  1. I am currently working as a professional dietitian and was accepted to McGill Dentistry for the fall. I wasn't specifically asked about my prior education or work experience in any MMI station except for the "interview station", in which the interviewer had a copy of my CV and we discussed different parts of it. It's hard to remember now, but I would assume I mentioned it in some of the stations without being asked. I feel that I have a lot of experience that comes from my professional degree/work experience in the health care system so I used it as an asset. I don't know about other schools, but McGill wont transfer any credits from a previous degree.
  2. Thanks!! Absolutely worth the wait Wanted to post my stats to give others who don't have perfect stats some hope: GPA: 3.51 (studied dietetics at McGill) DAT: didn't write it Interview: Thought it went really well EC: Only decided I wanted to be a dentist 2 years ago. Before that I had basically no ECs (some sports and lots of traveling). Once I decided on dentistry, I started shadowing a dentist once a week. Also volunteered at the McGill Summer Clinic assisting the upper year students. I've been working as a professional dietitian for about 2 years while I was working on my dent application. My undergrad had 40 weeks of stage so I have lots of clinical experience and am very comfortable in hospital environments. I applied to McGill only and thought I had no chance at all but I guess I was wrong! For those of you still waiting, don't give up and don't let perfect stats from everyone on this forum get you down. Schools are looking for more than just 4.0 GPAs, they want well-rounded people who will be a comfort to their patients. Keep trying and it'll work out for you!
  3. Just wondering if anyone was accepted to McGill dent but is on the waiting list for med?
  4. No Minerva hasn't changed. You can see the movement of the lists here: http://www.mcgill.ca/dentistry/prospective/undergrad/submit-application/waiting-list .
  5. I'm currently 2nd on the IP list (was 7th originally). I think I have a relatively good chance but it's hard to get excited without an offer...
  6. I was just wondering if the people who are on the waiting list have done all of their vaccinations yet and uploaded the file? I have all of my vaccinations except the TB test, but I am tempted to wait and see if I get an offer before getting that done...
