  1. Worry about scoring high, not meeting the cutoffs... that's just my way of looking at things. They used to be in the realm of 19 for the RC section, idk never looked at cutoffs only focused on goals.
  2. You'll likely get an invite - depends on your ECs and if you make the DAT cutoffs.
  3. By the end of the 4 years, I can safely say that some grow to love it even more, some remain enthusiastic, some are neutral and a select few are a bit bitter. It's a wide spectrum of responses you could get to this and like someone above mentioned: it can be selection bias as well. I don't think I'll get bored of practicing dentistry anytime soon - and I tend to burn out my hobbies pretty quickly. If you're passionate about it... you'll feel it every single time you finish up clinic. PS: first year of dental school sucked. Then it got better by second. Third and fourth years were great. Why? Because you actually do dentistry.
  4. Yes.. *very* interesting Hope the lot of you had a somewhat relaxed and informative day!
  5. ^ to make sure nobody is interviewing on your behalf. It was interesting sitting across from some of the prospective students...
  6. I've got the ExamVision 4.6x; amazing optics compared to the 'school-provided' Univet set. A bit on the heavier side, but decent depth of field, great working distance/mag ratio - and I can comfortably see an entire sextant. Paired them with the Lumadent light with a solid metal mount. -- and yes, I use them for scaling as well!
  7. Hehehe... no comment xD Yes.... sure... that^ XD But idk, in regards to the boards prep: I think we know the major topics quite well - or at least supposed to! *Ahem, KFB... attendance is key. Joking aside, going through released boards questions, most of us should have no problem getting 75-80% of them right without studying specifically for the NDEB
  8. I'll hopefully be sitting on the other side of the table from you guys ^.^ This should be exciting!
  9. Will likely need a lot of collateral for a loan; a good friend of mine had to get her parents to put their house as collateral on a 300k USD loan for her medical school. No other way really, unless you have liquid cash. Canadian banks aren't as friendly to student going to the US.
  10. Some write it after first year, some after second... in regards to the part I. Part II typically after year 3, or at the same time as Canadian boards. But that's gonna go out the window with the switch from two parts to a single exam. Focus on your first year in dental school; don't worry about the boards yet lol...
  11. Yeah^^ but... https://www.facebook.com/Dr.wim.oudshoorn/media_set?set=a.990749924450955&type=3 EDIT: I'm not sure if the individual's post is public on Facebook. Anyways:, summary of the research: "CD and PA tests are neither selective nor sensitive enough to identify candidates who have the potential to succeed or fail" But for the record, I do think that if you actually wanted to do well... you should be able to get better than a 5 on the MDT if you put in the same effort you did in your undergrad classes.
