  1. Hi Everyone, Was hoping to create a interview prep group to meet maybe couple times a week at somewhere in Mississauga?
  2. Hello all, Schulich released their acceptances. Thought I'd get the list started. Good luck to all!
  3. Hi all, Congrats to everyone who got their Western interview offers; just wanted to get a group together for people practicing interviews and such. At western right now is the 2nd wave of midterms but after they finish, I was thinking we can get together 1-2 times weekly and practice. Let me know if anyone of you are interesting in practicing in London at UWO campus. Thanks,
  4. I agree with Ravenjays, the first part was the most personal and the parts 2 and 3 were more "questions".

    Citations in ABS (UWO)

    Quick question, do you know when/if the verifiers get contacted? Some of my verifiers often go out of the country and use a different number.

    Nov DAT Marks are Out!

    RC 20 Bio 19 Chem 26 Science: 20 AA: 21 PAT: 19 Not surprised at bio, didn't have much time to study that; PAT I am surprised. Western is my main goal and I think with these I should get an interview...What you think?
  7. Just like Dec 13 last year... Anyone else somewhat surprised at their PAT mark?

    November 2017 DAT Thoughts

    Bio and Chem were no surprise. Apart from the Keyhole rocks on the 1st page, PAT was more or less what I had expected. Maybe an unpopular opinion but I found RC good, although I did guess on 2 at the end, feel like the material was easier to digest/understand than normal.

    UWO Admission Stats 2021

    I noticed the gender ratios too; as a male prospective dentist, that's good to see. Also, I think this year's grad student count is a bit high, in past years its been more around 10-12.

    UWO Admission Stats 2021

    They said for the upcoming application cycle they may use ALL sections of the DAT or a combination of the sections excluding MDT.
  11. Hello all, I will be writing the DAT for the 3rd time this November. Do schools look down upon multiple rewrites. Some school websites mention that it does not matter to them but has anyone, from their own experience, found it impacts their acceptance? Thank you.
  12. Thank you all for the kind words; do you think Wet lab experience would be looked on more favorably than Psychology research considering its more applicable to Dentistry as a field?
  13. Hello Everyone, I will be applying to dental schools for the 2017-18 (UofT and UWO). I believe my marks/DAT are good enough to meet their standards; I was just wondering how my ECs match up? Here's a summary of my ECs -150-200 hours of Dental Shadowing - 2 Years of Work-study in Psychology Lab and 1 Year Workstudy in Biochemistry Lab (no publications/abstracts) - 3 Summers working for Community Health Organization - Assistant basketball Coach for 2 summers - VP of a student Club (1.5 Years) and 2 Years in Mentorship Program. I think overall I have a good amount of things but my concern is with the fact that I lack some research experience; I've never been one for "wet lab" research (find it isolating/boring overall) and that's why I switched to a Psychology lab which is more engaging to me. Thoughts? ECs meet standards?

    U Of T Update On Applications

    Completely random question but over the holiday break the UofT office has been closed; does UofT accept Physics courses as "Life Sciences Courses"?

    Chances For Interview At Uoft?

    I did see that last year entrance average was 3.90. With 200 people getting interviews last year and their average being 3.85, I would think there was some give/take in GPA and maybe the lowest GPA with an interview offer was ~3.75? Isn't the interview the most important factor at UWO and UofT, so once you get an interview and say if you kill it, chances to get accepted would be good?
