Honours for BSc?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I was on Linkedin the other day looking at dental students' profiles (lol) and I actually noticed that most, if not all of them did an honours bachelors degree before getting into dental school (mostly UofT dent). I'm not an honours student (currently doing a BSc specialization in behavioural neurosciences). Would it be an advantage when appplying to dent? Did people got accepted into dentistry without honours?

Just an fyi, but some schools (like uoft) offer Honours Bachelor of Science (HBSc) but this has nothing to do with having completed an honours program (like a final year thesis), nor have achieved great academic achievement. Basically everyone gets that designation even BAs. 

Correction: to get HBSc or HBA at uoft, you need to have a cGPA of 1.85/4.0 or greater (which translates to around a C-)

Yes it does if you have completed an honours project, but it is not the be all and end all. It's not an issue if you have good grades regardless.
