  1. That's odd that they'd even put OOP applicants on a waitlist if those students can't get off in the first place haha
  2. Do you know if IP and OOP waitlists are separate, or if they're both combined?
  3. At the orientation I believe the lady said mid-April. She said that this year they pushed the date back from the original "end of March" date that was mentioned in the invite.
  4. I guess it depends on the person. At the end of the day I don't think it's that big of a deal. The majority of guys I've seen at my interviews had the same colored jackets and pants. Not that many people tried to be overly stylish or make a fashion statement since that wasn't really the purpose of the interviews lol
  5. Both my suit jacket and pants were black, but they were of different shades. You couldn't really tell unless you look very closely. If you were mixing a light grey jacket with a pair of black pants then I think that would definitely be a problem, but if you were worrying about slight differences in color then I don't think it's that big of an issue.
  6. I think it depends on the school, but for example, UofT asks for Tuberculin, Rubella, Tetanus, Polio and Hep B. I know for Hep B multiple visits are required, and luckily I got that one done earlier. Hopefully the other ones don't take too much time. I think cost also depends on what type of vaccine you get. I remember having to pay for Hep B (in Alberta)
  7. I just figured since some schools have specific vaccinations they want you to have, if you don't get accepted there but get the vaccine(s) (which may or may not be really expensive) then it seems hard on the wallet. On the other hand, yeah, being up to date on vaccines doesn't seem like a bad idea. But if the risk of catching a certain illness is really low and is only higher when exposed to all the tools/equipment used in dentistry, then maybe that's a reason to wait. Just my thoughts!
  8. Okay If I get accepted I'll start as soon as possible. Thanks for the advice!
  9. Hey guys, I've been getting varied responses about this after looking through past threads, so I'm hoping someone with more recent experience might be able to provide insight. A lot of dental schools require students to have immunizations against certain viruses/diseases. For those immunizations that require multiple, spaced out visits to the doctor/pharmacist, do all these visits need to be completed before the start of class? Or can a student still be admitted even if they are part-way through the immunization? Hopefully the answer to this gives everyone an idea of how early they need to start getting their shots if they get acceptances. Thanks a lot
  10. I've heard in BC (I'm assuming you're looking at Vancouver) that the earning potential is less since there are already many dental offices there and the demand isn't as high. In Alberta you'll definitely earn more, not to mention the cost of living is significantly lower than in BC
  11. So out of 40 people, 9 get accepted and 9 get put on the waitlist? The rest get rejections? I thought everyone who doesn't get accepted gets put on the waitlist (i.e. 31 people on the waitlist)
  12. But if people actually did end up withdrawing their acceptance, it only makes sense that they'd have a waitlist to pick from in order to fill up the seats, no?
