GPA or numerical average?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I was just looking at UWO's admissions stats (http://www.schulich.uwo.ca/dentistry/docs/Statistics-Class2011.htm) and I have a few questions...


Do you they look at OMSAS GPA or just numerical average? What about U of T? I mean on the U of T website it says to be considered competitive you need "80% average or 3.7 GPA" but those are 2 TOTALLY different things... at least for me my cumulative GPA is lower than 3.7 but my cumulative average is over 85.


Also, do they look at extracurriculars/volunteer work as specifically as med schools do? I mean, I know it's great to be well rounded and I have been in my life so far, but is as much emphasis put on it or is it mainly just grades and DAT that get you in?


What's considered a "good" DAT score? 20 in each section? Is the DAT a scaled test?


Ahhh I know it's a lot of questions, but I tried looking on all the school's websites and they're sooo vague. :confused:
