    UBC Invite/Regrets 2019

    Btw once you’re at the interview stage it’s 100% Interview performance. You just need the gpa to get to phase 2 and then be on the same playing field
  2. I still want to keep both feet in these careers- has anyone known anyone who has gone into dentistry (or any other health professional school) and then successfully got into med midway through? I have dentistry offers at UofT and UBC, no med interview invites, but I applied to dentistry as a back up to my lifelong goal of medicine. I had interview shots at UOttawa med and UBC last year, both unsuccessful, and then had no interview invites this year. If I decline dental offers, my DAT scores expire and I completely lose the opportunity to be a dentist, something that I would still genuinely be happy doing. Med is my absolute dream, but I don’t want to close a great door when I had tried 4 cycles now with medicine. Basically I’m thinking about applying to med this next cycle, with the intent to leave DDS after first year if I get accepted. Is this a bad decision?? All thoughts are welcome

    Accepted OOP Although leaning towards UofT so the waitlist may move

    Everyone who hasn’t heard yet - stay neutral. I remember them saying during orientation that they release in waves and it’s not related to reject/waitlist/offer response
  5. Anyone OOP and got off the waitlist?
  6. Is there a time frame expected for those on the waitlist? If anyone is called off the waitlist - let us know! I think interview invitees were supposed to confirm by Thursday.
  7. you're competing against all out of province applicants. last year only 15 applicants were interviewed for 5 OOP spots. I interviewed last year as OOP but wasn't successful, let me know if you have any questions
  8. Regrets - My NAQ dropped by 10 points from last year
  9. I empathize with you, those are some really great scores. This is my 4th time applying and I had an interview for the first time last year. Does anyone have the stats for AQ and NAQ interview cut offs last year? I know it may change, but I need some reassurance to settle nerves today.

    OOP Averages

    I wouldn’t believe everything people say aha. Don’t worry, there won’t be a representative response, just wait a couple of days!

    Interested in Skype too!
  12. I'd be interested! Any confirmation about UofT dental being MMI this year?
  13. Your post is very kind, thanks a lot. I sent you a message.
