    Maybe not the last time, but according to the girl in the adm office all the seats should be filled this monday. Sad times. I'm crossing my fingers.....

    How is that possible? I know someone who has an interview at UNLV on March 15th. I wonder if the interview is just for the alternate list?

    Makes sense. I interviewed in January and half their class was filled at that point. Then they sent out a round of acceptances at the end of January which probably ended up filling around 50 to 55 of their seats (out of 75).

    When I had the interview invitation from UNLV for March 15, I asked
    them if it was for alternate position and they said its not. So I think
    this means there are some spots left. Keep your hopes alive.

    Just to clarify, the girl I called on Thursday or Friday last week (2-23ish) said that the committee was meeting monday. I asked her if all the of seats are full yet and she said no but they will be after the committee meets. Obviously if somebody doesn't accept their acceptance than more seats will open up and the newly interviewed people will still have a shot. I've pretty much given up hope cuz I interviewed in October.

    I think what happened is i didn't get a very high score on the formula that they use that takes into consideration your interview scores, both gpas, and certain DAT scores (my sci GPA is only 3.11). Oh well, you can win them all.

    they would have waitlisted you though. they didn't do that meaning they might draft you in the 3rd round

    I think that they said that they are going to meet either today or tomorrow i can't remember what Brownstein said during our interview i think he may have said the 27th which after looking at a calendar is tomorrow not today. If any one does know how they inform you that would be great info. I would imagine since everything else has been through email that they would continue to use that method. Are most of us waiting in-state or out-of-state applicants? :thumbup: :thumbdown:

    Just kidding I hope that we both get in ( just me first). I wish i was a resident and then life would not be so stressful or expensive even though at UNLV you can become on after the first 12 months.

    I also called in today. They said to call in on Wednesday to check your status. Being that I have never been accepted here (nor has anyone else in this thread I presume) I don't know how they'll tell us whether or not we're in. However, I am going to call. I've called many times in the past, and they are very nice. They don't look down upon it. I too am out of state! Good luck to everyone!

    I called to check my status this morning and heard those aweful words " You have been placed on the waitlist for now."

    In other words thanks for applying, but you are not good enough to be offered a spot, but we will keep you as a back up in case the day before school starts someone doesn't show up because they got accepted to a better or cheaper school, and you want to scrabble and get things together and pay us the money that he or she was going to then we consider you good enough to take their spot. I think it is just a nice way to let you down, because we are all good enough to be in the program, but unfortunately they don't have spots for all of us. I wish all you super smart talented jerks would just stop applying. Just kidding. and good luck to everyone waiting for the "Judgement" and if you do not want to go there please tell them earlier and maybe I will be "drafted" from the waitlist.

    I HATE the waitlist. I am on it at 2 schools with no real opportunity to attend. This sucks. I guess school is not in the cards for me this year.

    me too. still "no decision" on my file. Maybe we're somewhere in between the waitlist and the accepted people? Or maybe nobody has the heart to just reject us yet.......

    just called, found out "no decision".. i guess its better then being waitlisted, because I'd rather have a "yes or no" answer..I'm in state and hoping there is at least a couple spots open..for the final review on march 15th..seriously i havent gotten any sleep and i think i need go to walgreens to pick up some meds after work..

    this really sucks.. :(


    anyone know how many in state are left??

    I also called in this morning and heard the words "well it looks like they have not made any final decisions. They will meet again at the end of March for their final review." What I heard: "Hey, you can't even get on the waitlist." I also interviewed back in December. At the time they told "by the end of Jan. we'll have a decision." When I called at the end of Jan. they said that no decision had been made, but by "the end of Feb we will have made a decision." And of course, no surprise, they have now postponed me to the end of March. At this rate I'm not going to hear "no" until the day before class begins. I don't get it.

    Why don't you all stop complaining? This is the dental school, believe me if you are getting stressed about not getting in, wait till you can't get dentures for a patient fitted right after the 15th try!

    Just relax, think positive and let it go, you have done the best you could. I wish everyone good luck, but in all honestly, stop dwelling on the negativity and start thinking of the positive end of things. That is just my two cents.

    has anyone ever called them in Febraury and heard the word "rejected"?
    if not, we will assume that no dicision=rejection ... bc no dicision cannt be waitlist if they are using both "no dicision" and "waitlisted"
    logic is very simple and understandable
    i think i am going to say goodbye to unlv then

    i specifically asked them if they had done so. they told me that they dont reject anyone until the class is filled from the interviewed pool. there are at least 5 people on sdn waiting to get off "no decision" to the accepted pile. think about how many of those there are in the same situation who do not know about sdn. i'd say we have a very slim to no chance of getting admitted.

    This thread has caused a lot calls to UNLV SDM.. anyways.. did you speak numbers w/ them anonymous..? Like how many instate and out of state still available? And also..what do you think chances are if your actually in state.. because I know out of state at this stage of the game is going to be crazy competitive..

    well if you look at past stats, it's about 50:50=instate:oops:utstate. they told me that the seats are currently filled. so how many seats still available for either in/outstate are currently 0.

    i dont like the fact that sometimes some people use some phrases which make no sense eg. "no decision"

    anyways, i guess depending on who you talked to over the phone at the office of admissions, you heard "waitlisted" or "no decision"

    i gave up
