  2. Hi dk1256, UBC dentistry admission procedure is here: https://www.dentistry.ubc.ca/dmd/dmd-admission-procedures/ From my understanding, GPA is calculated from all of your undergraduate courses, and they drop your worst year as well (with at least 24 credits). To assess applicants, I think it is a combination of GPA, DAT, and Casper. Extracurriculars related to dental is not necessary for your applications, but shadowing a dentist will allow you to assess better if you like the dental profession. Best of luck on your DAT!
  3. Hi, I am also in your situation. I have another interview on Feb 9th. I would also be interested in changing dates if anyone is interested.
  4. Same question here! Would appreciate hearing some of your stories.
  5. Thank you, that was very heartwarming to read. Like you, I also struggled to get a minimum score in CARS for two application cycles. I know the joy of finally having the chance to get the full file review.

  7. Wishing everyone the best of luck! We made it this far! It's a matter of a couple more hours. I think we all should take a minute and be proud of ourselves for making it this far! The rest is out of our control I guess.
  8. Hi everyone, I was thinking if we need to explicitly name the clusters in our essays, or is it sufficient to describe our tasks and achievements and leave it up to the reader to identify which clusters the activities cover?
  9. Hi everyone, I was thinking if we also have to include the name of the conferences we presented at. Since the space is so limited, I didn't have any room to include that. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
