  1. For Syd you are pretty competitive since they look mostly at GPA I believe! Good luck this cycle.
  2. It is very hard to say right now but everything changes on a day to day basis. It will be their summer in January so hopefully COVID-19 cases decrease a little and they open their borders up. It is unfortunate that Sydney did not transition to online for international students.
  3. We have a Facebook group for Australian applicants in the 2021 intake cycle. Message me and I will add you to it.
  4. I was accepted to Melbourne this cycle with 3.93 (weighted 3 years) and a 23 AA DAT. -to note based on what you said, they would just do your last 3 years doesn't matter the second year courses you took in last year I also interviewed at UWO with a 3.98; however, they are more holistic and you need to have a good personal statement. Hope this helps you and future applicants.
  5. Fast block of polyspermy for sea urchins. You will not find this on any resource for the DAT. This is knowledge from taking Developmental Biology courses in university.
  6. I wrote Casper twice now, it is straight forward. Just do the two practice tests on the Casper website and write down some personal experiences you can use for certain traits. Most of the questions are situational based anyways and just ask for your advice. We have a Facebook group for Aus dental applicants for 2021 intake. PM me if you want to join.
  7. Australia has its benefits. I heard from various peers you get way more clinical experience than uoft/western, which I prefer. Yes it is about 100-150k more, but in my position, I would rather get into a dental school as soon as I can (January 2021) instead of waiting another year because I have a practice set up for me when I am done the 4 years.
  8. Your GPA is fine. If you are writing the DAT for first time do your best to make sure your RC is above the minimum (18). To do decent on the DAT (20+), 2-3 months is all you need it is not a hard test you just have to know as much as you can and practice. My advice to you is that you should focus on yourself and don't worry about other people's stats or extracurriculars. I know people with high gpa/DATs that didn't even get to interview stage. The most important thing is meeting the minimum requirements and writing a good personal statement / answering the sketch questions well. If you wa
  9. My agpa for Melbourne is 3.92 and 22.5 for the 4 sections, so thats great to hear. Can anyone comment about UWA stats for offers?
  10. Can anyone comment on their stats for getting into Melbourne, UWA, or USyd? Would be nice to use as a reference. They are not doing interviews this year because of COVID-19 but UWA has a CASPER component that only select candidates received.
  11. Hey I got the invite to. The times do suck! Mines at 8PM. Other one was 5AM. My choices in preference are UWA > Melbourne > Syd.
  12. I am down to make a Facebook group. Did anyone else receive an e-mail from UWA regarding CASPer and no interviews?
