    marauder4life got a reaction from DDS In Training in Uwo Vs U Of T!   
    I would like to address a concern that multiple people have mentioned here that they feel hesitant about going to UofT dental because of the competitive environment they remember from undergrad. I can understand why this is a cause of concern for many, but I don't think it will be an issue once you are in dental school. I know of many close friends who went to UofT dental instead of UWO because they had paid their UofT deposit and wanted to be close to home (even though they initially wanted UWO because of smaller class size and friendly atmosphere), but they all love it at UofT! So UofT really isn't as bad as people think it is From the people I have talked to everyone seems to love their school. Maybe it would be a good idea to talk to friends who may are at these schools to get a better understanding of the student experience.

    Haven't done panel, only MMI and MPI.
     
    For the MPI, it's a little more on-the-spot than MMI, since you don't get a chance to think about your answers before walking into the room. However, I'd say that each room kind of has a "theme" to it like an MMI.
     
    One thing is that for one of my stations, I didn't realise that the interviewer had more questions for me, so it was a little awkward because they had to cut me off during my first answer to continue down their list.

    Well you have to remember that the doctors and people who are marking a) get the applications late sometimes have other duties to do other than just reading applications c) aren't paid to do this. Other schools cut a lot of applicants out due to higher MCAT, and some schools don't even look at your ECs or reference letters. It's no wonder Toronto might need longer than other schools if you think about it.

    I spoke to some OOP applicants at my last interview who said they (and their friends) were still waiting to hear back from UofT but if they got an invitation they'd probably decline bc they were already accepted to other schools... So hey, it's possible UofT just wants to account for that.
     
    I'm being more optimistic and just hoping everyone still waiting IS everyone on these forums aha.
