  1. Has your clinics shut down? What will you guys do about your graduation requirements?
  2. I remember being in in y'alls shoes a few years ago. Best of luck guys!
  3. Hey folks. This is a method that I learned from the upper years at my school to easily recall the tooth eruption sequence for exams, etc. It was so handy during my school years that I just wanted to share it with all of you! It only takes 5 minutes to learn & master. If you're a pre-dent, it will also quickly teach you the tooth numbering system. Give it a shot, hope it helps YouTube Video: Permanent Teeth Eruption Sequence: Tetris Method
  4. Nope not since the curriculum change in 2015-2016. Dent classes take place in the JBM building, and are no longer with the med students
  5. Go through the Nobel Oral Health Care entrance, that should be open weekdays: 8AM-5PM
  6. Does anyone know if there is a BC equivalent for this?
  7. http://www.forbes.com/sites/davidmarotta/2015/07/26/how-quickly-should-i-pay-my-student-loans/#6af5abd81c1a This forbes article suggests: "If you have graduated with student loans you are probably anxious to leave those loans behind you and get on with your life. The best way to accomplish this is to pay the minimum and start saving and investing toward your future financial security." Thoughts?
  8. What was your experience like? Was the faculty friendly / helpful? How is the course structure? How much exposure to clinical experience did you receive? Thanks :^)
  9. Depending on your needs the government will give some bursaries as part of your student loan. I think both together will cover about ~$10k-15k per year and the rest will need to be funded through other means (line of credit, family, own funds etc.) That max loan amount will vary from one province to another. I think the order of operations shouldn't have too big of a impact - whether you'd be applying for student loan first then line of credit or the vice versa. I got my line of credit stuff sorted out first because I just wanted to get it out of the way.
  10. Yeah, Kaplan PAT is not very representative of the actual exam nowadays. I used DAT Bootcamp, and DAT Genius for the PAT section. Both excellent resources but if you had to pick one I'd go with DAT Bootcamp.
  11. (Assuming you're IP) My GPA is same as yours and I received an interview this year with 83% and 22AA, 23 PAT. IMO you have a chance at an interview but if you want to be 100% certain perhaps consider bumping up your AA or PAT by 1 or 2 points. Good luck
  12. I went with Scotia (it's the only bank that loans out $300K for UBC since our tuition is so high), but I encourage you to do your own shopping around and to find one that suits your needs. They usually partition the funding per school year, so expect about ~$62,500 each year
  13. I took the Canadian one first in Nov 2014 and got 22AA and 20PAT - didn't receive an interview for Feb 2015. Then I took the American one in Oct 2015 and got 22AA and 23PAT, and received an interview for Feb 2016
  14. The latter. I wanted to find my score out as soon as possible to gauge my chances and so that I could plan accordingly Yes I have. In terms of 'absolute' difficulty, I would say American is a little harder since it has organic chemistry and quantitative reasoning. But I am also pretty certain that for the American dAT, the grading curve is more lenient in generating in your scores, since the other test takers that you are being measured up against are on the same playing field as you (had to study 6 subjects, and had to have good endurance to survive the entire test). My scores were quite similar however. I received 22AA and 20PAT on the Canadian DAT, and 22AA and 23PAT on the American DAT. I have no idea, but I've got a sneaking suspicion that they just take the AA and PAT, since it would be less work for them
