    DAT what to expect

    Hey guys, I'll be writing the Canadian DAT at UofT this Saturday for the first time and was wondering what to expect when I sit down. How will I be seated, what will I see on the table in front of me, whats the overall atmosphere like? Kind of hoping for a step-by-step from someone who has written so I can calm my nerves a bit! How many pencils will we be given, erasers, blank sheets for rough work?? Also, are we allowed to write on the question sheets, will we be answering on a scantron, is it just a clock or is it a timer?
  2. Hey all, Selling a DAT Bootcamp Premium account. I bought 10 days ago, it's active until Dec 19. Really useful for studying with lots of practice, especially for the PAT section. I am not writing anymore, willing to negotiate price. PM for more info/proof etc !
  3. Hi, im wondering if anyone knows the exact dimensions of the DAT soap for this November? Is it 83 mm for length and 16 mm for diameter? Thank you very much for your answers! :)
  4. Thoughts on Kaplan DAT prep?
  5. Anyone selling their DAT materials in Vancouver? I'm hoping to buy DAT prep books.
  6. I'm a bachelor of science student in my third year of my degree in Alberta, Canada majoring in biology. These are my stats:GPA: 3.704CDAT: 19 AA19 BIO19 CHEM19 TS20 RC16 PATI've got more than 100 hours of shadowing. I've done a lot of volunteering and for long periods of time, I've also started my own club in my university and am an executive for my universities Golden Key Chapter club and have been for two years now. By the time I finish my GPA should be around a 3.75-3.8 I hope. Obviously my scores are average and my PAT is quite low. What are my chances realistically of getting into dental school in the USA or Australia? Should I even bother applying or just retake the DAT? Thank you.
  7. I'm selling the 9th Edition ExamKrackers MCAT Complete Study Package (used - like new) for $100, ExamKrackers 2nd Edition 101 Passages in MCAT: Verbal Reasoning (used - like new) for $15, and The Princeton Review: Cracking the DAT 2012 (used - good) for $50. PM me if interested
  8. Hi Everyone, I was planning on writing the Canadian DAT this month (February 24, 2018), but due to extenuating circumstances I won't be able to. I was wondering if I wrote the next DAT (November 3rd, 2018), Would I still be able to apply to dental schools for that cycle (i.e write Nov 2018, apply Dec 2018)? The deadline is generally Dec 1, and it takes 8 weeks to get DAT scores back. Would I be able to apply to schools even if I don't have my DAT scores back? Thanks in Advance
  9. I recently took the Canadian DAT in November and got these scores.Reading comp: 20BIOL: 18Chem: 17Sci Total: 18Academic Average: 18PAT: 14MDT: 6This was my first time taking the DAT, and I went into it with zero preparation, based off these scores alone do you think there is any chance I could make it into a Canadian Dental school or should I retake the DAT in February and actually prepare properly this time.My GPA right now is at 3.7, but by the time i finish it'll probably be around 3.8-3.9ish
  10. Hey Guys, Any thoughts on today’s DAT ? Imo, Bio and Chem were just fine, no surprises, though a few tricky Qs here and there... PAT: Aperture was borderline-hard for me, TFE, there were too many similar answer choices, overall not too bad. The rest of them weren’t that bad. RCT: Wtf was going on with the first and last passage ? I guessed on a bunch and didn’t have time to properly answer Qs on the last passage, guess got wrecked lol
  11. Hi, I am selling access to my DAT Bootcamp premium access which expires at the end of December. This is a great resource for because of the abundance of past DAT exam questions you can access through their practice tests. It is amazing for PAT because they have generators and thorough video explanations on strategies for PAT. I am also selling my Canadian Dental Association DAT Preparation Manual. This is the only exam that was released by the official Canadian DAT administrator and is a great way to gauge your preparedness. Ideally, we can meet in person in Vancouver to ensure a smooth transaction. $50 each - negotiable. Please message me for more details.
  12. Hi Guys I am planning to take the cDAT in February and I will be officially starting my review after my finals. I am trying to spend as little amount on the prep materials so I wanted to know what the recommendation for the PAT section and just overall review for the exam would be? I have searched this forum extensively and there isn't any clear response for what people would recommend for the cDAT. I am more interested in how datcrusher holds up in comparison to other companies. I have a solid bio background because of my major, and I will be reviewing chem. Currently I have Feralis and AP Cliff's, IQ publications reading and Bio/chem book, kaplan review notes (1000 page book), and the CDA 2014 manual. I am planning to get Chad's videos ($50) for chem and just need something for the PAT section and some extra practice exams and questions. I saw that the datcrusher is pretty cheap overall, includes everything I would need, and is geared towards the cDAT. Then there's datbootcam and crackthedat who offer more practice questions, a lot of extra stuff that I wouldn't need, higher prices and are not geared towards the cDAT. So it would be really helpful to see what you guys would recommend to get for online practice. Also, since I have the 2014 CDA manual, i wanted to know if I should get a 2017 manual or if they have the same content for the practice exam that's included?
  13. Hey guys, I'm a first year student looking to prepare for and write the DAT in the next year. There seems to be countless pricey resources available which makes it hard to narrow down what to use. Can anyone who has written the DAT (and did well) give me a brief overview of the best resources to be had for the Canadian DAT. Additionally, do you think it might be too early for me to write the DAT while only being in first year? Thank you.
  14. Hello, I am not sure when would be a good time to take the DAT. Here's my situation: I just graduated from CEGEP, and I didn't take the DAT before as I didn't think I had a great chance at getting into dental school because of my R score (32.5, at the time. My R score is now 33) and my below average CV (some volunteering abroad, some non-related work experience, some school clubs, non-impressive awards, no research/pubs). I also didn't have time to study the summer between my 1st and 2nd year of cegep, as I had worked 90 hours/week. I applied to McGill Dent-P but obviously didn't get in. My R score is now better (33, during my 4th semester I had a 34.95), and I plan to improve my CRU with my university GPA. My CV is also a bit better. Here are my questions: 1. The requirements for different universities are very confusing and honestly, I'm having an extremely hard time finding them out. Which francophone universities accept students en-cours de bac, and what are the CRU requirements? 2. When should I take the DAT? I haven't started studying, and I know I wouldn't feel prepared unless I studied 3-4 months so I don't feel great about taking it in September (I would likely be prepared in 1-2 months, but I wouldn't feel calm/confident. And stress strongly affects my results). I'm also working full-time and therefore don't have as many hours in a day to study for the DAT. I also really don't remember a lot of the basic bio, chem, etc. and so it would probably be quite difficult for me to study the material as I would have to learn everything again. Would I be able to take it in February and still have the results in time to apply to francophone universities as a candidat universitaire en cours de bac? Thank you for taking the time to read this! I really appreciate all answers.
  15. Hey guys, I just had a quick question regarding the PAT section for the CDAT. I'm writing the CDAT this November, and I noticed that in the preparation manual that they gave me this year, in the answer key for the PAT section (page 127) it says that "as part of the testing methodology, there are 15 questions on the Perceptual Ability Test that are not scored." I've written the DAT before and I've looked back at my old preparation manual and this isn't written in the the back in previous years. Does anyone know if this is something new? Does this mean you automatically get 15 questions free in a sense? Thanks!

  17. I'm using primarily American materials to study for the Canadian DAT this November. Was wondering if I need to study anything regarding plants besides photosynthesis. Thanks!
  18. I've looked at a billion forums and discussions online, checked the university statistics but I want someone to give me the reality check. I'm majoring in Biochemistry (honors program) at a canadian university. I'll be applying to american and canadian dental schools next year. And my cumulative average is 81.55% and major average is 82.22%. Given that I do well on the DAT and that I will be doing my thesis this year, I'll probably be doing some dental shadowing, do I have a chance? I know other factors count but I need to know my chances based solely on the information provided.

  20. Hello I am wondering what my chances are for UBC Dentistry GPA: 84.5 DAT: 24AA and 23PAT and I am IP for UBC.
  21. Has anyone used the American DAT to apply to UofT? I emailed them asking whether Canadian students can use the American DAT and they responded saying that it is allowed. However, on their website, it states: The American Dental Admission Test (DAT) is an acceptable equivalent for applicants living or attending school outside of Canada I'm not sure what this statement means, but it implies that Canadian university students cannot use the ADAT in application process. Any info on this topic would be appreciated!
  22. When are the marks for cdat Feb 2017 coming out? It's been over a month, and I'm just wondering.
  23. Hey folks, For those who've written cDAT today, how was it? I felt that PAT and RCT sections were bit hard, but bio/chem were pretty doable. If it wasn't your first time, how was it compared to the previous DAT version? Cheers
  24. I'm taking the cDAT this february and I'm not able to download the DAT confirmation letter for some reason. I tried to email them but I got no response. Is it like this for anyone too?
  25. I had a lot of positive feedback a while ago when I posted my first app. I just want to let you know that I've finished my second app for the Hole Punching section of the PAT. It generates hole punching question so you can practice on the go. Like the title says, the app is completely FREE to use. You can find it on this here, https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/dat-hole-punching/id1201489406?ls=1&mt=8 or search "DAT Hole Punching" on the iOS Apps Store. Please let me know any question, comment, or recommendations you might have. I would love to hear them. Good luck andHappy Studying! I hope this post isn't breaking any forum rules.
