    Hey Danny, this is Chris. I interviewed the same day as you and my status says alternate too. But, since they said the admissions committee wasn't going to meet again until the end of February, I wouldn't make too much of it. I think several of the admissions people have actually been out of town. They probably have put all the recent interviewees in that status pending review from the committee. Do you agree?

    I seriously doubt that is true. From what I saw while at USC interviewing the school is top notch. They have excellent passage rates of the national board exams with some of the highest scores in the country and is known nationally for producing some of the best clinicians in the country. I doubt USC, with it's long history of excellent education and thousands of successful alumni, of all the schools in the country would be one in danger of losing its accreditation.

    Hi Skievans
    You might be right on that but on ADA's website the accreditation status for usc is "accreditation with reporting requirements" and that means if usc doesn't improve on whatever ADA has asked them to then usc is definitely in trouble.
    I agree usc was one of the best schools at one time but I am kind a WORRIED after reading its accriditation status.
    By the way did u apply for advanced standing DDS or the regular DDS?

    Usc is not the only one with that status ( Tufts, Nova SE and oklohama are too).. Each school has the evaludation done in certain time frame..at some point other schools have gone through the same thing and have improved and are still running.. so dont be WORRIED :p ..its nothing unique.. USC is there to stay accredited.. :thumbup: did you get into ASPID at USC parvati??

    Some schools do have that by their accreditation, but If remember correctly, as long as a particular dental school's accreditation is active (with or without reporting requirement) AT THE TIME OF Admission those students are OK to be licensed, if I am not mistaken - correct me if I am wrong

    Hey guys, I also had an interview at USC Dental School January 29th and unlike some of you guys I didn't get the acceptance email on Feb 26th (Congratulations to all of you that did I am sure that it must be a great feeling). I was just wondering if anybody knows if they are going to be sending more emails out in the first few weeks of march or if the march batch is over with? Also since I didn't get an acceptance email, does anybody have any idea if there is still a good shot off of the alternate list? USC is my number one choice and I would be so thankful to be apart of the class of 2013
