  1. isnt UBC's tuition comparable to that of the US?
  2. To boost your chances, you might want to retake the DAT
  3. This only matters if the number of people on the waitlist is the same this year...
  4. Cannot help but feel very depressed, the minute I stepped out of the MMI I felt bad already ): Didn't get an official rejection yet, but highly doubting there will be any turnaround for me. Best of luck to the rest of you though!
  5. Nope, I'm in my 5th year of undergrad, I did one year of co-op in a lab before though
  6. Got an interview invite with around 86% average from UBC (don't know what it would convert to in terms of GPA) as an OOP, extremely grateful =D my extracurriculars are merely mediocre as well. What's UWO dent's interview format like?
  7. I also have a question re this exam, does the mark matter or is it simply enough to pass the exam (~75%)?
  8. Mind me asking those of you who thought the bio section was easy, what did u use to study?
  9. Thought Bio was hard for me :/ other than that it went ok
  10. Hello all For those who applied to UBC this year with the earlier deadline in August and got an interview invite, do you mind sharing your stats? (GPA and DAT)
  11. Sorry, I think what UBC means is that 1 should be from a 300+ level course prof and the other should be from a dental health professional...it's not one or the other, it's both
  12. Hello, I also have a question regarding this. Is there any perks to early submission other than early admission?
  13. UBC drops your worst year if you've done = or > 4 years
  14. Anyone has their interview in the afternoon? O: this is very weird for me Also please PM is anyone wants to practice together
  15. Hi, I'm an UBC microbiology student who's going into 3rd year and planning to take the DAT this upcoming February...I made a list of the prep materials that I'm planning to go over (hopefully) based off some research on forums -Biology: Cliff’s AP biology 3rd edition --> Ferralis notes --> Practice on Bootcamp -Chemistry: Chad’s videos --> DAT destroyer -PAT: DAT boot camp --> IQ publication -RC: DAT boot camp + IQ publication (Probably the hardest section for me cuz I'm a slow reader) Not planning to take the soap carving section For Chad's video are the ones on coursesaver's general chemistry portion sufficient? Any thoughts/advise on this would be great
  16. Those r some really really good suggestions. The very basics of interviews are something I definitely need to look into as well. Thank you so much!
  17. So they dont look at summer course gpas?
  18. Thank u! So I guess I must really work on my interview skills ): Does any one have any good book recommendations to prep for MMI?
  19. I didn't receive the email.. does anyone know if they even consider your grades anymore after the interview? :/
  20. I actually experienced the MMI at UBC already and there isn't much room in it where you get to talk about your extracurriculars D: its mostly answering questions Thank you :3 So the UBC dent interview would consist of the PBL + CASper + MMI? oh man...
  21. Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question, but what form is UBC's interview in? I read on the website that students are required to take the CASPer exam, is this the actual interview or do we have another MMI after it? Also, is extracurricular activities not weighted at all for ubc dentistry? D: thank you in advance
