I saw in the acceptance letter something about a laptop program, can anyone whose currently going there offer some insight?

It's to be able to run a special software the clinics use. Any decent laptop, mac or windows, will do.

Waitlisted as well, really sucks that they didn't give out the ranking!

 

GPA: 3.9+

DAT: 21AA  20PAT

Interview: I felt good about 2/3 stations.

Year: 3rd

 

Happy to have gotten this far! Always next year if I don't make it off the list :)

Accepted 

GPA with worst year dropped: 3.92

DAT: 23 AA / 19 PAT

Interview: Felt alright, guess it was good enough.

Curious that we have to accept/reject the offer by March 8th, I guess UofT wants you to be committed to them lol. Was this the case before as well? Because that leaves me wondering how the waitlist was moving from March-August in previous years?

Yeah they gave you 2 weeks to accept last year as well. Waitlist still moved into the early 30's last year albeit verry slowly. Majority of movement happened in August.

Also does this mean they have to receive the slip + check by March 8? Or the mail has to be dated before then? With the postal strike I’m a little worried...

So  since the waitlist moved past March that means people accepted the offer, gave their non-refundable $2000 deposit, and THEN rejected their acceptance in favour of some other dental/medical school? That means people are leaving $2000 on the table? Damn.

Yup! At least UofT's deposit is only $2000 I think UBC is like $13000? and still I've heard of people giving that up to go to a different school. I guess when you're dealing with hundreds of thousands of dollars of tuition/living expenses over the next 4 years what's a measly $2000 :P

To those accepted, 

 

It's generally agreed upon that we have to have a 75+% GPA in ALL our current courses in order to be FULLY (and not conditionally) accepted, correct? 

To clarify, not an ANNUAL gpa of > 3.0 but literally every course has to be >3.0. 

 

 

I believe it is a 3.0 average over your entire year this year, not for each course. It says "an annual GPA" of 3.0.

My interpretation is actually individual courses have to be over 3.0, because it says "at least 3.0 must be maintained in any course taken during the year."

Exactly you guys, 

The FAQ page mentions annual GPA

While 

The acceptance letter says any courses

I'll be sure to inform the forum once we get to the bottom of this 

Can confirm. Source: 1st year who experimented with this by shitting the bed on my last exam of undergrad cuz I didn't care.
