    I couldn't find any information regarding this on their site. Which schools do not accept the Canadian DAT?

    Good question...but it would best be answered by calling the individual schools you are interested in yourself as the information on SDN is not always as up to date since many answers are based on the years we applied and what a school accepts as far as Canadian DATs could change from year to year.

    Thanks for replying. You're in Pacific? Does the school have any students who applied from Canada?

    Pacific seems awesome. I would really like to get in that school. Unfortunately, Canada is very competitive to get into dental school compared to the States.

    I would think it a bit unfair that any US schools would accept the Canadian DAT if we cant apply to Canadian schools with a US dat..... :idea:

    It would have helped if you looked it up in ADEA Official Guide to DS.

    Ah yes! The superiority of Can applicants.

    Yes they do. I took the Canadian DAT and applied to UoP and they accepted my scores.

    I'm applying to Toronto and Western Ontario with my American DAT scores. Their website says they will accept them as long as I am not from Canada.
