  1. Hey guys, I'm a first year student. I recently had the idea of applying for one of the unis in Australia for dent (Queensland most likely). They take in my highschool marks for admission and not my Uni GPA since i would be applying before the end of my first year. This seems like a good idea to save time and avoid Canada's low admission chances. Plus my highschool mark was pretty good (mid 90) so I think I have a decent chance. The only catch is that it's a 400k tuition, with prob 100k more for living expenses (5 year course btw). I was thinking that since I would be graduating at around 24, I can grind for a couple of years to pay off a huge chunk before marriage and other concerns get on my mind. I should note that my mom is a dentist so maybe finding a job would be easier for me. Any advice? honestly anything would help. Of course the amount of debt is crazy but I'm thinking that it might be worth it (again, I might be stupid in thinking that, so lmk). Thanks in advance folks

    DENT-P 2018

    Hi, Anyone applied to Dent-P at McGill for Fall 2018? What do you think will be the new R-score required for an interview? What are they looking for in CVPN's? Did you guys apply to the French dental schools too?
  3. 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.
  4. Creating this thread for anyone that has been waitlisted at UBC to update us on their status, or for anyone that is planning on dropping their spot to inform us
  5. (1) What is the process of applying for the DOTP like and how competitive is it to get in (academically and physically)? (2) Is it possible to apply for the DOTP during your second or third year of dental school? (3) I feel like I would like working for the Canadian Forces as I always have had a knack for adventure, but if I had to end my contract earlier (e.g. if I wanted to open a private practice even before my obligatory service ends), how huge will the penalty be? (4) I know it helps to be bilingual but do the Forces still consider you if you only speak English? Also, feel free to share your experiences about going through the DOTP and also your life as a dental officer. What is your everyday life like and how do you like it? Thank you!!

    DENT-P 2018

  7. Hi everyone! I am starting this thread because we should be hearing from McGill about interviews pretty soon. From previous threads, applicants have heard back around Jan 21st, and admissions said they should send them out before Jan. 26 so basically, we should hear from this by the end of the week. Please post below if you were accepted or rejected, IP or OOP, GPA and hours of volunteer/extra-curricular work Good luck to everyone!
  8. The class of 2021 has created this year's interview video which can be viewed here: https://vimeo.com/255087550 Good luck to all candidates who will be interviewing this weekend - we look forward to seeing you there!
  9. Email released today (Jan. 16, 2017) for an invitation to the Open House on Feb. 17 and Interviews on Feb. 18 for the UBC DMD Class of 2021! Please feel free to share stats for future applicants and to form practice groups! (: Here's mine: Invite Residence: IP (McGill) GPA: 3.85 (~87%) DAT: 23AA 20PAT Congratulations on those who got interview invites, hope to see you soon! For those who got regrets, never give up! (:
  10. 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
  11. Hi I'm currently a 3rd year sciences student in Canada. My plan is to go into dentistry in Canada however the schools here are very competitive so I'm definitely going to be applying to a lot of USA schools as well. I've been looking at the fees for a lot of dental schools and I've seen ranges from $250k USD all the way up to $500-600k USD, for other Canadian students who have attended dental schools in the USA how difficult is it to get a loan? Can you even get a loan that's going to pay for $500k-600k USD? If not how did you fund your dental school fees? Thank you.
  12. I'm finishing up my Master's (thesis) and I wasn't originally going to apply to UofT since my GPA with the lowest year dropped is 3.78 but I'm in that phase of "there's no harm putting in an application anyway", considering the deadline is nearing. Can someone give me an honest reply at my chance? I'm not sure if I'm wasting money by filling the app out. Thanks!
  13. Hey guys, I'm sorry if these types of posts are not allowed and mods please take down if you see fit. I'm a Australian grad and first year associate dentist in the Toronto area. I have started a dental podcast interviewing other new grads from around the world giving great in sight into to day to day clinical life and hoping to pick up some wisdom and learn from each guest. There's not too many Canadian based dental podcasts out there so it may be pretty relevant to you guys who are new grads or are in dental school now. This is not a money making venture and I'm not selling anything. Just a side hobby I've started to connect with other like minded dentists. Can find the "noobie dentist podcast" on iTunes and Stitcher or on my website at www.noobiedentist.com Can also check out my instagram page: @noobiedentist
  14. I am an OOP applicant for Western Schulich dental school What are my chances?? Has anyone been interviewed with such stats? I have a pretty good amount of EC's as well. I have tried to look at every thread, but I am still very unsure.
  15. Hi, I'm going into Ualberta this year and want to get into dentistry, the competitive gpa here is really high (3.9 last year) and I was wondering if there is any courses that are just easy gpa boosters. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks
  16. Hi premed and predent, First of all, I'd like to congratulate you. If you're seeing this post, that means you're doing your best in taking steps to achieve your goal. Yes, it is extremely useful to have someone who already gone through the process to help you. This is why I'm here: I would like to help you with your application, CV, letter of intent, interview (traditional or MMI), and CASPer. My background: I'm a medical student in Quebec. I was also a dental student for 5 years (I'm actually a dentist now, but I'm not practicing dentistry because of medical school). I have a lot of experience in MMI, CV and letter of intent because of my previous application experience. I was also in the admission committee when I was a 3rd-year student. I have read many premeds' letters, CV, and practice MMI with them. I'm bilingual (English and French). I've already helped a few premed students, and I always have a lot of pleasure doing this service. I usually do Skype with my students, however I'm open to other alternatives. I only charge 45$ (Canadian) per hour, as I said I do this more because I enjoy doing it. (If I want money, I'd be working as a dentist now). PM me here, or send me an email: colegate17@gmail.com Best luck for your future endeavours. Dr. Y, DMD, MD Candidate
  17. Hi pre-med and pre-dental students, First of all, I'd like to congratulate you. If you're seeing this post, that means you're doing your best in taking steps to achieve your goal. Yes, it is extremely useful to have someone who already gone through the process to help you. This is why I'm here: I would like to help you with your application, CV, letter of intent, interview (traditional or MMI), and CASPer. My background: I'm a medical student in Quebec. I was also a dental student for the past 5 years. I'm actually a dentist now, but I'm not practicing dentistry because I'm attending a medical school. I have a lot of experience in MMI, CV and letter of intent because of my previous application experience. I was also in the admission committee when I was a 3rd-year student. I have read many premeds' letters, CV, and practice MMI with them. For the interviews (MMI and traditional), I usually spend the first 20-30 min giving my students some tips/tricks that they need to know (including different type of stations + systematic approach to deal with differents types of scenarios). And then we practice with mock interviews. At the end of each scenario, I give them my evaluation (there are specific criteria) and feedback/suggestions. I'm bilingual (English and French). I've already helped a few premed students, and I always have a lot of pleasure doing this service. I usually do Skype with my students, however I'm open to other alternatives. I only charge 45$ (Canadian) per hour. PM me here, or send me an email: dr.wu.dmd.md@outlook.com Best luck for your future endeavours. Dr. Wu, DMD, MD Candidate
  18. I'm considering on applying to dental school, however I think my lack of motor skills will hold me back from a career in dentistry. Is this a valid concern?
  19. Well everybody, early acceptances for the UofA DDS 2021 class should be coming out pretty soon. For all those accepted here is the class fb page: http://www.facebook.com/groups/1514349881908667/ Just a reminder for anyone who doesn't hear back for early acceptances in May, there are still the general acceptances and waitlist which come out in the first few weeks of July. As in previous years feel free to use this thread to post stats, ect... PS. Congratulations to all those who are accepted can't wait to meet you all!!
  20. What would be considered a mark (in %) that would almost fufill the gpa section for a guaranteed interview? I'm specifically talking about the marks, not the DAT or autobio. I'm thinking around 91%.. not sure if I can reach that
  21. Bonjour à tous je suis nouvelle sur ce forum, bien que je le visite quotidiennement depuis de nombreux mois J'ai accepté précédemment mon offre à McGill dans leur programme de 5 ans, mais je viens également de recevoir une offre à l'UdeM... Un choix que je ne pensais pas avoir à faire s'impose maintenant à moi. J'hésite entre les deux places. Votre avis? Bien que les deux soient sur 5 ans, je sais qu'il n'y a pas d'année préparatoire à l'UdeM. Je viens d'une petite région et ne connait aucun dentiste provenant de McGill, j'ai donc très peu d'info quant à la qualité de leur programme, etc. J'ai toutefois visité les deux cliniques et je dois avouer avoir adoré les installations de McGill. I'm pretty much bilingual, but I'm still a bit anxious about studying in English, mainly because of the more scientific vocabulary that I'll have to learn. Is the transition that hard? What should I choose?
  22. Hello I am wondering what my chances are for UBC Dentistry GPA: 84.5 DAT: 24AA and 23PAT and I am IP for UBC.
  23. Hi, I am currently in CEGEP. Long story short I did a Tremplin DEC ( two semesters) before getting into Health Sciences. I am now decided that Dentistry is my main goal.. however, I'm really concerned about whether I should: Go to university in english (my mother tongue is french and I'm also attending a french cegep) If so, which is university ( Concordia or Mcgill) is better if I do a science/med oriented undergrad program in order to get into dental school What major should I take? This is really my main concern because I wanna chose a good major where I feel like I can earn good grades and perform well! For example, physiology or biology would be the death for me because most of the applicants want to pursue into medecine. So there's gonna be a lot of competiton. But I am aware that I'm gonna have to take science classes (pre requisites) for DENT and I will have to be a strong applicant. I heard a lot that McGill is better than Concordia when it comes to research, labs, people, campus, etc. Is it true ?? I hope it will also help other confused cegepians ! Good Luck!
  24. 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!
