Hello, thanks that is very kind of you. I was wondering if there are any Canadians in your class?

I do not believe that there are any Canadians in my class, but that is not to say that there are not Canadians in any other class.

Does anyone's status say "received/ waiting additional information" even though they submitted the supplemental fee?
 
The school sometimes doesn't update your AADSAS profile immediately (don't know why but that's just the way it can be). My portal said waiting for additional information up until I got invited for an interview. If you are missing something in your application, they will tell you. Just be patient and trust the process!
 
I just received an invitation to interview today with a set, in-person interview date of 9/8 - IS

AADSAS still says none under VCU.

Hi, do you know when the next batch of interview invitations will be sent out?

They don't tell us when they send out the interview invitations. But from experience I can say that they send out a very large amount throughout the fall and we have plenty of interview days.

Should I retake my DAT is I scored a 16 in a subsection? Overall AA is a 21
 
Only if they won’t accept <17 subscore minimums. Some schools require everything to be >17. I would email and ask. But if it’s QC or RC you’d probably be fine
PAT unfortunately
 
Is anyone using a Canadian DAT score to apply? I asked CDA to ship my DAT score two months ago and reshipped another order last month but VCU still did not receive it.

Ship scores??? I thought the CDA has a secure portal for registered admissions officers to access CDAT scores. I'm surprised if their office doesn't access the portal...

Just an update, they said they received my score by now.

Congrats to everyone who has received interviews so far! For those who are still waiting, be patient because there are plenty more interview days left in the cycle. If you have already interviewed or will be interviewing at VCU, or you are still waiting for an interview invitation, please feel free to reach out with questions about the process or the interview day.

Mine changed from none to invited for interview as well. Did anyones portal not change? Just curious.
 
Does anyone know if VCU sends a second batch of acceptances? And if they do, does anyone know around what time?
