Michael Wolcott (he/him)
27:50
Please include you questions about the TIMELINE
Tyler Jones

Michael Wolcott (he/him)

Thank you Tyler and Jose those will be addressed in the next sections!
Lyndsey Chapman

Good Evening, What if your testing is scheduled for after the deadline of Aug 15?
Michael Wolcott (he/him)
29:45
We will definitely answer those questions in the next two sections, thank you!
Carter Todd
29:47
Confirming that the applications starting on May 1, 2023 will be considered for the 2024 class.
Kimberly Werth
30:06
that is correct Carter.
Kierstan Green
32:32
Will the altus suite be a requirement to participate in the engagement options?
Bethany DeLuca
32:48
Are the Masters degrees one or two year programs?
Alexis Wright
32:57
Is the BMS program online?
Mourad Lamey
33:10
Hello Doctors, and hopefully prospective teachers and colleagues, are these mock interviews open or closed interviews?
Bethany DeLuca
35:47
Is practice employment a shadow/volunteer type thing or actual employment opportunities?
Paige Conners
35:59
For students that started the application does the CASPER exam have to be done by august 15th?
Vonjj Johnson
36:09
You mentioned that there was 2 part to the application. After we submit the application online, what is the second part?
Michael Wolcott (he/him)
36:13
Please include your questions about the additional OPTIONS
Sam Kashani
36:24
Hello, is the Casper Optional?
Mourad Lamey
36:26
yes sure, thanks Dr. Wolcott for your reply. I meant if those interviews will be open ( can ask about the application and grades) or closed ( broad and general questions without questioning the application)
Ali Jabbari
36:37
I have completed 2 parts of the phase 2 and still working on the Casper exam to take it. Do I have to take it before Aug 15’th also? Or Can I take it after that due date?
Lucy Nguyen
36:50
After I submitted the application online, when is the second part?
Michael Wolcott (he/him)
37:10
https://www.highpoint.edu/graduate/
Jose Nagen
37:24
will the mock interviews be one-to-one with you guys or will it be in a group setting?
Lars Farabee

GradAdmit@highpoint.edu
Blake Wilson
37:39
Do you have to complete the Altus things in order to be considered for the mock interviews?
Vernisha C.
37:59
When will the second section be sent?
Austin Gauldin
39:19
For the employment opportunities, where would the applications be posted?
Mourad Lamey
40:14
Thanks so much for such satisfying answer
Michael Wolcott (he/him)
44:15
Instructions for completing your application: https://www.highpoint.edu/dental-medicine/files/2021/04/HPU-WSDM-Application-Assistance-V4-1Jun2022.pdf
Michael Wolcott (he/him)
44:51
Questions to: DMDAdmissions@highpoint.edu
Paige Conners
44:56
So if I submit my application by August 15th without the Casper exam, I am still able to be considered for Fall 2024?
Mourad Lamey
45:36
are the uploaded supporting documents will be rolled over with the application?
Ali Jabbari
46:11
So basically if I’m ONLY missing the Casper by Aug 15’th and everything else is completed, then I’m still eligible for the mock interview. Is that correct?
Brianna Hussey
46:35
How deep of a description should we put for our job, volunteer, and shadowing experience on part one of the application?
Anishya Hagans
46:55
Is the mock interview open to all that have a completed application?
Sarah Schroeder
47:11
Regarding Part 2, it asks for 150 characters. Did they really mean characters or 150 words? One sentence can be 131 characters…it seems difficult to answer the questions if the application wants characters.
Bethany DeLuca
47:23
the email about part 2 was in my spam folder just fyi to others
Nawar Yacoub
47:30
I received the part two email on July 15
sai cherukuri
48:34
Do you offer admissions for international students ?
Ali Jabbari
49:56
Thanks for clarifying
Ali Jabbari
50:26
When do you start sending interviews this year?
Abby
50:31
Will the recording be made available to us to view?
Michael Wolcott (he/him)
50:50
Abby, yes the recording will be available
Kim Ponder
51:21
How many students will you accept for 2024?
Abby
51:22
Wonderful! Thank you! I'm assuming it will be emailed?
Michael Wolcott (he/him)
51:54
Our cohort size will be 60 students
Bethany DeLuca
52:05
Where will the recording be available for viewing? I'm on vacation and the wifi keeps causing a lag and I'm missing some parts.
Kim Ponder
52:13
thanks!
Tkeyah Johnson
52:31
was it intentional for everyone to be invited to complete part 2 of the app? if so, how do we know if our part 1 was competitive enough?
Breanna Daley
52:45
Will we need new letters of recommendation for the next application cycle ?
Ali Jabbari
53:23
If the student gets admitted to the program, when will he/she be notified to start the first class on 2024?
Michael Wolcott (he/him)
53:50
The selection for the 2024 program will begin in fall of 2023
Ali Jabbari
54:49
So we have to wait at least a year from now until we know that we are admitted or not
Michael Wolcott (he/him)
55:05
The Snapshot and Duet should be available on your dashboard in the Altus assessment. If they are not automatically there, please contact Altus for that
Michael Wolcott (he/him)
55:11
Correct Ali
Ali Jabbari
55:16
Thank you
Michael Wolcott (he/him)
56:00
We will have a link to the recording on the website
Michael Wolcott (he/him)
56:10
And sent via email
Paige Conners
56:13
What happens if you take the CASPER exam but do not have the official scores by august 15th?
Tiffany Harrison
56:40
What if you work in dentistry can two separate doctors be used as recommendations (1) Manager/ Boss and (2) Dentist? — hygienist here
Michael Wolcott (he/him)
58:14
It is okay if the Altus scores are not in by Aug 15 since it is optional. As long as you've registered to take it before the end of the cycle (Jan 31), that will be okay if you want them included in your next application cycle
Sarah Schroeder
58:28
Regarding Part 2, it asks for 150 characters. Did they really mean characters or 150 words? One sentence can be 131 characters…it seems difficult to answer the questions if the application wants characters.
Michael Wolcott (he/him)
59:08
There is ONE question that has a character limit (the one about a tweet), the others are WORD limits
Vivi Tran
59:18
Is it possible to replace one of our insights?
Sarah Schroeder
59:34
Ok. Thank you.
Jose Nagen
59:45
Whats the current status of accreditation? Will the school be CODA accredited by the next application cycle?
Trisha Choe
01:02:01
Will there be priority placed on applicants that submit their DAT scores rather than not submitting them?
Tkeyah Johnson
01:03:11
when do you all anticipate to give feedback on applications?
Paige Conners
01:03:41
Are they notified if you remove them?
Abby
01:03:46
I need to change the email address associated with my application. How do I do that?
Lars Farabee
01:03:59
Again, email us at gradadmit@highpoint.edu for help with this
Michael Wolcott (he/him)
01:05:31
If you did not get your question answered from the chat, please re-submit it (apologies if I missed it!)
samuel stlaurent
01:06:07
When it come to engagement opportunities with the school, will HPU staff be at any of the future Mission of Mercy events held in NC ? Also you spoke about how you will have a clinic open soon or already have one clinic, will you be potentially doing virtual shadowing session such as the ones that other dental schools offer such as UNC?
Chimere Collins
01:06:59
I am volunteering there too!!!
Brianna Hussey
01:07:35
How deep of a description should we put for our job, volunteer, and shadowing experience in part one?
Michael Howze
01:07:41
I am registered for the MOMS clinic as well!
Dong Soo Kang
01:08:02
Can International students get into HPU?
Lucy Nguyen
01:08:09
Does CASPer have to be submitted asap?
Tiffany Harrison
01:08:22
What recommendations would you have for a hygienist with 10 year experience as a non traditional student to strengthen their application.
Anishya Hagans
01:09:15
Is the mock interview open to all that have a completed application?

Moneet Singh
01:10:35
Will HPU accept out-of-state students or accept more in-state students?
Mourad Lamey
01:10:50
Since this is a starting school, do you prioritize resident applicants? I mean, I am from California. So, do California have a chance?
Jazmin Cromartie
01:11:19
DMDadmissions@highpoint.edu
Tkeyah Johnson
01:12:18
is there a preference for shadowing that occurs in person versus virtually?
Moneet Singh
01:12:19
Amazing! Thank you, Dr. Cromartie!
Mourad Lamey
01:12:41
That's so nice, much appreciated!
