I am a Canadian. I applied to two dental schools and interviewed at both. I think I will hear from them in a month or two. BTW, my GPA was like 3.7 and my DAT is above 20 across the boards except PAT where I got 19.
I'm from Canada and applied to alot of US schools this year. So far, I've been accepted at tufts, nyu and boston; interview invites to temple and usc. I haven't heard back from any others. My cumulative GPA is 3.42, Academic average is 19.
I was interviewed last year at u of t and at Western, but was ultimately waitlisted. Hopefully i get in this year.
I'm not Canadian either, but I have seen Strange Brew so I feel that I have a pretty thorough grasp of the Canadian psyche. And I agree with Desi; state schools are a poor bet. Unless your stats are golden, it's prolly not worth the time and money spent interviewing. Stick with the private schools.
