  1. congrats to everyone getting invited! Current words of advice from a student currently in the DDS program at U of T: enjoy the interview prep! It's an opportunity to not only prepare for the interview, but to also develop critical thinking skills. The more you practise, the faster you will get at formulating well thought responses. Be authentic. During your practise sessions, you might have thoughts about "changing your personality style," but please don't fall into that trap because it will take the focus away from you being able to assess the question and formulate a strong response.

  2. Hey all! Just feeling a little curious on the mentioned topic. For those who are now working, did you enjoy dental school more or do you enjoy working more?
  3. In which summers do most Canadian dental students write their American board exams if they’re planning to write both the American and Canadian board exams?
  4. Hey upper years. Which zip house do you recommend joining in?? I think we need to decide by tomorrow...
  5. Hi all, I'll be going into my first year at u of t dental and was emailed information about getting an ODA membership for $220. For those who have had more experience throughout dental school in Ontario, how useful really is the ODA membership?
  6. Has anyone her leveraged some of their LOC money to make profit? If so, which investment opportunities did you pursue?
  7. I've been reading a lot online lately about how many of the patients attending dentists' offices suffer from psychiatric disorders. That said, it seems intuitive that dentists should receive some training/education in psychiatric disorders. Doing so could make dental appointments more efficient in many ways and can benefit the patients as well (i.e. if dentists recognize that someone's pain is simply imagine as opposed to something tangible, they could save themselves the time of having to investigate). That said, are we taught psychiatric disorders in relation to dentistry in some of ou
  8. do the scotia banks in Mississauga still do prime -0.5?
  9. Okay this confuses me a lot. Everyone here is saying be very hard working and kind. But as a first year, I always thought that everyone going into clerkship would try their best to exemplify those skills. I would expect that everyone coming in has the social IQ not to be rude, or not respect the hierarchy, and that if they had the work ethic to get into med school, they should demonstrate that work ethic in clerkship. But a lot of people have been telling me the opposite - that not as many people as you think are actually hard working. Can anyone explain that to me please?
  10. For u of t, the sessional dates chart shows that the summer break is roughly 4 months (the same as with uni). If you're wanting to specialize in, for example, orthodontics, what would you recommend doing during the summers to improve your chances?
  11. Currently selling my Princeton review mcat 2015 books. Please do keep in mind that the questions at the end of each chapter have been answered, so you would rely on the science workbook and cars workbooks for your practise, both of which I have (as soft copies) This deal also includes the purple official guide book. I also have a huge collection of soft copy files for the mcat, many of which are for the 2015 mcat which I purchased separately (I.e. EK101 biology 1, EK101 physics, EK101 CARS workbook). I live in Mississauga, so if you're interested in the materials (I'm selling everything for $
  12. Hey I just have to get better at studying the management plan/treatment for a lot of the conditions. That seems to be my issue. I guess it is the clincial reasoning I should work on. But do you have any comments regarding my question of Clerkship? Like how do they assess performance on clerkship.
