  1. Do the schools you're applying to accept the February DAT?
  2. I started carving the last week of September, did one each Wednesday and Saturday until the week before the test where I did one every other day, if I remember correctly.
  3. I only bought soaps from the CDA website (2 packs of 6 soaps). By the time I found out about the datcarvingsoap website, they were sold out (for a few weeks so if you want some from this website, I suggest you buy them sooner rather than later) ... from what I've heard, the test soap texture is closer to the datcarvingsoap texture (please correct me if I'm wrong). As for how many soaps ... as I mentioned, I only had 12 soaps to practice on and I wish I would have bought more, at least another pack.
  4. Shadowing is not necessary for most, if not all, schools (correct me if I'm wrong, but I've not seen it be necessary for any schools that I've looked into). I was accepted at Dal this year with zero shadowing.
  5. Just a little correction for uOttawa. They changed the GPA calculation for next cycle. They will still use your last 3 years of full-time study but they will use the cGPA instead of a wGPA. They will NOT do x3, x2, x1 anymore. Also, for the French Quebec universities, they unfortunately count ALL your undergraduate grades, including repeated courses and summer courses.
  6. I would also read up on Western's requirements because they require that you take courses that correspond to your year of study (3rd year courses in year 3, ...). It is also usually not recommended to repeat courses because a lot of universities will use both grades.
  7. Application for the credit card or for the LOC? My advisor said the application has to be finalized before July 1st to qualify
  8. Sure, there are some people who manage to get in with a low GPA, I'll give you that. However, in your case, you can basically count out McMaster, NOSM, Dalhousie and Memorial from your list because of your geographical status. I think your best bet would be BC since you are IP, but you would need to work on your ECs. Btw, for Dal .... Residents of all other Canadian provinces and territories Minimum of 3.7 on a 4.0 scale in each year assessed. The minimum GPA requirement must be met in EACH year (with 30 credit hours) being assessed to be considered for admission. So yes, you do need a full course load for Dal.
  9. I live in NB so my (very limited) knowledge of job searching wouldn't really apply to such big cities lol
  10. Where (province, big vs small city) do you plan on working?
  11. I put the wrong information for one of my entries and was not able to delete it. I called the admissions dept. and she told me to re-enter it correctly (so that it would be there twice) and that it would be ok because they always double check with your transcripts. I ended up restarting the application though, just in case (paranoia maybe? Haha)
  12. Same thing for me! They have been my references for a few years so I really wanted to express my gratitude for their continued support. They were all very happy/excited for the update
  13. Today is last day to accept offers so the waitlist should start moving this week. I will!
