  1. I have a question about core gpa calculations,,,,, So when they determine your core gpa for the interview, how do they do that if you are still in biochemistry in the winter term of the year you are applying? Also what grade would you put in the core course grade section in the application?
  2. I am a future applicant and I just wanna say, I wish you guys ALL THE BEST OF LUCKKK!!!! You got this !!!!!
  3. This may not be true but I've heard that the CDA may consider having DAT exams at different times of the year(sorta like the US but not quite) instead of having a fixed date that happens twice a year (in November & February). But as I said, I may be completely wrong. Im also waiting for the next DAT so we'll see when we can take it :))
  4. What would be the average acceptance gpa and dat score for OOP applicants?
  5. were the people who got the interview contacted via school email? and did you have to call in to book your time?(that's what I heard from previous years haha)
  6. i did not apply this cycle but what was the core gpa cut off for interview this year? i believe it was 3.7 last year
  7. If you are writing the Canadian dat, then Crusher is recommended since it represents the canadian dat better than the bootcamp. Personally I prepared with datcrusher and kaplan books.
  8. For example, (2 x average of the core courses) means the core courses GPA. So at university of manitoba, A+=4.5 A=4.0 B+=3.5 B=3.0 ,and so on. If you search umanitoba gpa calculator, you will be able to enter in your letter grades and it'll spit out your gpa in numbers so that way you'd be able to determine your gpa!
  9. If you have 2 years of pre-dental studies, you calculate: (2 x average of the CORE courses) + (1 x average on lowest year out of the two) + (3 x average on best year) divided by 6 will give you your agpa for 2 years of studies. If you have 3 or more years of pre-dental studies, you calculate: (2 x average of the CORE courses) + (0 x average on lowest year) + (3 x average on best year) + (1 x remaining full academic year) divided by 6 (or 7,8, etc) Core courses mean the 5 sciences umanitoba asks for (Bio,chem,phys,orgo,biochem) I hope this makes sense!!
  10. Hello, On the umanitoba dentistry bulletin, it says "In the past three years, the minimum core course averages for Manitoba applicants were: 3.60 (2019) 3.60 (2018) 3.60 (2017)" So does the gpa indicated above mean 3.6 was the average gpa of all the applicants? If not, could somebody please help me understand how they determined the cut-offs for each year? Thank you in advance!!
