    I thought I would start a new thread for dental school applicants who have been waitlisted for the 2018-2019 application cycle. I saw some waitlist groups for earlier years, and I thought it might be helpful to have some mutual support in a time of stress. It doesn't matter if you've been waitlisted once or 9 times, if you have no acceptances right now or are waiting for your dream school, please feel free to comment & share advice.

    Here's hoping to a lot of movement this year, and good luck to all of you!

    I am currently waitlisted at four schools

    Waitlisted at USC and UDM. Decision pending for WesternU. Interviewed last week. Probably waitlisted. Will interview at UNE this week. Given its small class size and the fact that it's already February, I'm not loving my chances there either.

    This must be the reason why my gray hairs are multiplying in my early 20s.

    When did you know that you were waitlisted at ASDOH and when did you interview there if you don't mind me asking?

    Oh I haven't interviewed there. I haven't heard anything since applying. Every other school has rejected me already.

    What should we do to stand out from all others on the schools waitlist. I don't think waiting is good enough. Has anyone done anything???

    Why don’t you start sending letter of intent (interest). Describe why that school is your number one and how you are also the best fit for them. Best of luck!

    I've done this to the admissions counselors, they know I really want to attend their school. Do you think I should send one to the Dean? I'm completely out of ideas of what I can do
