  1. Hey, Just spoke to TD today (yet to speak with Scotiabank etc.) and they are stating that I'd most likely require a cosigner for the professional student line of credit (PSLOC). I am a Canadian attending a Canadian school, and from what I've heard, we usually do not require cosigners to take out this line of credit. They said that due to a lack of income during full time studies, many students will require a cosigner to be eligible for the PSLOC. Are there any current dental students that can shed some light on this? Were you able to take out a PSLOC even though you didn't have a ste
  2. Yeah, I've just started to use sdn - great resource for omfs-related info. I would have to agree - from what I see, the scope in the US seems to be far more advanced, when the time comes - that will play a great factor towards my final decision. thank you again for being so helpful!
  3. Hey guys, I've created a discord channel for students to freely talk about the application process to Canadian and US-based schools! https://discord.gg/tKMqv6r53R Best!
  4. Hello, Incoming DDS1 at a Canadian school this September. I'm entering dental school with the aspects of practicing general dentistry, but I'd be kidding myself if I didn't say OMFS and perio aren't attracting my attention. I was just wondering how difficult it is for a Canadian to gain OMFS residency at a US school. Also - does the school you go to determine the scope of your OMFS practice? I tend to see graduates from UAB performing very intense procedures, not sure if this is a coincidence or a result of that specific program. Thank you
  5. Resources I used: Chad videos, DAT crusher (includes ferallis notes), PAT booster, DAT destroyer (useless imo), DAT ready PAT booklet. For PAT, I would say 2 hours a day of each section for about 3-4 weeks is enough (this seemed to be enough time for me + 2 other people) For BIO/CHM, it depends on your background. I needed around 1.5 months ~4 hours every weekday to make notes and do enough practice problems/tests. For RC, I spent around 3-4 days searching different methods (vanilla, S&D, hybrid) and did 3-4 RC tests using the method that best suited me. I want to emp
  6. Hey! Its hard to objectively tell you if it was hard or easy as they don't release our marks. That said - the questions felt common sensical and I tried my best to answer all of them in an empathetic and non-biased manner. I think if you can apply empathy, non-judgement and solution based thinking to every prompt, you should do just fine! If you're still concerned, try reading BeMos CASPr preparation book - they answer pretty much any insecurities students may have.
  7. Hey is there a fb groupchat for those accepted/waitlist?

  9. I wonder how many people were invited this year. With it being online, I wonder if they got more applications, and sent out more invites as a result. Could someone potentially get this information?
