    @mighty and @Hutcherson are both recent CSU dentistry grads who are still around on here occasionally - hopefully they'll be able to answer your questions about CSU student life next time they're on. Also if you look around the forums here (or even on mighty or Hutch's blogs) I'm sure someone will have written up a couple of posts on what life is like at CSU.

    Congrats on your Griffith offer, by the way! If you've got in there and managed to get an interview at CSU, you must have some pretty decent grades behind you!

    Out of interest, do you mind if I ask why you're looking at studying dentistry in Australia rather than at home in Canada or the US?

    Thanks, I'll definitely take a look at their blogs.

    Yeah not bad, I just completed my BSc and definitely did a lot better in the last couple years GPA wise.

    No not at all! I had a lot of interest in CSU mainly because of their focus on rural and regional healthcare. In my opinion and based on the research I've done, there isn't a school in Canada that focuses on those dynamics quite like CSU does. Also the fact that you get 5 years of hands on experience is pretty awesome. The dentists that I've shadowed and spoken with all emphasized the importance of manual dexterity. So, I think that by attending CSU I'll be able to build those skills over the 5 years and be a more effective/efficient dentist. As for the states, the few schools that are international friendly don't have much focus on rural healthcare. Based on that, I don't think those schools were really right for me.

    Hey sorry for the late reply, but I ended up accepting my offer at griffith and withdrew my application at CSU. How'd it go for you?
