  1. Thanks

    Its on the selection criteria PDF on the website (although it doesn't say anything about CASPer on main page) CASPer has 0% weight in the application, it's for research purposes, it HAS to be done by November 19th 
    It does not replace the interview and USASK still requires DAT

    Given the current pandemic situation, the Canadian Dental Association is not able to safely offer the Manual Dexterity section for the November 2020 DAT. Therefore, the Manual Dexterity section will not be included in the evaluation of applicants for the 2021 admission cycle. Applicants will still need to present a minimum score of 15/30 in each of the Reading & Comprehension and Perceptual Ability sections.  The November 2020 DAT will be considered for Fall 2021 admission.

    That was worded so well. What a good summary of the crap we put up with this year. Absolutely unbelievable.

    Yeah these past 2 days have been hard, just knowing that there is no chance anymore! I'm defiantly looking into other schools to apply to next year, and boosting my DAT for more security. 
    Everyone who was waitlisted, we truly deserve a pat on the back for dealing with all the shit from admissions this year.... having people get in that were below us, lied to, no contact and having our interview opportunity taken away from us. 
    Truly hope that we get what we all deserve next year, whether it be that we get into dentistry or find another program/job that fits us better. 
    I try to think of the positives that we will possibly get the full orientation and classroom experience next year.

    Wow that’s no good. The varying degrees regarding the lack of transparency in admissions processes is unacceptable in my opinion. Students dedicate years of education and hard work prior to applying only to be met with relatively vague admissions information. If one put themselves in the shoes of these students they could easily see how frustrating this is. You can’t help but feel there is little empathy towards prospect students although being empathic is a highly valued personal trait in dentistry.

    Why are the college in general talking to dean and admissions, can you expand?? 
    I do agree we should wait til maybe Wednesday of next week because with Canada Day many did take week off or wednesday-sunday off

    I think for a lot of us even getting admitted the memory will have a lot of anger too with all this bullsh** that we've dealt with!

    ikr!! It literally takes 2 minutes to write an email saying this is going on, keep your patience. Plus the fact that we were all so close to getting in, now seeing other people getting spots that might've been ours, sucks !

    i think they mean as in the spots are already open and they're still pending on sending us the offer. because we now know the waitlist moved 4 spots, and its probably likely that it moved more, they just haven't informed us yet. but this is just an assumption like everything else we've been saying. lol they could not have left us more confused

    i know of at least 3 of us who did (emailed), truly confusing times. There is no reasonable excuse that they can give, because they disclosed their selection criteria this year.

    I'm gonna wait and see what she responds to your guy's emails. If not, I def. encourage us all emailing them so that they realize it's not so easy to just randomly choose people from waitlist. My dad said the same about taking them to court since the only criteria for selection was grades and DAT. They can't even say that some people were chosen b/c of interview skills or anything. lol

    I think the college can really do anything they want sadly, and give us "we cant disclose any information" because at the end of the day they're getting paid no matter what and we play their game. We always will.  I really hope that something comes forth with this though, because it isn't right. We've been in the dark too long tbh! 
    I never fully believed that 2 months went by and barely any movement IP, but it could happen we don't know all the people that applied, all i know is that the UofS Dentistry Class of 2024 has only 23 members and 1 new member joined last week. 
    All the people that emailed merissa just post on the forum what comes from it, and hopefully it's good news

    again though, that's unfair. choosing certain people to keep their college average lower is literally putting our hardwork and efforts to get into this school all in vain. And the whole purpose of having ranks on wait-list is defied.  Sorry but I guess I'm just very mad atm.

    I agree we should be worried, it feels like they’re just picking at random because they now feel bad that they picked the top 32 IP and OOP and IP people are barely declining their spots so they want to give people with lower averages a chance. 
    I hope they realized how much the interview was important and it should of been done virtually, just like medicine. 
    Very disappointing to be on the waitlist this year, to be told you’re top third thinking you could get in quickly and now 2 months Later they’re just picking at random ?!? should of not told us our spots

    I agree they have to stick to what they had said when they cancelled interviews, they can’t be offering randomly when they had a criteria set forth. 
    usually average is 81-95. I don’t know if they’re trying to keep it the same Or what but I hope this is a mistake, because top third would of gotten some offers by now!

    I contacted the admissions office, which I'm assuming may be Merissa. I don't know what the issue is with none of us being notified of any seats being available, as this time last year was much different. But I guess we'll  just have to wait and see.
