i have fairly average stats and I havent received any interviews yet. Anyone heard from meharry or howard? I see people with really high stats getting interviews at meharry which is a bit different than last year.

Now is not time to panic! Yes, many people on SDN will have had 8 interviews already and have another 12 lined up, but there is still a looooooong window of opportunity to get your first interview and a good chance at acceptance.
I too had average stats when I applied last cycle. At this date last year I was almost embarrassed that I hadn't received a single interview and was staying very quite with my posts here. But given a little more time, some interviews rolled in, and shortly into the new year I received my acceptances. Following the cycle very closely last year there were plenty of people on these boards who had to wait until after December before they got their multiple interviews, and multiple acceptances. Just be patient with the whole process and you will most likely get your shot.
I am a minority so hoping that something works out. I don't know if it helps. All I know is that I want to get into dental school by December so I can start a new year and new life. This has been going on for way too long. I am a third time applicant, turning 24 next year, single and sad! lol
Just added a few bits here because it seems that everyone has got their life started... one thing that does amaze me is that avg age of dental school student in first year is 24. Age is just a number,I know, but there are times when you feel like you are sick of waiting and worrying every single day!
So lets hope and pray for an interview and acceptance by December 2008.
