    thanks to everyone for wishing me ...each of us needs it!and i hope all of us who are working so hard should get in !!
    well ,what i know about UPENN is that they call most of their applicants ..so their rejection rate is equally high.. :mad:
    what they actually want from their candidate till now noone knows..so its all luck and how you perform in interview ..so good luck to everyone and dont dishearten who didnt get call till now ..im sure soon it will be in your mail!!its just a matter of time :luck:

    Hi all,

    I would really appreciate if someone who already had an interview with UPENN tell me the questions asked? Also, I have heard that they ask clinical questions during the interview, is that true? I have not given my part II, would that affect the interview?

    Thanks in advance.

    hey Indian bds...
    everybody shares their stats here so that people who are applying have some idea of where they stand....before getting your interview you were all enthusiastic....now u have got it and your are acting like a person who doesn't care ... comeon man whosoever has been called for interview stands a chance better than who doesn't...If you expect other people to share information with you it will be better to just write down your stats in a thread rather than telling people to search it all over the website....be nice...trust me it will help you......and last but not least ....u are not the only one who is stuggling here...everybody is working as hard as you have ...

    im sorry ...i didnt understand by what u meant..plus i didnt say anyone to search anywhere but i posted twice on upenn thread ..[one which was active before and chances with my score] so i said..i have nothing to hide ...please dont write things when you are not aware of
    neways im writing my stats again ..and sorry if anyone misunderstood by what i meant
    part 1 89
    gpa 3.75
    toefl 95[im retaking on 26th aug]
    i have work experience in india 1year and in US 1 year
    also ,i worked on sop ...can say it worked for me
    I showed them my research inclination and my interests
    so please everyone applying to schools dont neglect this part...i think they consider it...also this is my perception!!so just dont go by it!!

    and please apexlocator ..dont say unless know!!
    and i never behaved as if i dont care ..i have been saying early interview doesnot mean you are in ...everyone 'll get chance ..just a matter of time !!
    we all are here to help each other ...not to squabble

    hey R_vaidya
    as far as i know through upenn threads and talking to people in UPENN ...its a personal interview they dont ask about clinical thing ..they can ask about your experience as dentist but wont shoot up with clinical q's reagarding rct's .inlays onlays ..blah blah
    i know its a pain in ass if you are not done with part 2..so do i ..and expect you shd know everything ..i dont think that true
    but i just know one person had been asked about crown prep ..and im sure if you are prep for practical exam for california u'll definately go through that...i know couple of people in UPENN they said its all personal interview rather more of conversation...
    hope that has mitigated your pain :luck:

    Hi Indian BDS,

    Thanks for responding. I went through old threads on UPENN and just as you said came across someone who was asked about crown prep. I have not been in touch with Dentistry for the past 3 years and also not preparing for the Calif exams. With NDB II not given, I am not very comfortable answering the clinical Qs.

    BUt thanks for the clarification and all the best for your interview. Please let us know how it goes and the Qs asked. THis will help tremendously everyone on this thread.

    Thanks,
    RV

    hi, just wonder where you want to stay for the interview. divine tracy is not on the list this year and most of the hotels on upenn's list are very expensive. does anyone have any idea of picking a reasonable hotel? thanks

    Hai
    congrats on the interview invitation.can u please tell me if we can attach a separate paper for goals(personal statement),instead of writing there in the space given, there is very little space provided. I Have prepared a separate personal statement so was wondering if I can attach that.Also let me know how many words it should be.I have tried calling but no response.
    thank you.
