Hey guys, I need some advice.
I sent in my app 6/16 when it opened. However, my app was completed roughly a month later (7/10) because my advisors uploaded my committee letter late.
So far, I only got 1 interview.
My stats are: GPA (both): 3.5
DAT AA & TS are 20. QR is 16, Reading 20, Orgo 25, Gen Chem 19, BIO 20, PAT 20.
Dental Assistant for 5 years at one clinic only. Did volunteer work. Have committee letter.
The status on all my other NYC/NJ/PA schools on AADSAS is “Under Review”.

Do I consider myself out of luck with the other schools, or do I still have a shot at landing an interview? All of them have already began sending out invites to applicants and from what I see on SDN, the earliest date for an interview is surpassing mid December for some of them.
Let me know please! First time applying and I’m anxious, I always want to have back up school if one doesn’t accept.

A lot of the schools you applied to are quite competitive. I imagine the interview you got will not be your last one, based on what you’ve told me, but I’m thinking they’ll be for post december, nothing wrong with that.
