    The slow decay of dentistry

    Why does this page from the government contradict everything said here, stating that there will be shortages in the future? https://www.jobbank.gc.ca/marketreport/outlook-occupation/4092/ca Here's a quote : "Although this occupational group has had balanced market in recent years, projected job openings are expected to be substantially higher to job seekers, creating a shortage of workers over the 2015-2024 period" Based on this report you would think the golden age of dentistry is coming back! I'm too cynical to trust the feds, but surely they can't be this out of touch (assuming the Doom and gloom talks bear some truth)?
  2. Also curious how many Mac (and Canadian Meds in general) write Step 1
  3. ok, thanks a lot g. Referees giving mans aneurysms
  4. hello, Do any previous applicant know if we can check the status of the reference letters (whether there were received) after we submit the app on OMSAS? My app is done, but 2 of my referees still haven't submitted the ref letters. I wanted to know when they do, but I don't want to submit if I can't check the status anymore. Thanks
  5. Hello all, For the degree finish date and the conferred date in OMSAS, the drop-down menu only goes up to 2018. I am in a co-op degree, which makes it longer. So I finish in 2019, despite starting in fall 2014. What should I put as the option?
  6. Though I'd start posting as results are coming out Result: GPA IP/OOP DAT (AA + PAT) Interview Year of study My results: Waitlisted 3.90 IP DAT (21 + 20) Didn't ask score 4th year UG
  7. I, for one, got rekt by the PAT section . Coulda sworn time moved faster during the PAT lol. **Looks up at clock** '30 min left'. **Looks up 2 seconds later**, '20 minutes left'

    Yes, here at UW for example, our final grade is in percent. If i finished a course with a 100, it will show up as a 100. If I finish with a 90, its a 90. And no its not -4%, because the range is 85-89, and the midpoint of that is 87.5. Actually as I type this, I remember a friend telling me that York is actually like you said. That is they only have an 80-89 range, not 80-84 85-89, in which case you would be right for York. But ya for schools that give percents (which doesn't seem too common these days), it looks like we get the short end of the stick

    Exactly my point Although I hope they at least give that some sort of informal consideration. It seems very peculiar that they would allow such a glaring discrepancy without at least some fraction of consideration.

    Is that hyperbole, or is the majority of the class actually York/Mac. Just curious
