  1. Thank you for your insight!!! It's really helping me destress. Thank you
  2. That's very good to know! Although it is vague and allows for many ways to tackle this question, it's also much more intimidating I guess. Thank you for your help.
  3. Thank you so much for your response! This is very encouraging and makes me feel slightly better. I'm already in third year and I can't help but feel that my ECs are a little bit lacking. Thank you.
  4. I've heard that ECs are not really looked at by U of T, but to what degree? I have some community volunteering and am an executive on some clubs, but I have no research nor publications. I don't know what the application process for U of T is like. If their personal essays ask what you've done during undergrad, doesn't that technically mean they count ECs? Do they ask about shadowing? Or, are these all helpful for you at the interview stage? This seems like such an obtuse question but I could really use some guidance.
  5. Hey all, I was wondering if there has been any recent updates regarding whether U of T Dentistry will be using Winter 2020 grades as part of the GPA calculation? As well, does anyone know whether the decision made for U of T dentistry be the same as U of T med or are the two completely separate? Stay safe!
  6. Thank you Castellar24! It's reassuring to hear it from someone else. You're right - just got to keep my head in the game and hope for the best!
  7. Hey all, I'm looking to apply to U of T dentistry. I understand that U of T is able to drop an applicant's lowest year GPA provided that it is not their most recent year. My question is, my first year marks were not great at all, while my second year marks were high. Despite U of T saying they'll drop the lowest year (aka my first year), I can't help but have a fear that my first year GPA will affect my chances. I guess my question is, has anyone been admitted with a high GPA after their lowest year was dropped, despite that lowest year being quite low? I've looked everywhere but I was unable to find anyone in the same boat as me. I'm just so afraid that my first year mistakes will be here to haunt me for the rest of my life. Any insight is appreciated. Thanks, guys.
