    Hi everyone!
    I am new to the forums and have decided to apply for dentistry in Australia. So far I have submitted my application to CSU, Adelaide and Griffiths. I applied to Queensland as well but was told that I do not meet the minimum GPA requirement of 6.5 (my GPA is 3.5/4.0 so I am not sure how it was converted). I am leaning more towards CSU and Griffiths since the tuition and living expenses at Adelaide will be close to half a million dollars. I was just wondering if someone could tell me about their experiences studying dentistry at any of the three universities, I have applied to. My transcripts have already been assessed by Adelaide and CSU and I have been invited for a skype interview at CSU and have also been deemed eligible to register for the PQA, which is required for Adelaide. I tried contacting Griffiths to find out the requirements but was told it will be assessed on a case by case basis, so I am a bit unsure what their requirements were and was wondering if I have a good chance with my GPA.

    Hey,

    I'm looking to apply for MD programs after writing the GAMSAT this September. If you haven't already, check out Oztrekk- they have been very helpful and i've only scratched the surface with questions as i'm still a little ways away from applying.

    Hi,

    I was in a similar situation to you a couple years ago and was accepted in to GU. I had 3.7ish GPA, I know a couple people that got in with a 3.5. The average is probably around 3.6 . Also depends on your background, theres some students with masters and PHD's, some with bachelors. I would apply and see what happens. Where are you from?
