Hey all!

I hope the cycle is going well for everyone. I applied late July and was mailed 9/4. I have a 3.6 and a 20AA, with tons of EC (college athlete), shadowing, volunteering etc but I haven't heard back from any schools since completing my secondarys. I applied to 15 schools. Should I be worrying or thinking about sending an email to schools on my status? I know some schools say directly don't contact them, but others don't say anything. Just looking for some input!

Thanks!

It's still too early to start worrying. I have only heard back from 1 school too, and I was mailed the same time as you. Just start doing something else to take your mind off of it.

Only thing I can think is they haven't reviewed my app yet. Lots of people getting interviews with stats lower than mine and I have tons of Ec, volunteer etc. I don't know, I'm sick of waiting that's for sure.

The more I think about it though, maybe they just saw my 2x2 photo and were like dang this kids ugly and threw my file out.
Lol my thought exactly. I was like maybe this person is too ugly and fat to be a dentist.. Nevermind. Let's moving on. Ughh. I havent heard anything this week either.

Just an update for those of you keeping score. 0 interviews, 0 contact. I've resorted to smoke signals over my house in the form of a wisdom tooth. Maybe that will get somebody's attention. Some people have like 12 interviews (they probably wear crocs) already wow ya'll are the real MVPs. Keeping the atmosphere light for some good reading. Maybe I'll write a novel instead?

Same boat here except I have one rejection. I'm dying.

In fact, our stats are similar and apps were mailed around the same time.

I'm highly convinced thay they just look at my 2x2 and put me in the "nope, too fat, too ugly, look way to clumpsy to be a dentist" file..
