It might be a bit early but I thought it could be a good idea to start a thread for those applying for the Irish Schools - 2020. We should be hearing from them between mid-February and beginning of

I ultimately decided to accept the offer! I paid the deposit today!

Thanks for making the thread! I applied, too. Best of luck

Hey Guys I am planning on applying next year but I wanted to run my "CV" by you guys to see what my chances are. **Constructive criticism welcomed**

 

What do you guys think of my chances of getting in:

- Done University

- Major: Neuroscience, Minor: Spanish

- 4 years of Academic Neuroscience research, some multi-university/ national cooperative projects

- TA for spanish

- Research assistant job for Neuroscience project

- GPA: 3.29

- International Medical outreach volunteer experienceÂ

- Operation smile ambassador for my university

 

I know my GPA is killing me but I wanted to know your honest opinion on the chances I would have weighing in my other traits. my plan for this year is to take open study courses to increase my GPA and see if any of my local doctors/dentists are doing any research projects I can jump on to

Irish schools are **very** GPA-heavy. I would recommend doing a post-bacc or master's degree to up your GPA a little; I would aim for a 3.50 at least before applying.

 

Good luck

Just wondering as to why you withdrew your spot if you don't mind answering that :) ?

Hey, thank you for this update! I'm curious to know why you dropped your spot at UCC? 

Hey! It's really just personal preference. I'd rather go to dental school here in Canada.

How did TCD contact you? Through atlantic bridge or on their own? Also just wondering if you made any updates to your application in the last 1-2 months? 

I got an email from the admissions officer at Atlantic bridge (Vi Doan). I haven’t made any updates to my application at all, I just submitted my applications on the last day tbh and haven’t done anything else after that. This was the first time I had received any sort of update from them.

I have heard back from TCD today and was placed on a “short waitlist” with a “very good likelihood of a place becoming available”, however I will be withdrawing this waitlist offer so there is still hope guys!! This means there is still lots of movement :)

Hey, I got the same email! What do you think the chances of me getting off the waitlist and getting an offer are?

Thank you!

got a rejection from Trinity Dublin this week, still haven't officially heard from the other two I applied to, but i'm pretty sure they already sent their offers a few months ago anyways.

I applied back in April I believe and COVID annihilated my application cause my transcript was stuck in the mail, but I managed to resolve it. Debating on if I should even bother applying again. I'll be writing the DAT in november to compensate for my GPA,.. see what happens 

Anyone else hear back from them?

I’m just telling it how it is. There’s no point in me saying “yeah go ahead and apply again”, when your GPA clearly isn’t up to par. It’s well-known that dental schools consider academic achievements over all else. As I said before, I would recommend completing a continuing education degree (Masters etc.) to up your GPA.
