  1. A lot of the American dental schools have been giving as little as a 4 day turn-around from sending out the invite to the interview day. Since everything is virtual this year they don't have to take travel into consideration, so it's possible that invites don't go out till later than usual.
  2. Did your application need to be marked as complete by August 31 to receive an early interview? I submitted everything early except for my AP scores which took forever due to COVID delays. I did send in an unofficial score report by August 31 though :/ I really hope I am being considered for an early interview... When you guys look at your portal does it say your session is 2021W(1)?
  3. Piggybacking off of your question, to make the early deadline do all admissions materials needed to be submitted and received? I didn't realize that UBC requires you to send your AP test scores to apply and the official score report will likely not arrive until after Aug 31.
  4. I just signed up for CASPer today and the list of Canadian dental schools that you can submit to are UBC, McGill, and Montreal. I am applying to UBC and McGill so I instinctively signed up for those ones and paid the fees. Later I checked the UBC dental page and they have a note with an asterisk saying that the CASPer test is not required. After creating this thread I snooped around premed101 a little more and it seems like some schools are having applicants submit CASPer without even taking the score into consideration in order to research if there is a correlation between CASPer score and student success? It seems a little unethical to make students pay for CASPer for this purpose though. It's only $12 to add an additional school but still, that could have been some nice takeout :'(
  5. Anyone taking CASPer for UBC? It says it's not required on their webpage but does anyone have any opinions on if it would boost your application whether or not you take it?
  6. How are you planning on juggling the differing US and Canadian timelines? What if you get accepted to US schools in December and you haven’t even interviewed for Canadian schools yet?
  7. Anyone applying to Canadian dental schools through AADSAS this year? Or anyone who has done this in previous cycles? I went to undergrad in America and I'm doing a research fellowship here, so I'm applying to Canadian and American dental schools. Does applying through AADSAS change the way you receive updates/portal access for each school? Also, since the cycles for Canadian and American schools are so different, does anyone have experience in juggling both? Looking through these forums it looks like most Canadian dental schools start sending out invites in January and acceptances in March? While American dental schools are sending out interview invites even now and acceptances in December? Anyone have any insight on maneuvering through both of these application processes?
