    DentHope2021 got a reaction from Dentiste in Schulich Dentistry Class Of 2021 Accepted/waitlisted/rejected   
    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!

    As someone who was on the waitlist last year, my biggest piece of advice is to just keep hope, but act as if you're rejected. Channel that frustration into strengthening your application and do all you can to really maximize your chances next year. Stay busy and time will fly, I promise that.

    Probably 240-250 invites. 56 accepted, I'd say 80 waitlisted, and the rest rejected. I think last year 38 people got in off the waitlist, which I was not one of unfortunately lmao

    DentHope2021 reacted to Waves in Has Anyone Gotten An Interview In Recent Years At Uwo With An 18 Rc Score?   
    I think the cutoff might be lower this year since the most recent DAT (and therefore presumably the one most people will be applying with) seemed to have a difficult RC section with not many people achieving very high scores compared to previous years.

    NO career provides a 'guaranteed' path to success anymore. I'm so sick of all these doom and gloom posts regarding dentistry. End of the day, dentistry is an extremely vast field that provides a ton of opportunities for success. Are you guaranteed a million dollar salary? Of course not, but that doesn't mean that you still won't be making more than 99% of the population. Work your *** off, expect nothing, and build the life you want. The sense of entitlement is crazy nowadays, just because you're a dentist doesn't mean you can stop working hard.

    One piece of advice, don't do your second degree at UofT. Go to Ryerson or York where you can get 4.0/A+ easier.

    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

    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!

    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!

    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.

    Mainly since people might have went in thinking search and destroy and questions would be in order. With only 50 min, people could be thrown off by seeing it not in order and having inference questions. Also, seeing that you did the mcat verbal section, this must have been easy

    DentHope2021 got a reaction from UFT2021 in Should I Apply To Saskatchewan As Well?   
    You'll get interviews from UWO and UofT. USask uses a different scale to calculate your percentage if you have letter grades so it's more than 92.1%. You'll get interviews from everywhere basically but McGill is really unknown. I think they look for OOP people with french connections and lots of ECs/sports. Wouldn't bank on it but never know! Did you apply to UBC? You might have a shot there too.
