Is it weird for the waitlist to have moved only 2 or 3 spots by now? Can any dental students comment on when waitlist movement happened in the year that they applied? Was it this slow for you guys too or was there more movement by now?

I think the deposit is due June 1st so I would expect some movement after that. Last year, it moved 3 spots after the deposit deadline and I got in during that time! Although, it does tend to get slow after that.

the early UofT offers resulted in some candidates cancelling their interviews at Schulich (i.e. the candidates that got UofT offers), meaning there is a stronger likelihood that there is less waitlist movement this year because there could be fewer candidates declining Schulich for UofT dental (since some of those accepted at UofT already cancelled their Schulich interview). 

hopefully the schulich administration factored that into consideration for their HWL...

Yeah the UofT thing is what I'm worried about :/ 

but like @Zaandrei. said, I doubt they would have factored that in :(

I finally got the call from Western yesterday!!!!! I was on high waitlist!!! Ahhhhh!! I am so happy. 

Thats amazing! congrats! 

Just out of curiosity, did your waitlist letter have the HWL wording? If you dont mind me asking, what did your letter say? Just wanna get myself in check so I don't get my hopes too high lol.

Thank you! Yes I did. Here you go:

Is anyone living in the Jacksway Apartments? How far is it from Dental buildings? Is it a good place to live?

A bunch of dental students live there actually! I'd say it's about a 5-10 minute bus ride from the dental school. Single apartments are quite a rarity, as not many people let go of them. If you get an upgraded unit, they're quite nice actually and are within a minute walk from a large mall and commercial area.

so i'm guessing everyone paid the deposit, has anyone contacted admissions to confirm?
if that's the case, us HWL-ers don't have much hope left :/

this time last year, there was more movement after the deposit date, so i'm guessing either the people who were contacted and pulled off HWL after the deposit date didn't post about it and are still deciding (I think they get a few days)

or, all deposits are paid and class is full

When do you start seeing patients? In 2nd year? 

At schulich, do you get to shadow upper years in the clinic in D1? 

1) I think 2nd year 2nd term you see your first patient (someone correct me if i'm wrong)

2) Yes you shadow/assist upper years in main clinic, pediatrics or Oral Surg from February to May in first year.

1) You don't get your own patients in 2nd year; unless they're changing it up... :)

2) that's right; a lot more in 2nd year

 

 

Thank you for your reply! Also have 3rd or 4th years experienced any problems regarding chairs ? And, do you need to find your own patients or do they get assigned?

Yes. Large issues with booking appointments and availability of covering instructors... but we're doing fine still. Just transitioned over to a digital system and it's been rough, but a few weeks after the initial transition and things are already looking better.

The school provides patients - pretty standard I believe across most (if not all) universities.

End of second year, you get 1 paeds case. I think that's what Incisor94 was referring to

Are there still people on the high waitlist that are waiting? 

I heard a few of my friends on the waitlist saying schulich only moved 8-9 spots so far. But yes I know 4 people on the HWL at schulich.
