  1. If you look through the forums from posts over the years, I've seen some people get in with 16s. Even saw one guy get with a 14. They all had high 3.9 GPAs though. So I do think there's a chance if you have a high GPA and high scores in the other sections.
  2. Anyone know the PAT cut offs for these schools? (especially western, if there is one). Are the cut offs strict, or can a low score in one section be offset by high scores in other sections + high GPA? Also, any success stories of people getting in with low PAT scores? (16/17)
  3. do we just list the courses? or do we need to provide more info
  4. Hi. I just realized that I only have 0.5 courses for biochem, even though 1.0 course is required. Does anyone know if any other courses will satisfy the biochem requirement? I have taken a bunch of bio courses like cell bio.
  5. I have a 517 overall, but a 125 in the CARS section. Has anyone heard of someone getting an interview with a 125 in CARS?
  6. Hello, I was just wondering if any previous applicants can shed some light on how much physio experience is required? I tailored most of my activities towards med school but I do have some physio experience (like 80 hours), but obviously thats not a lot compared to other candidates here. Since I know med school is a long shot I'm keeping my possibilities open and applying to physio as well. Do other volunteer activities other than physiotherapy related activities (such as volunteering in an old age home) hold any significance at all? Which schools are more lenient and require less physio experience?
  7. Just wondering if there has been anyone here accepted into UoT or UWO with low dental scores (like AA) but a high GPA?
  8. What's the consensus on how important DAT scores are compared to GPA for UoT and Western? Are there actual cut offs for the DAT scores? If I have a high GPA (high 3.9s) but my DAT scores weren't super high (like 18-19 AA), would I still have a chance?
  9. Hi all, I took prepared the whole summer for the MCAT and took it 2 weeks ago. Now I am shifting my focus to starting to prepare for the DAT. I know there is a lot of overlap with the content, so I definitely should have a lot of the content down, but from what I heard there's a lot more stuff/details that need to be memorized for the DAT so I want to prepare with the best resources. 1) What are the resources to use to study for the DAT for content? Are there certain prep books to buy? Or is there online stuff thats better? (i keep seeing DATcrusher or DATdestroyer being mentioned on places). 2) What is the best way to prepare for the perceptual portion of the test? (best resource) 3) Best place to get practice questions/exams? 4) Has anyone done the MCAT before and the DAT? How was the transition / how do they compare? Thanks a lot!!!
  10. Reading through the invite/regret threads, people post that they have "average ECs" and then go on to say they have a few publications or a few poster presentations. Is this really the norm? I've been involved in research but have no publications or poster presentations yet, and not sure if I will even get one.

  12. Hi, I want to start preparing for the PAT section of the DAT, but I am not sure what resource would be best to use. For those of you who did well on PAT, what resource(s) did you find really helped prepare you? Thanks.
  13. Oh shoot, I didn't even realize that I may have to write the DAT this year. I was planning on getting through this year and learning orgo, etc. and then studying for the DAT next summer and writing the DAT in November of my 3rd year and then apply for dental school. Is this even possible? When are dental applications due? Thanks so much for the information, you've been very helpful.
  14. 3.8??? I thought they said the minimum for an interview was 3.85?! And may i ask what your MCAT scores were? Thanks!
