  1. You can't begin to imagine my elation to see that Fred VanVleet's Tooth responded to my thread Thank you so much for responding to my post and your help in this forum in general!!
  2. I'm not too sure if I should post this into the "What are my chances/Should I retake the DAT" thread, but it seems to have died down a bit a few years ago, so I figured my best bet would be to post on here. Could someone let me know whether or not the following stats would make me competitive for U of T, or if I should rewrite the DAT? My GPA is 3.97 and my DAT scores are: RC - 21, Bio - 21, Chem - 22, PAT - 21 (June DAT) I'm not sure how this score stacks up against previous years in terms of percentile, but 21 is about 78-83% percentile for each section. I'm not sure if I sh
  3. Hey guys, Just a quick question! Why is it that when people ask for their chances of admission, instead of reporting the percentile associated with their scores for that test session, they simply just say the score? For example, a score of 21 may be 84th percentile for one test session, but 78th percentile for another? So wouldn't it make more sense to talk about the percentile associated with the score obtained? Is it because schools look just at the scores and not the percentile? I'm a bit confused - if anyone could offer some insight, that'd be greatly appreciated. Thank you so
  4. Yes, I got it too!! No change in date nor time nor location, and asks for a response by May 3. At the top of the email it was dated April 29. Is this just a confirmation email?
  5. Hey all, I saw in a different thread that interview invites for those who applied to U of T recently went out!! Congratulations! Just a quick question - would you all happen to know winter 2020 grades were used in the calculation? Thank you so much!
  6. Thank you for your insight!!! It's really helping me destress. Thank you
  7. That's very good to know! Although it is vague and allows for many ways to tackle this question, it's also much more intimidating I guess. Thank you for your help.
  8. Thank you so much for your response! This is very encouraging and makes me feel slightly better. I'm already in third year and I can't help but feel that my ECs are a little bit lacking. Thank you.
  9. I've heard that ECs are not really looked at by U of T, but to what degree? I have some community volunteering and am an executive on some clubs, but I have no research nor publications. I don't know what the application process for U of T is like. If their personal essays ask what you've done during undergrad, doesn't that technically mean they count ECs? Do they ask about shadowing? Or, are these all helpful for you at the interview stage? This seems like such an obtuse question but I could really use some guidance.
  10. Hey all, I was wondering if there has been any recent updates regarding whether U of T Dentistry will be using Winter 2020 grades as part of the GPA calculation? As well, does anyone know whether the decision made for U of T dentistry be the same as U of T med or are the two completely separate? Stay safe!
  11. Thank you Castellar24! It's reassuring to hear it from someone else. You're right - just got to keep my head in the game and hope for the best!
  12. Hey all, I'm looking to apply to U of T dentistry. I understand that U of T is able to drop an applicant's lowest year GPA provided that it is not their most recent year. My question is, my first year marks were not great at all, while my second year marks were high. Despite U of T saying they'll drop the lowest year (aka my first year), I can't help but have a fear that my first year GPA will affect my chances. I guess my question is, has anyone been admitted with a high GPA after their lowest year was dropped, despite that lowest year being quite low? I've looked everywhere b
