  1. Apparently some people on premed canada have the same thing. Its prob a good sign haha
  2. I've pretty much almost completed my application but I'm having some doubts. From the threads here and the information that uofa released on the accepted applicants, I feel they really look for excellence. You either need to have stellar grades or rockstar EC's and I have neither. My gpa is not a 4.0, its not super high. My MCAT is okay, hovering around average. And in terms of my EC's theres nothing revolutionary. I feel with my EC's, I have a number of personal experiences to talk about and they provide a lot of context for them as well as help to show why they're meaningful to me. I also fe
  3. maybe someone from previous years could help answer this. But I believe reading somewhere that they sent casper rejections on September 21st
  4. i wrote mine last year, released it in july and it still hasnt been verified, im guessing they are still working through it
  5. Hey all, I'm putting together my calgary application and have about 7 things for my top ten so far. However, about half are personal experiences. I wanted to include these because I think they would make my extracurriculars look more deliberate but now seeing a lot of the people who got in or got interviews, a lot of them put mostly the EC's for top ten. Any advice for this? I don't want it to look like I barely did any extracurriculars. Also for about 2 of my EC's, I was thinking of using them to make 2 experiences. Again, I'm nervous how this may be taken by the committee. Seems like a lot o
  6. don't have an answer for you but I'm curious to know this as well. I'm applying there
  7. So whats the caliber of ECs at Western? is there a strong emphasis on shadowing, I've only done one hour of shadowing. im asking because i want to apply to ualberta dental school and they are changing their application process to make it more holistic for the fall 2022 intake. this is the first time they are doing something like this btw. i have some extracurriculars but im not sure where i would stand in terms of actually getting in.
  8. Oh i wanted to apply in my 3rd year (next year) but my GPA is like 3.7 or a little lower because I did really shitty this year. They're changing the admissions to allow a more "holistic" process but I wonder how competitive that will make applications. From the sounds of it, the applications will be like medical school
  9. I want to apply to UofA and for next year they are changing their application to basically resemble medical school requirements (GPA, DAT but also EC's, job history, personal experiences, and a CASPER type test) to those of you who have applied to a more holistic dental school, how much harder is it? Personally my GPA is okay but not the best. I think it will be around 3.7ish or a little below. I think I can do okay on the DAT if I study but to be honest my science abilities are not too strong. My EC's are also okay (volunteer with kids since I was 16, part of a STEM nonprofi
