Pre-Health (Field Undecided)
I'm currently having a hard time deciding between two Canadian dental schools (University of Toronto vs Western Ontario). I'm not sure if I want to specialize, but I definitely would want to keep that option open. Western ranks students while U of t does not. Could anyone provide some insight into which system would be more helpful for applying to specialization programs?

This probably should be under X vs Y school for a better answer because I am not familiar with either of those schools. But everything I have seen for specializing and ranking is that they do not correlate. Great schools don't do rankings and have amazing specialization rates (ex Columbia). Some schools even have no ranks and P/NC and still have a high specialization rate. Just get more info about each school and see which produces more specialists, that would probably be your best bet.
