Accepted off waitlist (yesterday at 3:03 PM)

IP

Best 2 yrs: 90.1% (full course load)

DAT: 22RC / 22AA

Graduated from Western in 2015 (Did a 5th year of UG)

Accepting

 

ABS stuffs:

-volunteered in a lab for a couple years during undergrad

-a very small amount of dental shadowing (both general dentist and specialist)

-partnered in creating an online study aid and collaborated with psychology researchers/professors to create a primary study

-lots of sports and sport related training

 

As for my marks, because I took a 5th year before graduating they said they combined two of my years (repeat years) so I'm not sure the exact best two years they used on my application. I'd say somewhere between 88% - 90%.

 

Been years of waiting to be able to make this post. Hang in there everyone and don't give up even if it seems impossible at times. Focus on ECs and doing some unique stuff as it looks like they are trending towards putting a lot more weight on that kind of stuff. Waitlisters, try not to stress out too much if possible, movement will continue right up until the end of August. Start looking into what the next step will be if you don't end up getting a call from Trish this year.

 

If anyone ever has any questions or would like some guidance feel free to PM me and I'll do my best to respond and give some insight to the best of my abilities.

 

 

I'm very happy for you! Congratulations

I am in a bind, I am accepted to another program (non-dent) which I need to confirm soon and on the WL at UWO. Do you think I should call UWO to see the odds of getting off the WL or just focus on plan B?
Thank you

Congratulations on being accepted to the other program, and I am sorry to hear that you are in a bind. From my experience, I don't think you should bother calling them to ask them about your chances of getting off the WL, because they wouldn't disclose that information.

 

Good luck!

Call Trish, explain your situation and see what she says. Doesn't hurt to give them a call. Congrats on the other acceptance!
