I'd estimate that our year level is at least 2/3 school leavers while the rest are over 22ish. I honestly don't think it has a huge impact on the individual though.
By the way, this is the dentistry forum for JCU. :)
Yes it would be ideal for a GPA of 5.75+ but keep in mind that the application is going to be more heavily weighted than your academic ability as there is no interview for domestic entry students.
mm i guess you could say that too. but I'm saying that since you have dinner in the dining hall at the lodge every night, it's much easier to be "social". of course the beaches is basically right next to it too haha
looking to forward to meeting you :D
I second that onytae. If you can, pick the second courtyard because you can actually study. I'd recommend living in the student lodge for at least the first few weeks cos its quite a social environment to get to know new people and if you're comfortable, you can make the decision to move out...
I'm a domestic student but I only had one reference letter. I think it's best if you have 3 reference letters though. The interview is clearly a significant step for the university to physically see what kind of person you are, and how you could be a prospective dental student, is it not?
The beaches apartments are about a 7 minute walk to uni so you can get by without a car etc.

I'm not sure how the school fees work with international students too.
It is about $150 a week at he beaches and it is VERY nice there. You're looking at around $100 a week for groceries and bills...
It's likely that your tertiary-standard mathematics unit can satisfy the pre-requisite but I recommend calling the university administration to clarify this. It is definitely not the end of your goal. There are many mature-entry students in the course and you can always apply next year! :)
Hello and welcome!
I'm currently a first year dental student at JCU and I'm enjoying it very much. I got an OP 2 and I'm non rural. MELBOURNE WOO!!!
Anyway, you're looking for an ATAR of 98+ for a competitive score if you're non-rural like myself. Keep up the hard work!
Many people applying...
No they did not call me up. I know that they called international students in july for obvious reasons. I was notified of my offer in mid jan through QTAC, just like other QTAC applicants. Also, the gpa of 5.75 was from a student who had studied Bach of Oral Health and is working part time as a...
