• MSO wishes the best of luck to all users with upcoming interviews! For those interviewing at universities that do not have applicants sign an NDA, it would be greatly appreciated if you could send me (Crow) a PM with your interview questions to help future users. These will not be shared publicly until all interviews for that university have been completed. Cheers! ETA: Please check out our new Interview Portal!

50 spots/150 interview, by the time you include drop outs and people choose other universities etc. you are pretty much left with a 50/50 chance of getting in. Not sure about topups.
There has historically been top ups, but idk when/if they will come. They might have just decided to not both with them

I just got an offer for Latrobe dentistry, im a non standard applicant who appliednfor their Aspire program a few months ago and got accepted.

however I'm still waiting for offers from several interstate unis. should I enroll at Latrobe first and then withdraw later if needed?

Have La Trobe offers already come out? or is it just for those who applied for the aspire program?

I have also received an offer for La Trobe dentistry today. Just for your reference, I am a non-standard and I did not apply through the Aspire program. My UCAT is in the 97th %ile.

I also have UCAT of 97%, I'm also a non-standard but not sure why I didn't receive one?

I reckon it's because I did not fill out the personal statement. Didnt know i needed too.

That is indeed surprising, I looked up their website and apparently the early round offer is 15 Nov (today). I also didn’t submit a personal statement on VTAC, so it can’t be related to the statement. I do hope you get it next week though!

Ah wow thats interesting... I'll give them a call up on Monday during business hours to see what is going on. Nope, haha I also had La Trobe dentistry as my first preference. Maybe it's because I haven't completed 1 FTE yet (only 0.75 as i have one semester left?)
Thanks heaps anyways - I'll let you know what happens!

Ahh that could be the reason, I have a completed degree. Good luck 😄

Hello, this may be a dumb question but I was wondering if the universities are looking for cumulative GPA's or the year's GPA. For example, would they be looking at all my GPA's from my 3 years of uni or would they look at last year's+1st semester or would they look at solely this year's? Thank you!

Hello, while I’m not an administrator, but from what I’ve been reading on this forum, I’m fairly certain that they look at your cumulative GPA, ie. the GPA that will appear on your academic transcript.

couldn't find the adelaide dentistry thread so putting it here instead - for anyone who's done the interview before (my apologies if there was an nda), 1. did interviewers know if you were a nonstandard or not?
2. was there a time limit on each question? (i've heard they're quite strict about the 15mins so do they cut you off to squeeze in all the questions)
