    UBC Application

    What's the purpose of UBC Dent asking: Other dental/medical schools you're applying too? What other courses will you complete (in addition to prerequisites and already completed) before entering dental school? Just curious, Thanks!

    UBC Entrace Stats

    According to UBC's posted stats the average DAT score for an entering student is ~22. Is this BIO + CHEM + RC? Or does this include PAT? What is this 22 composed of? Thanks!

    Speed Up Hole Punching

    Awesome! Thanks for the insight. What is the "symmetry from first fold" method? I've always worked backwards from the last fold

    Speed Up Hole Punching

    So far I've been drawing grids and using the line of symmetry method, but under time constraint drawing 15 mini grids could take up valuable time. Does anyone have any strategy to speed this up? Or use a grid for more than one question and avoid being confused? Any help is appreciated!

    DAT bootcamp notes

    https://datbootcamp.com/feralis-biology-notes/ Are these notes posted on DAT Bootcamp Feralis revised? They seem totally different format from Feralis original notes. Just wondering, thanks!

    Does UBC Dentistry have classes in the Life Science Building? Or joint classes with Med students?

    Feeling discouraged

    I'm currently an undergrad studying to get into dentistry school and am consumed with my studies. I often pull 10 hour days for weeks at a time to get through all my material. I'm getting the results I want, not stellar, but my marks are competitive and I enjoy what I'm studying, but a part of me feels like I'm just going to fail out of dental school if I can get in because of how difficult I'm finding the material in undergrad. Did anyone else feel like they're really pushing their limits to get into dental school? Feeling drained and consumed by their studies? I don't really know what I'm looking for by posting here. Does anyone else feel like it's super difficult to get into dental school?

    Does prestigious undergrad matter?

    What do you consider "prestigious"?

    This is a totally random question but do dentists take the Hippocratic oath?

    UBC Average DAT

    On UBC's posted entrance statistics, it says the average DAT score for interviewed IP applicant is 22.1 (last year). Sorry if this is dumb but is this AA? or AA + PAT? Also, i couldn't find information as to what the scaled score relates to in terms of percentile? I get that varies from test to test but around what percentile is a 22? Thanks!
