    hi everyone,

    i was wondering if i had the application process right...
    i took the DAT in july and requested my scores be sent to the schools. then i summited my application to the AADSAS on aug 26th, and sent the supplemental materials (money+pictures) that stated on Table 20 to the schools 3 days later. requested my letters of rec to be sent to the schools directly. i just received the acknowledgement letter from AADSAS last wk...now im praying for interviews...my questions are...does anyone know approx. when AADSAS will send my application to the schools? wonder if i had done all the necessary steps to get my application out to the school...did i miss anything? also, i've read some posts that mentioned about secondaries...when do you get that? do all schools have secondaries? i just know that upenn does. pls let me know your response and if that's how you had submited your application. thanks a millions!

    Unless they changed the procedures significantly since I applied to dental school in 2000, it sounds to me like you covered all the bases.

    Good luck with the interviews!

    i ahve had an equally frustrating time with AADSAS I sen tin my application on JULY 25TH and it went out last tuesday. Any idea what the hold up was?? I think it was ridiculous. but so yeah I don't think that you are in any different a situation from me. What number application were you?? and what batch?

    EAK27,

    EAK, I understand your frustration, but you aren't the only one. I sent my app. in on the first day, and have an AADSAS# less than 10. My wait for the app. to get sent out was actually longer than your wait!
