  1. Fast block of polyspermy for sea urchins. You will not find this on any resource for the DAT. This is knowledge from taking Developmental Biology courses in university.
  2. I wrote Casper twice now, it is straight forward. Just do the two practice tests on the Casper website and write down some personal experiences you can use for certain traits. Most of the questions are situational based anyways and just ask for your advice. We have a Facebook group for Aus dental applicants for 2021 intake. PM me if you want to join.
  3. Australia has its benefits. I heard from various peers you get way more clinical experience than uoft/western, which I prefer. Yes it is about 100-150k more, but in my position, I would rather get into a dental school as soon as I can (January 2021) instead of waiting another year because I have a practice set up for me when I am done the 4 years.
  4. Your GPA is fine. If you are writing the DAT for first time do your best to make sure your RC is above the minimum (18). To do decent on the DAT (20+), 2-3 months is all you need it is not a hard test you just have to know as much as you can and practice. My advice to you is that you should focus on yourself and don't worry about other people's stats or extracurriculars. I know people with high gpa/DATs that didn't even get to interview stage. The most important thing is meeting the minimum requirements and writing a good personal statement / answering the sketch questions well. If you want to get into UWO, start prepping for interviews; the interviews is 100% the most important component when you are at this stage and even when you think you are decent at interviewing, there will be people better than you. Gain those interview skills ASAP. There is also a bit of luck / subjectivity getting into UWO. Pm me if you want more info/advice.
  5. My agpa for Melbourne is 3.92 and 22.5 for the 4 sections, so thats great to hear. Can anyone comment about UWA stats for offers?
  6. Can anyone comment on their stats for getting into Melbourne, UWA, or USyd? Would be nice to use as a reference. They are not doing interviews this year because of COVID-19 but UWA has a CASPER component that only select candidates received.
  7. Hey I got the invite to. The times do suck! Mines at 8PM. Other one was 5AM. My choices in preference are UWA > Melbourne > Syd.
  8. I am down to make a Facebook group. Did anyone else receive an e-mail from UWA regarding CASPer and no interviews?
  9. Not sure if anyone got HWL message. Can anyone confirm? I think you have to email admissions to find this out.
  10. Waitlist GPA: 3.98/4.00 (95%) DAT: RC/AA/PAT 21/23/21 ABS: pre-dent founder/president, >300 hrs shadowing, receptionist at community dental clinic, teaching, clinical research, etc. Interview: Straight forward questions and felt I was personable for most questions. However, time limit was short for some questions and I feel like the timer kept throwing me off. Agree with above about not having reactions to gauge. Imo, I am not impressed with the online interview format but I understand they tried their best given the circumstances. Overall, very disappointed with the outcome but hoping for the best with the waitlist movement! Plz don't send me to Australia, I hate spiders lol.
  11. -Grind content for a month or two from various resources. I used Campbells textbook/ppt slides (free online) -Do questions the month before the DAT from various resources
  12. https://www.schulich.uwo.ca/med_dent_admissions/post_admission/dentistry.html I'm thinking offers will be out tomorrow. This page was just updated today.
  13. Just making it this far should mean the world to everyone no matter your situation and how you think you did on the interview. We all deserve to be dental students, whether it be this cycle or next. Best of luck to all. We will hear results soon.
