    UofT Interview Invites 2019

    The latter. BeMo and Astroff were a waste of time for me. Practice as much as you can with other people and just get comfortable talking out loud to someone for 7 minutes. Try to be yourself, be personable, don't sound robotic, don't over-analyze the question and just talk naturally while trying to draw on your past experiences and demonstrate your personality. Treat the interviewer like an old friend but be courteous and professional. I'm glad I don't have to go through the whole process again but if I did, one thing I would do differently this time is to practice, practice, practice. I thought practicing an hour a week with others was enough but it should have been an hour a day at least. Best of luck.

    UWO admissions selection process

    I don't know dog but worrying about your application isn't going to change anything believe me. My advice for everyone applying out there, if you get in this year amazing, congratulations, if you don't - do what you can to improve your application and try again next year! There's people in my class in their late 20's / early 30's, people with 2 undergrads, people with masters, people who have written the DAT multiple times, interviewed multiple times etc. If dentistry is something you're passionate about it is definitely attainable.

    UWO admissions selection process

    Ah that's a lot more subjective. I'm not sure how exactly they rank applicants but ABS and personal statements def play a big role because my friend didn't even get an interview at Western yet ended up being accepted to McGill ...

    Interview plays a big role. Was rejected last year with a 91 avg and 21+ DAT as well as a good ABS but felt I did terrible on the interview.

    November 2018 DAT Thoughts

    If it makes any of you better schools like UofT and Western barely care about DAT anymore. I know tons of people who have gotten in with mediocre dat scores, myself included. GPA and interview are way more important.
  6. how important is research in terms of competitiveness? you said they look at class rank, do you know what they do if your school doesn't use a ranking system?
