Schulich Class of 2024 Accepted/Waitlisted/Rejected

Recommended Posts

Accepted

GPA: 3.91 (best 2 years)

DAT: RC/AA/PAT: 20/21/21

ABS: volunteering in university and in community,  >100 hours shadowing, employed at dental office, NO research/publications or experience in lab (in case future applicants are wondering)

Interview: found the questions straight forward, because it was not a live interview, did not have any particular "feeling" coming out of it as there was no human interaction or reactions to gauge.

Waitlist

GPA: 3.98/4.00 (95%)

DAT: RC/AA/PAT 21/23/21

ABS: pre-dent founder/president, >300 hrs shadowing, receptionist at community dental clinic, teaching, clinical research, etc. 

Interview: Straight forward questions and felt I was personable for most questions. However, time limit was short for some questions and I feel like the timer kept throwing me off. Agree with above about not having reactions to gauge. Imo, I am not impressed with the online interview format but I understand they tried their best given the circumstances.

Overall, very disappointed with the outcome but hoping for the best with the waitlist movement! Plz don't send me to Australia, I hate spiders lol.

Result: Waitlisted

GPA: 3.86/4.00

DAT: 19/19/18

ABS: weak on EC department. Only have 20 hrs of shadowing, no research. General club involvement and community volunteer. 

Interview: Didn't think it represented who I am. I was drained halfway through and started doubting myself. Time to find out where on the waitlist I am!

Result: Waitlisted

GPA: 3.97

DAT: 20AA 20RC 22PAT

ABS: Volunteer, research, clubs

Interview: mixed feelings. Thought I couldve said other things after I was done and definitely wasnt representative of me

I didnt get the HWL message for the waitlist, so I'm almost treating it like a rejection. Disappointed but congrats to those who got in!

Not sure if anyone got HWL message. Can anyone confirm? I think you have to email admissions to find this out.

Waitlisted 

 

GPA: ~89.5%

DAT: 25/24/19 (RC/AA/PAT)

ABS: very below average imo......my dad is a dentist, but I had a couple of hours of shadowing & volunteering on a dental bus. Uni extracurriculars were very scattered....volunteered in my prof's lab for a semester, some mentor/tutor stuff, but nothing amazing. Only thing that made me stand out was that I created my own business this year

Interview: not really sure, think I rambled on/threw in some weird words that didn't really make sense/sounded unprofessional

 

If I'm being honest, I think this may be a blessing in disguise for me. My dream has always been vet school, which I don't find out about until June, so this definitely makes things easier. I wanted to apply because I wrote the DAT and I guess I was just keeping my options open, but def not as passionate about dentistry as I should be. Overall though, I'm still proud of myself because I never thought I would get an interview let alone be waitlisted. I'm going to ask where I am on the waitlist just out of curiosity, but I most likely won't be pursuing dental school if there's a chance I get in anyways. Congrats to everyone who got in, and for those who didn't, don't give up, it will happen for you eventually :)

Result: Accepted! 

GPA: not sure how they calculated my GPA (mix of school terms and co-op), but guessing ~95 % best two years

DAT: 23/23/21  (RC/AA/PAT)

ABS: Graduate degree (lots of research, undergrad co-op, etc.), shadowing and volunteering with a student dental clinic ~1 year. Lots of other ECs: clinical volunteering, athletics, and art, for example. 

Interview: Was unsure about my responses because of the online format, but felt confident and handled questions maturely!
