  1. ohh that's a tricky one, I think they may include 2nd year and drop the lowest between 1st, 3rd, 4th for GPA for interview calculation, then use your 5th year and drop your 2nd year after interview for final decision. make sure you call to check
  2. Doesn't sound too bad! just keep up the grind. If you're in province UofA is a great school, and you'll have an advantage going to UofA for networking if you choose to work in Alberta. Apply broadly, and go to the first school you get into.
  3. I'm a little confused at what your asking, but if your second year is your worst, then it will not be used for calculations as long as its not your only 30* year. they must take into account your GPA for most recent year, i.e upcoming fall/winter for you since you plan to apply for upcoming cycle.
  4. I think it's best to give the faculty of admissions a call, don't worry they won't trace your call or anything weird like that hahaha. I'm not sure if anything has changed so please double check incase I'm off, but so long as you have a passing grade in the class (not sure if school of dentistry has a different definition of pass for applicants), the pre-req will be considered completed and since its a spring course it should not count to overall GPA calculation. BUT, you should also be looking at what other Canadian schools do for gpa calculations incase it's that mandatory to consider all pre-reqs or they have issues with a W. It's also wise to check if there is a max number of spring summer course you can take before they start counting them, some schools will count it if you have 3-4 spring/summer classes combined. I think I know someone who got a C+ in a spring class but did not effect his GPA, I'll double check with him though and let your know. For the admissions process, they calculate your GPA and that's that. there is no part of the process for now where they judge your trend in grades unless red flags that they find concerning. I don't believe that they care if you have a W on your transcript, most schools don't unless its many. But at the same time if you can finish the class to the standards you need, and not have it be a future burden, try to tough it out. Also, since you're a 3.93 student what the heck going on in PHYS? Come on you can do it!... btw, is this PHYS 124 or 126?
  5. Your GPA up until completion of your fall semester next year will be used for interview decision, once you've completed the interview, your final GPA calculation will include the following winter semester (the semester you get your interview in).
  6. Dental MMI is very similar to medical MMI without the the heavy focus on medical situations or medical ethical principals. I did both before getting into the clearly superior program.
  7. So for MMI, I practiced with friends and we did lots of practice. Made our own questions if we ran out of ones we found online. I also registered for coaching which I found most helpful. 30 MDT, 20 RCT, 23 PAT
  8. Compare your stats with the year before. I think you have an excellent shot at interview and acceptance will be determined by your MMI score, so be sure to do lost of prep for it. Good luck.
  9. Only MDT, RCT, and PAT. so you could tehcinhally get a 1 in the sciences and be okay for UofA. I winged sciences and guessed after I got bored lol. Focused those 3 only
  10. I think it’s like 13-15 ppl long, still quite a few more to come out in regular admissions, not to mention any waitlist movement. We don’t know exact number forsure though check out the 2021 thread for some ppl who left their stats. But overall likely have one of the three criteria no so high and then get regular admissions
  11. 5th floor ECHA, take the elevator on south side and the door to the department is as soon as you exit the elevator.
  12. Congrats Guys!!! Join the FB page! https://m.facebook.com/groups/639508663062233?ref=bookmarks
  13. Sorry for making you guy panic, but thought I should prepare a thread. Early acceptances for the UofA DDS 2022 class should be coming out pretty soon. The last couple of years, early admission emails were released on May 18th, but we don't know when for this year. Just a reminder for anyone who doesn't hear back for early acceptances in May (which is only a short list), the general acceptances/WL/rejections should be released in late June. I will post a link to our Facebook page after acceptances roll out. Congratulations to all those who are accepted, we can't wait to meet you all!! P.S. Feel free to comment DAT, GPA, MMI Score, and Geography with results. This helps future applicants get an idea of where they stand
  14. Only 3 more days until your interview! If you guys have any questions for the big day, feel free to ask and I’ll do my best to answer. Good luck and I’ll see y’all Saturday P.S. I’ll be the volunteer wearing the pink top hat for easy identification.
  15. LOOOOL love the jab. I wrote the MCAT more times I’d like to admit, and never did well. Very happy it never went well because I’m now in Dent, the much cooler of the two.
