saying that you are likely to be offered an interview, but they are just working on finalizing the details?

Figure it was a generic email sent to all applicants who met baseline criteria.
 
Does anyone here know what the grading system is like at UW? And is attendance required for lectures? Are lectures available online?
 
Hey everyone, I'm sure the class rep in the class above you will reach out to you soon. If anyone has questions for a third year dental student at UW, you're welcome to message me directly

Grading system was graded until covid came around. Haven't heard any updates yet, but personally think it'll go back to graded once covid fiasco is over. Lectures are held online. I hope you guys get lectures in person eventually. It's just not the same. Regarding if mandatory or not, can someone from class of 2023 or 2024 chime in?
 
I got an email this week saying I’d likely be invited for an interview, did anyone else get one this week?

Yes, I did today! I'm hoping it's not just a generic email and actually means an interview invite is coming.

They reserve the time for you. If you're not available on the date/time, they will put you on wait list for future date.
As for the the date of submission, it was late June. Think it was around June 23rd.

I am OOS and received "you are likely to be offered an interview" email a while ago. Any OOSs get an interview yet?
 
Hi who here has had their interview already and wouldn’t mind answering some questions?
 
Are they still going with the MMI format this year? Also did anyone receive additional details after confirming your invite?

Hey everyone, I interviewed as part of UWSOD’s 9/17 interview block, and remember hearing mention from their Director of Admissions and Recruitment, Memory Brock, of a Student Q&A panel. Does anyone have any insight as to when that will take place? Many thanks, and best of luck this cycle!
 
Does anyone know if it'd be a good/bad idea to call them about my application status? UW is my top pick, but I haven't received anything from them other than the "application received" email. Seems like they silently rejected me. :(

3.1/2.9 (s)
19 AA, 19 TS, 17 PAT, 19 RC, 21 QR
~500 shadowing, ~200 volunteer, ~1500 working, president of dental club for 2 years
Application received 8/11
WA resident

I was in a similar situation last year with same gpa, higher dat scores (22 TS, 21 AA, 16 PAT) and extracurriculars. I did receive an interview in October, however was later waitlisted. I was told I must retake my DAT and take a few more post bacc classes. I did take the DAT again (24 TS, 22 AA, 20 PAT), and took a few more post bacc classes. This was personally what my situation was and what I did to fix it. I would also recommend setting an appointment with Ms. Memory Brock to see the status of your application and how you can make it stronger.
 
Did anyone that received an interview invite for the 10th not yet get the details for an interview? I got the invite last Thursday and they said to email confirming the date and I haven’t heard Anything back yet. Not sure at what point I should contact them since the interview is coming up this Saturday and I dont yet know what time it will be (or have confirmation).

Same here! I’m waiting it out today to see if I get a response and plan to follow up with another email either later today or early tomorrow morning.

I got emails today giving me the zoom link to the info session for Thursday, but still no info on the actual interview
 
Received Interview invite last week for an October date as an in-state 28 DAT and 3.98/3.98 GPA
 
Was anyone here asked to pay $50 for your interview fee?
 
For those who have interviewed, are the questions on sdn interview feedback similar to the types of questions asked during the interview?

No not at all like the questions on here. It’s a totally different format but not bad at all. One of my more relaxed interviews
