I would like to know which years will be considered when I apply since my degree is 5 yrs. Also, i know my GPA is not competitive and even if I get a 4 in every single course the years after, my cgpa will only go up to 3.5. If i do really really good on the DAT, will t

  8. Hello, I am currently in first year Life Sci at UTM. I started with 5.0 credits, however, dropped Physics (136/137) because I was under a lot of stress and pressure at the beginning which led to my illness. For medical schools, Would they count my 4.0 credits a full load ? What if I am taking the one credit this summer ? Thank you very much

Pick an easy university like YORK to get a high GPA 2. Pick the university that has the dental school you want because they pick their students first then other universities and other opinions that did not seem right, So I am interested in studying dentistry at UofT, but I know that I need to determine my undergrad first An update, I have b
