  1. https://medicine.dal.ca/departments/core-units/admissions/admissions/place-of-residence.html For the purpose of applying to Dalhousie Medical School, you are considered a resident of a Maritime Province if you meet the following: You are a Canadian citizen or a Canadian Permanent Resident AND you meet the criteria in 1 of the 4 categories below: 1. You are an independent student** (see definition below) and have resided continuously in a Maritime province for one period of twelve consecutive months immediately prior to the application submission deadline (Section 2). This exc
  2. Your posted stats are excellent, but unfortunately, the OOP seats are few and the applications are many.
  3. Also interesting is that the affirmative action policy page is no longer active on the Dal website, so maybe they are changing their approach?
  4. 110. The size could increase depending on the number of qualified indigenous Maritimers or black Nova Scotian applicants.
  5. Class of 2022: Class stats Average GPA: 3.8 Average MCAT: 509 Average age: 24 Age range: 21-34 Number of females: 61 (54%) Number of males: 51 (45%)
  6. Class size can also fluctuate depending on the number of qualified African-Nova Scotian or Indigenous applicants. Their applications are not counted against the class limit and therefore can push numbers higher, potentially.
  7. Variation in class size is likely caused by the number of qualified indigenous and African Nova Scotian applicants. While these applicants are subject to the same standards for entry as all the other applicants, they are not ranked against the other applicants. "Admission prerequisites are required for all applicants. However, applicants who apply under the Affirmative Action Statement are considered on the basis of their qualifications for the study of medicine rather than in relation to other candidates."

  8. They don't publish this information. The 7 people who responded to this poll might be the closest indicator you are going to get. 2 people with scores in the 69 - 69.9 range (coinciding with the poll results) have posted that they have received an offer off the wait list. The next potential movement of the list will probably be in May when the other schools start making their offers. Good luck.
  9. It seems the score they give you is not what they use to determine the placing on the wait list. There has been some talk of z-scores, but that's beyond my abilities to comprehend.
  10. Not for each province. One wait list each for NB, PEI, NS then one for everyone else.
  11. Congratulations! You should update the 'Accepted/Rejected/Deferred/Waitlisted for Current Applicants' thread with your stats for future generations... Is this your first attempt?
  12. The silence here is killing me. Does anyone have any insight as to when the offers /rejections will be coming out for the NB / PEI seats? I know it's historically been late March and the website says April.. Just wondering if someone knows someone who knows someone...
  13. There are 30 Dal seats in Saint John and 10 seats at MUN (St. John's) for NBers (NB Population 770k) There are 60 seats at MUN for NFLD students (NFLD population 525k)
