  1. I can vouch for this! I was waitlisted as well last year and recieved an offer this year! Don't sit by your phone all summer, start analyzing yourself and see where you need to improve. Continue shadowing and push forward. I think the best way to approach it is "hope for the best plan for the worst". Do some ECs, enjoy your summer and if the phone call comes great! But if it doesn't don't get bogged down. A gap year isn't too bad and you'll learn a lot and eventually get in! Good luck!
  2. They consider academic trends , graduate degree bonus points and possibly other factors we may not know about. Not exactly sure how they rank applicants but I agree, being waitlisted is the worst feeling for UWO. Basically puts your life on hold while you wait
  3. 96 plus the additional IDAP students making it basically 120. Not sure how much that factors in to the clinical experience where there is so much competition for cases in clinic etc.
  4. Let's hope invites come out early with waitlist positions given!
  5. It's not difficult at all..just go over the CD once and you'll be more than fine.
  6. I applied last year and got accepted to the program as well. I decided against going for a few reasons but mainly since it would be tougher to specialize in Canada and the States doesn't consider it equivalent. I think it's better to apply in Canada multiple times than jumping ship abroad if you can bring up your DAT score and have a good GPA. In regards to the accreditation I think someone mentioned that it will get renewed and there shouldn't be any issues for future grads enrolled or planning to enroll this year.
  7. Me too..waitlisted and no call. From what I know, there are at least 25 people who interviewed last year and have interviews again (includes waitlisted and rejected).
  8. Just out of curiosity, what made you consider medicine after a semester in D1? Is dentistry not a right fit or some personal reason? You can PM me if you don't want to answer it here, I'm just curious since you were pretty excited to go to UofT for dent and I'm applying to dentistry again and I don't want to realize something after.
  9. If the past two years are any indication (as well as the stated message on their website), they should be out on March 1st (one month before interview weekend).
  10. Doesn't hurt to try but I think they'll tell you to call after interview invites are out.
  11. If the cutoff is indeed 19 RC, then they wouldn't read the ABS/PS of people with 18 RC.
  12. They only look at the number. Highly doubt that it would go up. They want a sizeable pool of applicants to review for ABS/PS and then select 240 to interview.
  13. The cutoff last year was indeed 18 but it should be the same this year. More so, the ABS will probably factor in.
  14. I think the website states its Feb 20 as the target date for invitation to the MMI?
  15. New rules, new admin staff, new interview style...what could possibly be next?
  16. You were right.... Note: Effective the 2017-18 application cycle for entry in September 2018 all sections of the DAT test may be considered in the selection process with the exception of the Manual Dexterity section.
  17. I think the email will be coming soon and they didn't upload the current percentiles chart (Feb. 2016 was there) so I think they want to correct it and send out an email for people to check their scores. It's also possible that something went wrong on their end and we weren't supposed to view the scores until they've been "officially" released. All speculation at this point...CDA send that email!
  18. I applied last cycle with a cGPA of 3.74 and I got accepted to both the Irish schools (don't require DAT scores). You can apply with a low GPA and have a good shot, good luck!
  19. It should be out within the next two weeks, not too far away now!
  20. That section is for them to know how many transcripts to expect. Your ECs should be describe in the abs don't really worry about that section
  21. UWO doesn't have a gpa cutoff anymore but having an 88% still means you have a good gpa (even with the penalty of not taking a full course load). You'll have to write the physiology exam if you don't have the prereq for it but it's not that bad. I'm pretty sure you'll land an interview though and after that, just gotta prep for it!
  22. Do you have research? It would definitely help your app!
  23. Yeah if you could get experience why not? Not only will it help in your application, it will help with knowing if this career is right for you. You have great stats, hope the DAT went well!
  24. Yeah you have a chance. Shadowing is just one component of the Abs. You got an interview for med so you must have volunteering experience, research and other things. On top of it, is your gpa 93% for best two years or cumulative? Having a high gpa will help you too.
