  1. Hey! Can we talk through email? I have questions about the program & how it might run this year. Thanks!
  2. Hey! Would you mind if we corresponded through email? I have a load of questions! Thanks
  3. That’s terrible. Honestly. That’s really really terrible. I’m in medsci so this definitely affects me because we don’t have many courses at the third and fourth-year levels. You mentioned you were in third year, why not take more upper-level courses next year? You have two semesters to kill it. Also, it’s odd that they haven’t replied to either mine or my friends’ emails...
  4. No clue, but it’s probably like Med. Theres usually around 25 North Americans each year.
  5. I get that. But, I’ve never heard of Canadian dental schools requiring a full course load. I’m an undergrad at Dalhousie and I know for certain that it’s not needed here. Either way, those pre-requisites are super helpful when it comes to dental school. If I were you, I would get on those while applying for Ireland or Canada/US.
  6. This applies to everyone. I’m graduating this year too. If they were to keep this policy, I’d be screwed. Third and fourth years were my best. I’ve sent them an email expressing my concern with this policy. You should do the same.
  7. The best (and only) thing we can do right now is email them! My friends and I sent emails explaining our situation and our concern with this policy. It’s unfair. It doesn’t reward students who were resilient. It doesn’t reward students for their hard work. It doesn’t make sense.
  8. Congrats on your acceptance!!! Can you elaborate a little on what you mean by nontrad? I’m graduating this year but taking 2 gap years, would I be non traditional as well?
  9. It will for some of us. These last two years are my only full-time years; I had to work during 1st and 2nd year. So what does this all mean? Well, I'm disqualified from applying to my top school (and my best shot). Should I 'calm down' too?
  10. Exactly, I relate so well to both of your comments. I have worked SO HARD this semester to maintain a 4.0, while working 10 hours a week. It's disheartening to hear that schools won't be considering this semester. How is this fair? It's not right that someone who spent every day studying gets the same result as someone who was drinking at the local pub. Fuck this.
  11. Hey, I'm in the same boat. I'm a fourth year student, graduating this year and hoping to apply next cycle. Given that they won't be considering the 5 courses from this semester, I was wondering if they would dip into second year courses or even first year. This would disqualify me because I wasn't a full-time student during the first two years (had to work). Honestly, if they tell me I can't apply, I won't even know what to do. I've worked tirelessly these last two years to maintain a 4.0 OMSAS GPA so I would basically be screwed cause Dal is my best shot. EDIT: I also sent them an email but have yet to hear back
  12. I just wanna say, I'm part of a group of students who were accepted to UCC; there's about 25 or 26 of us. That's to say, not everyone is posting their stats here. Hang in there, you'll make it!!
  13. You seem like the perfect candidate. Why didn't you apply to Canadian schools?
