  1. Dw about the stat increase. There's always going to be some kind of variation so just do the best that you can. My GPA was very slightly below the mean GPA for the 2nd and 3rd time I applied and my DAT was around the average too. If you're hovering around the mean for stats, you should be able to snag an interview invite and go from there.
  2. For bio I used Cliffs Bio as a review of what I forgot from when I took my intro bio courses. You can find someone selling it or find a pdf online. I also used an anki DAT deck I found online and made a deck of mistakes I made from whatever resources I happened to be using. I started my review around May or June and finished up reviewing the content by around mid-late August. From September to November I tried to just drill questions from the resources I had and brush up on whatever I forgot from my review. Try to find what works best for you and your schedule. Take what I say with a grain of salt too since I got rekt with an 18 for BIO when I actually focused on the sciences section doing what I mentioned above.
  3. DATCrusher and Chad's Videos were sufficient for when I studied. I used whatever resources DATCrusher had for the PAT and used the practice tests to pinpoint my weak spots about a month before I had to take the DAT. Even though I'm not that great with chemistry, Chad's Videos definitely helped me with boosting my Chem score. IMO DAT Destroyer is overkill if you're using it for the Canadian DAT. I reviewed the Bio and Chem questions in the book and I found it didn't help me much on test day. Yeah. Definitely get a good grasp of the topics they list on the CDA website under biology. I'd focus on breadth of knowledge over depth of knowledge since test content could have the odd question on ecology, behaviour, etc. There's anki decks and quizlet resources if you look around but definitely make your own flashcards to get down concepts that are a bit fuzzy for you.
  4. Third time's a charm after all. Just got in off WL this morning via e-mail. My stats are posted above.
  5. Hello WL again. 3.88, 70, 32 I guess I get another year to work on my nervous demeanor and my incompetence with the MMIs unless WL pulls through. My GPA is more or less hardstuck and I don't have it in me to rewrite the DAT a 4th time. Lots of stuff on my mind but I'll be distracting myself in the meantime hoping for the best but expecting the worst. Congrats to everyone that managed to get in.
  6. I got the same response. Give them a while to get around to us rejects. They'll get around to us eventually once they get their 2023 class affairs settled.
  7. I was part of the last interview weekend at the 3pm slot. Vicki had said definitely by the end of March during our exit interview. I don't remember hearing a March 11 during the conversation. She had mentioned that they were going to have 2 or so meetings to discuss it and that one of the meetings would have been last Friday. Now whether that's the first of them or the last them I can't say for sure.
  8. Yeah the MMI questions were pretty vanilla compared to what I've gotten from past interviews. This interview was first time I didn't feel terrible about my responses. Of course I could've explained things a bit better but for me it's an improvement compared to when I've applied the first 2 times. Hopefully it turns out well for everyone.
  9. Very late interview invite as someone dropped theirs! Anyone have any scheduling info as I hastily try to plan a trip over to Vancouver? The e-mail said Friday and Saturday but not much asides from that.
  10. Rejected. UofT was a bit of a reach for me anyway thanks to the grade conversions and because they don't look at the fall semester marks.
  11. Confirmed UofT sent me an e-mail around a day after the scores came out confirming they have all my documents.
