Dental School Consulting | MDconsultants



Guidance for future applicants

This is intended for students in the 1st or 2nd year of their undergraduate program, and for high school students who are interested in dentistry. Topics that we can discuss include “course selection to maximize your GPA,” “building your autobiographical sketch,” and “taking the DAT.” We are also able to offer concrete advice on more basic skills like “time-management” and “getting a research position.” Our consultants are also able to recommend research, volunteer, internship, and travel/international opportunities to applicants seeking to distinguish themselves from their peers.

Comprehensive application planning

This is intended for 3rd or 4th year students (or graduate students) who are applying to dental school during the current application cycle. Our aim here is to help relatively well-prepared applicants organize and polish their application. After discussing your background, we can identify themes that are likely to resonate with the admissions committee and suggest topics that could be addressed in your personal statement. We can also offer advice on referee selection and recommend applying to a set of schools where you are most likely to gain admission.

Application review

This is usually a two-step process, with Step 1 being a content review where we comment on the appropriateness of your subject matter, and Step 2 being a review of your grammar, style, vocabulary, and tone. To minimize costs, we recommend using us primarily as a “content review,” and utilizing free resources such as the Career Centre or Writing Centre at your institution to fine tune your grammar. We will however be happy to assist you with both steps if required.

Mock interviews

We are able to offer assistance with the traditional interview, the MMI format, and the CDA structured interview. Our consultants are also able to provide information on grading policies and the personality test.
