  1. Honestly, because you just started undergrad, I think it's worth applying and maybe moving down if you're accepted. Although the costs are high, you would be starting and thus graduating earlier, as you mentioned. Also, it's true that dental schools here are cheaper, but unless you're in Quebec, they're not THAT cheap. U of T and Western have tuition fees of around 45k/year. You would also have to factor in the costs of your undergraduate degree (which can vary depending on whether you live at home or somewhere else). Also, graduating from an undergrad doesn't guarantee you a position (some people get in following a gap year or postgraduate studies). Just make sure you are aware of the costs going in and know that you would need a cosigner for loans if you end up wanting to go (even though the loans given by the banks wouldn't completeley cover the costs). If you're aware of all this info and still want to apply, you should go for it. Good luck!
  2. Couldn't agree with you more!
  3. Very true! One of the companies I had seen specifically mentionned something about the advice given on premed101 regarding interview prep illegitimate or unrealiable (paraphrasing fyi) lol It was honestly jokes given the fact this forum helps a lot of people, myself included.
  4. Thanks for the advice! A lot of these companies honestly look very shady, with a lot of their reviews looking like they've been written by the company themselves so it's hard to know who to trust. Seriously leaning to just prepping myself lol
  5. Hi Everyone! I was wondering if anyone could shine some light onto some good MMI interview prep companies that prepare well for interviews? Looking to get some professional help but with an abundance of companies, I don't know which would be best. Personal experience with different companies (the good and bad) would be extremely valuable. Thanks in advance!

  7. Honestly, it's an application-based course. You have to understand the material super well and be able to apply it so memorization is not enough. Just study in advance and if there's anything you don't understand even the slightest, go see him, his office door is almost always open. Go through old midterms too if he provides them, because if my memory serves right, he doesn't recycle questions for micro but they'll help you get a grasp of the types of questions he asks. Good luck!
  8. I took microbio with basso because I needed it in my program. Best bet like above is to ask each individual school to see if it satisfies the prerequisite. I'm not sure how the HSS course is but Basso's course is quite challenging so I suggest that if you are planning to take the course with basso, prepare to work hard because it is on the more difficult side.
  9. Hey! So just to make sure you didn't take any of the PHS courses or take ANP1107 right?
  10. I don't believe UBC has any physiology pre-reqs!
  11. Hey guys, I have a question regarding the physiology requirement at UofT. I attended the University of Ottawa and completed by BSc. I'm looking to apply to dentistry next year. I've looked at the physiology requirement at UofT and got in touch with admissions a couple times in terms of what courses fulfill the requirement from the University of Ottawa. They were unable to give me a straight answer and said they don't have an equivalency table like their pharmacy school does (in terms of what courses qualify). If anyone has attended the University of Ottawa and has gotten an interview or been accepted to UofT dentistry, could you help me out in terms of what courses you took to satisfy the requirement. I've taken ANP1105 and ANP1106 (Anatomy and Physiology I and II) , as well as Animal Physiology. Thanks in advance!
  12. I have never posted on this forum before and have just been a lurker, but I feel the need to make a post as I think this is getting somewhat out of hand. If unkn0wnfutur3 is making comments that you don't like or don't appreciate, all you need to do is just not answer. By answering or acknowledging his comments, you are just adding more fuel to the flame. He or she obviously thrives off the drama and by answering him/her and other individuals like him/her, you're only going to worsen the situation. This thread has become irrelevant to its original subject matter due to the immature banter between unknown and those who are arguing with him/her. It's important to note you are all thriving to become dentists, and that such a profession comes with a need to act maturely. In the future, you will most definitely encounter unpleasant or rude individuals, but will have to learn to deal with them accordingly. In this case, not answering at all, or perhaps bringing the comments to the attention of one of the moderators, would have been a more mature response. If a dog across the street from where you are walking starts barking at you, would you walk across, sit down beside the dog, and waste time talking back to it? Probably not. You would most likely just walk away. These are just my 2 cents. I don't think that writing responses of intimidation or insults back will do anything but worsen the situation, and demonstrate a lack of maturity on your part in dealing with conflicts. Simply leave the page, change the subject, or contact a moderator so they can deal with the situation as they find fit. It's definitely important to contribute to a forum that provides such pertinent information for present and future applicants. However, when the posts become counterproductive or unimportant to the main subject matter at hand, then it's just unnecessary. I want to thank you all for taking the time to read through this lengthy post (for those of you that have). I wish you all the best of luck in your future endeavours.
