    it seems like all of us canadians had an interview in case. I know that there are 2 canadians in class of 2009. I guess only one or two of us will be chosen. I dont' want to go there though. Where else did other canadians have their interviews. I guess we all are in competition with each other for the 1 or 2 canadian spots that they usually have in each university. Should we stick together or hate each other??

    2-3 canadian spots???? I dont think it works this way. Private schools do not care if you are from Canada or US.

    I guess it does actually. THe person to interviewed me in case told me that they try to limit the incoming international students to usually around 3-4 students. WHen i asked him, how many are usually candians. He said around 1 or 2 but never more than that. That was according to him, so I guess i"m using only one source to say this. But if you actually do look at some of the stats for some private universities, they only take 2 or 3 international students in the upcoming class. THey take a lot of out of state students but not many out of country students. Anyways, I hope that we all get in wherever we want. I don't think that there are many of us, so maybe we'll be able to take up the 1 or 2 spots in all the private universities.
    Take it easy eh.

    I think thats just Case's policy though....other Canadian friendly schools such as BU, Tufts and NYU have plenty of Canadians in their class....no need to worry.

    However, if you guys have already interviewed at Case, congrats, because that usually means an acceptance....and Case Western seems like an AMAZINGGGG school! I dont think you'd regret going there at all.

    I dont think Canadians are considered international student. I just hate Case policies, I would only go there if Case is the only school I get accepted at.

    just out of curiosity...

    what are your motivations for attending dental school in the US instead of Canada? I don't know anything about dental schools in canda but i assume they are on par with those in the US.

    I didnt write Canadian DAT. I am not a Bio major and my chances of getting in at a Canadian Universities is slim to none. I really does not matter where I get in. I would go anywhere in States to study.

    The schools in Canada are really good but hard to get into. Let's put it like this, if you don't have a 3.7 GPA, good luck getting an interview!

    It's not really that bad. Some Canadian dental schools take best 3 years (90 credits) and some take best 2 years (60 credits).

    Plus, there's a lot less applicants applying to each school.

    Hey guys, fellow canadian here...I interviewed at temple on oct 13th and just found out my application is still under review! I couldnt believe it, but then again brian did say we were the 256th group of people interviewing that week and since they sent out 200 acceptances there's a chance that they didnt even review the people past 200....Oh well I just have to wait for my other interviews in january..

    I have an interview on Jan 31st at Temple. I dont think I have a chance then as they are already sending out 200 acceptances. How many people do they interview in one group? I think they interview three days a week or somthing.

    I'm from Ontario so my choices are Western and UofT. UofT has an average GPA over 3.8 on the OMSAS scale where an A is a 3.9 and an A+ is 4.0. And you're right that Western takes your 2 best years...but, GPA averages for those two best years are always between 3.7 and 4.0 so it's definately harder than getting into let's say NYU or BU. The fact is that I could get into Harvard or UPenn but not into the University of Western Bloody Ontario. It's a lot more competitive up north hommies. :D BUT, that doesn't mean the schools are better. I'm really impressed with the facilities at a lot of US schools :thumbup:

    I have a question. For Canadians applicants, does attending big name university like UT or UBC in Canada as a undergrad give you some edge on applying to US dental schools compare to those who went to less known schools (i.e University of Guleph) ?

    Hahaha :laugh: It's a decent school. At UPENN there are actually 2 Canadians from Simon Frasier University. And some more from UofT.

    I think UofT and McGill are the big ones in Canada.

    Hey Ecoli, I just wanted to comment on your above post in that thread that was closed. You stated that in Canada, the admissions process is more fair and that you hate the US because many people get in because of connections?

    Oh my friend.....are we being a bit naive here? I dont care where you are in the world, but connections gets you places ANYWHERE....be it Canada, US, Europe, Asia...even communist Cuba! In almost any field, connections will get you places. Thats just life.

    You wanna specialize? You're in for such a suprise. Just wait to see the politics that are involved.....you do realize that many of your future classmates will be sons/daughters of dentists....so when they graduate, they have a cushy practice to fall into without any work.....will you be pissed at them? Do you fault them for this? Just play the cards you're dealt with and stop whining.

    And dont go around and try and paint a fairytale picture of Canada. Trust me, Im damn proud to be Canadian and love that country to death, but I aint gonna try and convince myself that its perfect and free from the realities of the world.
