    The slow decay of dentistry

    https://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/small-business/sb-growth/glut-of-dentists-causes-aches-in-canadas-big-cities/article36322773/ Might be of interest, a little older article but hits some good points.
  2. Also wondering this. AFAIK there hasn't been any movement since.
  3. Saskatoon is pretty lacking in high-rises overall, unless you plan on living downtown, which is a parking nightmare, although transit is pretty good from downtown. I'd recommend somewhere close to 8th St or Sutherland for distance wise. If you wanna be walking distance your only option is pretty much student housing provided by uni. I can tell you with a high certainty you won't find a high rise within walking distance.

    Strengths and Weaknesses of UofS?

    Gonna try to give you info that Anti-Dentite didn't, but Saskatoon is a decent sized city, around 250K, but then again, its not like Ontario where you are surrounded by populated cities. The closest big city we have is Regina (~3 hrs) and there is not much they offer that Saskatoon doesn't. As he mentioned, getting to/from uni without a car, the only option you have is bus or biking, so consider that when finding a place. There are several housing options offered by the university that are pretty much across the street (College Quarter, Grad House), but otherwise I'd stick to areas around Sutherland, College Park and 8th Street if distance is an issue. Otherwise if you have a car, Stonebridge, Rosewood and Willowgrove are nicer areas. I would say overall that people here are nice, but then again there are areas where crime/violence is more of an issue. I would say that most people living in Saskatoon have probably been here a large chunk of their life. Downtown is more business oriented than entertainment oriented I would say. Cost of living is around 800+ for a 1bd apt and around 1200+ for a 2bd, highly dependant on the area though. In the summer there are a lot of green areas, perfect for hiking/biking and lots to do outdoors. That's about all I can think of, but let me know if you want to know more.

    Strengths and Weaknesses of UofS?

    Keep in mind, you'll be attending/living in either place for at least 48 months, so consider the atmosphere of the city, living costs, transportation, etc. I've lived in Saskatoon for the last 4 years, if you have any questions. I assume you're Canadian, are you from SK?
  9. IP Accepted from the wait list Top third So excited for first year
  10. Anybody know how many people a "third" consists of? I'm thinking 9 or 12 people total, because 15 and 18 would be unlikely.
