  1. I can’t guarantee but I really doubt they would ask us questions about the healthcare system, especially not how it works in the US, since it’s only 30min long and the focus should be on dentistry
  2. Literally winging not sure how to solve this, just a candidate. Interested in learning how but anyone correct me if I'm wrong and add ideas. I would first figure out the reason why she didn't seek dental care for her child. Then suggest ways of addressing different reasons. Maybe her child's pain went away in the week that has gone and she decided it wasn't worth the cost to have her child seen. If this was the case I would reinforce the importance of having her child see the dentist because there could be some underlying harm that would need immediate attention. Mention there are time sensitive issues with tooth decay. If she delays treatment further, the decay may spread so that the child would need a more invasive and expensive treatment, such as a root canal, over cavity fillings. Another possible reason is that she can't afford treatment, which is why she may be looking for a dentist accepting monthly payment installations. This is unfortunate because dentists have a conflict between advocating for their patients and running their own business so there is not much a dentist can do about changing their costs besides delaying billing. This is where we mention any resources we can offer? like does she qualify for certain dental grants available through the government. Or if she has looked into purchasing health insurance plans. While reasserting the importance and time sensitive need for her child to see a dentist. ??? seems pretty bare anyone like to add
  3. Can anyone at least tell us the question types to expect for this dental MMI?? Medical MMI interviews can include anything in addition to basic case-scenario questions like role-playing, quotes, pictures/videos. This would seem pretty extreme for UofT to include these without giving us a heads up. Is it safe to say that we'll only be asked case-scenario questions?
  4. Invite IP GPA: 3.97 (Master's) DAT: AA 24 PAT: 20 Congrats and good luck!
  5. Can anyone tell us about the format of the MMI? ie. amount of minutes we have to read the prompt, and the amount of time we have to respond, how many prompts.. I know we probably don't know yet but incase someone does this would be helpful to start preparing early. I'll try to contact next week.
  6. I agree, you can tell the PAT was a lot harder this test. 20 for example is the 72nd percentile in feb and the 82nd percentile in nov.
  7. My score scale is still for Feb 2017. Anyone have the scale for Nov they can upload?
  8. I got really lucky because I decided to switch my method the week of my DAT, I wasn’t consistently getting good results reading the whole passage through. I read half of the passage, skimmed the first sentence of later paragraphs for key ideas, then answered the questions with faster search and destroy. Ended with a 23 after averaging 18-20 on bootcamp
  9. RC: 23 AA: 24 PAT: 20 Kind of down about PAT because I was getting better scores while practicing, thought it was much harder than expected. Does anyone know how western incorporates all scores this year?
  10. I applied late October and received mine two weeks later mid November
