Dalhousie Class of 2024 - Accepted/Waitlisted/Rejected


Recommended Posts

I thought we could maybe share our results/stats here for future reference. There’s not a lot of information out there for Dal DDS and I know it would have helped me a lot when I first started looking into Dal. I made a template based on the others on this forum. Please feel free to add any information you think would be helpful for others :)

 

Result:

IP (Atlantic Provinces)/OOP/International:

wGPA (Last 60 cr):

Prereq GPA (Higher sciences):

--------------------------

I guess I'll start first!

Result: Accepted!!!! :D

IP (Atlantic Provinces)/OOP/International: IP (NB)

wGPA (Last 60 cr): Around 4.05/4.30 (I repeated courses during my last two years and they take the average of the 2 courses)

Prereq GPA (Higher sciences): Depends on how they calculated it, either 4.15 or 4.18/4.30

DAT (Bio/Chem/PAT/RC/MDT): 21/20/22/22/23

Interview: I felt like I reaaaally messed up 2 questions, did great on 1 or 2 and ok on the rest. Just goes to show that you're not the best at judging your own performance.

Comments: Sooo excited to meet everyone!! :)

Did she reply? Good luck! I know a lot of people get off the wait list so there’s hope :)

does anyone know anything regarding international students? My friend is waiting to hear back, but doesn’t have an account!

Do you know how many people get off the waitlist usually? 

I have a friend from the States who interviewed the last week of May and they told her she would know mid-June. I'm guessing this week.

Hey! Sorry for the late response. Yes she did reply but there’s about 10-15 people on the waitlist and she said we can expect some movement after June 18th. Not sure about international students tho!
