  1. You are setting yourself up for a lot of anxiety in regards to your grades if you think having 3.9 in one course is bad... speaking from experience. A 3.9 in one class will definitely not decrease your chances of getting into dental school. I had a pretty low GPA (cGPA was around 3.2 and wGPA around 3.9) and got accepted this year, so don’t lose hope. And dropping a course at this point in the semester, especially because you are expecting a 3.9, is a very bad idea! Keep working hard! The semester is almost over
  2. I was accepted this year at Dal without shadowing experience and none of my ECs were related to dentistry!
  3. Do the schools you're applying to accept the February DAT?
  4. I started carving the last week of September, did one each Wednesday and Saturday until the week before the test where I did one every other day, if I remember correctly.
  5. I only bought soaps from the CDA website (2 packs of 6 soaps). By the time I found out about the datcarvingsoap website, they were sold out (for a few weeks so if you want some from this website, I suggest you buy them sooner rather than later) ... from what I've heard, the test soap texture is closer to the datcarvingsoap texture (please correct me if I'm wrong). As for how many soaps ... as I mentioned, I only had 12 soaps to practice on and I wish I would have bought more, at least another pack.
  6. Shadowing is not necessary for most, if not all, schools (correct me if I'm wrong, but I've not seen it be necessary for any schools that I've looked into). I was accepted at Dal this year with zero shadowing.
  7. Just a little correction for uOttawa. They changed the GPA calculation for next cycle. They will still use your last 3 years of full-time study but they will use the cGPA instead of a wGPA. They will NOT do x3, x2, x1 anymore. Also, for the French Quebec universities, they unfortunately count ALL your undergraduate grades, including repeated courses and summer courses.
  8. I would also read up on Western's requirements because they require that you take courses that correspond to your year of study (3rd year courses in year 3, ...). It is also usually not recommended to repeat courses because a lot of universities will use both grades.
  9. Application for the credit card or for the LOC? My advisor said the application has to be finalized before July 1st to qualify
  10. Sure, there are some people who manage to get in with a low GPA, I'll give you that. However, in your case, you can basically count out McMaster, NOSM, Dalhousie and Memorial from your list because of your geographical status. I think your best bet would be BC since you are IP, but you would need to work on your ECs. Btw, for Dal .... Residents of all other Canadian provinces and territories Minimum of 3.7 on a 4.0 scale in each year assessed. The minimum GPA requirement must be met in EACH year (with 30 credit hours) being assessed to be considered for admission.
  11. I live in NB so my (very limited) knowledge of job searching wouldn't really apply to such big cities lol
  12. Where (province, big vs small city) do you plan on working?
